I've Been Adopted!


Age: 6 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE - 10 May 2014: Emily is a very kind and affectionate beagle. She loves both other people and other dogs! She will play and wrestle with our other dogs until she gets tired and decides to either sun herself on our deck or sink herself into our sofa. But Emily likes human attention most of all and thrives on it. Both of us work full-time and we have not seen any separation anxiety with Emily. We surmise this is because she is content when she is with other dogs and not completely alone. We have never heard Emily growl even when our other dogs bug her. So we often say to one another “she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body”! Also Emily doesn’t bark much so if you are looking for a quiet dog, she is it. At least until she starts snoring that is. Emily is the snoring champ at our house but it’s a cute snore.  So overall, Emily is a very easy dog. She comes when called and keeps her crate clean. We are 99% sure Emily is house broken. Take a look at Emily when you get a chance. We think she would be great with any age child, dog, or adult.

5 APRIL 2014: Emily is a very affectionate, curious gal, who is looking for a new foster (or forever!) home. She was being fostered by a terrific family, but they discovered that she has separation anxiety. When left alone, (without other human or canine company)  she becomes very upset and unhappy.   This leads us to believe that Emily will need a foster home and, ultimately, a forever home that includes another dog (specifically one that doesn't mind sharing human affection - see below). Emily LOVES people and would likely also benefit from a household with at least one person home during most the day. 17

FEBRUARY 2014: Emily has a bubbly personality and loves being the center of attention being showered with pets and kisses.  She walks well on leash but insists on meeting everyone - human and dog.  She would do well having access to a dog park.  She can be an only dog or with another dog who is aloof as she tends to push her way into getting ALL the attention. She has a clue about house training and a good schedule of potty breaks will complete the process. She does need to be crated when left alone as she is super curious and has no fear of heights or falling.  If you open your heart to this beautiful soul, she will love you unconditionally.  She is just looking for someone to love her back. She loves riding in the car and will curl up on the front seat or on the floor in the back.

7 FEBRUARY 2014: Emily is a super friendly girl who is very people-oriented and good with other dogs and kids.  She is a very loving and affectionate!  Emily is crate-trained and not too far from being house trained.  She is good on a leash and loves to walk – the only “downside” of walking her is that she wants everyone she sees to come pet her.  It takes a few minutes to re-focus her and get her moving again.  Emily does need to work on her house manners – she loves to climb on inappropriate furniture. She would, however, likely be good for an apartment, as she has not been vocal in her foster home.

Quick update - 31 JANUARY 2014: Emily has a personality plus – LOVES everyone and wants everyone to love her.

Initial info: Emily was an owner surrender along with Flora in Dinwiddie, Virginia. More details coming soon!

    I can’t be sure about that because we have 2 other dogs.

    How well would she do as an only dog. That is my concern.

    Emily is still available. I’m her foster, but she is currently being boarded at Blue Ridge while we are on vacation. She is a sweet wonderful dog. Emily loves all people and she is one of the happiest dogs I’ve ever met! We live in Frederick MD and will be back Aug 5. Please ask BREW if you are interested in meeting her before we get back! Thanks, Christine

    I am very interested in Emily. I adopted Annie, now age 26, in July 2008 from BREW. When can I meet her?


    • Laura w/ BREW


      Email me at laura@brewbeagles.org. I’ll need your vet’s contact info and I can put you in touch with Emily’s foster family. Thanks!

    Hi! Is Emily still up for adoption? We found her on Adopt-a-pet.com, so it’s hard to determine if she’s still available based on the posts above. We have a 1.5 year-old Goldendoodle and we are looking for a playmate for him. He does very well with my in-laws and sister-in-law’s smaller dogs, and we think he would enjoy company. He loves to play, run, and lay on anyone willing to pet him on the couch. We have three girls ages 4, 6, and 9. Thanks for any information.

      Hi, Liz – yes, Emily is currently available! She is scheduled to be at our Alexandria, VA event this Saturday, so you may wish to come out and meet her if you are in the area. Applications can also be submitted at events. Otherwise, I’d encourage you to take a look at our adoption process (HERE) and fill out an application online. Our adoption area is roughly the Northern VA/DC-Philly-DE corridor. Thanks for your interest!

    If Emily is still available, we would love to meet her. we live in southern MD, 90 min from DC. We had a previous BREW beagle, Paisley, who died last August.

  8. where is this dog being fostered at?

    • ErinS

      Hi – Emily is currently fostered in the greater Washington, D.C. area and is available for adoption in and around the D.C./Philadelphia corridor. Thanks for your interest!

      • Kristin Stuhltrager

        Hi I live in DC and would love to meet Emily. I adopted a Brew Beagle, Daisy aka Sandals, back in 2009. Sadly Daisy died in September. She was a Lemon Beagle like Emily. Any chance that I meet her?

        • ErinS

          Hi, Kristin – I am so very sorry to hear about your loss, but we thank you for considering adoption again. Since you are a previous adopter, please go ahead and send an email to laura@brewbeagles.org, and she can help get you started. Also, I believe that Emily will be at our event in Bristow, VA on the 15th. Thanks for your interest!
