Keep your Backyard a Safe Haven for Your Brittanys

Keep your Backyard a Safe Haven for Your Brittanys

Spring has sprung in Texas … happy news for your Brittanys, who will be spending more time sniffing and romping and rolling in the great outdoors. While longer days and warmer days make us happy, they can bring some risks to our Brittanys. Every seasonal change can bring dangers, but the Spring season presents some specific risks that can be easily addressed as long as we Brittany owners know what to look for. Spring Time Dangers for French & American Brittanys Fire Ants Be aware of fire ants AND what you use to kill them (both can be harmful to your Brittany). Fire ant bites can be a big problem for dogs. According to a recent survey completed by veterinarians,...

Watch for rattlesnakes lurking in Bluebonnets

Watch for rattlesnakes lurking in Bluebonnets

Bluebonnet season is upon us, the time of year the entire state looks like a Blue Bell Ice Cream commercial. The annual bluebonnet bloom is definitely a sight to behold and you may be tempted to take your family out for photos but beware because the warm weather also brings poisonous snakes out of hibernation.  They are most likely to appear at dawn and dusk. If you or your Brittany see a snake…back away! If anyone is bitten go to an ER immediately.  There are four kinds of venomous snakes in Texas: coral snakes, copperheads, cottonmouths (water moccasins) and rattlesnakes.

Sharing the (Blind) Love

Sharing the (Blind) Love

Nearly seven years ago, we adopted a sweet, shy Brittany named “Bailey.” BRIT told us that she was a great fit for our family but would probably have to be the only dog. We were okay with that because Bailey provides us with an abundance of love, fun, and excitement. Bailey is best known for keeping our “critter” population to a minimum, spending more time in the pool than we do, and loving long walks (only to come home and run out in the back to jump in the pool). She is also great at telling time and letting us know if we are late in serving her meals.  As we socialized Bailey throughout the years, it became evident that she could get along with other dogs. So, with...

2016 Year End Update from BRIT

2016 Year End Update from BRIT

Dear fellow Brittany lover, It’s heartbreaking to find Brittanys who no longer have a home, a place where there’s always shelter, food, love, attention, special treats, playtime … where they are treasured members of the family. We believe all Brittanys deserve a chance to have a loving forever home. In addition to rescuing healthy Brittanys, we’ve pledged to save ALL Brittanys including the elderly, abused, abandoned, pregnant, and those facing euthanasia due to severe injuries. (See examples on back.) Some believe these severe cases are not worth spending the money to save them. We disagree. If you feel the same way and believe these sweet playful companions deserve a...
