Hi there California, Hunter here. I am a 3 and 1/2 year old French Brittany who had a hard life before coming into rescue. I came from a breeder/hoarding situation where there was a lot of neglect. I was in rough shape when rescued and I had to stay in a shelter with the other dogs seized from the kennel while the legal case involving the seizure proceeded.
Because my entire life was spent in a kennel with little to no human contact, I am starved for human attention. Indeed, I am a total cuddle bear who has bonded with my foster mom and my favorite thing is to be with her. My foster mom, who has other Brittanys, says I would do best with a passive companion dog in the household, since, try as I might, a lot of animals make me really nervous. I do love playing with my foster brother. I also need to be in a home without children (including a home with visiting grandchildren) because children frighten me. I would be best in an adult household that is quiet with a regular routine - that includes lots of daily exercise for me, of course.
My foster mom has been leash-training me but I can still be leash reactive if other dogs get near me so I will need more training on the leash with a harness. My foster mom says I am very smart and I'm definitely doing better on the leash but I need more work and anyone who wants to adopt me should be committed to more training. I am a good boy and just need someone to love me and continue with my training. You can call me a late bloomer with bushels of potential. I am very handsome and do want to please. Since my childhood was not good, I will need to be adopted by a very dog-saavy person or couple who is very patient and has extensive experience with Brittanys.
I am house-trained, know my basic commands, and love to sleep in bed. I am neutered, heartworm negative, current on all vaccines, and microchipped.
I will need a secure 6 ft. fence at my new home so I can safely explore and run zoomies. My adoption fee is $375.00, which helps to cover my medical bills and medical bills for other Brittanys in NBRAN. If interested in making me a member of your family, contact Lisa Vernon at 916-296-5195 or at email@example.com,
