Snoopy

Adoption Pending!

Age: 1 year

Gender: Male

2 AUGUST 2014: 

Need help watching what you eat?  Snoopy's the pup to help you.  His creative begging will have you watch what you eat

He's settled in his foster home now and his personality is showing!  A one year old pup that thinks he's 5 months old.  He is medium energy and LOVES to play.  Trustworthy outside the crate....housebroken and doesn't chew anything except the stuffing in soft toys.  He has run of the house now. I've baited him with shoes left out and he hasn't touched them.  He knows basic commands and gives great hugs.  He's a real character to have around and well-behaved.  I recommend a house without cats.   He does play rough so he'd have to be watched around small children as he may knock them over.  He's also a very good watchdog. He's alert and gives out a great AAARRROOOO!

14 JULY 2014: Snoopy has recently moved into his foster home. He is a typical one year old with lots of energy.  Snoopy knows basic commands, sit, out, stay, and shake, and walks well on lead.  He does well with other dogs but can be annoying, as he insists on playing most of the time.  Because he plays rough, I don't think he'd do well with cats, but he has not been put to the test.  He seems to enjoy snuggling with foster sister, Elsie, though (see photo below)! More to come as he settles in!

Rover

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 2 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE - 21 MARCH 2014: Hi all, Rover here.  I have been having a good time with my foster family, but what I would really like is a family to call my own!

Let me tell you a bit about myself.  I am about 2 years old and perfectly slim at 25 pounds.  I understand what "house trained" is and I am reliable about doing my business outside.  I do need a daily schedule and it helps if folks pay attention to my signals, too.  I will come to you to let you know I need to go out.  Sometimes, I even go to the door to let you know.

I really like to be near the people. When you pick me up, I go limp and I like to be held like a baby for a tummy rub.  I am not overly active or excessively vocal, but I am busy enough that you will know I am around.  I love to play with stuffed toys.  By "play" I mean that I love to attack them and get the squeaky thing out.

Because I am just a young guy, I still like to explore things with my mouth.  I can be destructive if no one pays attention.  But, give me something I am allowed to chew on and I will be happy with that.  I am proud to say that I have learned "sit" and "stay."  When I meet someone new, I don't jump up.  I try to sit quietly next to them for a pat on the head or ear scratch.  I really want my family to help me learn more about good manners and even tricks.

Foster mom tells me that I must tell you that I will jump fences and dash out the front door.  Here at the foster home, the backyard has a 6-foot privacy fence and I haven't tried to jump that one.  I ran out the front door once and scared everyone by running right into the street! I didn't get far though and ran back when I heard "Rover, treat!"

I think I would like to be the only dog in my family, but having a doggy brother or sister would be okay, too.  I do not want any cats in my house!  I get very excited around cats; they seem to bring out the hunter in me.

I love to take leash walks, and I am learning better manners when I am on lead.  I will go potty on lead.  When no one is home, I spend time in my crate.  I know it is time to go to my crate when my foster person puts a cookie in it for me.  I also sleep in my crate at night.  I usually sleep right through the night, but if I become restless and vocal in my crate during the night, I need to go outside to potty!

And, yes, these are my real, actual photos as taken by a real, professional photographer.  I am just that handsome!  Thank you, Angela of Pooch Smooch Photography, for taking my pictures and allowing me to use them to find my forever home.

NEWS - 19 FEBRUARY 2014: Rover knows how to "sit" and "shake a paw"!

Rover came to BREW from Madison County, VA, where he was an owner surrender with his brother, Martin. He is very friendly and good with other dogs. Both boys were already fully vetted and are ready for adoption. We'll know more about Rover once he moves into a foster home. Stay tuned!

Belle

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 8 years

Gender: Female

NEWS ABOUT BELLE!! In short, Belle is a sweet tempered, easy going, belly rub loving girl who just wants someone to love (and to love her).  She is a champion cuddler; she'll snuggle right up against your side and be happy to stay there.  Her nickname is "Jelly Belly" not because she is round and jiggly - in fact, she's quite svelte - but because she loves her belly rubs.  In fact, if you stop before she's ready, she'll scoop your hand with her paw and move it back for more rubs!  She loves people and is good with both adults and kids.  (It's all good as long as you are giving belly rubs or scratching ears.)  She was initially described as not good with other dogs but she actually gets along well with her foster brothers and is happy to curl up with either of them for a nap.  She is pretty quiet, both inside and outside.  We had some issues for a bit with her barking when I left and when I got home, but we've worked on that and seem to have resolved the problem.  She is not food possessive or motivated.  (In fact, I have to keep an eye on her foster brothers because they will step in and eat her food, and she won't say anything about it.)  She is totally housetrained, and has not had a single accident in the months she's been with us.  She does not chew and has never expressed any interest in the trash.  She walks pretty well on her leash.  She'll pull a bit if there is a smell or a critter that catches her attention, but she's not horrible about it.  If you're looking for an easy-going cuddle bug, Belle is definitely your girl!

Belle came in with her "sister" Chloe. Belle is a very loving dog with people, but she is not crazy about cats. She is not food aggressive at all and just loves her humans!

Schroeder

I'm Available!

Age: 4-5 years

Gender: Male

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!

Diesel

I've Been Adopted!

Gender: Male

Age: 8

Diesel is one lovable beauty.  He is housetrained, has manners, knows commands sit, stay, come, down, and loves to cuddle with you.  This is one great boy.   He loves kids and other dogs, however doesn't appear to prefer to live with cats.  He loves to run around the yard with his foster brothers (his foster sisters prefer to sleep).  We haven't had to crate him, but will stay in his crate if you can stand to see those little eyes staring at you.  Trust me you will cave!  He also potties on the leash, but pulls a little bit when excited.  You just have to call his name and he will stop.  If you love a dog who bays instead of barks then this is your boy.  You really couldn't get a better beagle boy than him.

Diesel was adopted from BREW a few years back and has been returned because of allergies.

Words from Diesel: Hi, I just came back to BREW after being adopted in 2006. I am an an 8-year old beagle who lived with another beagle - so I'd kind of like to continue that. I tend to be a bit nervous and anxious when alone.

My family had a baby and I really enjoyed spending time with her. I'd love to find a home where there's another one of those babies!

Bella

I'm being adopted!

Gender: Female

Age: 8

Bella is like a little couch potato. She’s so content to sleep in her crate or lay out in the yard in the sun. Just give her a chew toy with some food in it and she’ll be content for hours.

She’s definitely the leader - a great protector – she’ll bark the minute she sees or smells something she doesn’t recognize.
She even “patrols” the fence when she’s outside playing with Luna.

She’s also good with children, even if they’re not always gentle with her. It doesn’t seem to phase her one bit.

She’s a very loyal dog and loves to cuddle next to you and have her belly rubbed. She’s a little bit of a princess – she doesn’t like to be outside if it has rained because the ground is still wet and she’ll bark and scratch at the door until you let her in.

She likes the company of other dogs. But she is definitely the alpha, so putting her with another alpha wouldn’t be a good idea. She would also do fine if she were the only dog in the house. She definitely doesn’t like cats. She is crate trained and never has accidents in her crate. She will also go to the bathroom on a leash. Even though she’ll
bark at strangers, she’s also shy.
