Dog Story: Colt is a beautiful youngster and a little jewel. He was welcomed with open paws by his foster canine siblings and is very attached to his people. Colt loves joining the pack for fun exploring, chasing squirrels and just sitting in the shade on a warm day. He has excellent house manners with no potty mishaps so far, doesn’t get up on furniture and walks nicely on leash too. Of course digging for critters in the backyard is a fun activity no Brittany can resist! At night Colt likes to curl up on the big dog bed for snoozing. Colt is a quiet and shy boy but responds happily to a kind voice, positive reinforcement and caring atta-boy pets. He’s definitely a velcro dog right now and startles easily, not wanting to let you out of his sight and preferring to be close by laying at your feet. He is more wary of men but slowly learning to trust the male gender with gentle love from his foster dad and brothers. Colt’s new family will need to be patient as he learns to warm up and trust people. Like all young Brittanys, Colt also has a ton of energy! He will need regular active exercise going for walks and activities with his new people. Colt has a tendency to get carsick which we’ve been working on, taking short 1-2 mile trips in the car with the air conditioning on so he can get more accustomed to car rides. Colt will do best with at least one other canine companion as a playmate to hang out with and burn off some of that puppy energy, and a family member who is home much of the time. A beginner obedience class will continue helping build his confidence and bonding with his new people. Colt weighs 40 pounds and is very healthy, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped. He fit right into our menagerie and is a phenomenal dog who will be a wonderful companion with a patient and loving family. If you’re interested in adopting him, please submit the online adoption application and mention Colt-3809, then contact his foster family. Colt’s owners were losing their house and contacted ABR to help find him a new home.
