Adoption Pending!

11 AUGUST 2014: Schroeder is really flourishing in his foster home.  He gets along well with his foster sister, Rudy.  He is very patient and friendly with kids, and their noise and movement does not bother him.  I don’t imagine he’d do well with cats, based on his reaction to their appearance in the yard.  He has a tendency to be a couch potato, but gets excited about walks and would go on them as often as there is someone willing to take him.

He has some anxiety issues, which have been greatly helped by a routine and daily doggy Prozac.  He cannot be crated; his crate anxiety is severe, and he will destroy anything that is in the crate with him, and has damaged the crate itself.  Now that he is kept out of it and on Prozac, his is not destructive at all.  He cannot hold his bladder for a full 8 hours, but has been trained to use a potty patch, and does very well with this.  He has not peed anywhere else inside for months.  He is an affectionate dog, and loves attention from anyone and everyone.  He will do just about anything for food, and has learned a few basic tricks.  He loves walks, or just trotting around the yard, anywhere he can smell all the wonders the world has to offer.

I heard from previous caretakers that he is not good with other males.  He is fine with my brother’s German shepherd, but that has only been for play dates.  If he doesn’t want to play, he just gives him a bark and walks away.  Not sure about long term exposure to other males. Also, he was given back because ‘he barked’.  His barking was only a problem when he was crated.  Now that he is no longer crated, there have been no additional barking complaints.

Schroeder would do best, I believe, in a house with another dog or two, a fenced yard and perhaps a doggy door (but only if the fence is very secure – he is a VERY smart boy), and a family of any size that will keep him active and well loved.

14 OCTOBER 2013: Schroeder is such a great dog! He’s been with me and his foster sister Rudy for 2 weeks now. He is so sweet and so happy. I can tell he is loving being on a soft couch/bed and loves to cuddle 24/7. He follows me around the house, always with his tail wagging! We are working on getting on a potty schedule and some verbal commands, and he is doing quite well. It is obvious he is a very smart boy! He loves to go outside, either in the yard or for a walk around downtown. He can’t get enough of the smells. This is a boy that would do really well with a doggie door and a family to give him lots of love. He has plenty to go around!

SEPTEMBER 2013: Schroeder is a very friendly, robust boy who is good with most other dogs (he may not get along with alpha males, but he likes his beagle buddies at the kennel). He has not been very vocal at the kennel, and he loves food and doggy biscuits!!! We will know more about Schroeder once he is in a foster home.

Original info: Schroeder is a very friendly boy from Caroline County, MD. He is about 4-5 years. He was adopted but came back because he "barked"...???? Sigh. Very nice boy!

  1. Quick question… You have his age listed as “4-5 years”. Is that his current age (Sept ’16) or when his profile was last updated (Aug ’14)?
    Cheers,

    • Erin

      Hi, Katy – you’ve caught us in an instance where the dog’s age hasn’t been updated since he was posted. How embarrassing! Schroeder was listed as an estimated 4-5 years in the fall of 2012, which would make him 8-9 years old now. He is still happily living with his foster mom. Thanks for your interest!

  2. Hi there, this post is from 2014, is this little guy still looking for a forever home? And if so, is it possible to get an update on how he’s doing and whether he would be suited to a condo/apartment? Thanks!

    • Yes!! This sweet, happy boy is still with the same foster family; since late 2013. An apt or condo is a possibility, but crating is not. I will work in getting an update and some of our many pictures submitted asap. If you’ve applied, the rescue can get you our contact info.

  3. Debbie Szymanik

    I can’t believe this great guy is still available!! Paws crossed his forever family finds him soon.

  4. Emily Logar

    Thank you so much!

  5. Emily Logar

    When you want to meet a dog do you have to fill out an adoption application?

    • Erin

      Hi, Emily – unless you are able to come to an event the dog is attending, you will need to fill out an application prior to meeting the dog. I don’t know Schroeder’s availability for upcoming events (list HERE). Thanks for your interest!

  6. Emily Logar

    Thank you so much for helping me. I’ll see what I can do.;)

  7. Emily Logar

    Ok great! Would it be possible to get the address of the foster family’ s home?

    • Laura w/ BREW

      Emily, I’m sorry but we can’t give out foster family information until an application has been submitted and the phone interview completed. Thanks and we look forward to helping you find a beagle companion.

