Share Your Story
The ABR printed newsletter Brittany Tales: For the Love of Brittanys wants your story. Our new masthead says it all and we have twelve pages for more stories! Did you rescue, transport, foster or adopt a dog from difficult circumstances? We often learn the first part of a dog's journey. Help us tell the rest of the story.

We would also like to share images, stories and artwork created by young family members who are inspired by our awesome dogs.
Special Remembrance

ABR "foster fail" Ranger George was always smiling, even in his sleep. During his last months, he had congestive heart failure and wasn't able to walk more than a block if that. But he loved his walks and still wanted to go. His family bought a used baby stroller and he loved it! He would sit as though he was on a throne surveying his kingdom. His nose would be going a mile a minute as he took in all the smells he loved. It was wonderful to be able to continue his walks since he loved them so much. Ranger George is dearly missed by his family who said goodbye to him last year.
Call for Photos - 2018 American Brittany Rescue Calendar
If you enjoy this eNews Photo Album, you would LOVE our ABR Annual Calendar and YOUR Brittany could be famously featured if you submit a photo!

Here is a message for our calendar coordinator - Andrea: 

Remember, if you would like your photo(s) to be considered for a larger presence in the calendar, please make sure that the quality is good enough to enlarge - around 1MB at least. Also, please send the photo in a file and not imbedded in the email body. 

I am looking forward to another stellar year of showcasing our beautiful, and handsome Britts in our calendar.  If you can, please include the year that they were adopted.  Also, in celebration of all the work that we have done over the last 25 years, if you have some great photos of Britts you adopted who have left us too soon, please include as well with the adoption year.

Adopt a Brittany
By Melissa Tapply
These wonderful Brittanys are currently available for adoption.
Click on their name more information, and if you think your family is a good fit please   complete an adoption application here. 
Penny Lane (Oregon): Penny made her way to ABR because her little brother was very sick. Her family loved her very much and were heartbroken to have to say goodbye. Through it all Penny has managed to keep a smile on her face and a wiggle in her tail. She is 10 years young, a puppy in spirit with senior wisdom. She loves people, walks, and plying tug with her blanket!

  Tucker (Tennessee):  Handsome, cheerful, and fun all in one! 4-year-old Tucker loves his squeaky toys, going for long walks, taking car rides, and playing ball. He needs a family experienced with and understanding of the needs of a "high maintenance" dog, as he is headstrong and he suffers from separation anxiety. If you can help bring out the best in Tucker, he will make a truly wonderful family member!  

    Hank (Nebraska):  Meet Hank, a 5-year-old boy with a true zest for life! Hank has a condition affecting the chewing muscles of his jaw, but since going on medication he has been doing great. He LOVES being outside, car rides, and attention from his people!  
Freckles & Boone (W. Virginia):   Lovely lady Freckles and her kind and gentle brother Boone have been together for 10 years. Their age doesn't slow them down! They both come with the energy of a young dog. They are looking for a home where they can be together to run and chase squirrels in the yard and enjoy the affection of their people!  

Submitted by Mary Schuler, PA Volunteer: It was Healthy Pet Day, held on May 13th at Healthy Pet Products in Pittsburgh PA. Shown are volunteers Sadie (with Roscoe), Mary (with Annabelle), and Bill & Karen (with Brinkley).

Submitted by Melissa Tapply: Henry is enjoying his first summer of fishing with his new best friend and brother, Tyler.

I drove a 40 passenger bus full of secior citizens on a trip to the North Carolina Mountains.  My Brittany, Atticus, was my copilot for the entire trip.  He loved it and loved all the attention he received from the passengers.  He was a great traveler regardless of the vehicle.

Don't worry, he was buckled in through the bus seat belt and through an additional harness buckle. And their was no airbag on his side.  He was safe and sound! 
Submitted by Jenny & Mike Gessler: ABR Alumnus Remi, ready for some sun and adventure with his parents Mike & Jenny, and his new Brittany brother Riley! Photo below is also of Remi.

American Brittany Rescue, Inc. is an organization that was formed in 1991 as a cooperative effort of Brittany owners, breeders, trainers, and fanciers who ABR believes have a responsibility not only for their own dogs and the dogs they produce, but for the breed as a whole.


ABR's mission is to provide the leadership and expertise via a network of trained volunteers to take in stray, abandoned, surrendered and/or impounded purebred Brittanys, provide them with foster care, health and temperament screening, an opportunity for any necessary rehabilitation and to assure their health and placement into new homes. In order to fulfill this mission, ABR's volunteers remain flexible and adaptable to current and future business environments and they remain dedicated to the organization.
