Delaney

Delaney

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 3 years

Gender: Female

QUICK UPDATE – 27 MARCH 2014: They have only recently moved into a foster home, but Delaney’s foster mom reports that she and her sister, Colleen are very sweet, seem to be house-trained, and are cat-tested and approved!

Original info: Delaney is a 25 pound lass. She is tri-color, 3 years old. She came to BREW from Lexington, VA. She is instantly friendly when approached by people. This is a good thing because she is a people magnet. Everybody just wants to pet her and get her attention. She likes the attention and gently wags her tail throughout. She gets along with other dogs, and travels well. Delaney would be a shoe-in for Miss Congeniality if it weren’t for her rescue partner, Colleen. Between the two of them, it is a photo-finish, probably a tie.

Colleen

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 3 years

Gender: Female

QUICK UPDATE – 13 MAY 2014: Colleen’s sister has been adopted, but she loves, loves, loves to play with her new foster brother, Gunner, who is also available for adoption from BREW!

30 MARCH 2014: Colleen is a very happy little – well at 30 pounds, not so little – beagle girl.  She came to her foster home a week ago with Delaney.  They both settled in very quickly.  Colleen is the more confident of the two, but she still has moments of being unsure of what is going on (If I go out do I get to come back in? or Not sure I want to go in that room).  Of course, meal time and treats bring out the confident, happy little girl that she is.  She does eat fast, but rare is the beagle that doesn’t.  Colleen is also housetrained.  She hasn’t started to signal at her foster home – and we get the crew out fairly frequently whether they ask or not.  So far, she has spent her time cuddled with a person or sister Delaney.  Of course, the weather this weekend hasn’t been the best for going outside to explore.  She isn’t a big barker, but does occasionally have a conversation with me. She gets along well with the dogs in the house and the cats are fine with her too.  She will bark at the cats a bit and wag her tail in play and they just look at her as if to say not interested – but she doesn’t make them wary or uncomfortable.  Colleen and Delaney slept quietly in the kennel their first night here but graduated to the bedroom when I realized they are housetrained.

27 MARCH 2014: They have only recently moved into a foster home, but Colleen’s foster mom reports that she and her sister, Delaney are very sweet, seem to be house-trained, and are cat-tested and approved!

Original info: Colleen, a sweet tri-color beagle girl of 30 pounds and 3 years, came to BREW from Lexington, VA. She is very comfortable with people and loves to look deep into your eyes. She gets along well with other dogs and walks nicely on lead (however, like most beagles, will pull when she gets a scent). She travels well in her crate, keeps it clean, and keeps quiet. Colleen would be a shoe-in for Miss Congeniality if it weren’t for her rescue partner, Delaney. Between the two of them it is a photo-finish.

Russell

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 4 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 2 May 2014: Russell is the sweetest boy.  He likes everyone.  He still has a lot of puppy in him and loves to run and play. While I do not normally crate my dogs, Russell will nap during the day in one of the available crates and will sleep on a dog bed or in a crate at night.  I do not find it necessary to crate him when I am out.   

He seems to be house trained, but likes to mark his territory in new environments.  

He likes to be picked up and held like a puppy even though he is around 25 pounds.  He waits for you to pick him up and doesn’t get on the furniture.  When you put him on the couch next to you, he loves to be cuddled and will give kisses if you not careful.

Russell is like most beagles and is very food motivated.  He does jump up on you if forget to make him sit before giving treats.  Russell has a melodic bay.  My dog walker calls him Jovi (after Bon Jovi).  He is a joy to have around and will make someone a great pet.

Original info: Russell is a friendly beagle boy who recently came to BREW from Dinwiddie, Virginia. He weighs approximately 25 pounds, and the shelter reported that he is good with cats, dogs, and kids. Stay tuned as we get to know him better!

