Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). Hey Everyone, My name is Graham and I'm a very sweet 11 year old orange & white Brittany guy who is looking for a place to call HOME FOREVER! I love hanging out here in Virginia Beach with my foster family and playing with my foster brother Max, but what I truly dream of is a place to call my very own! Graham maybe 10 years old, but don't let his age fool you he is full of energy. He loves to go out and go walking, running and has shown some interest in birds, but not quite at a hunting level. He does well on leash but would certainly do better with continually training. He loves his belly to be rubbed and enjoys hanging out or snuggling with his people or taking a romp in the yard. This means, Graham will also NEED a secure fence in his new home to help keep him safe! Graham does well with other dogs and loves people, but cats are pretty much unknown but given his curiosity to explore and interest in other animal we advise against it. His foster Mom has been working on commands and also helping him become the perfect gentleman. Graham is house trained, does well in the crate, as well as being fully vetted to included being neutered, micro chipped and up to date on all shots and heartworm negative. HOWEVER, Graham does have a VERY SPECIAL ear condition called vasculitis that will require medication, as well as, routine monitoring by the vet BUT again this in NO WAY slows this sweet boy down! So, the only thing missing is a place to call his own-Is that your Home? If you believe Graham is the Brit you are looking for, please fill out an application online at: http://www.nbran.org/adoptappl.asp. After filing out an application please contact the coordinator for the State in which you live. The contact information for the State Coordinators can be found at the following link: http://www.nbran.org/contacts.asp. Graham is currently being fostered in Virginia Beach, Virginia and his adoption fee is 200.00, which will help NBRAN cover the vetting costs and other expenses associated with bringing Brit like Graham back to good health and readying them for adoption. However is you are a senior (over age 60) like Graham then you both qualify for the senior to senior program, which makes the adoption fee 100.00. Don't live in Virginia or close by, No Problem! NBRAN also has a wonderful transport team who will help bring Virginia to her new family, up to 1200 miles with the adoptive family being responsible for the last 100 miles, at no additional fee. Contact Leslie Trenta for information at leslie@leslietrentadesigns.com Thank you!

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). Meet Miss (lucky) Penny. She’s so sweet you can’t help but fall in love with her. Penny doesn’t know she’s thirteen. She thinks she’s still a young dog. She loves to play with her foster sister, and looks forward to walks and car rides. Don't let this petite 27 pound girl fool you. She has an adventurous spirit so she will escape if she is not watched carefully. Penny will need the security of a fenced yard to run around in. She is friendly to other dogs and absolutely loves people. Penny has a great appetite and doesn’t notice that she is missing teeth and that the ones there are not that great. A bully stick is Penny’s favorite thing to chew; however, she gets excited about any snack that might come her way. Because Penny is slightly under weight, she will need to remain on a high quality, grain free kibble. She makes sure she never misses a meal. Penny’s hearing isn’t quite what it used to be but she doesn’t miss out on anything. She loves being part of a pack, but doesn’t seem to mind when left on her own as long as her soothing puppy music is playing in the background. She would be fine being an only dog if she gets lots of attention and is part of the family. Penny is healthy (passed a senior blood panel), UTD on all vaccinations, heart worm negative, (on preventative), spayed, and micro chipped. Her adoption fee will be $200 to offset her vetting and to allow NBRAN to rescue more of these wonderful family members. If you are interested in making Penny a part of your family, please complete the on-line application by visiting www.NBRAN.org, Adoption Center, Adoption Application. Once the application is complete, you will hear from your local area State Coordinator. T his process includes a detailed phone interview, a vet check, and a home visit. Penny is eligible for our wonderful Senior-to-Senior program. If you are a senior, age 60 or over, her adoption fee is $100.

      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 . After filing out the adoption application you can contact Gaye Bricker a 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!

      Posted Breed: French Brittany (medium coat). Special Boy… Seeking a Special Family Hello world! My name is King. I am a 7 year old French Brittany looking for my forever home! My former life was NOT good! When NBRAN found me, I had been in a shelter for quite some time. I was safe, but I didn't like that place! I need a special family! I need an owner that understands dogs and has experience with Brittanys or another sporting breed. I need a family that is home more often than not. I LOVE to snuggle and I LOVE humans! Small humans and young humans make me nervous. I am eager to please and comfortable with adults, a true companion dog. I am kennel trained, but would prefer to be close to you snuggled on the couch. I will work for treats and I'm told I'm a fast learner. I greet my humans with a wiggle butt, a smile, and -if you're lucky- kisses from a King! Running, sniffing and exploring are some of my favorite things. I absolutely need a 6-foot privacy fence to keep me safe. I love to go on walks. A harness reminds me that I need to slow down. My new owner needs to be proactive about reading the environment and always managing the situation. A really nice trainer came to see me and she said I’m leash reactive to other dogs. I guess I need to work on greeting other dogs. No dog parks for me! So right now, I need to be the “one and only”.. you know.. the King of the Castle. I need an owner that will be committed to my future. I know I can do it! I just need some help! A safe yard, daily walks, and daily companionship will help me stay happy and healthy! Everyone tells me what a great boy I am. All I want is a family that will accept me as a companion and will help me! I am eager to please and love to hear that I'm a good boy. If you are looking for a sweet, snuggly, active, smart boy, please fill out an application, because I'm your guy.. The King! King would thrive in a forever home that is stable and committed to on-going training. Please visit www.NBRAN.org, Adoption Center, Adoption Application. Once the application is complete, you will hear from your local area State Coordinator. This process includes a detailed phone interview, a vet check, and a home visit. King is healthy, UTD on all vaccinations, heart worm negative, (on preventative), and micro chipped. His adoption fee will be $350 to offset his vetting and to allow NBRAN to rescue more of these wonderful family members. Transportation is an option, so let's talk about it.

      Posted Breed: Brittany / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Hi everyone! My name is Baby Girl! I'm about 5 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 this 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'm housebroken and trustworthy in the house. I'm spayed and up to date on all my vaccinations. I just finished HW treatment and will need to be tested again in a few months. 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.

      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.

      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.
