This sweet Senior came into rescue this last week. Teva loves her humans and older kids, but not so much with other dogs. It's a love hate relationship with them....so she would do best being spoiled just by her owners!

Teva is housebroken, crate trained and is just a joy to have around. Teva has many tricks up her sleeve, like....shake, high five, whoa, sit, down, stay and leave it! 

You will see some growths on Teva, they are non-cancerous tumors per the vet and at her age, would be harder to recover removing them vs letting them be. So we are leaving them. 

She may be 11 1/2  but this girl still has a lot of prey drive in her as she was once trained to hunt, yet hasn't actually hunted in years. I bet a few times in the field would bring her so much joy!

Her perfect home would be one where she is the only dog, older children (over 8) and a home that will play with her and give her the stimulation she use to have! If you are interested in this sweet girl, please fill out the adoption application and mention her name and ID #.

History:
Teva has been with her owner since she was very young...she and her "sister" used to get along just great but as they both got older, Teva started getting a shorter temper around her and fights started breaking out. We did have her Thyroid tested to be sure it wasn't that causing her temper to flare and it came back fine. She just is at that age where she prefers being with her humans and not so much around other dogs.

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.

Adoption Pending 14 November 2019!!


Max is a fabulous Britt who does not have a clue that he is older and is supposed to have slowed down. He is an affectionate guy who gets along great with our resident male. They have friendly and extended wrestling matches. It's fun to watch them steal and retrieve a few favorite toys back and forth. At the dog park he is aware of the other dogs but not very interested. Max mostly just wants to be let off the lead so he can start hunting! Whenever out he wants to "work".
Max very much likes his crate at night and often goes there during the day as well. He has gotten better about jumping on kids and allows pets, returning the attention with kisses. On walks he is very, very active and strong as an ox, but he's getting better about not pulling. Max will need a strong hand, but looks for attention and direction. He definitely is smart and trainable. Max will need a family committed to his training and including him in their daily activities.
Please no sight unseen adoptions for this boy, we feel is important for all family members (human and canine) to meet to assure we have a good match.
If Max sounds like the Britt Boy for you, please complete the adoption application and be sure to mention him.

History:
Max was an owner surrender to a shelter. He had been a bird dog his whole life. He had never been in a house. ABR stepped in and Max came in to our rescue program. He is neutered, Heart Worm negative, on preventive, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations. 


He is just waiting for a home to call his own.

Duke is a beautiful 5-year-old Brittany. He will charm you with his big brown eyes and sweet temperament. He is playful boy but loves to snuggle and cuddle too. He is disappointed he is not allowed on the sofas and beds and instead is learning to use his kennel or the dog beds. Duke responds very well to positive corrections and loves to be told what a good boy he is when he gets it right. Loud voices and harsh reprimands cause him to freeze or issue a growl of protest. 

Duke barks at dogs and strangers on our walks but warms up to people and strange dogs quickly. He and his foster brother became best buds within days, a real bromance. On walks, he tends to pull on the leash but is improving, some walks are better than others. Overall, he needs work on basic commands.

Duke had issues behaving properly around the previous owner’s 1 year old, so he will not go to a home with small children. Older children, particularly if they are involved in his training would be great. 

Duke is an easy dog to love. He will cuddle as much as you want or lay quietly at your feet if you are busy. He can stay on his own in the kennel when you are away and do a happy dance when you get home. This little boy deserves a loving, secure forever home, is it yours?

Please no sight unseen, long distance adoptions for Duke. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit. If you think this gorgeous, sweet boy is the one for you, please complete the adoption application and mention Duke.


History:

Duke is an owner surrender to rescue. These folks got him from people with a small child who treated/disciplined him roughly. In our care, Duke has been neutered, Microchipped, is now current on vaccinations, tested Heart Worm negative and on Heart Worm preventative.

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!

Kodza AKA Cody

(New York)

Adoption Pending 10 November 2019!!


