Sandy

I’m Available and Looking for a Foster Home!

Age: 5 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 29 NOVEMBER: Sandy has had bladder surgery for a stone and is now fully recovered.  She is on a stone diet which the vet recommends permanently, but she is not a big eater so a $25-30 bag of food will last her roughly a month.  The vet can issue a prescription if her future adopter would like to order it.  She is the perfect little girl: crate trained, house-trained, loves to ride, sleeps at the foot of the bed, and plays great with my other dogs.  She is a little possessive over her food but the worst that she does is bark.

6 NOVEMBER 2014: Sandy is a good little girl, crate trained and plays well with my dogs.  She does go to the door when she needs to go out but if you don’t see her, she will pee on the floor, but I guess she can’t help it, as she is getting over an infection.  The vet confirmed she is already spayed.

31 OCTOBER 2014: Sandy is an AKC-registered, five-year-old beagle girl. Her owner gave her up to the Abingdon Animal Shelter because she “yodels” (who doesn’t enjoy a little beagle song?!?).  She’s on the small side and estimated to be around 20 pounds.  The shelter said that she kept her kennel clean and always went potty when they took her out on a leash.  BREW’s wonderful kennel volunteer has Sandy at home. She seems to be house-trained, enjoys playing with other dogs, and made herself right at home in her current foster mom’s bed! Sandy appears to be spayed, but we do not have any medical records. She will be getting checked out by one of our vets soon!

Sugar

I’m Available!

Age: 7-8 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 7 DECEMBER 2014: Little Sugar has been with us for 2 weeks now. What a perfect house guest. She gets along great with her foster brothers and loves to cuddle with me when watching TV. And, don’t let her age fool you. This little girl has plenty of spunk! She loves to run around the back yard. Just sniffing and checking things out.

Sugar walks nicely on a leash. Even though this petite little girl has short legs, she can really keep up with her brother. She can be very food motivated and will try to take her brother’s food.  But that’s how beagles are.

She has kept her crate clean all day and will go to the back door to go out to potty.

Sugar has been difficult to photograph, but you can see she loves her foster brother. She is a very dear, ADORABLE, little beagle girl who deserves her forever home!

Original info: Sugar is a 7- to 8-year-old female who currently weighs around 14 pounds.  She is super sweet, affectionate, and great with small children and other dogs.  She was a stray in Amelia County so her history is unknown. Sugar will be available once her vetting has been completed [update: Sugar is now fully vetted!].

Megan

I’m Available!

Age: 3 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 4 DECEMBER 2014: Megan (a.k.a. MR. Sparklepants, even though the kids know Megan is a girl!) has settled right in, and is a wonderful dog.  She will snuggle with you, your spouse, your kids, your mom, your neighbor, your mailman, the stranger down the street…. anyone she can find to love on.  We have determined she is house trained, and has even mastered the doggie door very quickly.  She has full run of the house, even when we’re out, and has never had any accidents.  Megan now goes up and down the stairs with ease (and sometimes in full stride when playing tag with the girls).

We took her to the doggie park when the weather was nice over the holiday weekend and she had a blast running free with all of the other dogs.  Megan has been a pleasure to have in our home, and would be a very special Christmas addition for any family.

29 NOVEMBER 2014: Megan spent her first day in her foster home, and was a sweetheart from the start!  She instantly took to the girls, one who is 3 and the other 8.  Megan seems as though she is craving attention, and spent most of the day at someone’s side.  Anyone’s lap she could fill, she was there!  She played in the yard, and met the neighbor dogs through the fence, and is very attentive to the sound of any dog barking in the neighborhood.

Megan walked well on the leash, as we took her on our favorite route around the nearby cul-de-sac.  She is very submissive, so we’re not sure if she’s suffered any abuse in the past or not, but she is extremely loving.  She would make a good lap dog, as she is ready to curl up with anyone who will show her affection.  Megan seemed hesitant to wander around independently at first, but is starting to warm up to the idea of sniffing around to see what kind of trouble she can get into.  She had no trouble going up the stairs, but was a little unsure of going down.  Little by little she’s gathering up the courage, and made the trek without assistance twice already.

It seems as though Megan would be a really great dog for any family, with or without children, and possibly even for a family that already has another dog.  She slept in her doggie bed last night in our room without any issues, (although I think she would have preferred to sleep in our bed with us!) We will continue to monitor her behavior and interaction with our family, as well as how she behaves when left alone.  Her first opportunity for independence will be tomorrow for a few hours, so we’ll keep you posted.

