Sugar

(California)

Are you looking for a high energy, ready for anything, Brittany?  If so, Sugar is your girl.  Sugar is a beautiful orange and white Brittany, strong and agile.  She has been trained to hunt, and is a thing of beauty in the field.  Other hunters stop and watch her work.    

 

When home, Sugar settles down to cuddle at your feet (or on your lap).  She knows her commands, and will execute them most of the time.  However, Sugar is alpha, and will try to push her weight around.  With a strong leader, she will accept her place and comply.  But like any teenager, she does try to push her boundaries. One minute she can be headstrong, and defiant, but the next minute she can be sweet and the perfect angel.

 

The best placement for Sugar is with an active hunter, who has trained and worked with headstrong Brittanys in the past.  She is not for the faint at heart, but her potential is limitless. She has the potential to be a Field Trial Champion, or Hunt Test Champion.

 

Sugar was recently spayed.  She is up to date on her shots, and is Heart Worm negative.


If you are looking for a hunting companion, and I haven’t scared you away, please fill out the online application referencing Sugar.

Barney

(California)

Dog Story:

Hello my Brittany Peoples! It's me the talented, handsome, lovable (and humble) Barney. Can you believe of all the ABR International dogs that came here from Spain last spring I'm still looking for a home? I can't believe it either.

I've been keeping busy working super hard with my hoomom on my resource guarding and am doing much better. Hoomom has also been teaching me to not get too excited with the barking when the doorbell rings, but I tell ya' a dog has to protect his peeps. 

Did I tell you I've got a super duper prey drive? Which if you want to go hunting, I'M YOUR MAN! However, if you have cats, small animals or dogs smaller than 20 lbs, I'm definitely not your man. I get along great with medium to large size dogs, especially other Brittanys. I would love to play fetch if you have a ball to throw and I'm an expert level snuggle-bug and couch potato that is willing to share my popcorn on movie night.

FROM FOSTER MOM: Barney is crate trained and well-behaved in the house. Barney would be best in a home with experienced Brittany owners who understand resource guarding behavior and can continue with his training. Barney is a kind soul that wants nothing more than to be with his people - Barney knows his perfect people are out there, they just haven't found him yet. 

Barney was brought to the US from Spain as part of the ABR International Program. Dogs in the International Program require annual testing for Leishmaniasis; Leish is a parasitic disease that can lay dormant for up to 7 years and is common in the Mediterranean, South and Central America but not the US. 

If you believe Barney would be a good addition to your family please fill out the online adoption  application and mention Barney. The adoption fee for dogs in the ABR International Program is $450.00.

Hi, I'm Ben! I've been a very good companion for my owner and he or she passed away. I went to live with their daughter and her 4 and 6 year old kids. I'm a great family dog. I need extra special attention for my food allergies. I take an allergy pill everyday and need special food. I Love walks but I'm not quite able to go on bike rides. I'm a happy-go-lucky fellow. I do love to snuggle.  I've been sleeping next to my foster mom every night and I need help climbing into bed. I've been loved but a little neglected my whole life. I'm a very secure, very sweet boy.  I rescued from the doggy orphanage (local humane society).  My teeth are sparkling clean and my skin infections are getting cleared up. I can't wait to meet my new family!

Dog Story:

“Gentleman Jake “earned his title as a calm, placid guy who has risen above his history.  He came to ABR as a stray found on the highway and left in a shelter until ABR came to his rescue. From his appearance it was apparent he had been on his own for an extended period.  Looking at him now, you would never guess that he had been through such rough times. His coat is a deep orange and when engaged he looks like a show dog.

 

Jake is a handsome, calm and easy going guy who loves every person and dog he has met. His foster mom states he has charmed his way into her home and heart. At first timid, he has gained confidence with love and affection and, naturally, treats. Jake is crate trained, though he prefers to be out with people and his foster sister. He rides well in the car, walks well on a leash and is house broken. Though he enjoys regular walks, he doesn’t have the usual Brittany energy unless a squirrel or butterfly brings him to attention. He is very relaxed around children. Jake would be best in a one dog home as he craves love and snuggles with people and his toys. He is learning commands slowly and it appears this is all new to him. To his credit, since being with ABR, Jake has successfully endured the trauma of being evacuated from the California fires and Trick-or-Treaters. He has gone to work for a day at a business office where the employees call him a “Rock Star”.