Meet Kodza now known as Cody, who came to the US from Serbia, not much is known about his background. He did not respond to his name, maybe I was saying it wrong or maybe it was just given to him, either way I have been calling him Cody and he is responding to that now.
Cody is a great dog, very smart and I believe very trainable.  He is 99% housebroken which means if you let him out regularly he does his business outside. He is getting into a good routine now and has not had any accidents since I first got him. He wants to chase squirrels but amazingly I trained him not to just by telling him NO. He’s not perfect but will usually just stare them down and not go after them.
He is smart, he seems to pick up on things quickly if you are consistent with him. We let him up on most furniture but not all. He quickly understood what he could and could not go on and is pretty good about following the rules. He has room for improvement walking on a leash, like most Britts he pulls. 
Cody is very friendly, a little standoffish when meeting new people, but after 5 minutes he acts like you are his best friend. He plays well with other dogs. He is usually more submissive at first but again after 5 minutes he is playing like they were litter mates.
Cody needs a physically fenced yard. In a fenced yard he is great, he runs and comes when you call him. Cody needs to get exercised daily, 10 or 15 minutes running around in a fenced yard a few times a day and he will be a happy dog.
He eats great, whatever you give him he gobbles it up. He loves treats and takes them gently from your hand. I think he would be good with kids of any age. He doesn’t jump up on people unless you wind him up. He is good when left alone, doesn’t cry when you leave. Not much of a barker but sometimes barks reacting to something new.
He would do well in a house as an only dog, as he bonds well to people, or in a house with other canine companions. He is definitely a people dog. He wants to be in the same room as you and will follow you room to room. He will cuddle with you for as long as you pet him and then some.
Not sure about cats as he has not seen one yet.  He would probably be better without a cat in the house as he does see small animals as prey to be chased. 
Cody is heartworm negative and on preventative, he is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his shots.
If you want more information on Cody please fill out the adoption application and mention his name.

Charlie

(Pennsylvania)

Adoption Pending 16 November 2019!!


Say hello to Charlie! Charlie is a mid-sized, handsome, and well-behaved 3 year old owner-surrender who would love to be your nature loving buddy. I would recommend him to a home that is either active outdoors or has a fenced yard for him to play; he would be just fine with kids and other dogs. 

 

In the house, Charlie is very low key and is respectful of your things. Generally, he will relax wherever you are (or on the couch/bed) or he will stare out the window. In short 3-5 minute spurts, he will sporadically play by himself or ask you to play (fetching balls, gently chewing on fluffy toys and bones, playing catch with his toys, rubbing up on your leg asking for back and belly scratches). When not directly watched, he has not tried to chew or destroy or scratch at anything in the house. He is fairly gentle with everything indoors, even with other similar very fluffy toys that many other Britts quickly eviscerated. Lastly, he is house and crate trained; and aside of 5-10 minutes of lonely howling when I leave, he has been fine in his crate when left alone. Regarding house training, while he did make a few mistakes in the house or in his diaper the first two weeks, he has been mistake free since then and we believe the cause was a UTI that has since been treated.   

 

While Charlie loves to run extensively outside on his leash / at the dog park, he is calm and gentlemanly in the house and prefers to more slowly trot around. Charlie shows no aggression, even when probed for nail cutting/baths, and so would be fine with most if not all kids. Meanwhile, he has been 50/50 with cats: in one case he was curious about chasing one (at a pet store), and in another he was completely indifferent to another after being introduced to the cat (this was in a new house). 

 

Outside the house, Charlie is a joy to watch and he regularly gets people smiling at the joy and vigor he brings when chasing birds/animal or checking out if said birds are in a bush/tree. He is friendly and non-aggressive with dogs and people, and will often lose interest in both after 10-30 seconds to go check out a bush or bird. He has started to naturally stalk and point at birds, though he has not been trained for hunting. He is not trained for recall either, and should be kept on the leash.

 

Despite only weighing 40-42 pounds, he is exceptionally muscular and fit, which allows him to sprint very fast, potentially pull the person walking him, and jump fairly high. When walking him, he likely demands your attention as he can bolt after a darting squirrel or flying bird. I would recommend him for a home with a fenced yard unless you are prepared for this. I’ve walked him on a bungie leash to minimize the shock, and he has gotten better while learning the limit of its length. Charlie does come back when called on his longer leash, though I would not classify him as fully recalled trained.

 

No food restrictions. Currently on heartworm and flea/tick medication, and up to date on vaccines, all which allows him to fully enjoy all the outdoors have to offer!
