Eddie

(Illinois)

Eddie is handsome, big boy looking for his forever home. He’s a lovable lug who enjoys a rousing game of fetch, but also eagerly wants all the attention you will give. He loves his people, loves other dogs. Eddie so wants to be with and be part of your life. He has taken to all in the household like he has been here since he was a pup. 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 Eddie sounds like the boy for you please complete the adoption application.

History:

Eddie is an owner surrender to rescue. His family situation had changed, grown and were expecting another child. 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. We took Eddie in our foster care and the rest is history. Eddie has been neutered, microchipped, is current on all vaccinations, is Heart Worm negative and is on Heart Worm Preventative. All Eddie needs is his forever home.

Jeff

(Kansas)

Jeff was found with another Brittany running along a highway. A good Samaritan picked them up and took them to the shelter and ABR was contacted. The humane society had his name down as Jack but we got no reaction when we started using it, but his ears perked right up to Jeff (as we were going through multiple 'J' names)… so Jeff it has been at his foster home.

He has a great temperament and lets you pet anywhere you’d like but takes a little bit to warm up to you and his surroundings, but once he does he loves to be petted. He does act a bit timid and tucks his tail at times but I am sure in time that will subside. He has been great with adults, kids (we have a 4 year old and 10 month old) and he has been good with our family Brit but at times he will make a little rumble at our dog but that’s it. I think that may be because when he was picked up, he was with another Brittany and I believe that Jeff may have gotten picked on and has some minor wounds to prove it. All that being said, I think he would do fine with other dogs but I can’t speak for other animals, for example cats.

Judging by his temperament, I am not sure if he’d be a hunter and acts a bit skittish with loud noises but he does love to be outside. He is still very raw on basic training commands so he will take a bit of work with his obedience, but he’ll catch on. He has done OK on a leash and has done very well on the housebreaking side of things while in our care. He LOVES the dog door so he can come and go as he likes.

He has been sleeping on a dog bed in the bedroom. While the house is empty we tried to kennel him but he did not like it and he is a bit of an escape artist. We came home the first afternoon he was with us to him greeting us at the front door and his kennel still locked shut as we left it.

Jeff is up to date on his vaccines and is heartworm negative. If you are interested in Jeff, please fill out the adoption application and mention his name and ID #.

Maggie

(Minnesota)

Hi Brittany Friends! I am Maggie and I am looking for my furever home! I am very sweet and love everyone I meet! Foster mom says I am a little chunky, but we are working on that. I am in weight loss bootcamp right now and am doing great! I love playing ball in the back yard and I absolutely love going for walks. I don't pull on the leash because I don't want to be too far away from my people. I am good with kids, other dogs and cats. While I love playing ball, walking and playing with other dogs, my favorite place to be is right next to my people.

Maggie is an owner surrender, she came in to foster care after her family situation changed. She is a very sweet girl who wants nothing more than to lay by you and have you pet her. Maggie is a slightly..ok more than slightly..overweight, but we are working on it and she has already begun losing weight. She loves playing ball and listens very well when told to drop it. Maggie was trained as a hunting dog and did hunt with her previous owner for several years, although we are not sure how she does in the field. Maggie is great with kids, other dogs and cats. If you feel that Maggie is a good fit for you please fill out an adoption application. No sight unseen adoptions, we feel it is important for all family members, two and four legged, to meet Maggie and ensure a proper fit.

Sawyer

(Missouri)


Sawyer has been with us for a couple of months now and he is a real gentleman! He gets along well with our other two Britts and he loves everyone. Even though Sawyer has partial blindness he runs around the yard enthusiastically chasing squirrels with his two buddies.

Sawyer arrived in foster care with a couple of health problems that now appear to be under control. Prior to surgery to remove a large and irritating papilloma from his lower eyelid and to extract a decayed tooth it was discovered that he had high blood pressure. After two months on medicine to lower his blood pressure he sailed through the surgery with flying colors. Sometime in his past he was either hit by a car or had a stroke because there is some right sided facial paralysis and that accounts for his cute little lopsided smile. I suppose for a less resilient dog these problems might be an issue and slow him down, but not for Sawyer. His motto is “Life is Good!”

Sawyer’s wish list includes a loving family who will help him find his way in the dark and a fenced yard to keep him safe. A companion dog who will help him hunt the yard would be nice, but not absolutely necessary. Sawyer will enrich his new home with his enthusiasm for life and his perennial smile!

History:

Sawyer apparently was a stray who found his way to an animal shelter in Kentucky where he was cleaned up and brought up to date on his shots. After a month or so he was transferred to foster care in Springfield, Missouri, where he is now living.

   

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.
