Wrigley

(Illinois)

Wrigley, what a wonderful Britt boy who is looking for his forever home. He is an affectionate guy who is very generous with his Brittany kisses. Wrigley is always excited to meet someone new, everyone is a potential playmate or cuddle buddy. He is very social, great with other dogs and likes meeting new people. He knows many of the basic commands and is learning the ropes from his resident Britts. He loves romping in the yard, searching for critters and exploring on his walks.

He will do best with a fenced yard to exercise those Brittany legs. This boy MUST be placed with another dog and be included in an active family’s day to day life. He craves that canine companionship and is a much more confident puppy with it. Please, no long distance or sight unseen adoptions for Wrigley. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit.

Wrigley 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:

Wrigley was an owner surrender to ABR. He came to us via Craig’s List and we have no background on this sweetie. 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.

Bruno

(Illinois)

What can I tell you - Bruno is a beauty. Was underweight when he came into rescue and is currently at a healthy 53 pounds. He's a sweet boy and very loving.

There is some concern about socialization. It's my understanding he was scavenging for food with a pit bull and may have had altercations. From what I can tell he is just very curious. I tried introductions with one of mine but he became so excited that exercise was ended due to heartworm concern.

This boy needs be included in an active family’s day to day life. Crated for long hours will result in a wild man with excess energy to burn. No long distance or sight unseen adoptions for Bruno. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit.

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

History:

Bruno was an owner surrender to a shelter. The shelter notified ABR and the rest is history. Bruno came to us heartworm positive. Bru completed his heartworm treatment and was tested on August 22. Our boy is neutered, is current on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative. He is also microchipped. Now all he needs is wonderful forever home to call his own.

Jake

(Kansas)

Hi there! I’m Jake, a purebred Brittany with the AKC papers to prove it. I’m a 52-pound handsome boy who would love to please my new forever owners. My favorite activities are talking walks, keeping my yard free of squirrels, playing fetch with a tennis ball, oh and of course, accepting all the pets and rubs that are handed out.

Jake’s foster parents here. Jake is such a sweet boy who really likes to be happy. Jake does get along with other dogs (don’t know about cats), but also seems like he would be perfectly fine getting all the attention by himself. Jake has been recently neutered, micro-chipped, is heartworm negative, up to date on all vaccinations and in very good shape. He is easy to walk on a leash and, as stated by Jake himself, fetches a tennis ball and will drop it at right at your feet every time. Jake has been an outdoor dog, so we are working on his inside skills and he is learning rapidly. We don’t know if Jake has ever hunted but he shows a lot of drive along those lines, so he might be a good candidate.

If you would like to adopt Jake please complete the adoption application and mention his name and ID#.

History:
Jake is an owner surrender whose owner passed away and the family couldn’t take care of him, so they contacted ABR to help find him a forever home.

Kenna

(Minnesota)


Meet sweet, funny Kenna who came all the way from Spain just to find her happy-ever-after here in the states!!

Kenna is around 8 years young and is still very active for that age. She loves to run and play and even enjoys the dog park here. Kenna who is fondly called "Bean" would remind you of that wonderful temperament dog you see in movies where the children will dress the dog up in clothes, etc. She is that tolerant and is very gentle of all things.

To add to Kenna's resume is that she is all of 24 lbs and quite small. Kenna is totally cool to be around cats (she ignores them as well as other dogs). Kenna is more of a loner than one that needs to have another dog around as a buddy or to be happy. She is quite comfortable in her own skin but will live with another dog or cat as long as they don't ask much of her!!

Kenna is also crate trained and housebroken. There really isn't anything bad about her other then she likes to play the devil's advocate when she feels she isn't getting enough attention, she will yelp and limp at times getting off the couch and such. We have had her totally checked out and the vet has found nothing wrong with her. She has a clean bill of health. An active family that will take her out in the fields to do what she loves and let her be an active part of the family would be her dream home!

If you feel you Kenna is what you have been looking for, then please fill out the adoption application and mention her name and ID # and we will be glad to tell you more about her. Kenna is up to date on her vaccines and is heartworm negative and on preventative.

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.

   

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.
