Pablo

(New Jersey)


Pablo is a very sweet and gentle little fellow. He is small and weighs about 29 pounds. He came to ABR from overseas as part of the International Program so very little is known about his past. I suspect he did not have a very happy life before coming to America. Pablo was very fearful of humans when he first arrived but has made substantial progress in his socialization. It has taken him quite some time to learn to trust people. We have allowed him to move forward at his own pace.

He would do best with older children who will allow him to befriend them in time. He loves other dogs and gets along very well with the resident Brittanys. Play is Pablo’s middle name since he is about 2 years old. He would do best in a quiet home with other dogs to pattern his behavior after and where someone is home most of the time.

He does have a prey drive so I wouldn’t trust him with cats. A secure physical fence is a must for this little guy for he is an escape artist. If there is a way out he’ll find it whether it’s over or under the fence.

Pablo is a 2 year old orange and white Brittany. He is heart worm and leishmania negative. He is house trained and crate trained. Pablo walks nicely on a leash but will need further training on commands. Pablo is a work in progress and will require a great deal of patience. If you feel this sweet, gentle little guy is the pup for you please fill out an adoption application and mention his name.

Myka

(New York)


Tiny Little, as we affectionately call this little one, is super sweet and is certainly on the tiny side as she weighs in at only 20 lbs!! She came to us with an unknown past and is from ABR’s overseas program from Serbia. We picked up Tiny at the airport in Boston and didn’t know what to expect- boy were we pleasantly surprised!

Tiny Little has been a bundle of fun, and since she now doesn’t have to hunt for food on the streets of Serbia, she has settled in nicely with her foster sister. Tiny is very connected with her foster sister and looks to her for “all things to do and places to go”. We would like to see Tiny go to a home with another dog. We have not seen her around cats- so we are unsure regarding them. She has a very strong hunting drive and cats could possibly be at risk; squirrels have certainly come to fear her. A good sturdy physical fence is a must due to her strong hunting drive and her inquisitive, exploratory nature. An electric fence would not be enough for her. Tiny is very well socialized and loves all people, kids and dogs.

Tiny Little is full of puppy fun even though our Vet believes she is about 2 years old. While in Serbia she was found near a dumpster with two “tiny” puppies that she had recently birthed. We have been working on house training and are making headway, but we have a small bit more to go. She has had an occasional accident, particularly after drinking large amounts of water following exercise, and we neglected to allow her back outside.

Honestly, all Tiny Little wants is to be loved and to have all the attention possible someone can give. She will love you forever if you have some time for petting her and love to share.

Tiny will need further training as she is “new” to what it’s like to live inside. She mostly comes when her name is called and she comes to a whistle. Tiny will need training in basic commands. We crate her when we leave the house and Tiny sleeps peacefully in her crate at night. We have had no problems at all- as long as she can see her Brittany foster sister and foster family all is well in her little world.

If you think Tiny is a good fit for you please fill out an adoption application and send it in to ABR.

Tiny Little is spayed, microchipped, up to date on shots, heartworm negative and on preventative for both heartworm and flea and tick.

Ari

(New York)


Are you searching for the exuberance of an older, slowing down, Brittany who thinks he is young? Do you want to provide a forever home to a senior Brittany? If so, then Ari is the boy for you! He has all the unbridled enthusiasm of a young Britt wrapped up in a slightly graying face and 9 year old body.

He is well-socialized and loves people. He also is getting along with his big and little sister Britts. Ari is one sweet, amiable Britt boy. He adores attention, is happy, loving, and has the exuberance of a typical Brittany. Such a very smart, loving boy will do best with a fenced yard to exercise those Brittany legs. Ari loves to explore the back yard, loves his walks and like a true Britt, tends to pull. Ari is not used to being on a leash and pulls hard, so a harness is recommended for walks. This boy needs be included in an active family’s day to day life. He craves and thrives on human companionship.

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. Ari deserves a chance at being loved, cuddled, and appreciated and to hear the words "good dog". He is a lover who wants to know where his people are at all times, and sleeps on his bed right next to his people. Can you be the person that gives Ari that chance?

He loves his people and likes other calm dogs. The only thing Ari is worried about is being alone for too long. He needs either somebody who is at home most of the time or company of another dog. He is currently living with two other dogs in his foster home and can be left for a short time alone with them.

His list for a perfect home includes people to love him, lots of attention and some quality chill time. He really needs someone who is home a good portion of the day. He has shown some anxiety when left alone. His two female Britt housemates and the TV on make being home alone tolerable. He is looking for a forever home with parents who can give him all the love He deserves. In return, he will give you an ear to listen, a chin on your knee and unmeasured love.

