Posted Breed: Brittany. This handsome man is 12 years young! Can you believe that? Doesn't he looks awesome? It was unfortunate that Kyle's human fell on hard times having to move and unable to take Kyle. Kyle's person found him as a stray in Texas many years ago when he was just a pup. He has lived with him all this time. It was a very difficult decision to ask for our help and let Kyle go. Kyle had a thick coat when he arrived in Arizona but we referred him to a barber to give him a nice Arizona summer cut. He's liking his new cooler "do". His new look shows off his beautiful long tail and cute freckles. Not having a lot of interaction with other dogs, Kyle had a little trouble adjusting to a houseful of dogs. But he is doing better every day. He would probably do best as an only dog or maybe with one easy going female dog. He is NOT good with cats. Kyle is very loving to people and would make someone a wonderful companion. Kyle was recently altered and had a full blood panel completed. He tested negative for heartworm, tick and lyme disease. He shows no sign of arthritis or hip issues. He really is amazing for his age. Kyle qualifies for a senior to senior adoption if you are over age 60. His adoption donation would just be $100. If you are not 60 or over, Kyle's donation would be $200. We also have foster to adopt programs. If you would like more information on Kyle, contact Robin at britrescueaz@cox.net or call after 4 pm to 602-501-1844.

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.

      Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). This Very Handsome Liver and White boy is looking for his new forever home! I am a good boy. My name is Thomas, but my Mom calls me Tommy. NBRAN saved me, flea and tick ridden and with some small bite wounds, from a shelter. I am a senior boy (8-10 years old) with age related health issues including some lumps and bumps, arthritis, and hip dysplasia. I also have some chronic breathing issues. I was 10 lbs. overweight when rescued, but now I’m a good weight at about 50 lbs. My health issues have improved with weight loss, exercise, medical care, and good food, but a home without stairs is optimal. They say I am very “soft” because I get scared at loud noises or lots of commotion. I try to leave when I am uncomfortable. I get a little scared in new situations, but I adjust quickly. I am a good boy. They say I’m a very sweet, handsome boy. My tail wags a lot. I like people and other dogs, but NO CATS. I love to chew (my teeth are nubs) and need to have appropriate chew toys or I will find something inappropriate to chew. I love to explore the backyard with my foster sister, dig for “critters,” and chase squirrels. I will need a fenced yard at my new home to keep me safe as I chase little critters! Life is good at my foster home and I am a happy boy, but I would love a “forever” home of my own . I am a good boy. My adoption fee is $200.00 which allows NBRAN to help more of these wonderful pets. If you are interested in taking me into your home, please fill out an adoption application at the following link: https://www.nbran.org/adoptappl.asp . Please have your application approved by your state coordinator before contacting Gaye Bricker at BeauBritt2@aol.com to discuss your interest in adopting me. NBRAN has team of awesome volunteers that will help in transporting me up to 1400 miles to my new home! How about it... Am I your guy? I'd love to have have a forever home of my own. I am a good boy!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      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.

      Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). Adult L/W boy with BIG personality looking to be someone's Best Friend! If you are looking for a best friend, I am your dog! I am a 9 year old, liver and white, slightly chubby 70 Lb. male Brittany. I am neutered, up to date on my vaccinations, microchipped and recently had my teeth cleaned too! I was raised by my family since I was little, but then a new baby came home and they didn't have time for me. My new foster family has dogs and cats and they are OK, but being the only dog in my new home would be ideal so I can get all the the toys and attention. I am good with my commands, walking on a leash and riding in a car. But just sitting with you on the couch or by your feet is great too! I have a big personality and like to get my way, so if you have previous Brittany experience to keep me in line when I test the boundaries that would be good. I am a typical Brittany that likes to counter surf so you will need to put things up high where I can't reach them. Like with all Brittany's I am really curious about critters outside, so I will need a fenced yard to keep me safe. I would be a great hiking buddy but I don't like loud noises so hunting isn't an option for me. If you are interested in providing my forever home, please follow the following link to fill out an adoption application: https://www.nbran.org/adoptappl.asp. Please have your application approved by your state coordination before contacting Gaye Bricker at BeauBritt2@aol.com to further discuss your interest in adopting me. My adoption fee is $175.00 which allows NBRAN to help more of these wonderful pets. If you are 60 or over I qualify for our senior to senior adoption program and by adoption fee is reduced to $100.00. I am in Ohio now, but don't let distance stop you from adopting me as NBRAN has a wonderful group of volunteers who get me to my new home (within 1500 miles) as long as you are willing to drive the last 100 miles of my journey. How about it? Can I come and hang my hat in your home?

      Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). Hi! Wallie here. I am a 9 year old who found myself taken to a shelter because my owner was going to college and decided she didn't need me anymore. Thank goodness the wonderful people at NBRAN found out about me and picked me up! I am very healthy, in fact I'm a little bit over weight. I'm UTD on my vaccines, HW negative and super friendly. I am good with other dogs and cats are an unknown. When I was at the vet for my check up they found out I have a very mild form of something called Laryngeal Paralysis. My foster mom says it is barely noticeable now that I am happy at her house. Because of this it has been recommended that I be adopted in a Northern cooler climate to keep me healthy. I am such an amazing boy and will make a great companion, don't let my age fool you. I love to play and hunt the laser pointer as long as you will play with me. Did you say squeaky ball? I have one and it is my favorite toy! Car rides?? Oh Yes Please!!! Did I mention I am house trained, walk well on a leash, sit for treats, and don't jump on the furniture. I am a submissive boy and when bedtime comes I am happy to sleep in my bed on the floor next to you in your bed. Do I have any negative issues? Yes, just one sadly. I have some mild toy aggression, but my foster mom is working on it. Please don't let that be a deal breaker though. One last thing, the children in the neighbor just love me, so I guess that means I am good with children also. So if you are looking for the perfect guy to add to your life remember Wallie and email Kathy Miller the Georgia Coordinator to talk about me. Kathy.Miller4072@gmail.com. Wallie is being fostered in Georgia. His adoption fee is $200. He can be transported up to 1,400 miles on our Canine Railroad.

      Posted Breed: Brittany / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Hi everyone! My name is Baby Girl! I'm about 6 years old and as sweet as can be. I'm a very lucky girl because NBRAN saved me from being sent to a shelter in Louisiana during the flooding that occurred there earlier last year. The shelters were overloaded already and any dog that was surrendered to shelters faced certain euthanasia. My previous owners could not keep me because I went after their chickens. Another family tried to help but their little boy was allergic to me. That's when a rescue partner reached out to NBRAN for help. Thanks to NBRAN, I'm an "honorary" Brittany mixed with some Hound. My foster Dad just loves me to pieces because I'm very easy going, lovable and sweet. I love to romp and play with my foster pals but when it's time for cuddles, I'm "all in"! I love kids and love to play or watch TV with them on the sofa! I'm housebroken and trustworthy in the house. I'm spayed and up to date on all my vaccinations. My foster home is in Louisiana but I can be transported up to 1200 miles through our Canine Railroad. My adoption fee is a modest $275.00 but trust me, I'm worth way more than that! If you're looking for a wonderful, loving, and playful companion, I'm your gal....Baby Girl, that is! For more information, please contact Denise Turgeon at brittsnbits@gmail.com.

      Posted Breed: English Setter / Brittany / Mixed (long coat). Snowy is a 3 year old Brittany/Setter mix who was an owner surrender to metro animal control because the landlord would not let them keep her. She is white and liver with freckles on her face and some liver ticking in her white. Snowy can be a little shy and skittish around new people. One of her quirks is that she gets nervous and reactive when people put their hands over her head. She may nip when this happens. She will go in a crate but would prefer not to. She's trustworthy in the house alone and really doesn't need to be crated at all. Snowy walks well on leash and is housebroken. Snowy will not come when called and it becomes a game for her. She is good with other dogs and prefers watching cats instead of chasing them. She likes standing on her hind legs for a treat. Snowy will only be adopted locally and will not be adopted to homes with small children. Snowy can be a picky eater at times but is getting better. She hasn't attempted to climb over or dig out under the fence. She needs more work on recall. Snowy is totally vetted, microchipped, tattooed at spay site and HW negative. She is being fostered in Tennessee. Her adoption fee is $325.00. For more information contact settertown@aol.com

      Posted Breed: Brittany / Border Collie / Mixed (long coat). Addy is a one and half 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 would need to be fed separately as she can get a little food aggressive if another dog gets around her food. 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.
