Lovable and happy youngster is looking for a fresh start with loving family to keep him active!

Rocky is a fun-loving two year old “All-American” dog finally ready to meet his forever family.  He had a very difficult start in life, just skin-and-bones when he was taken in by NBRAN, and needed a while to gain back his weight.  He’s developed into a proud and handsome pup, with a sweet disposition and a love for people, despite his past history of neglect. He is not a Brittany, but shares their enthusiasm for life.  NBRAN was made aware of his condition and offered to step up to his care after being turned into a clinic for severe malnutrition.  Rocky is tall and lean – about 20” at the shoulders, and is very athletic, and is about 40 lbs.of pure muscle now.  He might enjoy running or agility with his future mom or dad.  He has been in a foster home with seven other dogs and gets along great with all of them but can play a little rough – he wasn’t socialized with other dogs as a puppy well enough to read dog cues.  Rocky quickly backs off with just a word of human correction, but doesn’t quite understand when his playmate pups tell him game over.  Rocky has now learned what toys are and loves to play games with himself or better yet with friends. He would be a terrific companion to a medium to large breed dog like any of the Retrievers, Brittany, etc., but not recommended for homes with toy, miniature or smaller dogs due to his size and energy.  He has not met any cats but does enjoy a good game of chase with his dog buddies so cats might not be an ideal housemate.  Rocky is very fast will need a physical fence to keep him contained in his yard.  Rocky is healthy, up to date on his vaccinations, on heart worm prevention, and is microchipped and neutered.  

Rocky is ready for his new start in life, and will need someone with patience to work with him to continue his training.  If you are interested in giving Rocky the loving home he deserves, please submit follow the following link to submit an application:  https://www.nbran.org/adoptappl.asp.  After filling out an application you can contact Gaye Bricker at BeauBritt2@aol.com to further discuss your interest. Rocky’s adoption fee is $325.00 which help to offset his vetting expenses and allows NBRAN to help more of these wonderful pets.  Transport can be arranged for up to 1500 miles with Rocky’s new family willing to drive the last 100 miles of his journey. This happy boy has such a zest for life despite what he’s been through, how about giving him the new life he so much deserves?

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)
