Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). This handsome boy is Calvin. He is approximately 9 years old. With that alert look and sparkle in his eye, would you believe he is blind? Most people that meet him for the first time don't even recognize that he is blind because Calvin's blindness doesn't stop him from enjoying life. Calvin was surrendered by his family after he went blind and they were not prepared to cope with a blind dog. His blindness was most likely the result of SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome) a disease in dogs causing sudden blindness. But poor Calvin was also dealt another bad card that his previous owner probably did not address or recognize. He also has a condition called Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) which is the inability to properly digest food due to a lack of digestive enzymes made by the pancreas. He was very thin and basically starving to death when he arrived in Arizona. Now with a special enzyme mixed in his food twice a day, he is thriving and almost getting FAT! This enzyme is ordered from an on-line company and reasonably priced. Calvin is one special boy and deserves someone that recognizes just how special is really is. He is very loving, likes belly rubs and enjoys sitting in "his" chair on the front porch "watching" the neighborhood. If you would like to know more about Calvin or may be interested in adopting him, please contact Robin at britrescueaz@cox.net. Our adoption process includes an application, interview, home visit and vet check. His adoption donation is $200. Any person aged 60 years or over may adopt a senior dog (8 yrs or older) for $100. Calvin's not the dog for you? That's OK, we understand. But you can still help give him a great life. Contributions for Calvin's care can be made via our website www.nbran.org. Please designate that your donation is specifically for AZ-Calvin.

More About Brittany Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Brittany / Border Collie / Mixed (long coat). Addy is a three year old girl that was pulled from a kill shelter in TN. It is believed she is a Brittany/border collie mix. She is somewhat shy in new situations. She thoroughly enjoys playing with other dogs and loves being outside. Getting her to come back in is a game for her. She has not been a digger or fence climber. She has been spayed, had all her shots and microchipped. She is heartworm negative. Addy is crate trained and housebroken and has not chewed her bedding up Addy would enjoy another dog to play with. She loves attention and likes to be able to get outside some during the day so a home where someone is home part of the day would be ideal for her. ... She will require a fenced yard. Addy was adopted and returned because she would not bond with the family and she kept escaping. She would do best with a female adopter who has another dog and a secure fence. Addy is a little shy and it takes a while for her to warm up to you. She needs someone who can spend a lot of time with her. For more information on Addy, you may contact settertown@aol.com She is being fostered in TN. Her adoption fee is 325.00 and she can be transported up to l400 miles.

      Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). This gorgeous redhead is appropriately named "Red." He's about 5-1/2 years old and as sweet as they come. He gets along with other dogs, people and even cats! Red was found lying in a yard in rural Missouri. It was determined that he had a broken pelvis (likely from being hit by a vehicle) and was heartworm positive. He had the good fortune of being called to the attention of a vet in the area that loved the Brittany breed, and she got him on the road to recovery--finding a surgeon to do the surgery on his pelvis and donating much of her professional expertise, time, and resources while fostering him in her home through both his surgery recovery and his heartworm treatment. After he was neutered, we learned that the pins for Red's surgery had migrated. Orthopedic surgeons at the State's vet school have discouraged additional surgery with the belief that it could cause nerve damage. Because his hips could be vulnerable, Red will need to go to a home without a lot of stairs and a home that has a fair amount of carpet or stable rugs to provide him with good footing. He will also need to maintain a healthy weight so that his joints aren't overtaxed, and it is not recommended that he jump on/off beds and furniture but he loves his dog bed so that shouldn't be a problem for him! Red runs and plays with the other dogs and loves being part of a pack. He is overall very happy with a good quality of life. He loves attention and loves being brushed and petted and will gently nudge your hand to continue if you stop. Red is also crate trained. Red gets around well and has shown no signs of pain in the two months he has been on his current medication and supplements. The costs of those items will vary depending on region but that is also something to take into account when considering if Red is a good fit for you. Red is neutered and up to date on all vaccines. He will be a great addition to the family who is aware of his history and willing to keep him on the right path. If you would like to learn more about Red, please contact the Missouri coordinator, Lisa Langeneckert at mo-britts@sunlover.net. Red can be transported via our wonderful all-volunteer Brittany Railroad.

      Posted Breed: Brittany (short coat). Please contact Marianne for more information about this pet. Mikey is an active 11-year-old who came into rescue when his owner went into assisted living. Mikey gets along well with his foster sister, an 11-year-old Lab. They have been left alone in the house for several hours and there have been no accidents and no chewed or destroyed items. Mikey has received good behavior reports from doggie daycare and the groomer. Mikey sleeps on his bed on the floor through the night. He knows how to use a doggie door. Mikey would be good as an only dog or with another friendly dog who isn’t too rambunctious. Mikey is a “Nature Boy.” On pleasant days, he likes being outdoors. He’ll sniff around the entire yard and then lie down and watch the clouds roll by. He is well behaved in the car and loves to go for rides. He is moderately cuddly and loves a good massage. He likes his walks but needs some work with pulling – a harness would be a good idea. Mikey will need to be in a home with a secure 6-foot fenced yard and preferably with trees that house critters Mikey loves to watch. Mikey does get into a little mischief. He likes to take any used Kleenex that might by lying around or even snatch one out of someone’s pocket. He pokes his snout between couch and chair cushions to see if anything good might be there, but does not get up on furniture. However, he occasionally does some counter surfing if any edible items are left close to the edge. He is excited to meet new people and will jump if not restrained. Mikey is neutered, current on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. If interested in making Mikey a member of your family, please complete an online application at www.nbran.org (under the Adopt tab). If you have any questions after you complete your application, please email wanbran@comcast.net. Mikey’s adoption fee is $200 ($100 for a senior-to-senior adoption). He can be transported up to 1400 miles but preference will be given to adopters in the West. Once the application has been completed if deemed a good fit, your state coordinator will contact you. A phone interview, home visit, and vet check will be required as part of the approval process.

      Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). Don’t let a dog with no tail turn you off. Scout is a 6-1/2 year old orange and white male who is both very handsome and very well mannered. Scout was adopted from Nbran when he was a puppy and then returned due to no fault of his own. When he came back to Nbran he was an over weight dog with 2 bad knees. He has since slimmed down and his knees are almost completely healed. He might never be a barrel racer, but he has no issues with mobility and his quality of life is excellent. Scout loves, loves, loves to play fetch with his fish. He also likes to cuddle in bed, but will also spend time in his crate. He gets along well with most other dogs. He’s not been tested on cats nor children, although he should be fine with older considerate children. This boy has been a joy to foster, he’s 100% house trained and the only trouble he’ll get into is when there's some food within reach. Guess he doesn’t like being slim. While Scout also loves to go for walks, he does pull very hard, so a strong arm is required to walk him. Scout is healthy and is UTD on all vaccinations, is heart worm negative, on preventative, he is neutered and micro chipped. His adoption fee is $350. If you are interested in Scout please go to nbran.org and complete an online application. The coordinator in your state will contact you. NBRAN does require a home visit and vet check.Scout will also require a fenced yard. He will be transported up to 1200 miles. The Michigan Coordinator handling the adoption for Scout is Georgene Norris. Please contact her if you have any additional questions at georgenenbran@yahoo.com

      Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). Are you looking to make a difference for a rescue dog? Tonto is a 5 year old male who was used as a stud dog and lived in a kennel for his entire life. That is until NBRAN stepped in. He needs someone who is patient and has a soft voice. He does get along with other dogs, but prefer female dogs. He is shy around male humans, but will warm up to them. Tonto loves to sleep in bed with you. When the humans leave the house he will stay quietly in his crate. So Tonto is looking for that special home. He’ll need a physical fence, and hopefully someone who has the time to help him learn how great it is to be a loved and pampered house dog. He is currently in foster care in Michigan. His adoption fee is $350.00. He can be transported up to 1000 miles, with the adopter driving the last 100 miles of his journey. NBRAN does require a home visit and vet check. If you are interested in Tonto please go to nbran.org and complete an online application. The coordinator in your state will contact you.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Brittany / Mixed (medium coat). Hi! My name is Ranger. I came from a hoarding situation in Alabama along with 30 other dogs. Some nice people from NBRAN took me in. I have been living with the best foster parents and 2 Brittany brothers in VA. Here is what my foster mama, has to say about me. Ranger is young and is still learning good house manners. He’s very curious about everything as his current foster family is his first house experience. He is a quick learner though. He will steal a slipper or anything interesting, given the opportunity; he responds quickly to a sharp “NO. Ranger LOVES to play with humans and other dogs! Close quarter play with humans includes nibbling, but he’s learning not to do this. He plays nicely and tirelessly with the other dogs. He’s quickly submissive if the others tell him to knock it off! Ranger needs a yard large enough for daily running and play. It would be best for Ranger to have a fur sister or brother to burn off his energy. Ranger has walked nicely on the leash when alone with his humans. When other dogs are present, he just wants to hop and play. Again, he is learning. With his crate in the same room as his humans and other dogs, Ranger sleeps quietly in a large crate from 10 to 6:30-7am. He keeps his crate dry, but he must be lead to the door quickly after the long night. He is outside often during the day so he has done very well with potty training! Ranger will initially shy away from new people and even objects that are new to him. He needs a little coaxing at times. He is close to 50lbs and maybe overwhelming for small children or very elderly folks. However, he is a sweet boy and seems to love everyone and everything, given the chance. At a recent holiday gathering, he did fabulously with a large group of mingling people, including very a active 3 and 5 year old. Ranger is not cat tested and not interested in chasing squirrels, birds or other small wild creatures, so a cat may be just fine too. Ranger will be a wonderful addition to any active family! However, he will need an owner that will continue to be patient and nurturing to him. On going training, will be a must. If you are interested in opening your heart and home, please fill out an application. Contact Leslie Trenta @ leslie@leslietrentadesigns.com or 703-623-7807 if you have questions. Ranger's adoption fee is $350.

