Hoosier

I went to the Rainbow Bridge

Age: 10 years

Gender: Male

FROM HOOSIER’S FOSTER MOM: Hoosier came to our female household in May. He fit right in from the beginning. Given his medical problems and his early history, Hoosier could easily have become a cranky old fellow. Instead he was one of the most loving and cuddly beagles imaginable. He didn’t have the greatest balance or breathing capacity but he still raced me to his food right up until the end, He played with the girls until they became too rough then ignored them and took toys outside under his favorite tree.

The end came much too soon; he’d developed a very large inoperable abdominal mass that shortened his life, When life became too much trouble for Hoosier with too little joy to balance the problems, we went to the Rainbow Bridge together. I hope he’s playing and happy with all the beagles who have crossed before him; I came home with the wonderful memories we created together and the wish I could have held him and rubbed his chest for a while longer.

NEW 7/23: Hoosier is a senior male beagle who gives new meaning to the words “laid back”. He’s a couch potato who enjoys being held and having his belly rubbed. He’s affectionate but not pushy. He will lay down whenever and wherever he wants and doesn’t seem to notice or worry anyone trying to get around him. This had led to being sat on and/or stepped on by one or another of his foster sisters – there are three of them. He’ll bark if he thinks they are too pushy but usually just ignores them. He will cuddle against them if the chance arises. Hoosier usually comes when called, especially when there is food or treats involved.The first night here (about 2 months ago), Hoosier was crated as a precaution. Unlike most beagles who take a few days to fit in, that was the last time he’s been crated unless travelling in the car.  He rides well and keeps the crate clean. He does have some minor urinary leakage problems and sometimes drools.Because of his medical issue Hoosier gets meds two to three times daily. One is put on his food, the others given to him in a Pill Pocket. He vigorously resists swallowing them without the Pill Pocket. One of the meds is to keep fluids from accumulating. According to the vet, this dosage of this med may vary depending on his current level of need. Because of this med, he needs outside access on a regular schedule. The dog door here works very well for him; he uses it at night as well as often during the day.Hoosier is a little wobbly, so he doesn’t sleep on the bed. It doesn’t seem to bother him and he happily cuddles when put on the bed to cuddle. Given the chance he will jump; I make sure he doesn’t jump or fall. He eats his food well. He follows as the others are fed then finishes off his food wherever it’s placed.This wonderful guy enjoys walking, likes to be outside and will often stretch out under a tree or next to the fence. But when it’s very hot out, He stays inside as the humidity affects his breathing. Hoosier does have some medical issues. He takes thyroid medication, Vetmedin and Enalapril for his heart condition as well as the furosemide.If you would like to give a senior beagle with some special needs a loving home in which to live out his life, this happy friendly little guy will return your care with unqualified love.Who’s your buddy?  Who’s your pal?   HOOSIER!!!! This tiny 10 yr young beagle boy arrived at BREW today.  He is quiet and oh so soft.  Very people friendly. His family lost their farm and he was left behind apparently tied to a tree.  He rode nicely in the crate, sitting up watching the scenery pass by or was he anxiously listening to the hockey game broadcasting from the radio?

Chloe

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 8 years

Gender: Female

Little Update: Chloe is the opposite of a bagel – a long-legged beagle (a Lleagle, if you will): very sweet; quiet & calm, if a bit skittish at first; TOTALLY housetrained; walks on a leash; NOT food-obsessed). See the new gallery picture to view her long legs (she could be a model!)

Chloe is the sweetest, most beautiful beagle ever. She loves other dogs. Chloe is skittish with new people, loud noises, thunderstorms and rain – they make her shake. She is not food aggressive at all. She is a low maintenance girl! Chloe is a little camera shy, so understand that she is prettier than her pictures can show!

Polly

I’m Available! 

Age: Approximately 6-8 years

Gender: Female

 

July 29, 2013: There’s not much more to add about Polly except that the addition of a senior foster brother has only added one more individual to her kingdom. She’s a very affectionate little beagle and will do best as either an only dog or with a submissive packmate.

She is ideally suited to someone at home a lot who will give her lots of attention, take her with them whenever possible and allow her the run of the house. She’s allowed to be loose in the house and yard when the people are gone and hasn’t gotten into anything in the time she’s been here. She comes to the side gate to watch the people leave and comes out to great us (sometimes by barking) when we return. She uses the dog door at night if she needs to go out. Polly will bark at unfamiliar noises but will usually come in when told to stop.

