Jagger

(Alabama)

Dog Story:
 What's liver and white and loves to give kisses? Me, me, me. They call me "J" because they can't agree on how to pronounce my name. Humans are so silly. Which makes me a good fit because I'm a silly young boy. Herself says I'm typical for my age...10 months going on 8 weeks. But we all know boys mature later then girls. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it. I have a great start as I like other dogs and little people and I know how to sit! Plus I usually at least look at you when you call me. Really what more could you ask for? Nothing I can think of. So if you'd like the job of helping me mature for all the kisses you can handle drop me a line
J aka Jagger

Jagger is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative and on preventative. If you need a silly, adorable guy to brighten your days, please complete an adoption application and mention his name.

JC

(Georgia)


Dog Story:
Say Cheese!!! Hi friends, My name is JC (My foster mom calls me Jake.) I was picked up as a stray and no one came to claim me.

I'm a really sweet boy. I'll sit really pretty and come if you call and somebody in my past taught me some really good manners, because I know how to shake hands with you. The vet thinks I'm about 4 and I'm a pretty low key guy. I love a good walk, but I'm also ready to just hang out an chill with the resident 5 year old child. I'm a very patient boy and I'll lay right on the floor with her and let her play vet with me.

I actually have to visit the real vet a lot, because while I am mostly a healthy boy, I have heartworms. I'm just starting my treatment and will be with my foster family the rest of the summer while I undergo the expensive, long treatment that will help me get better so that I can finally get a furever family of my own.

If you can, will you consider being my Brittany Buddy. If you click on the banner above, you can donate to my medical care and help ABR get me all better and ready to adopt.

Honey

(North Carolina)

Dog Story:
Honey is a very active 10-month-old, 30 lb., spayed, orange/white purebred Brittany girl who appreciates being indoors after spending her previous life left chained outside until coming into foster care.  She is heartworm negative and up-to-date on vaccines.

She currently lives in a foster home with 2 other resident dogs, 2 horses and 3 outside barn cats. She loves to play and wrestle with our 52 lb. male dog, chasing tennis balls and tugging on a variety of rope toys.  While outside, she has displayed the typical Brittany characteristic of searching for anything that moves.  She leaps for dragonflies, watches intently the 3 cats that seem to taunt her on the other side of the fence and has discovered that frogs taste nasty!  Honey will definitely need the companionship of another dog(s).  She loves cuddling; belly rubs and enjoys being spoiled while watching TV.  Her favorite show is Animal Planet.

Honey sleeps all night on a comfy dog bed in her crate.  She has been really good with house training and runs to the door when she needs to go out.  We realized early it’s not always to go potty but we praise her for going to the door and eventually after making several laps around the yard, she is back indoors.
  
We have begun working on basic commands with her and she is perfecting sit, but needs continued training on down, come, and off.  She rides nicely in the car while crated. She is starting to get the objective of walking on a leash, but can easily get distracted. Cats may be an issue since she has a high hunting prey instinct and we are not sure what she would do. 

Honey loves EVERYONE and EVERYTHING it is exciting to see her sheer love of life. She would do best in a home with a fenced yard, a young dog(s) to play with and an adoptive family that will offer her exercise and continue obedience training.  All she wants is a chance to be in a loving home.  Won’t you consider Honey to be part of your family?   If so please fill out our online adoption application at ) and mention Honey.

History:
Honey was purchased off craigslist by a good samaritan as they wanted her to have a life outside of being chained outside.  They then contacted ABR to help this sweet girl on to a better life.

Tarzan

(North Carolina)

Dog Story:
Hola to America!   My name is Tarzan- an American name for a handsome Spanish dude. I arrived in America with excitement and enthusiasm, looking forward to my new life.

Solo

(South Carolina)

Dog Story:
Hi, my name is Solo and I’m looking for my forever family. I have a lot of energy and love to play! I can be a bit rough as I love to give full body greetings. All I need is a bit of obedience training and I will be the greatest dog!

I love other dogs and all people! I’m a very happy dog who loves to cuddle. It would be great if my new home had someone who could be at home with me a lot or at least another dog to stay with me so I have company. My foster mom says I have a very soft mouth and sit real nice for a treat.

If you would like me to come home with you please fill out our adoption application mention Solo and perhaps we can meet sometime soon!

History:
Solo was surrendered by his owner, after changes in their health made them unable to care for him.

Hank

(Virginia)

 

Dog Story:
Meet Hank.  Hank is a typical Brittany- his loves include adventure, his people, and the great outdoors. Hank is going on 6 yrs old and has been with his family all of his life including with his Britt sister.  If you have ever talked about active Brittanys, you might have heard the phrase “he needs a job”.  Hank is looking for employment.  He is not as laid back as his sister- not that he is wild, but has more of a sense of curiosity.  He currently has a large fenced area to spend most days in, which is great, but Hank needs more human companionship and direction to make the most of his adventurous personality. An active person, couple or family would be a great and fun match for Hank.  Just no feline companions, please.

Please submit an adoption application if you are interested in learning more about Hank

History:
Hank is currently residing with his family in Hume, Virginia.

Jackson

(Virginia)

Dog Story:
Are you searching for the exuberance of a young brittany? Do you want to provide a forever home to a senior brittany? If so, then Jackson is the boy for you! He has all the unbridled enthusiasm of a puppy wrapped up in a slightly graying face and 10 year old body.

Jackson has been an outdoor dog and never learned basic obedience or good manners. He can be a challenge but in a short time he has started to listen more attentively. We are working on "off" as he is a counter-surfer and "wait" as he tends to bolt through the door and he has made progress in both areas. He is well-socialized and loves people. He also is getting along with two females and a 16 year old male Britt. He has been challenged by the alpha female and immediately backed away. The former owner said he is ok with kids and cats. Jackson is not used to being on a leash and pulls hard so a harness is recommended for walks. He also seems very interested in the gate of the 4 foot chain link fence so a solid fence would be a better option for him.

Transitioning a dog to life in a house and sleeping in a crate requires patience. That combined with love is what Jackson needs most. Despite his sometimes rambunctious behavior, from the first night here he has displayed a willingness to please and that wide-eyed adoration of the human who scratches his ears that all fans of this breed know and love. We all deserve a 2nd chance. Jackson deserves a 2nd chance at being loved, cuddled, appreciated and to hear the words "good dog". Can you be the person that gives Jackson that chance??

Please submit an adoption application if you are interested in hearing more about Jackson.

History:
Jackson was surrendered by his family when there was nobody left to care for him. Jackson had been with the family all of his life, but was relegated to the outside yard with minimal attention. With that said, he is making up for all he missed in the first part of his life, and is looking for a home with people who will give him the attention, love and lots of petting he so deserves.

   

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.
