Meet Brittni! She and her sister, Steffani, were surrendered to ACS by a young man who had adopted their mother not knowing the dog was pregnant at the time. On Christmas day, his new furry family member presented him with five little babies. The young man was able to find homes for three of the pups and asked if we could take in Brittni and Steffani and find them homes. He told us that the momma dog was around 25-30 lbs and looked like a small Lab but the breed make-up of the daddy is a mystery. Judging from Brittni's coloring and her jowly face, our best guess would be that dad was some type of Hound - maybe a Black and Tan Coonhound. Brittni is a great little pup and is very sweet and loving. Her former owner told us she was great with children but keep in mind that, as a young puppy, Brittni is still (and will be for several more months) in the chewing/biting/scratching stage. Although she doesn't mean any intentional harm, her needle-sharp teeth and razor-sharp nails can still inflict painful wounds. Growing up with a dog should be an enjoyable experience for a child so it is important that the age of the dog and the age of the child are compatible. Brittni would do great with a family whose children are old enough to be dog-savvy and know how to deal with a rambunctious puppy with a lot to learn. A fenced yard is also a must for little Brittni as we suspect that nose of hers will get her into a lot of trouble if she's not safely contained when outside. If you would like to give Brittni a loving and committed forever home and have the experience, time and patience for a pup, then just stop by the shelter and ask to meet her.
