My name is Albert and I am told I am the sweetest, precious boy ever.  I am 8.5 years old, 51 pounds, One handsome orange & white hunk of a boy.  UTD on vaccines, HW Neg, neutered, housebroken and crate trained.   

I am looking for my forever home whom will give me love, attention, walks, rawhides and make me their very special boy.  I am on Proin, my only problem is I do leak a little at night, so I do need to sleep in my crate with a “winky wrap”.  If you limit my bedtime water and put my “winky wrap” on, this will keep my bed dry. (Some nights better than others.)  I am deaf, but I don’t consider that a problem as I respond to hand signals. 

I do love to get into the Kiddy pool and wade in it.  I love my ears rubbed, so I will moan and groan for you.  Even thou I am deaf, when my siblings howl due to a fire truck, I look at them and join in, my Foster Mom thinks I am just adorable.  If I discover I am outside alone, I will let you know I want to be in the house with you. If you would love a precious boy like me, please put in an adoption application in for me, my Foster Mom would love to tell you my stories.

From Foster Mom:  Albert doesn’t like to get in the car, but once he is in the car, he loves it.  Walks well on leash, does not pull badly. Does his business outside, except for leaking at night.  Responds well to hand signals nicely.  Loves people & other dogs.  Good with cats.  Lives for affection.  Not picky about food & takes pills easily.  Doesn’t guard food, treats or people.  Not a barker.  Very sweet, adorable boy.

Medical Notes:  I do have some grand mal seizures and I am deaf, but know hand signals. My last seizure was June 11th and 6 weeks before that.  I am not on medicine, because they are too far apart and would not be good for me.  Please discuss with Foster Mom as I want you to love me forever. On Proin to help with leakage.

If you are interested in adopting me, please visit www.NBRAN.org to complete an adoption application.

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)
