MICA, 4.5 yrs old - Due to our advanced age we feel feel the need has come to rehome our BC girl Mica, spayed, active in Flyball sport  and other BC activities. She can be an indoor /outdoor dog. Kenneled here since we live in the woods. Not used to children or cats. We are hoping to find active adults knowledgeable with BCs. If interested we would like to communicate over the phone , e-mail or meeting personally to discuss Mica qualities, etc.

THATCHER: 2 yo BC Spaniel mix
Fans! Just look at me! I am 2 years old and very, very smart - think border collie in a 28 pound spaniel body. I am also SUPER interested in training and I show great aptitude for listening, learning, and working very hard.

I am looking for a human/s who will:  take me to sports training - agility, disk, nosework, barn hunt; take me on long walks / runs every day; dream up new puzzles and challenges; laugh with me, and use positive reinforcement to redirect me when I need it

I’ve seen cats, but I am not sure if I like them. I like friendly, older children, especially those who will play with me, but I will probably unintentionally knock little ones over. So far, I like everyone I have met on our walks and get along well with other dogs. I also like car rides, and resting in my crate. I am usually very busy, but I do enjoy a nice cuddle.

I know lots of commands already - sit, lie down, stay, wait, leave it, touch. I hope you will teach me a lot more

If you're interested in this sweet and intelligent boy, please contact New England Brittany Rescue at and fill out the online application.

THEO is perfect for someone with an active lifestyle who adores the great outdoors and a commitment to their loving pup! He is an extremely smart 8 year old boy who would prefer to meet his potential adopter a few times before going home. Theo is an affectionate boy, but on his own terms. Theo is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations.

For more information on Theo, please reach out to

Please be aware that you need to check people out before handing over your dog to someone you do not know. There are unscrupulous people who appear to be good adopters so be cautious and check references, especially asking for a neighbor's phone number so you can be sure that the information about them is accurate. We recommend a TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP agreement so that you can have some written agreement about your dog's future situation in the event it does not work out for the person to keep the dog. It is important to insure that your dog does not eventually land in a shelter where he or she could be euthanized. Instead, the person agrees in writing to notify you so that you can then step in and take an appropriate course of action.
