Tarzan

(North Carolina)

Dog Story:
Hola to America!   My name is Tarzan- an American name for a handsome Spanish dude. I arrived in America with excitement and enthusiasm, looking forward to my new life. I have a hunting nose, which leads me to various parts of my new yard - looking for adventure. I am great with children and other dogs.

If you would like to learn more about our International rescue dogs and Tarzan, please submit an adoption application. Because of higher expenses for these Britts, to be able to save them and bring them to the USA, the adoption fee is $450.

History:
Tarzan was rescued in Spain and transported with the help of dedicated ABR volunteers.

Solo

(South Carolina)

Dog Story:
Hi, my name is Solo and I’m looking for my forever family. I have a lot of energy and love to play! I can be a bit rough as I love to give full body greetings. All I need is a bit of obedience training and I will be the greatest dog!

I love other dogs and all people! I’m a very happy dog who loves to cuddle. It would be great if my new home had someone who could be at home with me a lot or at least another dog to stay with me so I have company. My foster mom says I have a very soft mouth and sit real nice for a treat.

If you would like me to come home with you please fill out our adoption application mention Solo and perhaps we can meet sometime soon!

History:
Solo was surrendered by his owner, after changes in their health made them unable to care for him.

Tucker

(Tennessee)

Dog Story:
Tucker is a handsome, friendly 5-year old, orange and white Brittany who is ready for a new forever home!

Tucker is a fun, cheerful boy who loves his squeaky toys, going for long walks, taking car rides, and playing ball. He is all about his morning serving of peanut butter and his afternoon crunchy dog treat. He knows basic obedience commands and is housebroken. He is accepting of other dogs and is cat-friendly.

That said, while Tucker is a sweet boy, he does need a family that is experienced with and understands the particular needs of a “high maintenance” dog. He is headstrong and tends towards being fixated when outside so will need someone who can work with him using positive affirmations to reinforce appropriate behaviors and redirect his fixations. Additionally, Tucker suffers from separation anxiety so would do better in a household where someone either works from home or is only gone for short periods of time. He crates well at night for sleeping but gets anxious in a crate during the day and has broken out of his crate on several occasions. He does fine loose in the house when no one is home, but you can tell it’s still stressful for him to be left alone, even when there are other dogs in the house.

Tucker is an owner surrender because his owner was moving to an apartment and felt Tucker wouldn’t thrive in that environment. Tucker was raised with a young boy so is familiar with children. Although because he does have a tendency to jump when excited he might not be good around small children.

Tucker is heartworm negative, up to date on all shots, microchipped, and will be ready for adoption after his dental cleaning on May 30th.

Hank

(Virginia)

 

Dog Story:
Meet Hank.  Hank is a typical Brittany- his loves include adventure, his people, and the great outdoors. Hank is going on 6 yrs old and has been with his family all of his life including with his Britt sister.  If you have ever talked about active Brittanys, you might have heard the phrase “he needs a job”.  Hank is looking for employment.  He is not as laid back as his sister- not that he is wild, but has more of a sense of curiosity.  He currently has a large fenced area to spend most days in, which is great, but Hank needs more human companionship and direction to make the most of his adventurous personality. An active person, couple or family would be a great and fun match for Hank.  Just no feline companions, please.

Please submit an adoption application if you are interested in learning more about Hank

History:
Hank is currently residing with his family in Hume, Virginia.

Jackson

(Virginia)

Dog Story:
Are you searching for the exuberance of a young brittany? Do you want to provide a forever home to a senior brittany? If so, then Jackson is the boy for you! He has all the unbridled enthusiasm of a puppy wrapped up in a slightly graying face and 10 year old body.

Jackson has been an outdoor dog and never learned basic obedience or good manners. He can be a challenge but in a short time he has started to listen more attentively. We are working on "off" as he is a counter-surfer and "wait" as he tends to bolt through the door and he has made progress in both areas. He is well-socialized and loves people. He also is getting along with two females and a 16 year old male Britt. He has been challenged by the alpha female and immediately backed away. The former owner said he is ok with kids and cats. Jackson is not used to being on a leash and pulls hard so a harness is recommended for walks. He also seems very interested in the gate of the 4 foot chain link fence so a solid fence would be a better option for him.

