Hoss is a sweet boy who is looking for a home where he can be included in lots of activities and be close to his humans. He has settled in with the resident Britt and is working on the common commands. Hoss really is a work in progress. He will require a patient, understanding family who will work with him. He can be reactive and we will not place him in a family with small children. Hoss takes time to warm up to new situations. When he first entered rescue, he was a considerable flight risk. He would bolt out of fear. That has dramatically improved, but anyone needs to be prepared to manage his safety. He will need a very secure physical fence.  Hoss does have a quiet side and enjoys playing with his toys and curling up on your feet.

This boy needs be included in an active family’s day to day life. He HATES the crate. Left alone for long hours will result in a wild man with excess energy to burn. No long distance or sight unseen adoptions for Hoss. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit. 

Hoss is a sweet dog and a wonderful Brit who is anxious for your forever love and companionship. If you're willing to take time to acclimate him, Hoss may be the dog for you. Interested in learning more about this wonderful guy?  Complete the adoption application.

History:

Hoss is an owner surrender. This boy had a rocky start in life, he was one of several Britts who were living in sad conditions with little or no socialization. He was adopted from those conditions to a family that was not prepared for his needs. ABR was contacted and we took Hoss into our foster care.

Our boy is neutered, is current on all vaccinations, Heart Worm negative and on Heart Worm Preventative. He is also microchipped. Now all he needs is wonderful forever home to call his own.

Ruby is a sweet, little gal.  She loves to run, chase and wrestle with her foster brother but has no problem settling down when we come inside. She gets a 4-mile walk in the morning and a couple twenty-minute play sessions in a fenced area. She is confident around dogs (she's the alpha to my dog), but she is nervous and skittish around people.  She startles easily and her first reaction is to run. Despite this, she really craves human attention.  Over the past few weeks, she is gaining trust but is still a bit jumpy. Introductions with newcomers need to be made slowly giving Ruby time to adjust.  She kind of knows ‘sit’, though she will lie down as often as she sits. She will go into the dog crate voluntarily to sleep, but if I approach the door, she scrambles to get out of it so as not to get trapped in there. She walks fairly well but with some pulling. She is house trained and uses a dog door to access an enclosed kennel. For a 1-year-old she is fairly well behaved in the house. Every now and then she will start to chew something she shouldn’t but if asked to ‘drop it’ or given something else to chew, she will stop.

This girl will do best in a home with a calm, steady atmosphere. She displays good behavior with a stable routine. Her forever family needs to be patient adults. She would benefit from a family that has experience with fear aggression or one who is willing to work with a certified behaviorist.

She has obviously had a rough start in life but this adorable and playful girl has a lot of love to give.   With time and correct handling, she can overcome her fear of people and be a happy, healthy dog.

No sight unseen or long distance adoptions for this sweetie.  We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit. If Ms. Ruby sounds like the gal for you please complete the adoption application.

History:

Ruby was one of several Britts confiscated by the local shelter. She was adopted from the shelter to a family with younger kids and returned after they realized this was not a good match. ABR was contacted and we took her into our foster care. Ruby is spayed and micro chipped. She is current on all vaccinations, is Heart Worm negative and is on Heart Worm Preventative.

Pen

(Pennsylvania)

This girl is full of Brittany energy in a cute little body. You would never guess that Pen is 11 years old from watching her in the backyard or on a leash. She loves walks in the neighborhood and trips to local parks. Her original owner said that she likes long runs and that is absolutely her favorite thing to do. She will trot around a fenced yard non-stop for hours, outlasting much younger dogs in the foster family. 
Pen enjoys having a crate and will go into the crate all by herself. She is very good with furniture; she's never jumped on furniture but if invited, she would, no doubt, happily be on the furniture all the time. She does find open windows to be very enticing and will put her front paws on window sills to get a better view and more outdoor smells.  
Outside, she's interested in squirrels and birds but has not tried to escape the yard to chase them. She has also encountered other dogs, horses, and deer and has had no reaction to them. And she is not scared of fireworks. On walks, she wears a harness so she now joyfully anticipates a walk when the harness appears.

She is quite comfortable with all types of grooming: baths, teeth cleaning, fur brushing, cleaning her ears and filing her nails.
Pen was surrendered by her breeder and owner; formerly she was a kennel dog who competed in field trials. When Pen came into rescue, she was spayed and mammary tumors were removed. Biopsy revealed they were Grade 1 carcinomas, excised with good boundaries so the vet anticipates no recurrence. A significant heart murmur was present when Pen was first examined. She is scheduled to see a cardiologist on September 23rd to determine if she should be on medication. Pen is heartworm negative, on preventative, up to date on vaccinations and chipped.

If you’d like to give a sweet, spunky lass a retirement home and received plenty of love in return, please complete the adoption application and mention Pen.
