I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Sweet 8 yr. old would love a family with children involved!
Leia (think star wars....her pal is luke) is one of a pair of dogs saved from craigslist. When we got Leia and Luke they were in outside kennels and extremely emaciated. Neither one had much energy, but they both hugged our legs begging for a new life. And that is exactly what we gave them. Leia was quickly seen by the vet and diagnosed with congestive heart failure. She was put on Lasix, enalapril and vetmedin. Within 3 weeks she stabilzed and became the happy active Leia we know and love today. Leia would LOVE A HOME WITH CHILDREN and another calmer dog to pal around with. She is excellent with kids, dogs and cats. Leia's favorite activity is to be on your lap being hugged and petted.
Leia is about 8 years old, UTD, spayed and microchipped and weighs 36 lbs. Because of the breed's busy nose and love to chase, Leia will need a fenced yard to keep her safe. If you think you can give Leia the loving home with family she so longs for, please visit http://NBRAN.org to fill out an adoption application before contacting Gaye at BeauBritt2@aol.com. Due to special circumstances Leia's adoption fee will be negotiable. Transport can be arranged for Leia for up to 1500 miles with her new family being responsible for the last 100 miles.

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.