Transitioning a dog to life in a house and sleeping in a crate requires patience. That combined with love is what Jackson needs most. Despite his sometimes rambunctious behavior, from the first night here he has displayed a willingness to please and that wide-eyed adoration of the human who scratches his ears that all fans of this breed know and love. We all deserve a 2nd chance. Jackson deserves a 2nd chance at being loved, cuddled, appreciated and to hear the words "good dog". Can you be the person that gives Jackson that chance??

Please submit an adoption application if you are interested in hearing more about Jackson.

History:
Jackson was surrendered by his family when there was nobody left to care for him. Jackson had been with the family all of his life, but was relegated to the outside yard with minimal attention. With that said, he is making up for all he missed in the first part of his life, and is looking for a home with people who will give him the attention, love and lots of petting he so deserves.

Guinness

(Virginia)

Dog Story:
Hi, my name is Guinness. I got my name because I'm the color of Guinness Stout and well, you see, stout would not be a word to describe me! I am a crate trained, handsome, and spunky 60lb Brittany/Irish setter mix. My three favorite things in life are food, my humans, and running around. Food is a great motivator for me; I spin around in circles while my foster mom prepares my meals. I will listen to commands when there are treats involved. I love to be cuddled and be near my humans, I will even moan in appreciation. Because I have some anxiety, the crate or my human’s laps are places I feel safe and secure. Lastly, exercise is really important to me. Whether it's running trails with my foster mom, going to the dog park, or sprinting back and forth in a back yard with a 6 foot fence, I need to get my energy out. Other things you should know about me? Squeaky toys and tennis balls are my favorite, and I love to talk and tell you all about my feelings. I try to talk to the passing cars and birds; but they don't seem to listen. While I love to play with my other Brittany siblings, I could be a solo dog- which means I get ALL the attention. Will you be my new forever parents?

History:
Guinness is returning to ABR after he has jumped the fence at his home in addition to a shift in health of his current family. He has been working with an obedience trainer and has made great progress but experiences some anxiety during transitions/changes in his environment. He will need a fence of 6ft. to help keep him safe, or a home dedicated to lots of on leash exercise and trips to the dog park as well as a home which is dedicated to continuing his obedience training. In addition, he would benefit from one canine companion, or humans which are home often.

Freckles

(West Virginia)

Dog Story:
Hi, my name is Freckles and I am a sweet, loving young lady. Although I am 10 years old, I have the energy of a young dog and can run with the best of them. I love, love, love to be petted. I will take all the attention you can give me. I am good to walk on lead but become excited when I see a squirrel or cat. It would be best for the cat to not live with me as my foster Mom thinks I might hurt one.

I love to be outside guarding the yard. I sit for treats, come when called; I do not jump on people and quietly sleep in a crate. I am spayed, up to date on vaccinations and on flea/tick and heartworm preventative.

History:
Freckles and Boone were surrendered by their owner and have lived together for ten years. It would be best for them to be adopted together. They stick together, it makes things easy and they keep each other occupied.

Boone

(West Virginia)

Dog Story:
This kind, gentle man loves to be close to his people, but will shy away and lay down to be petted. He loves to be outside and will guard his yard from morning to night. He is good to walk on lead until he sees a squirrel or cat, then in true Brittany fashion, he pulls. It will be very necessary for him to go to a cat free home.

He does not jump up on people, will sit for treats and comes when called. He will sleep quietly all night in his crate Although he is almost 10 years old, he has the energy of a young dog therefore he needs a yard with a fence.

Boone is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and is on monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.

History:
Boone and Freckles were surrendered by their owner and have lived together for nearly 10 years. Therefore, it would be best for them to be adopted together. They stick together, it makes things easy and they keep each other occupied.

   

Brittanys usually live 12-15 years, so if you are contemplating adoption, please be prepared to make that kind of commitment to the dog. Brittanys love their people and require personal attention every day.

Dogs placed by American Brittany Rescue, Inc. have been rescued from a shelter, found as a stray, or given up by an owner who could no longer keep or care for them. All dogs in foster homes have been (or will be) spayed or neutered, checked for heartworm, and are usually on preventative medication for heartworm. A dog's foster family can give you valuable information about its personality and temperament.

There are many more Brittany's available but not yet listed on the web site. These pages are always changing as homes are found and new dogs are placed into rescue. Please contact the State Coordinator for more information.

If you know of a Brittany who needs a home, please contact your nearest State Coordinator for assistance.