 

Jake came into rescue with a cough and a scabby nose.  The vet discovered he had a significant heart murmur, so ABR had him checked by a Canine Cardiologist at U.C. Davis.  Jake has been diagnosed with mitral valve leakage.  It is something he was born with, and at almost 7 years old, he seems to manage well with it.  The Cardiologist has prescribed a heart medication for him to take.  Jake’s scabby nose has been diagnosed as discoid lupus.  He has been prescribed an antibiotic for his scabby nose, and it looks much better.  Jake’s cardiac diagnosis is promising, in that the Cardiologist believes he will continue to live a moderately active life, attaining a normal life expectancy for a Brittany.

 

If you have room in your heart and home to hold all the love Jake has to give, please fill out the on-line adoption application referencing Jake.

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.

Ryder is a very sweet, handsome boy who loves to play fetch and get tummy rubs. He is very affectionate, and good with other dogs. 

Ryder needs to live in a home with a secure, tall fence, as he has been known as an escape artist. As long as he can't jump onto anything and get over the fence he will do just fine with a standard privacy fence.

His mother was a Brittany and his father was a German Shorthair Pointer. Ryder looks like your typical Britt, just bigger, meaning there's more to love! He also has GORGEOUS tail feathers. 


If you think you’d be a good fit for this fabulous wiggle 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.

Sweet Remy has not had an easy life. This poor old boy was found in a river bed trying to survive off fish guts and anything else he could scavenge. When approached by the people who found him he wouldn't even stand up. His luck would soon turn as the nice folks who found him turned him into the shelter and was quickly scooped up by ABR. We presume he was tied up outdoors most of his life as he initially was afraid of going inside and the fur around his neck is completely worn away. We assume he eventually freed himself from his tether and wandered off, his owners not bothering to look for him. No dog could be more deserving of a nice warm bed and companion to love him through the best years of his life. 

Remy gets along great with other dogs. Because he doesn't see very well, he currently enjoys following the other foster senior, Wilson, around the yard. He seems to be mostly deaf, though occasionally responds to high pitched noises or loud clapping. Though he is still very under weight, he moves well and has a good amount of energy. With more TLC, we expect him to get better and better with time. 

Remy is neutered, current on all vaccines, microchipped, and tested negative for heartworm. This wonderful boy is ready to go to his forever home and be spoiled rotten!

If you have any questions about Remy please contact Bobbi at 801-520-2254 or email abr.ut@americanbrittanyrescue.org

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.

Keva came to ABR through our BRITT911 phone line where it was stated she was a purebred Brittany; you can see from her beautiful face she sure looks like one. However on closer inspection we found Keva is likely a Brittany-Border Collie cross (that's one smart dog!). Because we had already committed to saving this sweet girl, we found a foster for her. Now it's time to find Keva a forever home. 

Keva has a lot of love to give even though she's had a traumatic past; in her foster home she's been soaking up all the people love she can get. Keva will stay by your side, she has excellent recall, is crate and house trained. While Keva gets along with a group of dogs, she would do best in a one to two dog household - just because the other dogs get jealous of her attention seeking. 

Keva adores women and is OK with men after a few days; she is attentive and will alert to strangers and strange noise but not annoyingly so. She's easy to train because she's eager to please. Keva would make an ideal companion for a single female.

Keva did have minor fear issues when living in a foster home on acreage, she was scared to go outside alone. Now that she is in a foster home with a smaller sized yard she's more comfortable and isn't afraid any longer. 

If you would like to open your heart and home to a super sharp, loving and sweet girl that isn't 100% Brittany but is still 100% lovable and would be dedicated to you the rest of her life, please fill out an adoption application. 

Keva is almost 4 years old, good with kids, needs a 6 ft fence, spayed, UTD on medical.
