Meg: cute, petite, snuggly, energizer bunny, high prey drive, sweet are some of the words that describe this wonderful Britt bit. She has come a long way since ABR picked her up as a stray from the shelter. At first, she did not respond to any commands and seemed to have had no training of any sort. We have now had her for a couple of weeks, and she is coming out of her shell. She is great on a leash, crates well and is quiet once she gets there. Meg does not know a stranger. She will let anyone walk up to her and pet her. She loves petting and snuggling, and will wag her little Brittany tail for you. It seems she is more of a man’s dog; when foster dad leaves the room or house, she looks for him and is so happy to see him. She finally began to play with toys, but only for a short while. When she is outside, she is very distracted and interested in everything. Meg’s challenge is she is leery of other dogs, at least our Britt Girls. She believes that the best offensive was a good defense. She is beginning to trust and relax so a multiple dog family is not recommended. Meg will need a patient owner, preferably with no other pets, and a fenced in yard to contain that high energy. She will need training to learn what you expect of her/she needs to know what her job in life is/ learn her basic commands, and to get socialized with other animals. Please no sight unseen or long distance adoptions for this girl. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit. If you fit the description above, please complete the adoption application and contact her foster. This girl will give back so much love; she has already won our hearts and we know she will be a real treasure for the right owner. Meg was a stray to a shelter. ABR was alerted to her plight and took her into our foster care program. She is up to date on her vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped. 8/4/15: returned to rescue 8/1/15 Meg was adopted from MI to an IL family 6/ 27/ 15. She was returned to rescue as Meg found the the adult son in the household was her nemesis. Meg would bark on stop. This progressed in barking at other family members and charging them. Owners were concerned about Meg and their 1 year old grandchild and another on the way.