10 OCTOBER 2014: Megan is sweet, quiet, and low-key, and she gets along well with other dogs. Her vetting will be completed soon.

Original info: Megan is a small, 3-year-old female who still needs vetting. She is very friendly and good with other dogs.  She was a stray at the Louisa County Animal Shelter so her history is unknown.

Michelle

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 2-3 years

Gender: Female

QUICK UPDATE – 20 OCTOBER 2014: Michelle recently got back from a one-week “vacation” in another BREW foster home, where she had a blast playing with Charlie! She also enjoyed meeting lots of people and other dogs at Beaglefest. Back at her foster home, she continues to be playful, wishing the somewhat grumpy dogs (and even the cats) would play with her more, but she loves a good nap – sometimes perched on the back of the couch like a cat – or snuggle in a lap.

28 SEPTEMBER 2014: Michelle is having a great time in her foster home! This weekend she participated in a 5K dog walk and loved it, sniffing at least 90% of the route, and she was excellent with all the dogs she met, many of which were much larger than her. She hasn’t had any accidents in the week she’s been here, and is still fairly quiet. Michelle does bark and whine some when she’s ready to get out of her crate, and she will howl some at critters in the yard and on walks. She’s proven trust-worthy when left out unattended for short periods of time, although she did make a nest on the people bed once. We’ve also found something she likes better than snuggling on the couch – snuggling on the couch between two people! Michelle is a good mix of energy levels – she’s always up for a walk and has occasional bursts of energy – often to play with toys, but she seems to always be up for a good nap on the couch, too!

22 SEPTEMBER 2014: Michelle has been in her foster home for just over a day, but she is already very comfortable and a joy to have around. She is absolutely adorable and very snuggly. Michelle is about average height for a beagle but has very delicate features and weighs about 20 pounds soaking wet. She has gotten along nicely with our three dogs (15-65 pounds) and has mostly ignored the cats. Thus far, her favorite things are to nap on the couch (preferably with a human) and explore the yard. She also seems to enjoy walks but could use a little practice on the leash. She had not had any accidents and will potty both in the yard and on a leash. She slept soundly through the night in her crate in our bedroom, and I have yet to hear her bark. Michelle is a great catch!

Original info: Michelle is a small 2-year-old female beagle who is fully vetted.  She is friendly and quiet and gets along great with other dogs.  She was a stray at the Madison County Animal Shelter, so her history is unknown.

Sammy

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 3 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 8 NOVEMBER 2014: Sammy is a wonderful dog. He is timid when first approached, and very submissive, so rather than run from you he will lie down and show you his belly. Once you start rubbing that soft belly, he’s a happy boy! He has claimed a spot next to his favorite person (mom, of course!) on the couch, and he sleeps on mom and dad’s bed when they aren’t around. When they get ready to go to bed, Sammy reluctantly goes to his own doggy bed (in the same room) where he sleeps the whole night through. He is completely house-trained, and learned how to use the doggy door after being in his foster home for only a few hours. He gets along well with his three doggy siblings.

After a full week in our home, I have not heard Sammy bark even once. It is surprising, but because I assumed he would join into the howling chorus that greets me every day when I get home from work, but Sammy just squeezes into the crowd and wags his tail with vigorous anticipation. He does not have a destructive bone in his body, either. He hasn’t even come close to chewing on anything except the dog bones I give him, which he loves! (He’s not to sure about the squeaky toys, though; those are kind of scary.) The only thing that Sammy struggles with is leash walking. He doesn’t like the leash, so we have been practicing walking outside on it a little each day to try to get him comfortable with it.

Overall, Sammy is a happy, healthy boy who seems to love everyone he meets. He would be a wonderful addition to any family!

3 NOVEMBER 2014: Sammy has been in his foster home for one day and is settling in nicely. He gets along with all of the other dogs and hasn’t done any marking in the house. He slept all night in his dog bed in our room.

10 OCTOBER 2014: Sammy is sweet, quiet, and low-key. He needs a little more confidence but gets along great with other dogs.

Original info: Sammy is a 3-year-old fully vetted male beagle.  This big, handsome guy is friendly and playful and gets along great with other dogs.  He was a stray in Culpeper Animal Shelter so his history is unknown.