      Breed: Brittany
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). Hi Everyone, meet Cooper NBRAN's latest senior boy READY to find his FOREVER HOME! Cooper is a Orange & White neutered male, estimated to be about 10 years old. Cooper came to NBRAN as a stray from a shelter in Illinois, so unfortunately we have no previous history on his life before he came to us. Cooper came to NBRAN un-neutered, Lyme & Heartworm positive but now after great foster care here in Central PA he is well on the road to recovery. Cooper is now updated on all vetting including having completed treatment for both heartworm and Lyme's. Cooper is a tall Brittany and weighs in at about 40#. He has lots of energy for a senior guy so he would love a back yard with a tall physical fence and a friend to play with too. His prey drive seems high so we recommend NO cats unless they are willing to teach him a lesson or two. He’d also need a lessons on chickens, too. He can be pretty bouncy and very strong, so older children would probably be better. Since he was a stray and is still in need of some training breed savvy parents would probably be a good idea. Cooper is crate trained having spend a great deal of time in his crate for his heartworm treatment these last 2 months in addition to exercise restrictions. He is house trained. He has a little potty dance that his foster parents look for. If he’s out of his crate, he’ll go to the door and dance. He can climb up and down uncarpeted stairs with no trouble. He rarely barks. He also eats in his crate alongside the 3 other resident Brittanys and has shown no food aggression as they nose around inches from him. Nor does he worry when another dogs uses “his” toys. Cooper loves balls and other toys. He loves to dig in the toy box for his favorite of the moment. He’ll pull out a toy, throw it on the ground, flop on his back, and roll on the toy. He is a strong chewer; Kongs and marrow bones are his favorite. His foster Mom says he should have been named, George, as in Curious George, as his nose never seems to stop working. He wants to sniff every corner, bag, box, bush, and tree. On walks, his nose is on the ground catching all possible smells. He wants to see what’s on the kitchen counter; so its best not to leave out temptations. Cooper can be a little shy around new people and things and hides behind his Foster Mom, but he warms up nicely. Cooper's foster Mom also says his vocabulary is growing. He can “sit”, “wait” at the door, although we are still careful with all open outside doors and he waits in a sit/down while I walk around the room. He knows “this way” which guides him in the right direction on a walk. He can wrap himself and me in his leash faster than you can say “let’s go”. He might have some shepherd genes in him because he tries to herd me to his direction. He can walk very nicely on a leash, but only headed toward home. His outbound leash needs more work or the half-hitch around his belly. He understands “no” and “drop it”. They are even beginning to play around with early agility in the basement. Way to Go Cooper! Ready to Take Cooper into your Home? If so, please consider filling out an application online at: http://nbran.org/adopt/adoption-application Once you application is received the coordinator in the State in which you live will be in touch to follow-up regarding your interest in Cooper. Need to reach your State Coordinator, find their contact information here http://nbran.org/about/state-provincial-coordinators Cooper's adoption fee is 200.00, which will help NBRAN cover the vetting costs and other expenses associated with bringing Brit like Cooper back to good health and readying them for adoption. However, being a senior boy Cooper also is apart of the senior to Senior adoption program, so ask your State coordinator for details., Don't live in PA or close by, No Problem! NBRAN also has a wonderful transport team who will help bring Cooper to his new family, up to 1200 miles with the adoptive family being responsible for the last 100 miles, at no additional fee. Still have questions? Contact Chris Eddinger at ceddinger@verizon.net Thank you!

I like to pick my own friends, so I’m not good with very small dogs, cats or chickens.. although my foster home has all 3 I would prefer a home without them. I could be an only dog and would love all the attention. At 3 yrs I have not been schooled in manners.. A home with time and patience is what would be best for me. A fenced yard is required, I am crate trained, house trained BUT not leash trained or obedience trained. I don’t even know shake or sit.. Do you have time for me?? Linkin needs a strong handler who is very Brittany savvy. He also needs structured daily exercise as he's a very active dog. A fence is required. It would be best if he's not crated for long periods of the day, so someone who works from home or is retired would be great. He does love to be loved. Overall a happy, rambunctious, healthy young dog. Linkin is neutered, micro chipped and up to date on all vaccinations. He is currently in foster care in Michigan. His adoption fee is $375.00.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). When NBRAN heard that there was a high Brittany mix female in a shelter in Tennessee with her two babies, we just couldn't take Mom and leave the puppies behind. So we brought the "family" into rescue knowing we would be able to find good homes for each of them. This is Maple. She's a 7 month old spayed female who obviously looks more like her Daddy (not sure what he is) than her Brittany mix Momma but we can all agree she's as cute as a button. Moxie is Maple's Mom and Mocha is her sister. She is UTD on her vaccines, wormed and is ready for her forever home. Maple is good with other dogs but can be dominant in play with a dog smaller than her. She comes when called . She will chew on her bedding some.She is active and loves to play. Maple and her family are being fostered in Tennessee. Her adoption fee is $350 to offset the cost of vetting and to help us rescue more Brittanys in need. She can be transported up to 1,200 miles through our Canine Railroad. If you would like more information on Maple, please contact settertown@aol.com.
