Looking for a new bird dog and a great family pet?
Pollitt Farms is located in South Central Iowa and we home raise 1-2 litters of AKC registered Brittany Spaniel Puppies per year.
We are not mass breeders!
Our puppies are raised indoors, we bathe them regularly and play with them every day. This means when your brittany puppy goes home with you, they are highly social, love to play fetch, like taking bathes, and are usually partially potty trained.
All puppies leave our care with tail docked, dew claws removed, vaccinations and wormings current. As placement time nears, we match puppy personalities with the specific characteristics that each family is looking for. We like to keep in touch with our puppy families and are happy to announce that all of our brittany puppies have been placed in loving homes all over the United States.

12/01/2014/ - NEW PICTURES HAVE BEEN POSTED! :)
11/30/2014 - Well the puppies are getting big. I'm taking pictures today so everyone can see...should be up on their pages this evening or tomorrow.
They went outside for the first time yesterday and weren't quite sure about it at first but then they started exploring a bit before they got a litte cold and tired. They had their first shot last Wednesday and they will be wormed for the first time this coming Wednesday. Hard to believe they will be 5 weeks old on December 3.

Sophie has delivered 4 puppies...
10/29/2014: Sophie started having puppies about 2:00 pm on Wednesday afternoon...on my birthday! She had 4 really big puppies, 3 liver & white girls and 1 orange & white boy. One of the little girls is naturally docked! She has no tail, just like mama. :)
11/01/2014: The babies dew claws have been removed and tails docked.
11/11/2014: The little ones are extremely active! Since there are only 4, we've been keeping them upstairs until they get their eyes open. It's so cute...they make a lot of noices, they make the cutest little barks. LOL
AND - They look like they are already half grown. We expect their eyes to start opening very soon.
We are currently taking deposits for Sophie's late Fall 2015 litter.
Don't wait to make your deposit, remember all puppies are selected in order of deposit date/time.
I've been dreading this for a while.....it is with deep sorry that I need to announce the passing of our sweet Sandi. She died quite unexpectedly on September 17, 2014 of pyometra, which is a uterine infection. Apparantly, there aren't many signs or symptoms until it's too late...which is what happened to us. She was fine on Monday, on Tuesday she acted like she ate something that didn't agree with her. When she didn't get better, I scoopedher up and took her to the vet on Wednesday morning 8AM and she was gone by noon.
The important thing to know is that it can happen in any female dog that has not been spayed. If you dog has recently completed a heat cycle and has a foul or unusual odor that doesnt' (go away after a few minutes), bloating or a lot of vaginal discharge (which may or may not happen depending on wheather the cervix is open or closed. I would suggest having her checked. In retrospect, that is maybe the only sign/symptom that we maybe missed because we just didn't know. The late when it may already be too late symptoms are extreme listlessness, unquenchable thirst and vomitting.
What is Pymetra?
Pyometra is defined as an infection in the uterus. Pyometra is considered a serious and life threatening condition that must be treated quickly and aggressively. Pyometra is a secondary infection that occurs as a result of hormonal changes in the female's reproductive tract. During estrus ("heat"), white blood cells, which normally protect against infection, are inhibited from entering the uterus. This allows sperm to safely enter the female's reproductive tract without being damaged or destroyed by these immune system cells. Following estrus ("heat") in the dog, progesterone hormone levels remain elevated up to two months and cause thickening of the lining of the uterus in preparation for pregnancy and fetal development. If pregnancy does not occur for several consecutive estrus cycles, the uterine lining continues to increase in thickness until cysts often form within the tissues (a condition called Cystic Endometrial Hyperplasia). The thickened, cystic lining secretes fluids that create an ideal environment for bacteria to grow in. Additionally, high progesterone levels inhibit the ability of the muscles in the wall of the uterus to contract and expel accumulated fluids or bacteria. The combination of these factors often leads to infection.
Pyometra may occur in any sexually intact young to middle-aged dog; however, it is most common in older dogs.
