Buddy

I’m Available!

Age: 8-9 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 24 AUGUST 2014: Buddy is on his second foray through BREW, having been returned by his adoptive family after five years.  He settled back into his foster home with aplomb.  He is a very quiet dog; he rarely barks, doesn’t run around like a crazy man, and likes to curl up by my feet wherever I happen to be.  He is housetrained and except for one attempt to mark within the first hour of him being back in his foster home, he has not had a single accident.  (He is also crate-trained but he doesn’t particularly like his crate.  Since he is housetrained and doesn’t get into mischief, he has free reign of the house when I’m gone, so the crate isn’t really an issue.)  He doesn’t get on the furniture.  He sits (both on command and on his own) like a champ – at dinner time, for treats, to get his ears scratched (both by me and by all of the folks that we meet out-and-about).  He walks well on a leash; not much pulling (although he can get a bit stubborn when I want him to move on if a spot smells particularly good).  He is mostly a couch – well dog bed – potato, but he does play with toys occasionally and with me sometimes too.  He is good with the kids that we have met on our walks, even the younger ones.  He did have back surgery a bit ago, and while that doesn’t seem to bother him (and our orthopedic vet said he is fine), he doesn’t like it when other dogs pounce around on his back.  (Can’t say I blame him.)  So I don’t rough-house with him and I would say that it would be best for him to not be in an environment where that is a possibility.  He gets along well with his foster brothers (both of whom are on the older side and don’t rough-house anymore), although he and one of his foster brothers occasionally get snarky with one another about toys (mostly because his foster brother believes all toys are his and will steal things from Buddy).  Oh, and Buddy is a rather hairy beagle.  I think he’s mixed up with a longer-haired breed (like a Golden Retriever or a Husky).  He’s very soft, but very furry…and he’s got a great whiskered chin.  In short, Buddy is a sweet, polite, quiet, hairy little guy who will make someone/some family a great companion.

22 JULY 2014: Buddy is an adorable beagle boy with five years of pet experience under his belt. He was originally adopted from BREW in 2009 and has recently come back to the rescue. Buddy is moving into a foster home soon (the same one as in 2009), so stay tuned for more information once he’s settled in!

Original info (September 2009): Campbell [now Buddy], 3-4 year old neutered male that is fully vetted and ready for a new home.  He is friendly and great with other dogs but was a stray at the Louisa Co Animal Shelter so his history is unknown.

Kahlo

I’m Available!

Age: 2 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 30 AUGUST 2014: We have really enjoyed Kahlo. It took a couple weeks for him to feel at home, but there are many great things about him. He is playful, always wagging his tail, even when he was shy. It may take a short while for him to be comfortable with strangers (all women, men, children), but then he is a great companion.

He follows me around all the time, and he’s crate-trained and house-trained with consistent walks around 4 times a day. He is great with my kids, ages 5 and 8. He plays with my dog, a female beagle mix. He is a medium energy dog and enjoys being with people very much. He is upbeat about life, despite all he’s been through. Kahlo is a unique red color with hazel eyes – he’s gorgeous!

Original info: Kahlo is a small, beagle mix boy that is 2 years old.  He’s friendly, playful, and good with other dogs but can be a little submissive with people.  He and Henry were owner give-ups in Amelia County, Virginia, but no other history is known.

Kobi

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 2 years

Gender: Male

ANOTHER UPDATE – 23 MARCH 2014: Kobi is a new foster home with no fence to be climbed.  He settled in very nicely with his 2 foster brothers.  He tries to get them to play but they’re older and not interested.  He likes his naps also.  With his feet up!

QUICK UPDATE – 21 MARCH 2014: Cute, little Kobi had settled nicely into a foster home over the past week. Unfortunately, he proved to be a fence-climber, so he is back in boarding for now to keep him safe. Kobi will need a forever home with a tall , non-chain-link fence or no fence at all (plus plenty of walks!). Also, during his brief stay in foster home #1, we found out that Kobi is good with cats!

Original info: Kobi is a 2-year-old male who will be available for adoption after his vetting is completed [update: Kobi is now vetted!].  This tiny little boy is very friendly and is good with other dogs and small children.  He was a stray in Louisa County, Virginia so his history is unknown.

Emily

I’m Available!

