Oreo

(Alabama)


Dog Story:
Hola, helloooo...My name is Oreo and I am from dry, sunny Spain. Since I have been in this country, I have done many things and met many people. I have enjoyed almost everything. I have also met Harvey and Irma. I didn’t enjoy them. Hopefully, I will not be meeting Senorita Marie. Other then that things are going well for me. I know you are looking at my pictures and asking how is he a Brittany? He is black and white. And like the cookie I have a soft mushy center but I digress. You see, I am a French Brittany from Spain now living in Alabama. I am a little United Nations. I have learned many things. My English is getting better every day. I have learned sit and kennel and outside. And, of course, I come when I am called. I would not like to miss something fun or good to eat. I am very good at waiting patiently. I also like the car rides, I only wish Herself would let me help her drive. I am also learning to hunt a little green ball. Since I am a lover and not a hunter, I really don’t see the point of hunting the green balls. You can’t eat them and even though they squeak I do not think they are alive. I don’t think Herself really wants to eat them either since she keeps throwing them away but then asking me to go get them when she changes her mind. But we Spanish men like to please our women so I go and get it for her and she calls me a muy bueno boy. Her Spanish she not good. Truthfully I think that is all she knows. But I have learned that she thinks I am a very good boy who would be a wonderful hunter of little green balls. So if you have little green balls that you might like to eat, call me and I will find them for you. Your friend, Oreo

History:
Oreo was found as a stray in Spain.  This beautiful boy is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.  If you are interested in Oreo, please submit an adoption application and mention Oreo-5663.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Pau

(Florida)


Dog Story:
Hola!  Me llamo Pau and I came to Florida from Spain, where “Pau” means “little” in the Catalan language.  You could call me “little” in size since I only weigh around 30 pounds, but I am very big in personality!  I’m a joyous bundle of activity always ready to go with full-speed Britt energy.  If there is running, playing, small creatures to chase or any kind of adventure to be had, I want to be a part of it.  I am a handsome orange roan French Brittany with a wagging tail that’s always twirling around with me.  My foster mom says I’m the perfect running buddy plus lap dog, which sounds like a great combination for anyone who enjoys young Brittany pups!

At my foster home I’ve had so much fun keeping super busy every day.  We go running and hiking on nature trails to chase little critters and socializing at the dog park, but please watch me carefully because I have a bad habit of eating grass that gets me very sick!  I also love learning new tricks!  So far I’ve mastered lots of commands like sit, down, drop, wait, and place.  I love my crate and sleep tight in my cozy doggy den for night time and when mom is out.  I’m a little shy and timid meeting new people, especially little humans, but once I open up, I’ll never be able to get off your lap.  Little humans are confusing though, and I especially don’t like them too jumpy.  I love humans, don’t get me wrong!  We just need to grab a quick drink or a walk together for me to really get to know you!  I also get along with other doggo friends and have gone to work with foster mom and the veterinarian’s office.  I love to play tag, but I try to stay out of trouble when buddies are too ruff with me.  Danger is not my middle name, so I follow my foster mom around at all times.  I like to pretend to be her paw-dyguard and stand really close to her.  The only time I’m okay with not seeing her is bedtime when I can go into the crate to have some me-time.  I definitely need a home without cats, since I have a very high prey drive and get totally focused on chasing kitties and small critters. I have a cat roommate who I love to play with, but he doesn’t seem to like me very much.  I try to slide in underneath the couch really slowly next to him in order to woo him, but he still doesn’t accept me.  As long as I have zoomies in the house, I don’t think any cat would really like me.

Whenever I’m sitting patiently for my foster mom to give me food or open the door, she laughs at me because both of my lips get stuck underneath my teeth.  She says it looks like I’m smiling and that’s why it takes her longer to give me food, but I know it’s because she’s distracted by my cuteness.  Lately my foster mom has been grabbing my paw or pointing a finger at me saying bang.  I don’t understand what she’s doing but I like getting the treats afterwards.  Don’t worry though, I don’t go completely mutts!  I love cuddles and napping on the couch with the fam.  I adore attention and affection from people, but with my bouncy puppy energy will do best in a home with older children.  If you’re an active family ready for an exercise partner for workouts, taking snuggles and playing outdoors with me fur-ever, you might want to consider welcoming me to brighten up your home.

History:
Pau was rescued as a stray in Spain and arrived at his new foster home in Florida, full of happy smiles.  He is a total puppy in a petite package and will need an active home with a family ready to give lots of time and exercise to a young Brittany.  Pau is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.  If you are interested in Pau, please submit an adoption application and mention Pau-5664.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Pablo

(Maryland)


Dog Story:
Meet Pablo, our new little matador from Spain. And when we say little, we mean it! He is a 25 pound bundle of sweetness. There is not a mean bone in his body and likes other dogs and kids. Pablo was rescued in September, 2017 and is now an international traveler settling into the American way of life, with good care and food and lots of TLC. He is currently residing in a foster home with a young, active resident Brittany, and waiting for his own forever home. Pablo likes to play with stuffed animals and it is heard he will sleep in your bed if you want to cuddle.

Consider adopting this cute little boy. You don’t need to know Spanish to be his new best friend!! Please submit an adoption application if you are interested in Pablo.

History:
Pablo is one of our more recent rescues from Spain. We do not know much about his background. He was scared at first with all the changes he went through in Spain, and it has taken him a little time to warm up, but he is getting settled very quickly.

