Sadie

(California)


 Dog Story:

Sadie was found tied to the shelter door one morning, abandoned by her family.  The shelter reached out to ABR and asked if we would be willing to take her.  We said YES!!

Her first night n Foster Care, Sadie was so tickled to be "out of jail" that she bounced around the floor, played with Foster Mom's small dog and loved on the Cats.  She gets along with everyone, and is so sweet and gentle.  She is fully housebroken, loves to sleep in bed with you, but understands what a crate is.  She doesn't chew or show any destructive behavior.  She is an easy going, really sweet dog.

The Shelter thought she had cushings, because she drank more water than usual and her waist line was swollen.  They also found she has arthritis in her spine.  They tried to do an ultrasound to determine if she was spayed and instead found a huge mass in her stomach area.

ABR didn't care.  We committed to giving this little girl the best home possible for her remaining years.  After taking her to the Vet for an ultrasound to determine what the mass is, we were given some depressing but hopeful news.  She has a very large liver mass and it is bleeding. The bleed is encapsulated in a hematoma, but it is urgent that she have surgery or she will bleed out.  The vet says that with this surgery, she will be relatively healthy for a 10 year old girl.  Removing the cantalope size mass will aleviate the stress on her organs, and reduce her weight dramatically.  Also, she is anemic and malnourished, because the mass is preventing her organs from processing her food properly.  Once the mass is removed, her body can return to normal function, and hopefully she will live for 3-5 more years.

ABR is supporting the emergency surgery so that this sweet girl can have a wonderful rest of her life.  If you are interested in becoming a Brittany Buddy, and helping Miss Sadie, please reference her name and ABR number on any donations you send.

Thank you for your support

Foc, AKA Rex

(California)


Dog Story:

Rex arrived in the US from Spain in late July. He was dirty and his coat was matted so badly that large masses had to be cut out. He was a diamond in the rough and we all fell in love with him. After 3 baths, an expert grooming, a good ear cleaning and nail trim, Rex’s beauty glowed. He is a very sweet boy. He LOVES his people, and wants nothing more than to lay at your feet, get a scratch or a hug, and chew on a nice bone.

Rex has been in foster care for a bit longer than normal because he came to us limping and dripping urine. At 4 years old, we were concerned about these issues and wanted to rule out hip dysplasia, and incontinence issues. He has been such a trooper with the many vet appointments. One of his toes had a bone chip which caused his limp. The vet found no evidence of dysplasia. The Internal Medicine specialist put him on two medications for his urine drip and after a week, he has had no issues.

Rex sits for his meals, will lay down when instructed and comes when he is called. He is a wonderful hiking partner, because he stays close and doesn’t wander off. Rex does have one little negative – when he is nervous or uncertain he is very mouthy. When unsupervised, he will chew up clothing, dog beds, pillows – anything soft and fluffy during these emotional situations. If his human is close, he will grab your hand with his mouth, crawl into your lap, try to lick your face and just be a nuisance. When he is comfortable, knows the ropes and understands what is expected of him, he calms right down and is a joy. Giving him a bone or hoof to chew on directs his need to chew in a positive direction.

Rex gets along with other dogs, we don’t know about cats, but he doesn’t appear to have a high prey drive, so he could be just fine. Because of his mouthy behavior children under 8 years old are not wise. If you are interested in this beautiful, sweet boy, please reach out. I would keep him if I could. He is a great dog.

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

Jetta

(Nevada)


 Dog Story:

Jetta has been the perfect girl since arriving from Korea. She is house trained, crate trained, walks nice on a leash, and is great in the car. She made herself at home quickly and is the most relaxed young girl you’ll meet. She loves to cuddle on the couch, or of course, on the bed with her foster folks. She likes other dogs and is gentle with large and small dogs.

