PoundWishes - Heart Worm, malnutrition and mange treatment for Chase And Ryder

Ready to help Brittany Chase and Ryder? Act Now!

Chase and Ryder are 1 year old Brittanys who were strays spotted running loose by a coon club in Illinois. Animal Control tried to catch them for some time, but these skittish boys had been left to fend for themselves and were not very trusting of humans. Finally they were caught in humane traps and taken into care by the National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network. Both of these sweet boys are severely malnourished and are ravaged by mange. Though we don't know their story it is obvious they have been neglected for some time.....their skeletal bodies are covered in scabs. But true to their Brittany nature they are loving and sweet and seek out affection. Sadly, Ryder has tested positive for heart worms and will require long and expensive treatment. Chase is negative at this time but will need to be retested. Both boys will need to be neutered and vaccinated but the focus now is getting them to a healthy weight so they can sustain surgery and treatment for their horrible skin issues. NBRAN is facing HUGE medical bills for these boys so any contribution is greatly appreciated!

Update: This weekend they made the long trek from IL to their foster home in FL. Foster mom reports that they very sweet despite having been so neglected for such a long time. They are scheduled to be neutered next week if they pass their health exams. Their skin is much better and they enjoy their mange must be SUCH a relief for them! They are just 2 sweet boys who are well behaved in their crates and enjoy being loved on. We know they are in great hands but they still have a ways to go before they can be adopted.

PoundWishes Giving A Second Chance

Posted on September 18, 2016 Chase and Ryder have made it to the Sunshine State of Florida and to their new Foster Home. They will spend the next few months eating plenty of food to fatten them up while resting and receiving the medical care needed to set them in good order to search for their Forever Homes.

We are also over the moon happy to announce that NBRAN has reached the fundraising goals for Chase and Ryder on our @PoundWishes campaign, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop. Even though the funds raised will cover most of their large medical bills, we know there will be ancillary expenses along the way, particularly treating Ryder’s Heartworm.
For NBRAN, every dollar makes a difference. We challenge you to skip that $5 Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks and donate just $3 to Chase and Ryder. You save and the Brittanys get saved!

NBRAN Has TWO Adoption Programs
Just for Our Senior Dogs

The NBRAN Seniors to Seniors Program is available for senior applicants   who are age 60 or older interested in adopting a senior Brittany- 9 years or older.  The State Coordinator who is responsible for the dog will discuss the adoption donation with you.

If you're not a senior, but are interested in a senior dog, we also have a program for you! Our ADOPT A SENIOR program goal is to find our senior dogs loving homes. Your state coordinator can give you all the details about our Adopt a Senior program. Senior Brittanys make loving companions- without all the crazy Brittany energy of younger dogs.

Seniors for Seniors
Senior Britts are the best!

Foster homes are our lifeline to saving dogs. We have opportunities for fostering in every state and Canadian Province. Fostering not only helps the dogs, but blesses the humans involved too. Knowing that you are helping a Brittany find a forever loving home is a great feeling! If you can foster please complete a volunteer application under the Help the Dogs button on our menu. If you prefer, call Susan Spaid at 814-771-6720 or e-mail at or Gaye Bricker at 330-673-2702 or e-mail at

The rest of the story...

Adopting a pet pays you back ten fold. If you are not able to adopt, volunteers are always needed to help transport or foster a pet. You may also choose to donate to this effort on our Donate Now page. All donations are tax deductible!

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.
