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.

About National Brittany Rescue Adoption Network - NBRAN

About Our Rescue Group...

In 2010 NBRAN rescued 618 Brittanys. These dogs are housed in foster homes, we do not have a shelter The foster home assesses the dog's personality and see to its medical needs. Once a dog is placed in a foster home, we can provide accurate information to adopters about the dog's habits and disposition. Often, a foster home will housebreak and train a Brittany to prepare it for adoption. Foster homes feed and house the dog as volunteers, and do not get paid for this service. To be a foster parent, you must be prepared to handle dogs might have some problems, usually solvable through some minimal training. Each dog that enters a foster home has a unique and different personality, and will bring with it challenges for the foster home....these challenges are often positive and help teach the foster homes about dog behavior and training strategies.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

NBRAN is comprised solely of unsalaried volunteers. All donations go toward the care and treatment of Brittanys in rescue throughout our organization's various programs and, since we are a 501(3)(c), donations are tax deductible. These dogs require good nourishing food, routine veterinary care and at times, more specialized medical treatment. They must all be kept on heartworm prevention and parasite control year round and also need supplies such as collars, leashes, I.D. tags, bowls, crates, bedding, and toys. In some cases, even to save the life of a healthy dog, we must have them boarded at a commercial facility for a brief period. Let's face it, adoption fees don't always cover the cost of a dog's medical care -- and that's why your help and partnership in rescue is so important! You can donate online at www.nbran.org or through the mail to: National Brittany Rescue Adoption Network 9801 Presidential Drive, Apt 203 Allison Park, PA 15101

Our Adoption Process...

Volunteers of National Brittany Rescue & Adoption Network are dedicated to this breed. We ask many questions of prospective adopters because we want the rescued dogs to find a home that's just the right match. Many of them have left a less-than-desirable place and we want their next home to be theirs for the rest of their lives. Please be sure to educate yourself before choosing a dog of any breed.
Our Brittanys have been rescued or surrendered and have been through stress of change and loss of owners. We are looking only for owners that are committed to being “forever” homes. This means being part of your family in all aspects. Additionally, all “forever” homes must commit to the following medical care provisions:

1.Annual vet visits
2.Heartworm Prevention
3.Vaccinations as prescribed by your local vet
4.Register/Maintain Microchip information (if pet is microchipped)