This is a nice little beagle and deserves a loving “furever” home with someone who will cherish her.

January 26, 2013: Polly came to us a week before Christmas, 2012. She is a mature little 22lb tricolor beagle (the vet says 6-8 years old) who is very affectionate to people but can be skittish until she knows you. Polly will bark at anyone who comes to the door, but then wants to be rubbed under the chin. She does not like to be picked up and will vigorously fight anything she doesn’t want to do. Polly will come when called and sits for her food and treats. She sleeps on the bed up against me or in another dog bed without problem and is a couch potato. Polly is not as food driven as other beagles. If she isn’t hungry she will ignore the food. When she is eating she is very defensive of other dogs coming near her or the food.

Since she came here Polly has not had an accident in the house. She uses the dog door and will potty while on the leash. She likes to ride in the car and will run for her leash. She likes to explore every scent and bush while on the leash.

Polly will be best in a home without other dogs or children. Unexpected noises and random movements close to her can bring on nippy behavior. When tested with my 7 year old and 9 year old grandchildren, she was fine as long as they sat still and rubbed her. Once they became active she became very nervous.

Right now Polly shares the house with a 32lb resident senior beagle who is very laid back and with a young ~30lb adult beagle who is very active. She often doesn’t want them anywhere near her chair or bed and will snarl at them and lunge if she thinks they don’t get the message. When she wants to play Polly doesn’t hesitate to jump right in. Although the smallest, she is definitely the dominant dog in the household.

Polly will be a wonderful addition to a home with people who are willing to take the time to integrate her into their lives. She looks like a puppy compared to the other dogs but is fully grown.

Polly is such a sweet little girl.  She is quiet and just a great beagle. She also came from Caroline County Animal Shelter.

Buck

I’ve been adopted!

Age: 5-6 years

Gender: Male

When you meet Buck, you’re just going to want to tuck him in your pocket and go. He is a very small beagle who loves some good ear scratches.  He is very mellow, and loves nothing more than to perfectly arrange his fleece blanket and then curl up for a long winter’s nap – although he does turn into a bit of a wiggle bug when it’s time to eat or when he gets out of his crate at the end of the day.  He would be GREAT for an apartment or condo, due to his size and the fact that he makes very little noise.  He is housetrained (no accidents so far – knock on wood) but also enjoys his crate (aka, “man cave”) and keeps is clean and dry during the day.  He gets along very well with his foster beagle brothers, and loves to meet other people (so he can get those ear scratches he loves so much).  He is a pretty patient guy but he definitely cannot wait to find his forever family!

Buck, 5-6yr old neutered male beagle, fully vetted including dental.  He is a small beagle boy, weighing 17lbs.  He’s friendly, low key and gets along great other dogs and good with children.  He was a stray in Orange Co. so his history is unknown.

Princess

  I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 5-6 years old

Gender: Female

Princess has been with us for a month and has completely settled in and adjusted easily to our routine.   She obviously lived in a home.  Princess (who we also call Precious) arrived housetrained and familiar with the pet door.  She loves to go outside and sit on our decks,  roll in the grass, sniff the entire yard,  and check on what is going on outside; but she is also very happy hanging out in the house.  Princess takes her job of yard “critter” control seriously; the squirrels and rabbits now know they had better keep a look out for her – she is very fast!   She loves everyone she meets.   Princess is figuring out where she fits in with our three senior female beagles and senior female chihuahua.  She would love to play, but our pack of 13+ year old seniors are not interested.   Princess is extremely fearful of crates and will bark/howl if in one.  However, we never saw a need to crate her since she is so well behaved in the house.  Since her arrival, she has had complete run of the house.   Princess is an independent beagle; she doesn’t require constant attention and is content to be by herself or hanging out with her “people”. Surprisingly, she isn’t overly worried about food and eating!  She is about 10 pounds overweight, and we are working on helping her slim down.  Princess is absolutely beautiful with such soulful eyes.  She is a wonderful dog.  Princess truly deserves her “own” people and her “own” loving home where she can be spoiled.

 

Princess, 5-6yr old liver tri-color, fully vetted.  She is friendly, can be vocal, a little plump, low key and good with other dogs.  She came to the Abingdon Shelter already spayed but was a stray.  She was mostly likely someone’s pet and is most indignant with kennel life!  She really thinks she is a little princess!!!

