Barney

(California)

Dog Story:
Barney will resource guard anything he can and will growl when approached.  We are still working on that correction.  He does play well with medium to large brittanys.  Unfortunately any dog, cat or animal smaller than 20 lbs. is viewed as prey and he will go for them very quickly.  Being from Spain, he will need to be tested annually for leishmania for the next 7 years.  If the leishmania becomes active, it is easily treated with antibiotics and this will not spread to other animals.   Leishmania is spread by sand fleas in Spain and is not here in the states, but it can lay dormant in animals for 7 years.  


I don't have a pool and I don't know how he will react around one.  He pulls a little on the leash but enjoys all time he can be with people.  He is quite protective and barks when people surprise him by coming up to the door or using the door bell.

Being from Spain, he has a $450.00 adoption fee.

Barney is a sweet snuggle bug of a Roan boy from Spain. He wants nothing more than to be with his people He loves to play fetch with a few tennis balls or toys. He enjoys alone time with his people and his things. He will do best with an experienced owner that will understand his resource idiosyncrasies and be able continue his training.

He is crate trained and well behaved in the house. He will be your couch potato and best friend.

 

If Barney would be a good addition to your family please fill out the online adoption application  and mention Barney. 

Dog History:
Barney is part of ABR’s International rescue effort.

Lexmark “Lexi”

(California)

Adopted !!


Dog Story:

Lexi is one handsome, 2 year old, long-legged Brittany mix. He’s tall and slender and the vet said that he’s in perfect health. He has an easy disposition, is extremely affectionate and loves being with people, following his foster mom from room to room. He has yet to meet a person he doesn’t love and he thrives from the attention he gets from people who stop to admire his good looks.

Lexi gets along well with his 6 year old foster Brittany sister and though there are no cats in the house, he doesn’t react to cats on his walks. Lexi is house broken, crate trained and walks very well in a harness. He is an accomplished foodie and people food must be kept far from his reach. He’s still a playful 2 year old and his new owner will have to continue his training. He hasn’t demonstrated any hunting interest at this time.

If you’re looking for a dog to fill your house with love and think Lexi would be a good addition to your family, please fill out the online adoption application and mention Lexi. Please feel free to contact his foster mom with any questions.

Dog History:

Lexi is part of ABR’s International rescue effort. Lexi spent the majority of his life as a stray, living in close proximity to a restaurant, and no doubt was very adept at living on the streets. People have not been very kind to Lexi, as he has had hot coffee thrown on him, and has been chased away. But his great nature is so forgiving, that he just took that in stride.

Duke is a very good boy! He is quite mellow for a Brittany puppy. He has adapted quite well to house dog living and enjoys finding the warm sun spots while lounging around the house. He is house broken, doing well on his general obedience, working on recall and recognizing his name. Duke is smart and quick to learn, very curious and extremely sweet. He picks up house rules very fast. He is not destructive and has not been digging. He has not attempted to jump a 4ft fence even when there are birds outside or neighbor dogs pass by. 

During walks he definitely likes to explore with his nose, hunting and tracking to see what he can find. His nose can take him on quite an excursion so at this time since we are working on his recall a long training lead is suggested. Cats are untested but he does not  have much interest in the prairie dogs on our training route, so he's not displaying an aggressive prey drive. I would describe him as good hunt drive, low prey drive. 

He seems to be very friendly with all people and other dogs. No incessant barking, he's a quiet boy but does alert to visitors (very non-aggressively) outside the fence. Mostly he just wants to meet them and their pups. No food aggression.

With consistency in training he will make an excellent dog for someone who loves Brittanys!

Duke was a owner surrender.

Dog Story

Little Belle is a tremendous example of all the wonderful traits of the Brittany breed. She has not had an easy life, and yet remains brave, playful, curious and so very sweet. Belle came into ABR care after she was surrender at a shelter by her previous owners who could not care for her needs. Sweet Belle is blind... but she’s very good at fooling people who don’t know it! She has glaucoma that is now managed with eyedrops twice a day. Her recovery has been wonderful with ABR’s help. Initially, all Belle would do was sleep. She was in intense amounts of pain because of the pressure build up from the glaucoma. Any exercise would only make the throbbing worse. We presume this is why her left eye had to be surgically removed earlier on. Unfortunately, even though the eyedrops work wonders, her optic nerve was irreversibly damaged because she was not diagnosed and treated in time with her previous owners. After using the eyedrops, her once cloudy, swollen, and blue eye turned into the most beautiful Brittany golden brown. It was clear that she felt so much better and decided to take baby steps to explore the house and yard at her foster home. After about two weeks she had her foster home “mapped” in her memory and now gets around without assistance.

She knows the command “step” and does need help in new places. Belle would do best in a consistent and comfortable environment that is clean and predictable. For example, it’s best to keep her pathways clear to avoid bumping into things. Belle absolutely loves going for leashed walks or runs. She gets a little lost on unleashed walks and really does better with guidance in unfamiliar places or on trails. She does well when tethered via harness to her foster brother on walks as it keeps her on a straight line. Belle likes being around dogs that she knows and trusts. New friends take a little adjusting until she understands that they are trustworthy and won’t take advantage of her disability. Belle would be fine as an only dog as well. Belle does insist on being with her people at night and sleeps very peacefully either right next to her foster parents or on the foot of the bed. She is the ultimate cuddle-Bug.