Age: 6 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 10 May 2014: Emily is a very kind and affectionate beagle. She loves both other people and other dogs! She will play and wrestle with our other dogs until she gets tired and decides to either sun herself on our deck or sink herself into our sofa. But Emily likes human attention most of all and thrives on it. Both of us work full-time and we have not seen any separation anxiety with Emily. We surmise this is because she is content when she is with other dogs and not completely alone. We have never heard Emily growl even when our other dogs bug her. So we often say to one another “she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body”! Also Emily doesn’t bark much so if you are looking for a quiet dog, she is it. At least until she starts snoring that is. Emily is the snoring champ at our house but it’s a cute snore.  So overall, Emily is a very easy dog. She comes when called and keeps her crate clean. We are 99% sure Emily is house broken. Take a look at Emily when you get a chance. We think she would be great with any age child, dog, or adult.

5 APRIL 2014: Emily is a very affectionate, curious gal, who is looking for a new foster (or forever!) home. She was being fostered by a terrific family, but they discovered that she has separation anxiety. When left alone, (without other human or canine company)  she becomes very upset and unhappy.   This leads us to believe that Emily will need a foster home and, ultimately, a forever home that includes another dog (specifically one that doesn’t mind sharing human affection – see below). Emily LOVES people and would likely also benefit from a household with at least one person home during most the day. 17

FEBRUARY 2014: Emily has a bubbly personality and loves being the center of attention being showered with pets and kisses.  She walks well on leash but insists on meeting everyone – human and dog.  She would do well having access to a dog park.  She can be an only dog or with another dog who is aloof as she tends to push her way into getting ALL the attention. She has a clue about house training and a good schedule of potty breaks will complete the process. She does need to be crated when left alone as she is super curious and has no fear of heights or falling.  If you open your heart to this beautiful soul, she will love you unconditionally.  She is just looking for someone to love her back. She loves riding in the car and will curl up on the front seat or on the floor in the back.

7 FEBRUARY 2014: Emily is a super friendly girl who is very people-oriented and good with other dogs and kids.  She is a very loving and affectionate!  Emily is crate-trained and not too far from being house trained.  She is good on a leash and loves to walk – the only “downside” of walking her is that she wants everyone she sees to come pet her.  It takes a few minutes to re-focus her and get her moving again.  Emily does need to work on her house manners – she loves to climb on inappropriate furniture. She would, however, likely be good for an apartment, as she has not been vocal in her foster home.

Quick update - 31 JANUARY 2014: Emily has a personality plus – LOVES everyone and wants everyone to love her.

Initial info: Emily was an owner surrender along with Flora in Dinwiddie, Virginia. More details coming soon!

Buck

I’m Available!

Age: 5-6 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 23 JULY 2014: Buck wants to know why he hasn’t been adopted yet! Maybe it’s because he’s a little older than some of the beagles here? But that shouldn’t mean he can’t go to a nice home. He’s a very sweet boy. Buck loves to go for walks. Sometimes he will pull on his leash, but that is because he is so excited to be outside, sniffing the ground or meeting other dogs. Buck also LOVES to be pet. He will sit by your side while you pet his head. If you stop, he’ll nuzzle against you or try to climb into your lap. Buck is great in his crate. We’ve never heard a peep from him in there. He loves to just snooze in his crate. Buck is practically housetrained. He hasn’t had an accident in two months. Buck has been a very good houseguest. I think, though, that Buck would love to find his forever home!

10 MARCH 2014: Meet Buck! He is a mellow fellow and all around nice boy. Buck, known as Bucky, joined our household two weeks ago and has been a perfect gentleman. He walks very nicely on leash. Sometimes he’ll get excited if he catches a scent or sees another dog that he wants to say hi to. Generally, he’ll just follow along to where you want to go.

Buck seems to have a clue about house training. He tried to mark the first day in our house, but hasn’t done that since. He is fine in his crate and considers it his den. Sometimes he’ll bring all his stuffed toys into his crate and sleep with them. Bucky knows how to take a treat gently from your hands. He was also very patient and let me clean his ears, bathe him and cut his nails, all without a peep.

He gets along with our cats and pretty much ignores them. Buck likes being around humans. He will follow wherever the humans go and sit patiently for us to pet him or rub his ears. But Buck is also fine just hanging out in a dog bed or his crate and snoozing or playing with a stuffed toy. We took Buck on a trip to New York City and he was fine with all the people and city noises. He even enjoyed watching ice hockey at Bryant Park. I think Buck would make a great addition to a household looking for a sweet, easygoing beagle.

