This is George, a very handsome two year old Brittany mix! He arrived at his foster home incredibly skittish and fearful of people, afraid to explore the home and terrified of stairs. In just a few weeks, he has made incredible progress but will still needs lots of time and patience in his forever home for him to grow comfortable and to develop more confidence. Despite his fear, George has always been incredibly sweet and loves to give kisses. He has recently discovered that cuddling and belly scratches are actually pretty nice! George is fully housebroken but does not seem to know any commands. He is learning his name and to come when called. He’s not super playful just yet (squeaky toys scare him) but he does like chewing on bones and rope toys, and has been caught stealing smelly shoes to chew on the laces. He is quite the couch potato, but does do well on the leash, although some noises and people in the neighborhood will spook him. He usually does well with other dogs, but lacks confidence and is sometimes fearful. He might do well with another dog in the household to show him the way, but would also do just fine as an only dog. George would do best in a quiet home and environment, with a family who will respect his boundaries and quirks and give him lots of time and love! If this sweetheart sounds like a match for you, please fill out the adoption application! George was one of 9 dogs picked up by Kern County Animal Control due to inhumane treatment. Their story is so sad and disgusting that we won’t publish it here. Suffice it to say they were not treated as any dog loving human would or should treat any animal. These pups are all mixes, but ABR didn’t have the heart to turn these pups down. They have some Brittany blood, but are definitely mixed with other sweet dispositioned breeds. As fearful, or shut down, or mistreated as these pups were, they are gentle souls with really sweet dispositions.
