My name is Penny. I am a very lovable girl puppy.  I am a sweet, energetic puppy that is about four months old. I do well on a leash and I am very calm going into the crate and a very good girl in my crate.  I am still working on my potty training and my foster family thinks I am on the right track. I still slip up when I get so excited but I am still a puppy, remember?

I obey the commands “Sit” and “No” currently but will only oblige my foster parents long enough for them to get food in my bowl for dinner. I heard mommy telling daddy I was getting better and that was a cool attagirl for me. I LOVE dog toys and will play with them for hours. I am dog, cat, and kid friendly. I do have to be reprimanded for chasing a cat every now and then, but only if they run, then I think they want to play chase, but I won’t hurt them. I don’t want to eat them, they just are the cutest little puppy cats I have ever seen and to be fair, mom has five of them. I can only assume they are my playmates too.

I enjoy running in the back yard and occasionally steal water from the bird bath. I am learning to fetch however I often forget to bring it back. I see it as giving my foster family the exercise they need and also they seem to be great fetchers. I strive to be that awesome one day.

I am spayed, UTD on shots, HW-  .If you would love an adorable pup, I am your girl.

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 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)
