Saba

(New Jersey)


International Adoption Donation $ 450.00

Hola Amigos! My name is Saba, I say “Hello my friends” as everyone I meet is my new BFF. I will greet you by standing on my back legs and giving you a big hug! If you sit down I will climb on your lap and give you some kisses and claim you as “my own”!

I came from a high kill shelter in Spain where I was one of the “lucky ones” to get a second chance. I was sprung from the shelter, brought to a foster home in Spain where I was vetted and patiently waited for my turn to come to the US with ABR. After a long flight I am finally here and my foster mom says I am so resilient and doing great.

I am learning the ropes from my Brittany foster sister Gila. We scout the yard, play toys, wrestle some, and we also snuggle up with mom and dad. Life has been really good. I am good on leash and have mastered sit, down (to lay down), off (for feet off the counters), stay (at the doors as when I first got her I wanted to go out with my humans) and think I have finally gotten the thing they call house breaking down too!

It is clear I have been spoiled in my prior life and am happy my foster home has allowed me to continue to snuggle up just as tight as I can get to watch TV and at bed time. So my new home needs to be “A-ok" with allowing me this privilege of being on the furniture also as I think my heart would just be broken otherwise.

There will be no long distance adoptions for this sweet girl she has traveled so far up to this point we are looking to keep her transition low key and stress free. If you would like to come meet this sweet girl please fill out our adoption application and mention Saba.

History:

Saba was pulled from a high kill shelter in Spain. She is spayed, microchipped, up to date on shots, heartworm negative and on preventative, leishmania, lymes, erlichiosis and annaplamosis negative. She recently tested positive for hookworm and has been treated. ABR will pay for retesting in 4 weeks.

Kira

(New Jersey)


International Adoption Donation $450

Meet Kira! Kira is a sweet well-mannered little girl all the way from Spain. We have fostered this easy going girl for only a short time, but already we are so impressed with how well she behaves. Kira asks to go out with a loud bark and has had no accidents in the house yet. She likes her crate, but has been left out and alone in the house for up to four hours at a time.

She gets along great with our older Brittany, and has no interest in the cat (other than them both chasing each other in play at 2 in the morning (groan)). We go for walks frequently, and although Kira does pull a little, she is great on a leash and walks well with our Brittany.

The only thing Kira needs to work on is her shyness and her skittishness to loud noises, but that will come when Kira finds her forever home and gains confidence in secure surroundings and stability.

Kira is a very happy, healthy young girl who will make an easy transition to her forever home, as she has been such a pleasure to foster. Could that lucky “forever home” be you? If you would like to come meet Kira, please fill out our adoption application today!

History:

Kira was pulled from a high kill shelter in Spain where she was move to a foster home. She is spayed, microchipped, up to date on shots, heartworm, leishmania, lymes, erlichiosis and annaplamosis negative. She then waited patiently for her turn to come to the US with ABR to find her forever home!

Pablo

(New Jersey)


International Adoption Donation $450

Pablo came to ABR from Spain as part of the International Program so very little is known about his past. I suspect he did not have a very happy life before coming to America. You see when Pablo first arrived he was very fearful of humans but has made tremendous progress in his socialization. It has taken him quite some time to learn to trust people since we have allowed him to move forward at his own pace.

This sweet gentle little fellow has made such great progress in putting that all behind him. He is anxiously awaiting for his forever home “Could that be you?”

Since he is young, play and ADVENTURE is his middle name. He is also very inquisitive and will require a secure fence. Pablo comes when called and takes treats very gently from your hand. He is quite the gentleman as he sits and waits for his resident brother and sister to get their treat before taking his.

Pablo is house broken and crate trained. All you have to do is open the door, he walks right in, and of course, a treat is his reward. He is very food motivated, which helps, in his training. Pablo walks very nicely on a leash and also rides well in a car. He gets along beautifully with other dogs but he does have a prey drive so not sure, how he would do with cats.

