Gunnar

(California)

Dog Story:

Meet Gunnar, or as he prefers, Gunnie. He just turned 6 and is a very handsome black and white French Brittany, about 40 lbs of sweetness and energy. He has had training and is housebroken, and crate trained. He will sleep fine in a crate but prefers to cuddle on the sofa, your lap, or on the bed with you.

Gunnar comes with his AKC papers. 

Gunnie has already had two homes so we are looking for a home that will truly be his forever home. He needs someone who is home with him all day as he does not like to be left alone for long periods of time (short periods are ok). He needs someone who can be firm and continue to work with him on leash manners and his barking. He bonds to his humans quickly and is very eager to please. He is protective of his toys (he loves chew toys and will catch things thrown to him) and can be food protective but is very receptive to being corrected.

Gunnie gets along fine with his brit foster brother, they love chasing the squirrels together), he has lived with children, cats and small dogs and should be fine with slow introductions and consistent training, but will probably not do well with large or strongly alpha dogs. He would be best with older children as he is a typical young energetic and bouncy brit boy.

This sweet boy deserves a good, loving home. If you are interested in giving him his forever home, please fill out the online adoption application . If you would like more information, please contact his foster family.

Dog History:

Gunnar was an owner surrender. His family said he was not a good fit for them

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.

Belle

(Washington)


Dog Story:

Meet the lovely Belle! Belle came to ABR from Serbia. She has been in the US since December and is now ready for her forever home. Belle is a typical young wiggly butt Britt. She is full of love & really enjoys her snuggle time. She also enjoys her meal time, snack time, goat time, dog time & play time. Belle is really just a great all around little girl. 

Belle had breast cancer prior to coming to the US. She has had both mammary chains removed and the vets say there is no reason to believe that the cancer may recur. She sometimes has bad dreams about her life as a street dog. They are getting fewer but the sounds she makes can be frightening. It does wake us up & we are easily able to comfort her.

If you think Belle would be a great addition to your family, fill out the online adoption application and contact the foster family (preferably via email) to learn more about the lovely little Belle.

Dog History:

Belle was one of the international dogs that ABR has rescued.

   

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.
