Posted Breed: Brittany / Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Buster was turned into a Missouri shelter because his family could no longer care for him. The shelter contacted NBRAN to see if we could help him. Our wonderful team of volunteers gassed up their cars and drove Buster to Phoenix to start his new life. After arriving in Arizona, Buster was successfully treated for Heartworm. He is now heartworm free. He also has been treated for Valley Fever. This sweet boy deserves a loving home. Buster is very active for a 10 year old and loves looking for birds in the back yard. He is crate trained, house broken and good with other dogs. If you would like more information about Buster, please fill out an application at http://www.nbran.org/adoptappl.asp and then contact Robin Smith at britrescueaz@cox.net Buster's adoption fee is $175. Any person aged 60 years or older may adopt for $100.

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). 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: Brittany (medium coat). Hi, I'm Cooper! Here is his latest update- Happy Holidays, Everyone!!! Cooper here again... just wanted to pass you an update. Apparently, because I'm such a good boy I'm getting TONS of cool presents for Christmas - and hopefully my forever family! I spent Christmas in Kansas with my Foster Mom's family and their 2 little boys 4 and 6. They loved me and I loved them! My Foster Mom was so happy about that, I even let the little one kiss and hug all the time. Since we last chatted I have made some superduper progress! I now know to only go potty outside, that mom's socks are NOT for chewing, that I shouldn't jump on the door, and I have to be nice to the kitties. I even figured out how to play nice with the girls and they let me in their club! We have a blast! I'm am SO loving snuggling by the fire - I don't like the cold weather! I fell asleep on mom the other day and she says I was snoring! And, the best news of all - the doctor said I can eat whatever I want so long as I take one pill per day. I'm so excited to know I'm gonna have a nice long life with my forever family. Yay!!!! Any questions email Leslie at leslie@leslietrentadesigns.com Thank you Don't you wanna be my friend?! Everybody wants to be my friend! At least that's what I think, so I make sure to greet you with lots of hugs and kisses. Foster mom says I shouldn't, and I'm working on that, but I'm just SO excited to have FRIENDS! I'm not as excited about my foster sisters, the pup or kitty kind, but I tolerate them and sometimes I like to play, too. I just really prefer to be with my human. I LOVE laying on the couch and especially the bed. Wiggling around on my back feels amazing - see, I have a slight injury on my back that makes my nerves really sensitive, so it just feels awesome to roll around for a minute. Sometimes I have a hard time getting up on the bed, especially in the morning...the doctor says that's because I have a little bit of arthritis in my hips. I'm an old guy, what can I say? Besides my back and hips, I do have some slight issues with my kidneys and some allergies, but my foster family takes good care of me so it doesn't bother me much anymore. Mom always makes sure I have lots of water and I get special food from the doctor, and two happy pills every day! (I think Mom is lying...I know one is for my kidneys and the other for my itchies...) The doctor says that with this routine I'm gonna be a healthy boy for a long time - yippee! I'm super happy about that because, for the first time that I can remember, I've been able to start really living life! I get car rides, we go get ice cream together, I get to go on walks in the woods! This one time, I almost pulled mom over...so now we walk around the driveway and stop a lot. I'm really getting the hang of it - the treats sure help! When we're not doing that, I get to hang out in the backyard. It's a shame I can't get out off it - I'd really love to go on an adventure by myself! But for now I'll just stay back there - I have to keep the family safe. I make sure I bark at everything that I even THINK may be bad. When I'm done outside and want to go inside, I just jump up on the door an open it myself...sweet, right? I thought so, but not mom! Now she makes me sit at the door and wait...how boring! Anyhow, once I'm inside I usually just hang out with mom or take a nap on the couch. I wish I could sleep with her too, but she says I have to be in my crate at night. I do NOT like going in that thing, but I know the rules...go to sleep, so that's what I do. I don't mind it at all during the day, though! So long as you come home and let me out and give me lots of love, I'll be a happy guy forever! Thanks for reading, friend! A note from Cooper's foster Mama! Meet Cooper! This sweet charmer is nothing but love! He's a bit of an older gent - around 9 or 10 - but you would never know it! He's a super smart guy - probably too smart sometimes - and he's a bit defiant, so he'll definitely need a strong Alpha to lead him. He will also need a home and fence that is secure - his smarts get him out, but not back in - and he is a bolter with no recall. We are currently working on his house and door manners, which he has made significant progress in (he knows how to open doors with lever handles...)! He gets along fine with dogs and cats though he's VERY curious about cats and may scare them initially. His play style can be somewhat aggressive - with cats and dogs - which lands him in a little bit of trouble sometimes. If he's with another animal he would need to be supervised until they have established their boundaries. He's quite the leash puller but is working really hard (and doing well) on his leash training. However, once he's locked on to something, he's on. Obedience training with Mr. Cooper will be essential. Because of his background, ( he was part of the Indiana 11) Cooper really never learned proper house skills, including potty skills. He's pretty good now, but he does still occasionally mark. He also has a love affair with some pieces of clothing - mostly socks, but sometimes other things like sweaters - that he enjoys shredding, and he's quick as lightning. Mr. Cooper, unfortunately, also seems to have experienced some abuse in his past. He will cower if you raise your hand; however, he responds very well to a stern voice followed by love/positive reinforcement. That's the key to this guy - love, love and more love. And some patience :) If you have those things, he will give you that love back ten-fold. And lots of laughs! Cooper is on a prescription KD diet and one medication per day for his kidneys, which he will require for the rest of his days. He seems to have a slight food or seasonal allergy that causes him to be a little itchy sometimes that cannot be overcome by switching foods. Benadryl really helps to control the itch, so he gets that as needed. He does require a lot of water, which means more potty breaks; though while he's in his crate he's a good boy - no accidents at all. He will require continued vet monitoring of his kidneys for the rest of his life. Overall, Cooper is a GREAT guy! He is so snuggly - I'm pretty sure he would crawl inside of you to get closer if he could. He is a little challenging at times, but that's part of what makes him so special. Even in correcting his behavior, all he needs is love - how sweet is that?! Cooper’s adoption is being handled through National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network. The adoption fee is $200.00. Please go to nbran.org and fill out the adoption application. The Coordinator for Virginia is Leslie Trenta and she will be handling all inquiries and applications for Cooper. Leslie can be reached @ leslie@leslietrentadesigns.com If you are interested in Cooper, please go to nbran.org and complete an online application. The Coordinator in your state will contact you to explain the process. NBRAN will require a home visit and vet check. Cooper can use NBRAN's weekend team of volunteers called the Canine Railroad to get to his new home up to 1200 miles

