My name is Bert and I am a handsome young man at 11 months, 40#, neutered, UTD on shots, HW- ,  orange/white Brit/Aussie. I am looking for a home that will let me have lots of squeakies, balls and chew toys. I love to play in water, cuddle and snuggle. I do not destroy things and I am told I am very smart and a very good boy. I will make you a wonderful companion and be your forever buddy.

From Foster Mom:

Mr. Bert!  A sweet boy with much energy.  He has been a delight in our home for his visit as a Foster Child.  An exuberant pup with mega personality, he and our Lizzy are great pals, he does well with the resident cat Trixie (they ignore each other), however he is very curious of the outside kittens, he wants so badly to sniff them and learn their story (they are not having it.)  He is house trained and a wonderful passenger in the truck, loves to go for rides.  We have been working on leash training and he knows his new name and the command COME!  He is very intelligent and willing to learn, I am sure he will make someone a wonderful companion.  I grew up around bird dogs and he does show some of their natural traits already, he also has some herding abilities (he herds us and our bulldog every chance he gets). 

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 Bert in Texas is $350 to offset his 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.

 

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)
