Luigi

(California)

 Dog Story:

Hi, My name is Luigi, and I am soooo happy!  I love grass and to play, and friends to play with, and to run, and to play.  Oh how I love to play!  My family loved me, but they didn’t really know about Brittany’s.  I lived outside on a chain for my life with my family.  Then my man passed away, and my woman couldn’t care for me any longer.  The wonderful people with ABR came and picked me up, gave me a bath and spruced me up.  I then got to ride in the car for a long time with a very kind lady, and now I live with my new people.  I get to sleep in the house!  And I get to run in their yard!  And I try to play with their brittanys! But I get to play without being on a chain.  It is so wonderful.  I am soooo happy!

Foster Mom:  It is hard to believe that Luigi is 7.  He has the energy of a 2 year old.  Luigi was surrendered when his owner had to have surgery and could not care for him any longer.  He has never been trained, and is a big puppy.  He is eager to please and is very smart.  He understands doing his business outdoors – but needs continued reinforcement.  He understands sitting for his dinner, and sitting for a cookie.  He is a Velcro pup, as he stays very close at all times.  He is working on sit and stay.  Walks pretty well on a leash.  He sleeps in his crate, but would much rather sleep in a bed with his human. 

Luigi’s personality is so sweet and very eager to please.  He is a love bug.  He loves other dogs, and wants to play, but is so excited to be around other dogs that his energy can be overwhelming.  Luigi needs a home where his owner has the time to train and work with him.  He has the potential to be an awesome dog, but he needs the guidance and training to achieve that.

If Luigi sounds like a dog that would work in your home, please fill out the  adoption application and mention Luigi.

Dog History:

Luigi was an owner surrender to ABR.

Oscar

(California)


Dog Story:

Oscar has been a jewel ever since he came to us even though he has a reputation of being an escape artist. Oscar has learned that cats are not toys and are not to be chased. Oscar loves to walk on a lead and does a great job. He knows sit, stay down, speak and lay down. It only took a week for him to learn what the house rules are here.

Oscar would love to find a home of his own as here he has to share the humans between 3 cats and 3 other dogs. Oscar has learned where the treats are and how to open the cabinet where they are kept! Oscar will also push to see how far he can counter surf. But all in all he is a great, active Brittany that would love his own family! 

If you think Oscar would be a match for you please fill out the online adoption application , mention Oscar and contact his foster father.

Dog History:

Oscar came to ABR from the San Diego Department of Animal Services. He had been in and out of the doggy jail a few times over the last few years.

Penny Lane

(Oregon)

Dog Story:

Hi my name is Penny Lane, I never thought I would be looking for a new home but here I am. I lived with my family for 8 years, we were all very sad to part ways but my little brother was very sick. The only way for him to get better was for me to pack my bones - so I have ABR to thank for helping me find a new home. 

I'm 10 years young and weight 35 lbs. I have the spirit of a puppy but the wisdom of  a senior. I'm past all the silly puppy stuff, I don't jump up or get on the sofa (well sometimes) and I love my crate, my blanket and stuffed fox. I know how to sit, stay, lay down, shake, play soccer, I like to play in water and am a master treat catcher. I do my "business" outside and will let myself out the doggy door. My family sent me with a list of my 15 favorite things, scratches under the collar and playing tug with my blanket are just two on the list. I walk smartly on a leash with a Gentle Leader otherwise I'm a typical Brittany and like to take you for a drag down the street. I like people of all ages, especially men; I think cats are boring once I meet them. I've been an only dog for a long time so I'm a little possessive of my toys, blanket and crate. I get along with most dogs but it would be best if we met first.

I have a mild heart condition that I take medication for, that just means that I'm not going to run a marathon but thats ok, I'm an expert snuggler. I also take medication for what mom calls incontinence cause I potty a little in my sleep - but with my medication I'm good as new. I'm otherwise a healthy, happy girl that would love to have a place at your feet.

Foster Mom here: Penny is a sweet girl that has been an only dog for a long time. She's a little possessive of "her" things, we're trying to work through it. We can tell Penny wants to play with the other dogs but is unsure, I think in time she will figure out no one is a threat. 

Penny had a recent vet exam and microchip, and is up-to-date on her vaccines. Penny takes 3 inexpensive presciptions daily:  Prion, Furosemide and Enalapril. 

Pennys family loved her very much and were heartbroken to have to give her up; through it all Penny has managed to keep a smile on her face and a wiggly tail. 

If you would like Penny to join your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Penny.

Dog History:

Penny was surrendered to ABR by her family.

Mika

(Oregon)

** The adoption fee for international rescues is $450**

Dog Story:

Yassas! I’m Mika, a cute little Frenchie from Greece now living in the Pacific Northwest and looking for a forever home to bury my bones. I was found on the streets on the island of Levnos as a little pup wandering all by myself when some nice people took me in till someone else could care for me. Then ABR International took me for a looooong plane ride and now I’m here in the big woods. I'm looking for a special place that will let me run, jump and play outside.

I'm a really nice girl that never bites and hardly ever barks. I walk smartly on a leash and have nice manners however I like to counter surf sometimes (don't tell mom). I know how to use the doggy door but I’m not thrilled about going outside to “do my business” when it’s raining so mom says we’re still working on it. I know how to sit, lay down and love my crate. I like to play with other dogs but also know when to settle down to be quiet. Last thing, I love bones! If you have bones then I know we will get along great.

Foster mom: Mika is an old soul that is very quiet for a dog her age. She loves to play rough and tumble with the big dogs but settles right down when it’s time to come in the house. Mika is a smart, independent little girl that learns fast but doesn’t always want to go outside in the rain therefore we’ve had a few accidents. She's affectionate, loves to cuddle and be held like a baby. When first introduced to other dogs Mika can be defensive but settles right in once she knows she’s safe. Mika is fully crate trained, does great on a leash, is learning basic commands and working on her recall. She's not destructive but does need stimulation to keep her busy. Mika is a very special girl, we adore her. Due to Mika's age, a refundable spay deposit equal to the adoption.

if you would like Mika to join your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Mika.

Dog History:

Mika was one of several dogs rescued in Greece.

Brittanys usually live 12-15 years, so if you are contemplating adoption, please be prepared to make that kind of commitment to the dog. Brittanys love their people and require personal attention every day.

Dogs placed by American Brittany Rescue, Inc. have been rescued from a shelter, found as a stray, or given up by an owner who could no longer keep or care for them. All dogs in foster homes have been (or will be) spayed or neutered, checked for heartworm, and are usually on preventative medication for heartworm. A dog's foster family can give you valuable information about its personality and temperament.

There are many more Brittany's available but not yet listed on the web site. These pages are always changing as homes are found and new dogs are placed into rescue. Please contact the State Coordinator for more information.

If you know of a Brittany who needs a home, please contact your nearest State Coordinator for assistance.