If you have any questions about Belle’s needs or think you’d be a great forever home for this amazing girl please fill the online adoption application contact her foster Mom Bobbi. 

 Dog History:

Belle was surrendered by her previous owner to the South Utah Valley Animal Shelter.

Dog Story:

 This is Maggie, a sweet personable young pup. She is well behaved, if still needing some direction on her manners. She is very sociable and loves to place chase with the other dogs. She seems to be used to being in the house and , so far, seems to be house trained. We are currently getting her used to being in a crate at night, she needs help to understand that she should go into it, but is getting the hang of it.

Maggie is a typical high energy Britt (but not hyper), she also loves to be a lapdog and cuddle with you.

If you think you might be the perfect home for Maggie, just fill out the online adoption application on the website and contact her foster dad if you want any more info.

Dog History:

Maggie was rescued from a local shelter, where she was picked up as a stray.

Dottie is a beautiful 3 year old roan girl. More than anything, she loves cuddles and pets from her human friends. Dottie is working on her socialization skills, as she was not exposed to other dogs for most of her life. She has made incredible progress with her foster family, learning that playing with her foster siblings can be so much fun, and that she doesn't need to be aggressive with other dogs to protect her humans.  She is incredibly patient and gentle while playing with the resident 15-week Brittany pup. 

Dottie unfortunately has anxiety around small children, and should not be in a permanent home with young children. Though she is incredibly sweet and a very quick learner, her previous owner surrendered her because of a new life change where Dottie would be exposed to young children and knew it wouldn't be a good fit. Dottie's new owners must understand her temperament and be comfortable using techniques to de-escalate and avoid potential confrontations with other dogs and children. 

Dottie is a total sweetheart and loves to be a typical silly Brittany, fetching balls and playing with toys. She is motivated well with treats and will do just about anything for a chew toy! She is crate trained and will automatically go to her crate when she knows it's time for her foster parents to go to work. She needs help learning polite leash etiquette as she is a puller and should use a harness while on a leash. Again, she is very smart and with the right education and patience I think she has the potential to master leash etiquette. 


If you think you'd be a good fit for this beautiful girl, please fill out an application and mention Dottie. She has been a joy to host in our home! Please call Bobbi for more info: (801) 520-2254

Ryder is a very sweet, handsome boy who loves to play!  His mother was a Brittany and his father was a German ShortHair Pointer. He looks like your typical Britt, just bigger. Who doesn’t like more to love? He also has gorgeous tail feathers. Ryder loves playing fetch and getting tummy rubs. He is very affection, and good with other dogs. 

Ryder needs to live in a home with a secure, tall fence, as he is an escape artist. As long as he can't jump onto anything and over the fence.

If you think you’d be a good fit for this loveable boy, please fill out the application and mention Ryder. For more information please call his foster Dad, Michael, at (801) 550-4138

Wilson is a happy senior boy with plenty of energy. When he gets tired he just goes in his crate for a rest. 

Wilson gets along with his foster brother and is house broken. Wilson had most of his remaining teeth removed after being rescued as they were all in bad shape. It doesn't stop him from enjoying a great meal of soft food!

If you would like to have a lovely easy going Brittany boy join your family, please email his foster Dad at barlowfamily220@msn.com or call 801-550-4138

Wilson was a stray and was rescued by ABR.

Dog Story:

Liza is just the sweetest little girl. She is eager to please and very food motivated. But don't worry! That weight will come off quickly now that she is no longer in a shelter.

Liza was a house pet in Serbia, when she became pregnant she was kicked out onto the streets. She ended up in a shelter where they took her babies and gave her to a hunter. The Serbian rescuer got Liza back and into a shelter/boarding facility where she was for over a year until volunteers could make the trip to bring her to the USA.

Liza loves snuggles, other dogs and people (and she tolerates the resident goats and pony at our home). She absolutely LOVES water and at least a kiddie pool is mandatory.

If you're intersted in this lovely girl please fill out an adoption application.

Dog History:

Liza is part of ABR's International rescue effort.

Red is a very birdy and energetic young dog that plays continuously with others on our fenced acreage. Red is content in the pack, is well socialized and not aggressive. He eats well with others although he bolts down his food and looks for seconds. We've been training with him at off leash call-back training, where he has good recall at smaller distances and he will call back, hold and heel when asked. 

Like a typical Brittany, Red is eager to please. Somewhere in the past Red may not have had the best treatment; we've noticed he will cringe when called, even crawling up submissively, squinting and dodging your hands. :( We're working very hard on building his confidence, and using a lot of praise to clarify good behavior - he's thriving under this training method.  

One concern we have that will take some work is his human guarding behavior; we've been his people only a short time yet when he's on a leash he appears to be possessive of us by exhibiting stiff leg behavior when strangers approach. In the yard and free ranging he does not display this same behavior. We're trying different techniques to work through this and are confident Red can get past it. 

More than anything Red loves to run and play, therefore he would do best in a home where he will have lots of room to run. Red would also be most successful in an experienced Brittany home. 

Red is crate trained and travels well in a car. Red is great with kids over 10, dogs, cats and is respectful of fences.  Red is 16 months old, housebroke, was just neutered at the beginning of September and is up-to-date on all immunizations. 

If you think you're up to the challenge and can keep up with Red then GAME ON!! We know you won't be disappointed with spectacularly handsome young dog.