  8. Emily Logar

    Thanks! Where is Schroeder located?

    • Erin

      Hi, Emily – Schroeder is currently located in Eastern PA.

  9. Emily Logar

    When you fill out an application to meet a dog, does the dog come to your house?

    • Laura w/ BREW

      Emily, no, you would need to meet the beagle in the foster family’s home.

    Hi it’s Emily Logar i was just wondering if you could tell me if shroeder is house trained, crate trained, fully vetted, and nuerted.

    • Erin

      Hi, Emily – apologies for the slow reply. I just now saw this comment. Schroeder is fully vetted and neutered, and I’d guess that he’s house-trained by now, as he’s been in his foster home for quite some time. I’ll see if we can get an update from his foster home. Thanks for your interest!

    Hi Sarah –

    Sorry I didn’t see this (again). If you are still thinking about Schroeder, why not drop me an email at [removed for privacy]. Thanks!

  12. Sarah DeBruin

    Schroder sounds wonderful! we are hoping to adopt a beagle again after recently losing ours to cancer. CAn we get more information about him? How is he with children?

    • Carrie Robb

      Sarah – Sorry, I just saw this. Just let me know if you are still interested, and I can surely get you more information. I don’t have children, but he has been really super with all the children that we have been around. He is very gentle and loves to be petted by my 15 month old niece, and the child of a friend who is about that age as well.

      • Sarah DeBruin

        Hi Carrie,
        If Schroder is still available we would love to meet him. Our application has been approved except for the home inspection, which should be happening shortly.

  13. Deb Szymanik

    Thank you Carrie – I have loved this guy since BREW took him into their program; and prayed he would find a foster home while he waited for his new family. His write up is wonderful. I am so happy to hear how happy he is and how smart. Now we wait for his forever family to find him!

    What wonderful news that Schroeder is now in a foster home! I know it will be no time at all until his forever family comes and adopts him. A big thank you to the person who took Schroeder into their home to foster. He had been waiting for quite a while. I just love this guy.

  16. Patrick

    After the day at the Alexandria petco(Sept 28 2013).. I wish i could adopt him. Such a great beagle. Just a happy go lucky dog. For how great of a dog he is…. Let him bark!

  17. Deb Szymanik

    I am so happy to read that Schroeder is at the kennel now – waiting for his forever home or someone to take him home to foster. He is such a wonderful beagle boy – and he has been waiting for so long. Can’t believe this great guy is still with BREW. Paws crossed for a FOSTER or even better a HOME to call his own.

  18. Deb Szymanik

    OMG – Becky that would be the answer to my prayers! Schroeder has been waiting so long for a foster family. That is great news for sure!! Can’t wait to hear he is with you.

  19. Becky Froberg

    Where is he now? I’d like to foster him, if possible.

  20. Such an adorable beagle, so sad that he just barked….. im intrested in him. Where is he? Were getting another dog tho to, so… Im making a $150. Were getting a smaller fence so that we could watch the dogs.

  21. Deb Szymanik

    Paws crossed that he finds his forever home tomorrow at the adoption event. If not, a foster home would sure be wonderful. Wish I had room for this guy – I just love him.

  22. Jo Brown

    Dogs don’t bark unless they’ve something to say, its a language barrier. The saddest part is that sometimes they bark to share their enthusiasm, but their happiness is not well recieved. I hope Schroeder finds a family who loves his music and encourages his joy!

  23. Deb Szymanik

    Hoping someone grabs this adorable little guy up fast. If he doesn’t find a forever home, a foster home would sure be great.

  24. Rhonda

    A noisy beagle? What a shocker! Since he was previously adopted, do you have any information from his previous fosters? We lost our 13 1/2 year old BREW beagle over Christmas and our remaining dog is very lonely. It saddens me to think of “replacing” my Champ, but for my girl’s sake, we’re looking around for a new furry kid to love.

  25. Rhonda Lehtinen

    Imagine that – a beagle who makes noise. Sigh…. Since he was previously adopted, is there any information still out there from the previous foster family?

  26. Deb Szymanik

    What a great looking beagle boy. How sad he was dumped back at a shelter because he barked……………..Well hopefully things will improve greatly for him; and he will find a loving home with someone who knows that beagles like to bark and sniff for critters (maybe some basset there too?). Paws crossed he gets into a foster home soon and on his way to a new home. He is so handsome – what a regal face.
