Gibb

(Illinois)


Gibb is handsome, sweet boy looking for his forever home. He’s a lovable soul who enjoys a rousing game of fetch, but also eagerly wants all the attention you will give. He loves his people, and loves other dogs. Gibb so wants to be with and be part of your life. He’s smart, loving and so eager to please. He loves horsing around with you and his toys. Given the chance, he’d love to be your bedmate.

Please, NO long distance or sight unseen adoptions for this sweet boy. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit. If Gibb sounds like the boy for you please complete the adoption application.

History:

Gibb is a return to rescue. In the last 18 months his family situation had changed, grown and had another child. New jobs take his humans away from the house for long hours. This charming boy was not getting the attention and exercise he needed. The family realized this was not going to improve so they contacted ABR. Gibb is still with his owners as they want to choose the best home possible for this boy. Gibb is neutered, microchipped, is current on all vaccinations, is Heart Worm negative and is on Heart Worm Preventative. All Gibb needs is his forever home.

Marshall

(Illinois)

Sweet and handsome Marshall is a Britt boy who is looking for his forever home. He is an affectionate goof ball who lives with another male Britt. He is smart, active, loving and really just wants your attention. He’d love to play with another active dog or older kids. He is learning basic commands and is a joy to watch run the back yard.

Marshall is a bit of a counter surfer and mouthy, but we are working on that. He is a wonderful dog who will require time, patience and consistency. He will do best with a fenced yard and a family where someone is around a good portion of the day. This boy needs be included in an active family’s day to day life. He thrives on human attention and mental stimulation.

Marshall really needs an experienced Brittany owner. He has endless energy and needs guidance to channel it in an appropriate way. No long distance or sight unseen adoptions for Marshall. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit.

Marshall is a sweet dog and a wonderful Brit who is anxious for your forever love and companionship. If you would like to meet this wonderful guy complete the adoption application.

History:

Marshall was a refugee from a shelter. A friend of rescue saw him and notified ABR. We brought him into our foster care program. The rest is history. Our boy is neutered, is current on all vaccinations, Heart Worm negative and on Heart Worm Preventative. He is also microchipped. Now all he needs is wonderful forever home to call his own.

Lacy

(Minnesota)


Hello Brittany loving friends! I am Lacy and I am looking for my furever home! My foster mom says I may be 12 years young, but I do not seem to know that. I love running in the backyard with my foster sisters while hunting the local rabbits. (Don't worry, I am not the one that catches them!) I love my foster sisters, but I really love my humans, all I really want to do is to snuggle. I love belly rubs, ear scratches and treats...maybe a little too much, I am on a diet right now because I am a little heavier than I should be!

Foster mom here, Lacy is an amazing girl who is as sweet as pie! She is great with other dogs, cats and kids. Her age may be 12, but someone forgot to tell her that. When she is not running in the backyard she can often be found upside down on her dog bed, the sofa, or right in the middle of the floor. She loves attention and will demand that you pet her. One look at that sweet face and it is easy to give in. Lacy is current on vaccines and her blood work was perfect. She does have very small tear ducts and so her eyes do drain, but there is nothing medically wrong with them. If you have room in your heart and home for this sweet girl, please fill out our adoption application. No sight unseen adoptions. All family members, two legged and four must be present to ensure this sweet girl is a perfect fit.

Cash

(Missouri)


November was Cash’s birth month and he is now a cool 11 years old! He is such a sweet and funny little brittany. Cash had belonged to abrittany breeder and was surrendered to the community animal control when his owner could no longer take care of him, and then ABR picked him up from the very nice people at animal control. He is groomed, has had his teeth cleaned, is chipped, neutered and up to date on all his shots and now Cash is ready for the next chapter in his life. 

Because he had been kept in a kennel most of his life everything is new and exciting to Cash: a big backyard to run in, toys to play with, squirrels to chase - he even caught one the other day! As my vet said, Cash is living the good life now. But what Cash loves most of all about this new life is the love and attention he gets from his people. 

Unfortunately, Cash has a few challenges that we are working on. The major one is that after he was neutered in December he decided that he had absolutely no use in his life for other dogs and he became aggressive toward our male brittany. We were hoping that with time his hormones would settle down and his attitude would change, but it hasn’t. It would be best if he were the only dog in the family. And secondly, he is not quite house broken. We have to take him out regularly to avoid accidents - so I guess you might say that he has us well trained. The good news is that he does sleep through the night without having to go outside. And he is improving. 

If you would like to take this sweet old lovable boy into your life please fill out an adoption application with ABR and give his foster family a call so we can talk. Because Cash is a senior dog he is eligible for the senior adoption program so if he is adopted by a senior there is no adoption fee.

Hank

(Nebraska)

Hank has really surprised us over the last few months. Good surprises that is! He is doing really well and has established a regular routine with his medication. We have seen no signs of his disorder (Masticatory Muscle Myositis) taking over his life. He has really come out of his shell and we can tell that he is happy. Our first few months with him were mostly getting the right dose of steroids to control his jaw muscles. He was more of an outside dog during the spring and summer months as all he wanted to do was go outside. Now because of the cold he has adjusted pretty well to the inside. He likes to play chase with our dogs, he chews deer antlers, rolls around and stretches on the carpet. He will lay next to you on the couch or floor and he will occasionally come over for a pet, to give a kiss or just want some attention. We did find out that he marks but we have found wrap that he wears that does prevent that. He will go days without marking but he will have an occasional one that the wrap catches. He sleeps in his kennel at night and while we are away. He would need a fenced in yard. He does know how to sit and come. He is very active and curious and if you think Hank could fit in with your lifestyle please fill out the adoption application and we can discuss more about Hank with you.

History:

Hank came to us from Kansas and he had 2 previous owners. We have a full medical history thanks to them and keeping great records of his health. This is unusual for a rescue but they really want Hank to go to a good home. When we had Hank checked out by our vet we were curious about his skull condition. He lacks the chewing muscles on the top and bottom of his mouth and head. We sent in a blood sample to the University of California as they are the only school that tests blood for a condition called Masticatory Muscle Myositis. It came back positive for this disease. We don’t know the cause of this (it could be from genetics, it could be environmental). What we do know is that it affects all dogs differently but can be treated with steroids.

Lady

(Wisconsin)

Hi Brittany Lovers! My name is Lady, but my foster dad calls me Lady Bird. I am 10 years 5 months young and came to ABR as an owner surrender. Before coming to this foster home I lived outside in a fenced in area with a dog house. It got cold out there! Now I am laying on a leather couch and chilling with two britt girls my foster dad owns.

Because I was an outside girl who could go to the bathroom any time I needed to, I have had some accidents in the house. My foster dad takes me out every two hours or less when I'm not crated so I can avoid the embarrassment of an accident. When I'm crated at night I generally sleep through the night.

I am currently recovering from surgery to remove two growths, clean my teeth, and get my microchipping done. My surgical staples will be in for a couple weeks. I feel much better, thank you! My foster dad promises me I will not return to the outside life! I love to lay by my foster and shower him with kisses of appreciation.

Because I am a senior, my foster dad thinks I would fit best with a newly retired couple who could walk me during the day and take me out frequently for quick potty breaks. A canine brother or sister would be great! No sight unseen adoptions for me as my foster dad wants to see my perspective parents interact with me and assure a good fit. If you are interested in Lady please complete the adoption application.

History:

Lady is an owner surrender to rescue. Her owner was moving and could not take her with him. She is spayed, vaccinations updated, Heart worm tested, on preventive and micro chipped.

   

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.