Pablo has surely stolen our hearts but with two Brittanys of our own we know the right “forever home” is out there for this sweet boy that can give him everything we have and so much more. So if you are interested in adopting him please fill our adoption application  and note Pablo.

History:

Pablo weighs just 23 lbs. is neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm and leishmania negative. He is also on heartworm and flea/tick preventative.

Paula

(New York)


Paula is on the small, STOCKY side weighing about 35.5 Lbs. and measuring about 14.5 inches at the shoulder. She is really gentle. I try to play with her and get her riled up and she will not bite me even if I put my hand in her mouth. She will lay on her back and slap your hands with her paws while wiggling all around.

She is happiest laying on the sofa next to you. I think she would be OK with any age kids but you would have to be a little careful with very small children. She really likes to be with people.

Paula is not good at holding her business. She has a schedule once in the morning, once at 3pm, and once late at night. While I always work from home she checks to make sure I'm there about every 15 minutes. You might find a toy with the inside ripped out on occasion. On a Saturday morning we can sleep in and she has no problem sleeping in as well. She likes sleeping on her bed in our room.

Paula needs to have a physically fenced in yard to safely run around in. She walks very well on a leash but likes, and with her extra weight needs, to run around as well. Paula has an overwhelming urge to hunt. She is great when she is loose and you have her attention, but if she sees a squirrel, cat, rabbits, etc. She will go after it with gusto. She will not listen to anything you say – she is gone. In a fenced yard it is not a problem as she has nowhere to go but out loose I think she would RUN FOREVER. Due to Paula’s high prey drive, she can NOT go to a home with cats.

Paula is a little cuddly teddy bear with a lot of love to give and to get. She loves to give out kisses and just loves her scratches and pets. She would let you pet her forever if she had it her way. Paula loves her people and would love to have someone home with her and who wants to spend lots of time with her. She would even like to have another Britt in the home to keep her company as she enjoys the company of the resident Brittanys.

History:

Paula was rescued from Serbia, she was found in a cemetery pregnant full of fleas and ticks, and was so sick that a transfusion was necessary and she lost her puppies. The wonderful people in Serbia helped her get healthy enough for her to travel. Once Paula arrived with her foster she then had to be treated for heartworm but we are happy to say she is now heartworm free and she is now living the good life.

If you are interested in Paula, then please fill out the adoption application. Paula is up to date on her shots, spayed and microchipped, as well as on heartworm preventative.

Nolin

(Ohio)


Nolin is a very sweet senior Britt. He’s an 11 years young, 41 lb, orange and white Brittany that just wants to be loved. Nolin is a laid-back dog with this easy-going personality that fits right in with his foster friends from day one! When Nolin arrived at his foster family, it was a non-event with the three other resident Britts. Nolin immediately started playing nicely and has shown no dominant tendencies. Sadly, Nolin has significant hearing loss due to untreated ear infections. However, no one seemed to tell Nolin about the hearing loss as he bounces around with confidence and enthusiasm. None of this stops him from doing Brittany zoomies around the fenced-in yard. Also he has thrived with a routine as he knows what is expected of him at certain times.

Nolin takes cues from his pack mates so a companion dog for him will be important. Also a fenced yard is a must so Nolin can continue to safely enjoy the freedom of the good life. He loves to run with abandon in the backyard or indoor riding arena – the typical Brittany zoomies! He simply wiggles with excitement. He continues to be very hesitant on a leash so the ability for him to get exercise in a yard is his primary outlet. Although not a fan of crating, he can be trusted to be loose while his foster family isn’t home. Like many seniors – two & four-legged alike – he has some aches & pains that require pain management. He has relief when taking Carprofen daily. In addition, he seems helped by the senior supplement, Senilife.

History:

Nolin was found near Lake Nolin in Kentucky – very thin & exhausted - and taken to the local shelter. ABR was notified and took him into our foster care. He is heartworm negative, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and neutered. If you think this fabulous boy in the one for you, please complete the adoption application.

   

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.
