The following Brittanys are available for adoption directly from local shelters or other rescue organizations because there are no ABR rescue volunteers close or there is no room available for them in ABR foster homes.

Please note: Our information on these dogs is very limited. We offer this as a service to Brittanys in need, but the health or temperament of these dogs has not been assessed and cannot be guaranteed by American Brittany Rescue. Please check with the shelter contact to find out what kind of screening has been done and to find out more about the dog.

Please e-mail us if you adopt a dog listed on this page, so we can keep our information current. Thank you!

Macy - 5531

 Hi Brittany Fans!  My name is Macy and I am four years old.  I was born on Thanksgiving and my owner named me after a parade that day.  I am a very loving and very smart girl.  I know lots of cute tricks like, sit, stay, dance, kennel up, high five, lay down, roll over, hunt, fetch, let go and more.  Although I am not trained to do so, I love to hunt and kill small animals.  I have killed many squirrels, rats, moles, a possum, rabbits, birds, a snake and even a baby gator!  I love to leave them in front of the door for my owners to discover.  I think that is so sweet and prance around like a proud girl.  After a good hunt or playing around, I love to come inside and cuddle on the couch.

Although I do love every human I have ever met I am a very bossy, dominate girl.  I do not like other dogs and will let them know.  I love humans, but I hate other dogs.  I have never been allowed up close to a cat, but chances are I wouldn’t like them either.

So, I grew up in Mississippi on the Gulf Coast.  I lived in a huge yard that included a swamp.  I was on an underground shock fence (which I do great with and WILL NOT CROSS.) I patrolled my yard like a champ. It was a great life and I was happy.  Then one day some people came and loaded up everything we owned and next thing I knew we were living in a new house and a much, much smaller yard.  I hate to complain, but I am miserable since we moved.  There is no room to run, my owners are gone so much and I have had to entertain myself.  I tear up stuff and dig and wish I could run and play like I used to.  I want to be in a home where I can be a Brittany and do Brittany stuff.  Here are some facts about me:

·         I have AKC papers and a beautiful pedigree

·         I am great with all children and people in general.  I have never shown aggression toward a human.  Never, ever.

·         I am smart.

·         I like to be outside or inside.  I do well inside but occasionally have an accident or mark my territory.

·         I am the boss when it comes to other dogs and I don’t mind a vicious fight.  I need to be in a one dog home and on a leash around other dogs.

·         I like to keep busy and love to run and play. 

·         I love to learn new tricks and please my owners.

·         My owners have never abused me and are rehoming me so I can be happier.

·         I love to ride in the car and swim too.

·          My vet loves me although I have never had a health problem.

·         I am a model dog on an invisible fence but will climb a regular fence and run until I drop.



Bryzzo - 5525

Bryzzo is a gorgeous Brittany Spaniel that is about 3 years old. Bryzzo was dealt a hard hand up until now but you would never know it. He came to us with a limp that we discovered was a broken leg as the result of being hit by a car. The limp does not stop him from playing. He also tested positive for heartworm. Bryzzo has a super goofy personality that will keep you entertained. He loves to play with tennis balls and will entertain himself if you do not have time to play with him (he would however prefer that you join in the fun). Bryzzo is playful but not hyper, he is content to curl up on the couch next to you. Placing Paws has had him treated for heartworm and consulted with an orthopedic surgeon that determined that the leg can not be repaired but it is stable. Despite a rough start, Bryzzo has the sweetest personality that you will meet. He is ready to start a new life. 
The adoption fee includes all age appropriate vaccinations including rabies, HW test if age appropriate, de-worming, microchip, fecal, spay or neuter, Heartworm and flea and tick preventative. ADOPTION PROCESS: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY The first step in the adoption process is to fill out an application online at Once we review the applications, those applicants that are thought to be a good match will be contacted as quickly as possible. We ask that you please be patient with us as we are all volunteers. Then a telephone interview will take place, references checked and a home visit will be conducted. We will then arrange for you to meet the dog. We require that all family members, including current dogs meet the dog prior to adoption. We put all of the known information in the animals description. If the animal is listed on the website, we are still accepting applications for that animal. We only remove the animal when the final adoption paperwork is signed. The best way to contact us is by email at It is very difficult for the limited numbers of volunteers to return all calls. Thank you.

'Almost Home... Until They Are All Home For Good'Spaniel mixCJ is a handsome 3 year old Brittany Spaniel/Lab mix that came to us as a stray. He was orginally from the shelter when he was just a little puppy. He is current on vaccinations except for rabies, microchipped, and has tested negative for heartworm. He has a lot of energy, so a home with a fenced in yard would be best for him. CJ could also use some obedience training.He must go to a home with no other pets because he likes to be the king of the house! CJ is currently in a foster home so if you would like to meet CJ please call and set up an appointment!Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment. December 19, 2015, 2:57 am

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.