      Location: Curwensville, PA
      Posted Breed: Brittany / Great Pyrenees / Mixed (medium coat). Hello Everybody, my name is Samantha. I did not have a name when I got here and was starved. I have been with my fosters parents for about 4 weeks. The vet thinks I am about 1-year-old. UTD on Vaccines, HW-. My delicate weight is 65 lbs and I will probably reach around 75 lbs. Today I am so proud of myself. I learned I can jump a 5-foot fence! So I must need a high fence to keep me safe and I love having a yard to play in. I am a Brittany/Pyrenees, a wonderful mix the vet says. I must have another fun and loving dog to play with. My Foster Mom and Dad spy on me when I am outside to make sure I am being a good girl. I love to play tug & play with any dogs. I also like cats. If they want to play, I can play with cats too. I am a big strong puppy. I didn’t know anything when they saved me. I had to learn to walk on a leash (I still mess up sometimes). I potty outside, so they tell me I am housetrained. I do come when I am called. Since I am a puppy, I do need to go to school to learn some training, but it will be well worth is since I am such a darling sweet pup. I love water and would love to have a kiddie pool to play in. I am looking for a family with another dog that wants to play all the time, I think I like kids, but sometimes I forget they are small and I knock them down. I love to sit next to you or on you and cuddle. I am a real lover. I don’t bite, I love tug a war with another dog. I also like to bark when I am playing. I am so happy when I am playing. If you would be willing to work with me, I would love to be your puppy. If you are interested in adopting me, please visit www.NBRAN.org to complete an adoption application. Contact Nancy Walker nwalker@capecod.net and/or Melinde Waddle macgammy@gmail.com . for more information after you have filled out the application. The fee to adopt Samantha in Texas is $325 to offset her vetting and to allow NBRAN to rescue more of these wonderful pets. Transportation can be arranged up 1400 miles with the adopter being responsible for the last 100 miles.

      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

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.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Curwensville, PA
      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.
