Age: 5-6 years
Kane is a BREW alum. He was adopted in the Spring of 2012 by a woman suffering from brain cancer. Her previous beagle died and her mood deteriorated, so her caregivers thought having another beagle companion would help her. Kane accepted the responsibility with gusto. He took very good care of her and loved her a lot and hopefully made her last few months a little brighter. (Her caretakers said he did.) And when it was time for her to go (over Thanksgiving weekend), he came back to BREW. While he was taking care of his adopted mom, he packed on some pounds, because she liked to give him lots of treats, so we're working on getting him back down to his normal weight. But other than that, he is the same old Kane - a snuggly couch potato who likes to "sing" when you scratch his ears or his belly, loves dinner time, and is looking for nothing more than to love and be loved. This is a very special, loving, wonderful little guy, and he would make an awesome addition to any family.
Meet Kane. He is just the sweetest, wiggly little teddy bear who is great cuddler and very adept at coaxing belly rubs. He is a champion couch (and people bed and dog bed) potato. (He sometimes has to be convinced to get up & go outside.) Aside from food, his favorite thing in the world is his stuffed elephant, which he carries with him all over the house and tries to sneak out of the house when we take walks. He is housetrained (although he has the occasional accident - nobody is perfect!), as well as crate-trained, and he walks well and potties on a leash. He also knows how to "sit" to get a treat. He has a big voice and while he does not use it that much, he does bark when I get home and let him out of his crate (and keeps it up as he runs to the front door to be walked), and oftentimes when we're walking if he catches a scent. He does well with his two foster brother beagles, and can regularly be found cuddled up with one of them. He also likes people (after all, they scratch his ears and if he's really lucky, his belly). He has not been exposed to cats or children since he's been with me. He is pretty gentle (doesn't jump much or ram around), so he would probably be OK with children.
He was a stray at the Louisa County Animal Shelter so his history is unknown.