Jetta would do well with an alpha dog because she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. It took her a couple of weeks to learn how to play, but now a fast game of chase/take away with her foster friend is a joy to watch. She would be a great hiking dog and would likely stay close by, even though we haven’t tried that yet off leash. She would also be a fantastic family dog. I could see her being a young kid’s best friend and having tea parties or dress up or going to baseball games or scouts. I can’t stress enough how mellow she is. She has no fear of strangers, noises or new things. She also hasn’t barked since arriving in the US. All in all this is a fantastic dog. I really want her to find the perfect match. 

If your family could be the perfect match please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Jetta.

Truxton

(Oregon)



Dog Story:

Are you looking for a little international romance? How about a handsome Spaniard to stare lovingly into your eyes, cuddle with you on those cold winter nights that are soon to be here and best of all he doesn't get jealous if there are other dogs in your life.

Meet Truxton, he's an easy-going, 8 year old gentleman that is well behaved, gets along with everyone and loves a good siesta. Trux sits nicely but stay is well...a foreign concept. He's good on a leash, puts himself to bed in his crate when he wants a nap and is doing great with house-training considering he was likely not an inside dog until a few weeks ago. Truxton is a bit clingy and really likes his people, his entire world has been turned upside down in the past couple weeks so its understandable he gets a little anxiety when left alone, however he does fine when left in a crate. Trux is an opportunistic counter surfer, must be a language barrier thing.

If you're ready for a fun loving, sweetheart of a dog then Truxton is for you! Please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Truxton.

Blue

(Utah)

Dog Story:

Hey there, my name is Blue! . I am a very sweet boy with lots energy, but I am also good at settling down and snuggling with my foster family. I used to spend all my time outside, so my foster family is helping me crate train and go to the bathroom outside. I hear I'm doing really well! Sometimes when I'm tired I get a little snippy with the house dogs if they come next to me when my foster parents are petting me. I didn't get a lot of indiviual attention before now, but I think when I'm settled into my forever home I will be okay with other dogs sharing my parents. 

I don't know many basic skills, but I'm picking up "sit" and "down." I will need someone that is excited to teach me all the things I want to learn! I also need a fence. At my old home I spent most of my time with my litter-mates in a dog run, so when I get the chance to run, I think I might... I do know "come" and respond well to clapping. 

I'm a very good boy that will love you instantly! I hope I'll be perfect for you! 

If you think Blue would be the perfect addition to your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention his name.

Dog History:

Blue was surrendered by his previous family because they did not have the time to give him the attention and training he needs..

Chance

(Washington)

 Dog Story:

Hello My New Family! 

You will just L-0-V-E me cuz I'm such a grand gentleman!  I've had a wonderful life and get along great with dogs, kids, and all people are my friends! 

I am a big hunk-a-love at 65 pounds. I am in pursuit of love! life! and freedom, oh yeah!, love that freedom.  I walk pretty good on a leash and have been trustworthy at my other grandpa's lake cabin to be allowed to roam. 

I walked beautifully through the farmers' market, leaving folks along and greeting the doggies well. I don't jump on people either! I am so happy going for car rides, love camping in the RV, exploring every corner of the fenced dog park, swim in the lake, and then lay down for tummy rubs and cuddles and a power nap. I'm calm in the house and learned the doggie door after watching my foster bro-fur use it once! I think I'm very, very smart..

I'd like to have some challenges and learn more tricks and be active. Couch potato is good only after I've been out and about.  I'm a goofy guy with playfulness and enthusiam for all things. I am such a gentle man that therapy dog would suit me as then I'd get even more loves! 

I have a good nose to the ground when walking, love to dig at those moles, and just can't get enough of the outdoors and the company of my own peeps. 

I was a little stressed when I went to my foster home and barked alot when my foster mom left me, but I'm getting more secure now that she will come back and I don't bark much. 

My other family loves me so much.  They now  have 2 small children and didn't have time to play  with me or walk me so they decided that the best thing for me was a new family. 

Will you take me everywhere and show me a great time?? I can hike and walk for hours  to keep you company then relax with you at home or watch you in the garden. I'm looking forward to meeting you and showing you what an incredible guy I am!!

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.