Original information: Buck came to BREW from Madison County, VA, where he was found as a stray. He is very sweet and low key, and does well with other dogs. We’re still getting to know him, but Buck’s recent weekend transporter reports that he is a vocal guy. Stay tuned for more info!

Tina

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 5-6 years

Gender: Female

1 JANUARY 2014 UPDATE: Hi there!  I’m Tina, but my foster mom calls me Tink (short for Tinkerbell).  I like to watch squirrels & birds out the window and play with toys – especially the ones that squeak.  I’m a champion cuddler and I love belly rubs.  I’ve got a very girly howl, according to my foster mom, but I don’t use it very much; I’m usually pretty quiet.  I like to get in the trash – you never know if there might be something good in there – but I get in trouble when I do that.  I fall asleep sitting up.  I know I’m supposed to potty outside and I almost always do, but I forget sometimes.  (I’m working on it.)  I like to eat; my foster mom calls me “food motivated.”  I beg for food but my foster mom won’t give in – no matter how many pathetic looks I give her.  (She’s trying to teach me to stop…but hope springs eternal.)  I like to hang out with my foster brother beagles and I try to get them to play but they’re old so they aren’t really interested.  I like to go on walks and I really want to chase the squirrels but my foster mom won’t let me.  I like to eat snow…and sometimes dirt.  Oh, and I LOVE to give kisses.  Do you think maybe I’d be a good addition to your family?

Original Info: Tina came to BREW as a stray from the Louisa County, VA Animal Shelter.  She arrived at the shelter pregnant and delivered 4 pups. She was a wonderful mom and is great with small kids and other dogs. Stay tuned for more info once Tina moves into a foster home!

Dexter

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 1-2 years

Gender: Male

NEW!!   Dexter is a very fun little dog.  He gets along great with other dogs and enjoys going to the dog park so he can run around.  Being a young dog, he LOVES to play with toys and has a very hard time walking by one with out picking it up to carry it around, even during his walks.  He gets along very well with children as well and plays nicely with them without jumping up.  He is doing very well with his house training and also goes eagerly into a crate and keeps it clean and dry.  He is a easy going dog and doesn’t mind being fed with other dogs and shares his toys with them too.  He is very quiet and would do well in either a house or an apartment.  Even though he loves to play with his foster brothers he would do just as well in a home without other dogs as he is a social little guy and likes to play with humans just as much.  Dexter does play pretty hard, but he also sees the value in a good long nap on a soft bed.

First Impressions: Dexter rode very well in his crate for 5 hours.  He just curled up and slept the entire way and he left his crate clean and dry!

Dexter (a.k.a. Dex) is a small, young beagle boy who is coming to BREW this weekend (2 November 2013) from Bedford County, Virginia. He is very sweet and weighs about 25 pounds. Dexter was originally found as a stray with another beagle (a senior female the finder decided to keep), and his history is unknown. Dexter will be fully vetted soon, and we will know more about him once he is in a foster home.

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!

Marley

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 1-2 years

Gender: Female

Read all about me!!  We’ve only had Marley for a short period of time, but she is one of the happiest dogs we have ever met.  Her tail never stops wagging, and she is extremely friendly with people and dogs.  While she has been friendly with our dogs (one 7 year old male and one 4 year old female beagle), she doesn’t seem to be dependent on having another dog in the house. We think she could be happy as the only dog in a family or with other dogs.

Unlike most beagles, she is very quiet. We have not heard her bark yet. She doesn’t seem (maybe just not yet) to like to jump on beds and couches.  She seemed a little clumsy at first around stairs, so we are not sure if she’s lived in a house before.  Because of this, we are trying to work on some of her house manners.  She is crate, and we are working on house training. Like most beagles, she is always hungry.  So we are also working on getting her to sit for treats and not beg for food while we are eating.  She has more energy than our other beagles and loves going for walks.  She is also a little bigger (not overweight, bigger frame) than our beagles, and we estimate she is 28-30 pounds.

Marley, 1-2yr old spayed female, friendly, good with other dogs.  She was an owner giveup to the Amelia Co. Animals Shelter because she wouldn’t hunt.

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.
