Ami – BRIT Super Hero

Ami – BRIT Super Hero

Earlier this year Ami from Arlington, TX contacted BRIT via our Facebook page to volunteer her services as a Foster Mom. She dove right in and in quick succession fostered Gambler and then Princess who were both quickly adopted. Ami discovered she loves fostering Brittanys and agreed to foster Pepper who came to us from an owner-surrender who couldn’t keep her because she wouldn’t hunt. The day BRIT picked up Pepper the owners told us she might just be a tiny bit pregnant. Nevertheless, Ami agreed to foster Pepper and watched her closely over the next few weeks. Sure enough Pepper was more than just a little bit preggers…she was carrying five precious Brittany puppies....

Maple’s Story: A Brittany Goes Blind

Maple’s Story: A Brittany Goes Blind

As told by Madison, a much loved BRIT Foster Mom. It was one night in December during our bedtime treat ritual that we first noticed something unusual.Maple, our five-year-old Brittany, usually caught the treats in her mouth when we called out her name and tossed them towards her. But tonight the treats sailed past her head and into the mouth of our other dog. At first we didn’t make much of this observation, writing it off to poor lighting or distractibility. But this was the first sign that things weren’t quite right with Maple’s eyes. Maple had a tough autumn. She had moved from Texas with her Mom to be with her Dad who lives and works in Tennessee. Maple underwent...

Rusty’s Story

Rusty’s Story (as told by Rusty) I first came to live with my forever owners (my “Mom” and “Dad”) in October 2010, when I was about 3 months old. Before I met them, Pattie picked me up from the Abilene shelter. From there we drove to Granbury, TX to see the vet. Later that day my future mom contacted BRIT about adopting a Brittany. She just happened to live in Abilene, so I guess it was just meant to be! It was a busy day for Pattie driving from Abilene to Granbury and back to Abilene meet my new mom – but she said I was worth it. So I came back to Abilene to live with my new forever family and I just fit right in. I was a little unruly at first since I was just a pup,...

Kara – Happily Ever After

Kara – Happily Ever After

When I was only 10 weeks old, I heard someone say I was going to be a “rescue puppy.” Not knowing exactly what that meant, I was scared at first. But, I quickly learned that “rescue” was not a bad thing. In fact, I was actually a very lucky little dog to have been rescued by my wonderful foster parents, Aunt Pattie and Uncle Jim. They took me into their loving arms and caring home and promised me that soon, I would have my very own forever home with someone to dearly love me for life! Thanks to the diligent efforts of Pattie and Jim, that promise was soon fulfilled. Now, two and a half years later, I find myself deeply rooted in my safe and loving home with my very own...
