Dog Story: Darwin is everything you want in a 15 month-old Brittany pup -minus afamily with the experience and energy to care for him.He is a very loving and playful as well associalized with adults, kids overfive years old, and other dogs. He is excited around cats but not aggressive. In his previous home, Darwin had lived mostly outdoors and in a garage, so everything in a house as well as most things on walks seem new to him. He is,however, adapting easily. Herarely gets overwhelmed and is transforming rapidly into a great family dog! Darwin is picking up potty training quickly and adjusting well to the household routine by following the example of his four foster siblings. He loves his new lifestyle.being with the family and getting lots of attention, lots of playing with the other dogs, and then resting on dog beds as well asin his crate. He would love the couch, too, if he was allowed on it! Darwin is quickly learning basic obedience skills and how much fun training can be as he is very eager to please and loves treats. He is already very good on a leash and in the car. Darwin has also discovered a passion for stuffed animals!A reported problem fromhis owners was chewing but with lots of appropriate dog toys available, it has not been an issue in his foster home. As with any young Brittany, he is still very much a puppy with a lot of energy to spare. Darwin needs an active family that is committed to continuing his training and ensuring he gets plenty of attention and exercise.

History: Darwin was surrendered to ABR by a family who adopted him from a shelter when he was 10 months old. There was no background information on him at the shelter. His owners had little experience with dogs and were not prepared for an untrained, highly energetic bird dog. They decided Darwin would be better off in a family with more time and experience to care for a young Brittany.