Nala

Adopted!

Gender: Female

Age: 3-4 years

UPDATE: Nala is a very sweet girl.  She is generally shy  and startles easily.  She has become affectionate with me.  She likes to lick my nose and likes to smell my face.  She loves to go for walks and sniff every nook and cranny of the neighborhood.  She is shy with strangers and other dogs, but her tail wags as if to say shyly, “H!”  We go for walks a lot and spend time in the backyard.  She is very good at pottying on the leash or in the fenced in yard.  I would say she qualifies as “has a clue” in regard to house training.  She curls up beside me on the couch sometimes. She spends as much time in her dog bed in the living room when I am home as on the couch with me. She usually sleeps in a dog bed at night.  She seems to enjoy a quiet lifestyle.  She is generally a couch potato, but she sometimes runs laps in the backyard which is very entertaining for me.  She is a very good companion.

Nala is a 3-4 year old spayed female beagle.  She’s friendly and gets along well with other dogs, she was a stray at the Louisa Co. Animal Shelter so her history is unknown.

Brutus

Adopted!

 

Gender: Male

Age: 13-14 years

NEW for July 4!  Brutus is very good with his house training.  No accidents in the house and he urinates basically as soon as he’s out the back door.  He likes to run and seems much younger than his calendar age.  He rides well in the car without a crate.  He also rode well when crated, but that’s to be expected.  He eats his special easy on the system dog food like a true beagle  He does sleep quite a bit, but we will too when we get to be his age.

Brutus is coming back to BREW though no fault of his own, sadly, his owner passed away. Brutus has been well taken care of and loved since he was adopted 6 years ago. His owners took care of a knee surgery for him and he has totally recovered from that. He does eat a special “easy on the stomach” canned food.

This is a totally sweet and loving boy!

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.

Lonnie

I’ve been adopted!!

Gender: Female

Age: 12-13

Lonnie was adopted 6 years ago and returned because “Lonnie’s getting older, requires more individual time and attention.” Uh….DUH! Wouldn’t you if you were that old?

Lonnie is very affectionate, gets along with all animals and children. She is crate trained. She does not like being left alone in strange environments. She loves one on one attention. She does not like being left outside alone – she is a house dog (AS ALL BREW DOGS ARE).

She sleeps or rests a lot and snores. She would be wonderful for seniors or a family with kids. She is very generous with attention.

Grayson

Grayson

I’ve been adopted with Clayton!

Age: 4-5 years

Gender: Male

3/12 update:

Grayson is a super sweet, shy little beagle boy. He has been in his foster home for seven weeks and grows more confident daily, but slowly. At first he didn’t want to come in on his own, which he will now do most of the time. When he doesn’t, he will just crouch down near the door wagging his tail and wait for someone to get him. He also doesn’t want to eat in front of us – or around the other dogs. So he and brother Clayton eat in another room. And sometimes they don’t eat all of their food. Amazing for a beagle. But good for them since they are both a bit chubby and need to lose a few pounds. Grayson weighed in at 29 pounds in January and is working toward 25 pounds.

One of the best things about Grayson is that he is an excellent cuddler and loves to get belly rubs but isn’t demanding about it.

Grayson and Clayton were given up together and I think they may have been outside a lot. The yard seems to be their comfort zone. But they both also love the bed (the people bed). So much so that they both got over their fear of moving around the house.

Grayson does bark a bit outside when he sees something worth barking at, but doesn’t keep it up and is quiet inside. He is a good boy – housetrained and not destructive. And he and Clayton have recently begun to play with one of the resident beagles.

And to top all his cuteness off, his tongue is almost always peaking out of his mouth. It really is adorable.

Grayson and Clayton are really sweet boys.  They are still a bit overwhelmed since coming to their foster home, but they find a lot of comfort in each other (they were given up together).  These boys love wandering the yard, and love to cuddle up together on a favorite chair.  And they are happy to go to the kennel at night.

Grayson is  housetrained and not destructive.

Although they easily go from house to yard coming back in is still a challenge.  We’re working on that and they are making progress!

Grayson is a 4-5yr old little male neutered beagle gentleman that is fully vetted and eagerly wanting to learn to be a loved companion. He’s a little reserved but friendly and good with others dogs. He was an owner give up in Culpeper County but the reason is unknown.