History:

Ari is a rescue from Serbia. This beautiful boy is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventive. If you are interested in learning more about Ari, please submit an adoption application.

Paula

(New York)


Paula is on the small, STOCKY side weighing about 35.5 Lbs. and measuring about 14.5 inches at the shoulder. She is really gentle. I try to play with her and get her riled up and she will not bite me even if I put my hand in her mouth. She will lay on her back and slap your hands with her paws while wiggling all around.

She is happiest laying on the sofa next to you. I think she would be OK with any age kids but you would have to be a little careful with very small children. She really likes to be with people.

Paula is not good at holding her business. She has a schedule once in the morning, once at 3pm, and once late at night. While I always work from home she checks to make sure I'm there about every 15 minutes. You might find a toy with the inside ripped out on occasion. On a Saturday morning we can sleep in and she has no problem sleeping in as well. She likes sleeping on her bed in our room.

Paula needs to have a physically fenced in yard to safely run around in. She walks very well on a leash but likes, and with her extra weight needs, to run around as well. Paula has an overwhelming urge to hunt. She is great when she is loose and you have her attention, but if she sees a squirrel, cat, rabbits, etc. She will go after it with gusto. She will not listen to anything you say – she is gone. In a fenced yard it is not a problem as she has nowhere to go but out loose I think she would RUN FOREVER. Due to Paula’s high prey drive, she can NOT go to a home with cats.

Paula is a little cuddly teddy bear with a lot of love to give and to get. She loves to give out kisses and just loves her scratches and pets. She would let you pet her forever if she had it her way. Paula loves her people and would love to have someone home with her and who wants to spend lots of time with her. She would even like to have another Britt in the home to keep her company as she enjoys the company of the resident Brittanys.

History:

Paula was rescued from Serbia, she was found in a cemetery pregnant full of fleas and ticks, and was so sick that a transfusion was necessary and she lost her puppies. The wonderful people in Serbia helped her get healthy enough for her to travel. Once Paula arrived with her foster she then had to be treated for heartworm but we are happy to say she is now heartworm free and she is now living the good life.

If you are interested in Paula, then please fill out the adoption application. Paula is up to date on her shots, spayed and microchipped, as well as on heartworm preventative.

Dora

(New York)


Dora is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met. Being an international rescue we don’t know much about her background, but I don’t think her life there was very happy. When she first came here she was timid and slow to warm up to people. Now she is much more open to people and is pretty quick to trust them.

She was not very socialized with other dogs but that too has improved. We have a lot of family and friends with dogs and she has learned to coexist, almost even play with them. She would do OK with a family with other dogs as long as they are kind of “chill”. She will lay on the floor or sofa with them but if they want to do the dog play/wrestle thing she gets very defensive and doesn’t consider it play. On the other hand if they are outside running around, she happily runs around with them. I think she even enjoys their company. She would do best with smaller dogs, she is more intimidated by larger dogs.

Dora is on the small side weighing about 26 Lbs. and measuring about 15 inches at the shoulder. She is really gentle. I try to play with her and get her riled up and she will not bite me even if I put my hand in her mouth. She will lay on her back and slap your hands with her paws while wiggling all around. She is happiest laying on the sofa next to you. I think she would be OK with any age kids but you would have to be a little careful with very small children. She really likes to be with people, and when I say "with" I mean ON people. If you are sitting on the sofa she will come running in and jump right up and land on you. She might inadvertently hurt a small child.

Dora is house trained. When I work from home she sits under my desk at my feet most of the day. When I go into the office she is home alone for 9 or 10 hours, with the run of the house, and has never had an accident or chewed anything. On a Saturday morning we can sleep in and she has no problem sleeping in as well. Dora is good at holding her business.

Dora needs to have a physically fenced in yard to safely run around in. She walks very well on a leash but likes to run around as well. The only bad thing I could say about Dora is she has an overwhelming urge to hunt. She is great when she is loose and you have her attention, but if she sees a squirrel, cat, deer, etc. She will go after it with gusto. She will not listen to anything you say – she is gone. In a fenced yard it is not a problem as she has nowhere to go but out loose I think she would chase an animal from NYC to the Adirondack Mountains.

Dora would not do well in a house with cats. Dora is great in a car. We have taken her for 4 hours drives, she lays down and you don’t even know she is there.

Dora is spayed, current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventive. If you are interested in learning more about her, please submit an adoption application. Dora would make a wonderful addition to any family.

History:

Dora used to be called Dona. She didn’t answer too well to Dona when we got her but now responds well to Dora. I think she likes the name better. Dora is an international rescue from Serbia and came to the US with heart worm. After finishing her long treatment she really perked up. She was retested 6 months after her last treatment and has been declared cured and ready to move into her forever home.

   

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.
