Meet Brittle B., an Up for Stardom contest winner. This sweet Pit Bull/American Bulldog mix came into her owner Stephanie’s life when she worked at a local shelter several years ago. “At eight months old Brittle was kept tied outside and was signed over to the shelter nameless after she growled at a child who was pestering her,” said Stephanie. “I knew she was a special little dog, so just like that, I decided to add her to my growing pack!” The first few months weren’t easy as Stephanie struggled to work through Brittle’s stubbornness; however, they quickly became best friends and remain even closer seven years later.
Brittle gets festive with one of her dozens of Up Country collars.
Today, Brittle enjoys lounging by Stephanie’s side, whether she is sewing, working on her computer, or just lounging. She loves to keep herself occupied by chewing on bones, destroying her toys, and playing tug of war with her four other canine siblings. When Brittle isn't lounging around the house, she is partying it up with Stephanie at work. “I work at a local dog daycare, and she comes with me every day to spend time with her puppy friends. She also LOVES to go shopping at all the local pet shops and is quite popular among all the workers.” Whatever Stephanie is doing, you can find Brittle right by her side. “She is my sidekick, my co-pilot, and my best friend.”
Brittle and her “pack”.
Brittle can be spotted around town in her Up Country gear, specifically in her favorite Bee collar. “We first discovered Up Country when I started working at Camp Bow Wow, and one of our pup customers always wore an Up Country collar. When I found a store that carried Up Country collars, I decided I would just get her one special collar. I chose Up Country's Scoop collar, but when the holidays came along, I knew she needed a Christmas design. Now, five years later, we have over 34 in our growing collection! I haven't found a collar company that beats Up Country, each of my dogs has certain collars they look best in.”
Brittle not only enjoys being the perfect spokes-dog for Up Country, but she is also an excellent ambassador for bully breeds, as she exemplifies what great traits they can have. She's sweet, social, loyal, and well behaved, leaving the people she meets with a positive impression. “Everyone who meets Brittle falls in love, what can I say, she's a pretty wonderful little dog!”
Brittle gets dressed up for Trick or Treating, too!
