Molly is a ten year old liver and white Brittany that was recently displaced from her home. Owned by an elderly couple, the husband passed away in 2011. In 2012, the wife was moved into an assisted care facility and Molly was sent to live with the couple’s son, but was kept in a crate in the basement or garage, only let outside to potty or spend a little time on a fenced deck. She has very little muscle on her long skinny legs.
Molly has chronic Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) that has required her to be on large doses of prednisone for several years. Due to the IBS and the toll it has taken on Molly’s GI system, she developed a secondary medical issue that prevents her from being able to digest fat. She now must eat a special diet and takes three different medications to keep her symptoms under control. Molly requires weekly injections of Vitamin B12 and has her blood tested to monitor her liver and kidney function on a regular basis. She is always hungry, but is never satisfied after being fed. Her body doesn’t recognize the food which passes through her nearly unabsorbed. In the past two years she has gone from 42 pounds to 27 pounds, and every rib and vertebra is visible.
Despite her illness, Molly is bright and alert, and seeks attention. She loves to surround herself with stuffed toys – her babies. Though she drinks massive amounts of water, a result of her medication, she is very careful to ask to go outside so as not to have any accidents in the house. Molly enjoys being in her crate and prefers to eat dinner there, to be sure no one takes even a single kibble from her. She can be possessive of her food, and is best isolated during mealtime, but otherwise gets along with other dogs fairly well as long as they understand that she is the Queen.
Molly’s food and veterinary bills are high, and she needs an understanding home with the resources to get her the continuing treatment that she requires. If you are interested in adopting Molly please visit http://NBRAN.org to fill out an application before contacting Gaye at BeauBritt2@aol.com. Due to special circumstances Molly's adoption fee will be negotiable. Transport can be arranged for up to 1400 miles. While in rescue with NBRAN, we hope that donations through her Guardian Angel fund will help to defray her expenses. If you can help Molly with a donation please click on the Guardian Angel below.

Rescue Group Info...
National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network (NBRAN), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is a network of caring and dedicated volunteers who have a deep passion for dog rescue and specifically the homeless Brittany, affectionately called a "Britt."
Once called "the Brittany Spaniel," the AKC has officially changed their breed name to "the American Brittany." A Brittany retains a puppy-like quality in their personality and are gentle, clownish, active dogs. They are great family dogs.
The number of dogs available for adoption varies from month to month. .
Each adopter must complete an application on our website at www.nbran.org. A volunteer will contact you and work with you to find the perfect fit for your family and the brittany. A homevisit is required, as this is the only way we can be sure the right dog is being placed with you. Once the right brittany has been found, we will help transport him we only ask the adopting family to drive the last leg if it is a long distance adoption.