Noel

(Maryland)

Dog Story:
Noel is quite the beauty, and now being called Elie by her foster mom and dad. Elie is a quick learner and loves running in the yard and will occasionally get the “zoomies”. She has learned sit, lie down (sometimes) and wait. She will probably chase the resident cats if given a chance, so best there be no cats in her new home. Elie has a sweet, kind personality. She loves to be around her peeps and likes to cuddle on the bed. She seems to be OK with kids and gets along with other dogs. If you would like to learn more about Elie please submit an adoption application .

History:
Noel was surrendered by her mom with 2 other Brittanys due to a change in life event and she was no longer able to take care of them. ABR was there to help, and provide comfort to the owner that we would find them the best forever home.

Liz

(North Carolina)

Dog Story:
Hi! I’m Liz, but I don’t seem to know my name. In fact, I don't know much except "good girl". I’m so happy to meet you! Can you see my butt button wiggling? It wiggles a lot. I can hardly wait to give you kisses and put my paws in your lap. I loved everybody at the vet’s office and they loved me. I kissed the feet of a baby sitting in a stroller. Now it’s your turn.

I'm afraid of cats! Yes, terrified! I stood on my hind legs and screamed when I saw a small black kitten. And I walked in a big circle around an adult cat until she got up. Then I ran away from her.

My foster mom says I’m a good girl. I’m learning how to be a house pet. There are all kinds of things on the floor. She calls them toys and offers them to me. I don’t know what to do with them just yet, but am sure I will master that in no time flat! When I chewed on the corner of a rug she gave me a rawhide chip. I sure figured out what to do with that! Boy was it good!

I’m about 5 years old, fully vaccinated and spayed. My curly liver and white coat is so soft you’ll love to run your fingers through it. I’m a little bit heavy at 28 pounds but it’s all love and I am willing to share it with my new family!

If you think I am the gal for you, please fill out our online adoption application and mention Liz.

History:
Liz and her son JoJo were surrendered by their owner to the shelter as they had too many dogs

Rosie

(North Carolina)

Dog Story:
Rosie and her companion Luigi are a very bonded pair and will be adopted together. According to her foster mom, Rosie is so, so charming and it is easy to fall in love with her. Rosie came into rescue Heartworm positive. Over the last few months she has completed her treatment and is ready to stretch her legs in the yard with Luigi and her family of kids and furry companions she is currently living with. Rosie is admittedly a counter surfer and will need some corrections to deter that. Both Luigi and Rosie are good car riders, so they will be ready to go on their next adventure to their forever home. Her foster home- kids, adults and furry ones alike will miss them dearly, but the foster home will be ready to help another Britt (or two) in need.

If you are interested in Rosie and her companion Luigi, please submit an adoption application .

History:
Rosie and Luigi came into foster care after their owner passed away. Fortunately, a family member was kind enough to take them in, contacted ABR, and held onto them until we were able to find a foster home who could take both of them.

Luigi

(North Carolina)

Dog Story:
Luigi and his companion Rosie are a very bonded pair and will be adopted together. Luigi is a laid back kind of guy, and has taken the lead role in his foster home of “couch potato”. Any of the kids, adults and other furry companions in the home are welcome to join him, as he loves them all! The other side of Luigi emerges when he goes out into the yard. He loves to hunt for whatever has dared to breach the fence and enter his domain. He is playful and will come when called. Luigi’s foster mom says that he is easy to train. Both Luigi and Rosie are good car riders, so they will be ready to go on their next adventure to their forever home. His foster home- kids, adults and furry ones alike will miss them dearly, but the foster home will be ready to help another Britt (or two) in need.

Remington

(South Carolina)

Dog Story:
Hi there, my name is Remington. But, my foster dad calls me Remi or Rems. I am about 2 and a half years old. Currently, I live with my foster Dad and my Brittany brother and Whippet sister. I like them all, & they have taught me a lot, but I still have a lot to learn.

You see, I was an outdoor doggy and now I am adjusting to living inside. I do love my crate as I spent a lot of time in my crate is my former life. Everything now is so new to me and sometimes that can be scary! But, Dad tells me it is ok and I calm down. I am real sweet boy who needs some patience, guidance and lots of love. When Dad is watching TV I like to sit on the couch right next to him.

I am a little nervous getting in the car but am a great co-pilot once inside.  My foster dad says I am the best on leash and LOVE my walks!

So, if you would like to get to meet me and maybe give me my “forever home”, please fill out the online adoption application and mention Remington.  Then we can give you a call and talk (or you can talk to my foster Dad!). Oh, and I do love treats and I love when it is feeding time!! Anyway, I need to catch some zzzs on this comfy couch, while I am waiting for my new home.

 

History 
Remington was surrendered to ABR by a VA breeder along with his two sisters.  Times were getting tight financially and they needed to downsize.

JC

(West Virginia)


Dog Story:
Say Cheese!!! Hi friends, My name is JC (My foster mom calls me Jake.) I was picked up as a stray and no one came to claim me.

I'm a really sweet boy. I'll sit really pretty and come if you call and somebody in my past taught me some really good manners, because I know how to shake hands with you. The vet thinks I'm about 4 and I'm a pretty low key guy. I love a good walk, but I'm also ready to just hang out an chill with the resident 5 year old child. I'm a very patient boy and I'll lay right on the floor with her and let her play vet with me.

I actually have to visit the real vet a lot, because while I am mostly a healthy boy, I have heartworms. I'm just starting my treatment and will be with my foster family the rest of the summer while I undergo the expensive, long treatment that will help me get better so that I can finally get a furever family of my own.

If you can, will you consider being my Brittany Buddy. If you click on the banner above, you can donate to my medical care and help ABR get me all better and ready to adopt.

 

   

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.
