I have been passionate about Brittanys since I first owned my 5 year old Brittany named Freckles. Freckles was a purebred puppy that was sold to someone who later realized that they could not properly care for her. Long story short: I adopted her just before she became desperately ill with Parvo and intestinal parasites. I paid for her treatments, vaccines, spay, etc and she was able to find a "forever home" in my heart. Freckles is such a wonderful dog with such an amazing personality and she reminds me everyday how special Brittanys are.
This past summer I moved into my first place and thought that it would be nice for Freckles to have some company at home while I was working or at school during the day, It was just a simple thought- I hadn't been actively searching for another dog, but out of the blue this wonderful, handsome, and very sweet doggie ended up at the vet clinic where I worked. His name was Remy and he was an owner surrender to be examined so that he could be sent to a rescue. I immediately fell in love and planned to take him home the next day. He tested positive for heartworms, had a heavy intestinal parasite load, and needed to be neutered. I took him home got his treatments underway and he has become a wonderful part of my family.
Knowing how much I love Brittanys and their personalities I knew that I wanted to have Remy tested. He showed many physical traits of a Brittany or a Springer but something wasn't quite all there. His personality and protective tendencies made me question whether he was even mixed with a Brittany at all.
I was very happy and enlightened to find that his results were:
- Level 2: Brittany
- Level 4: Springer
- Level 4: Doberman
