Dog Story: On July 24, ABR participated in Operation Magnolia Brittany with the seizure of 103 Brittanys from a breeder in Louisiana. Despite the less than optimal situation they came from, in most every way they are your typical Brittanys – eager for love, resilient and spirited, and so very happy and sweet. ABR took 20 Magnolia Brittanys into California foster homes and our dogs have already had a wonderful start in ABR’s care. However, nearly all the Magnolia Brittanys are Heartworm Positive and require Heartworm treatment prior to adoption. Heartworm treatment requires several months in foster care and the cost of Heartworm treatment for each dog is approximately $1,000. The costs of veterinary care, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchipping and Heartworm treatment in addition to the expense of supplies and transport for such a large group of dogs has been a great logistical and financial commitment. Our Brittanys are in desperate need of Brittany Buddy help and donations to help with the costs of their vet care, medical expenses and transport. Please find it in your heart to contribute to Operation Magnolia Brittany and become a Brittany Buddy– all donations will go directly towards helping these wonderful, deserving Brittanys on their journey to a new life! While undergoing Heartworm treatment the Magnolia Brittanys will remain in the loving care of their ABR foster homes. All the dogs have started Heartworm treatment and require several weeks of crate rest, leash walks and quiet recovery as their physical exertion must be limited during treatment. All the dogs have been spayed/neutered, microchipped and fully vetted. As soon as their Heartworm treatment is complete they will be back to normal and ready to move to their forever homes! In the meantime we are accepting adoption applications for the Magnolia Brittanys and invite potential adopters to contact their foster homes for more information. If you are interested in adopting one of these wonderful Louisiana Brittanys, please submit the online ABR adoption application and then contact their foster families. is a Magnolia Brittany from Louisiana. He is a stunningly beautiful 4 year old orange and white male. Truman is Heartworm positive and currently undergoing Heartworm treatment. Truman is like an overgrown puppy ready to go out and explore the world! He loves people and is always happy to get his ears scratched. Truman is very gentle when taking treats and greeting people. He loves to chew and will enjoy a sample of plants, bedding or toys, so appropriate dog chew toys and bones are the perfect outlet. New things were scary at first (water hoses and the vet’s office especially) but now Truman is more confident to walk up, smell and investigate with that great Brittany nose. He gets along well with Louisiana foster brother Watson and all the resident Brittany siblings. Truman has truly blossomed and is eager for lots of love, and of course really wants to run and play. Due to his heartworm treatment it will be awhile until he can safely exercise as exuberantly as he likes, but it will be a pleasure to watch him run like the wind once he completes treatment! If you are interested in adopting please submit the online adoption application and mention Truman-4419, then contact his foster family.
