The concept of Libertie Brittanys began with the arrival of my first Brittany in 1998. It was through my first Brittany, Libby, that I discovered my fervent interest in the dog world and my undying love for the Brittany breed. Thanks to her, I set foot into the show ring and have not stopped since. I have made some wonderful friends through my dogs and am grateful to all those who have guided me in my doggie endeavors. In February of 2006 I had my first litter. We are owner or breeder of show champions, a National best puppy, a National reserve, a group winner, sweepstakes winners, Best of Breed winners, JH titled and field placing dogs. Please note that all of the dogs listed do NOT live here; we co-own several dogs (Brittanys and Setters), but we only keep a few here at home at a time. Currently those would be Libby, Maestro, Shelby, Kelly and Mimosa. Welcome to Libertie Brittanys and feel free to browse all of my pages. Each dog's page includes a pedigree link. Be sure and check our NEWS (below) for updates! We are located in Kentucky. Member American Brittany Club, Cajun Country Brittany Club, Baton Rouge Kennel Club. Member/Volunteer National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network & American Brittany Rescue
