Dog Story:
 LITTLE BOY SEEKING SAME

Ok, really I’m seeking a forever home. A boy of any age would work. A girl of any age is also very workable. Actually any human of any age can apply for the position of my new companion. And what a wonderful companion I promise to be! I’m very bright. I’ve already learned to sit. Actually it’s a down but the peeps here are not picky so “close” works. I have excellent house manners but do not require them of prospective humans. I’m crate trained and realize that is only a plus if you are a dog. I don’t mind cats if they don’t mind me. I understand words like... “hey you, come here” and “out the door!”. Oh and I play well others no matter how many feet they have. I am just a little bit shy but that is because I haven’t been around much. I like to travel. Like all Brittanys I’m a bit of a busy body. You know, your business is my business. Oh and I guess you should know that I’m 8 months old and a very handsome liver and white. So if you would like a young, handsome, clever companion who agrees that “close” works please apply within  adoption application

McGee

(Florida)


Dog Story:
Greetings, my name is McGee!  I am one of the luckiest rescue Britts around, and also unlucky in a way, but my life has already changed for the better.  I came from a rural shelter in Alabama as a stray.  The fantastic shelter staff couldn’t believe someone didn’t come looking for me, so ABR was called and took me in.  Then I got on my own private airplane – two wonderful volunteer pilots flew me in their plane from Alabama to Florida, and I was such a lucky passenger enjoying my time on wings! 

I am also really lucky because I’m in a foster home with a loving family that wants to adopt me once I get better!  But I’ve also had a rough time of it because we found out I have something called hip dysplasia.  My left hip is especially in need of fixing, since my joints have worn down making my hind end weak, and I can’t do much exercise or activity like young Brittanys should.   

The good news is I have awesome vets that have checked me out and can help fix me up!  I’ve had all sorts of poking and prodding and stretching, even laying still like a good boy on the table for x-rays (most dogs just get cute pictures of their outsides, but guess they wanted to see what my insides look like too!)  When they did x-rays, the vets saw my bad hip right away, and also that I have been shot.  Not sure how I ended up with those pellets in me, but they don’t bother me.  It’s just my hip that needs fixing, and ABR wants to make sure I can live the best healthy life.  I will need surgery to repair my left hip joint, and my foster to adopt family is going to take great care of me as I recover from surgery.  I could really use some Brittany Buddy friends to help with my vet expenses as I get back in good shape.  I finally get to be in a real home for the holidays, and I’m so excited that soon I will be a healthy boy again!  Sending Britt hugs and kisses – Love, McGee

History:
McGee is a darling, affectionate Brittany sweetheart who has weathered rough times in his young years.  We don’t know much about his past, but even with his stiff hip and birdshot along one side, McGee greets every day with a relaxed smile and a passion for life.  He has never met a stranger and loves all the attention he’s been missing, belly rubs and gentle walks around the yard, and celebrated his first Thanksgiving in a real home with his foster to adopt family. 

McGee’s x-rays showed he has bilateral hip dysplasia, causing lameness and muscle atrophy in his back end with the hip joints grinding together.  His left hip is especially degraded and will require surgery to restore movement in the hip joint, allowing him to do normal exercise and motion without pain.  McGee has been evaluated with an excellent team of orthopedic veterinarians and will have expert care for his hip replacement.  We are thankful that surgery will be able to help this sweet boy, and want to ensure McGee has the quality of life he deserves to enjoy a healthy life without pain.  All Brittany Buddy donations for McGee will go directly towards helping with his medical costs, and we are incredibly grateful for the generous supporters who make it possible for ABR to help rescue Brittanys in need live their best life!

Mary

(North Carolina)


Dog Story:
“Love me, nurture me, and help me to build up my confidence”. 
Mary is in a loving foster home, but with 4 other dogs and lots of kid activity, she is really hoping for a home and family of her own where she can settle into a routine and not have to share everything and everyone.  She has a hard time relaxing in her current environment, and she came from a similar, busy environment in Spain, before taking her overseas voyage to the US. 

Mary does well with other dogs and kids, but no cats please.  She is such a sweet dog and we would love to find her a home where she can relax, settle and share the love with a single person or couple. Mary is healthy, approximately 33 lbs, and has a beautiful orange roan coat.

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

History:
Mary came to ABR from Spain, where she waited very patiently for a plane ride to the U.S where we had a caring foster home waiting for her. She is now waiting for her forever home.

Corazon

(Virginia)


Dog Story:
Hola! My name is Corazon (my heart in Spanish) and I flew all the way from Spain to capture YOUR heart. Just check out my irresistible nose. I have the most unique nose of all Brittany Spaniels in America. I want nothing more in life than to cuddle next to you when you are watching TV or sleeping in bed. My zoomies in the back yard are strong. I love running in circles tossing my stuffed toys around.

I have an extremely strong bond with my foster mom- my foster dad- I'm still warming up to him (males can be scary). When she leaves, I get worried and wait eagerly by the door for her to come back. I would do best with a fur sibling to help with my separation anxiety. Crates aren't for me. I’m also working on my house manners, after living on the street, I've learned to seize the opportunity- especially when it comes to my humans meals they leave on the table. My foster mom is working on exposing me to the world while on a leash, however the outside world is a scary place. I need a human who can love me and help build my confidence.

Who is going to be the lucky human to take me home and get all the wet doggie kisses?

History:
ABR rescued Corazon through our International program. These lucky dogs have had a rough life and have found good fortunes in the US through this program. Corazon has been in a foster home and is ready to settle into a lucky foster home. No Spanish required!

 

   

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.
