Cali

(Massachusetts)

Hi everyone - Meet Cali!

Cali is a petite young pup (estimate 1 year old, 19 lbs) up to date on her heartworm and flea and tick meds. She's spayed.

Cali came to us a scared little thing from Serbia but quickly adapted and thrived with us. Don't let her size fool you! Big things come in small packages and that describes Cali's personality in a nutshell.

She's smart as a whip but we're still trying to build her confidence up. When she first came to us, she would not walk on a leash and was not house-trained. She's now doing well on the leash but still has insecurities about going to the bathroom on leash. Needless to say, we still occasionally have accidents in the house but she's coming along slowly but surely.  Every small progress is a victory with this little lady.

She responds proudly to her good girl praise and is eager to please. 

Cali is currently being fostered in a home with another Brittany (Molly is 3) as well as two small children ages newborn (3 months) and an active toddler 2.5 years.  She has adapted AMAZINGLY.  She is very good with both the other dog and the kids. 

We don't know her history but it seems like she might have a been a street dog. She can be a little guarded about her food but not aggressive. She will growl from time to time about food or possession of a toy but will share her food bowl with our other dog (begrudgingly and a little vocal) but without issue. 

We've made significant progress in training with Cali but she still has a little bit to go... Especially with the housebreaking. With a little patience and TLC going forward, she's well on her way to living her BEST life. 

She is an absolute love bug so be prepared to have your heart stolen. 

Cali would do best in a home with another dog as she enjoys the canine companionship and must have a secure physically fenced yard.

Paska

(New Jersey)

Paska is an eleven year old neutered male that is a pure joy to have around the house. Paska is part of a bonded pair with his forever pal Zeryk. He is house-trained and has never needed a crate. He is fine in the house with no supervision. He is good with other dogs and with our cat. Small children are not a good fit for this old boy because he doesn't do well with quick movements, noises, or surprises. 
At 53lbs, and a medium frame, Paska is a bit overweight, but we are working to slim him down. This should be continued when adopted as well for better health. Paska has recently had a couple of growths removed. They were found to be benign and the vet said that other than the weight issue, Paska is in very good health.
Paska likes to spend his day laying close to you on the floor. He also likes to go outside and explore often, but never liked to stay out too long without someone being with him. Paska and his life long friend, Zeryk, are very content to just take it easy in their older years. They play with stuffed animals a bit, check out the yard a bit, and rest a lot. Paska is all about leading the easy life, so please no dog sledding Iditarods, or doggie surfing for this guy, just a scratch on the head by a nice warm fireplace will be fine.
If you are interested in adopting these special boys please fill out our adoption application and note Paska and Zeryk. 
These two have been together their entire lives and must be adopted together!

History:
Paska and Zeryk were surrendered by their owner when their declining health left them unable to care for them

Zeryk

(New Jersey)

Zeryk is a big boy. If he was a human he would be a large friendly lumberjack. He is tall and weights a little over 60lbs, but he isn't fat, he is just big. With that being said, Zeryk is the sweetest most easy going Brittany you will ever meet. Zeryk is part of a bonded pair with his forever friend and companion, Paska. He is 10 years old and does run out of steam easily, but that doesn't stop him from loving on you constantly and squeaking his toys. He is neutered, housebroken, and does not need a crate if left alone in the house.
Zeryk does have some breathing issues and a trip to the vet has shown chronic bronchitis. He is on medication and his breathing has improved. Zeryk is still very playful and absolutely loves to be around people.
Where as Paska is a little skittish, Zeryk is "the tall cool one" of the two. Nothing seems to bother him, and the world is just a happy place to be. When you come home from work, Zeryk is the happiest to see you and he will stay happy the entire time you are home. He never tires of loving you. 
If you are interested in adopting these special boys please fill out our adoption application and note Paska and Zeryk. These two have been together their entire lives and must be adopted together!

Handsome, almost 8-year-old Brit boy seeking family to help explore everything about living a real dog’s life. Learning his name, living in a house with people to pet him, his very own crate with a padded bed, foster siblings to play with, and being able to go in and out of the yard just for the fun of running are brand new to him.

He is rapidly learning that he doesn’t have to be frightened about going through a doorway, gate, or in and out of his crate.
Initially highly fearful of almost everything, he is learning to tolerate a vacuum cleaner and the noise of the silverware drawer if it’s opened too quickly. The trains that run alongside our home do not faze him. He has mastered the dog door to go in and out of the yard (another noisy thing). There have been a few lapses in housetraining, but J.J. is moving ahead steadily in this. He was a perfect gentleman at the vet’s office and was pleased with the attention of new people and didn’t object to the poke of his flu booster. Walking on a leash and basic commands are part of J.J. as a “work in progress”.

J.J.’s ideal home would be with a family that is home most of the time, perhaps with one other adult dog for guidance and play.
 He enjoys playing with his foster sister, and is just beginning to join the 5 others when they dash outside to check on the squirrels or the trains. He prefers seeking human companionship when the others are occupied elsewhere. He likes to take toys and bones into his crate, but is not possessive of them. He “kennels” eagerly at mealtimes, as this works out the best for feeding 6 dogs. The time he spends “socializing” with dogs and people increases daily and it’s great to see how his confidence is growing.

J.J. is eager to be someone’s forever friend. If one can judge a dog’s heart, his is most likely filled up with gratitude for the change in his circumstances.
  Please no sight unseen adoptions for this guy.  We feel it is important for all family members (humans and canine) meet to make sure we have a good fit.  If you are interested in J.J. please complete the adoption application.

History:
J.J. is of 10 dogs surrendered to ABR in January 2020 after their owner unexpectedly died. All were living in outdoor runs with barrels as shelter. The family notified ABR and we took all into rescue. This sweet boy is current on all vaccinations, neutered, heart worm negative and on prevention medications. He also has been microchipped.

Jump back!!! This business of living in a house and having a dog door and fenced yard and doggie buddies and having someone who likes to pet me for ages and ages is SO COOL!

Hi, I’m Buster and I’m almost 8 years old.
 I came to Ohio with my littermate J.J. from Illinois. It was a long trip and I was a very good traveler. I lived outside my whole life and now I live inside and I have my own crate with a soft bed and blankets.  I have four new foster siblings and we run in and out of the dog door to check on squirrels and watch the trains go by. When I know it’s time to eat or get a doggie treat, I go into my crate. I love to be halfway onto the sofa or recliner so someone can pet me and say my name over and over. My tail wags a lot when I hear my name.

I’m really new at this “command” thing, but I’m learning.
 I have been caught taking towels off the counter and pulling them apart. Oops! I am happy to rest in my crate when my foster parents go away for a couple of hours. 

My foster mom says I have a curious and happy soul.
 I was thinking about living in a castle, but what I really want is a home where I don’t have to share the attention with quite so many other dogs, with someone eager to teach me all the things that I haven’t been taught so far. I do catch on really fast. It would be cool if I didn’t have to be alone for long periods of time. I like meeting new people, but haven’t had a lot of practice with meeting other dogs yet. I don’t know what a cat is.

Please no sight unseen adoptions for this guy.  We feel it is important for all family members (humans and canine) meet to make sure we have a good fit.  If you are interested in Buster please complete the
