Brittany Rescue in Texas, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization comprised of individuals who share a deep love of Brittanys. Its primary purpose is to identify and rescue stray, abandoned, surrendered, or impounded Brittanys and provide for their medical, physical and emotional needs until they are adopted. The secondary purpose of the organization is to provide breed education and support to help adopted Brittanys be cared for most effectively.
The Brittany was originally bred as a hunting dog. Although it is often referred to as a Spaniel, the breed’s working characteristics are more akin to those of a pointer or setter.
Brittanys are happy, sweet natured, easy to train dogs, neither mean nor shy. They are intelligent, active, alert, and require regular companionship and exercise. They are medium-sized, athletic dogs, with long legs and docked or normally short tails. Their colors vary and include orange and white, brown and white, black and white, or tri-color. They’re rugged and strong—the word “muscular” occurs more than once in the breed standard—but smooth, clean, and quick afoot. The face has the “softness” prized by bird-dog lovers; high-set ears convey the breed’s essential eagerness.