Chelsea

Chelsea

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 9 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE - 1 MAY 2014: Chelsea has been a SUPER-STAR of a foster dog in her nearly two months in our home! She has 8.5 years of pet experience, and it shows – no accidents, no chewing other than toys, plays well with others, sleeps through the night, listens well most of time, etc. Chelsea had previously been an only dog, but she has blended well with our three-dog, three-cat household, and she recently spent a week in another foster home with two much older female beagles and had a great time. She does have some fairly common, beagle-y traits, but these have been minor in our household – barking when she sees other dogs outside and when we come home, pulling a bit on the leash, and some stubbornness, especially outside. But – she is adorable, especially when she plays one-ended (no return) fetch with her favorite bunny toy! We really enjoy having Chelsea around, and she would be a great addition to a home looking for a friendly, but not over-bearing, house-savvy gal who loves to go for daily walks. Chelsea is quite a catch!

23 MARCH 2014: Chelsea has been in her foster home for two weeks now, and she has settled in very nicely, despite an above-average level of chaos in a household that includes three other dogs (all male), three cats, and two humans. She continues to get along well with our pets and hasn’t given up on trying to get the other dogs to play with her. Chelsea will play some through the fence with our neighbors’ young, female bulldog. She also likes dog toys, and we’ve found that she loves to be out in the snow! Yesterday, Chelsea traveled with us to visit friends with three children, ages 4-6, and she was very gentle and friendly with them and had no problems napping while they were playing loudly. She was very interested in some of the kids’ toys, but after we put away the most interesting ones, she left them alone. Chelsea is completely house-trained and crate-trained. In fact, she very much likes sleeping in the crate on her own, and we no longer shut the crate door at night. She has shown no interest in the furniture, but does enjoy a good dog bed. She has done well when left out with the other dogs for a few hours, but we do crate her while we are gone for longer periods of time (the resident dogs can be grumps). Chelsea is very vocal from the crate when we come home, and she will bark at dogs from the yard and on walks. Speaking of the yard and walks, Chelsea loves to be outside! She has quite a bit of endurance, although she is also a bit of a puller on the leash. If I didn’t have her records, I’d guess that she was a few years younger based on her energy level and playfulness. Chelsea is an all-around great gal, and she would be a great addition to a home with at least one family member willing and able to walk her daily. If you think Chelsea may be the one for you, please fill out an application!

8 MARCH 2014: Chelsea came back to BREW this week and just arrived in her new foster home last night. She is a beautiful, 9-years-young, liver tri-colored girl who tips the scales at about 28 pounds. Chelsea (formerly “Sassy”) was originally adopted from BREW in 2005 at about six months of age, and her owner recently made the difficult decision to return her due to changes in living situation and work schedule. Chelsea is still settling in to her foster home, but she has been good overall with the three resident dogs (all males, 15-60 pounds) and has ignored the cats. She does need to work a bit on her boundaries with the other (occasionally grumpy) dogs, but she has been nothing but friendly with them and very respectful when they give her warning growls. Chelsea seems to be in excellent physical shape and easily went on a brisk two-mile walk last night and a slightly shorter walk this morning. She could use a refresher on the leash, though, and is quite enthusiastic about being out in front. She has also enjoyed investigating the yard. Chelsea slept quietly in her crate overnight and appears (not surprisingly) to be house-trained. She is responsive to basic verbal commands (“sit,” “back up,” “no”/”un-uh”, etc.). She also has a lovely beagle voice, which she has already used to express her dislike of northern Virginia traffic, say hello to neighborhood dogs, and announce people walking by or at the front door. Stay tuned for more information on Chelsea as we get to know her better!

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.

Delila

I’m Available!

Age: 3 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 31 MAY 2014: Delila and Odie came to their foster home one week ago and had completely different responses.  They arrived while I was out and were spending time in the yard with my husband.  Immediately upon my stepping into the yard, Delila ran across the yard to come greet me.  Odie on the other hand, snuck up to me, let me pet him and then found the best hiding place in the yard.  One week later, Delila remains her lovey self, and Odie has really opened up.

Delila is a real lovey girl – she makes it clear when she wants attention.  She accompanies her attention seeking with little cries.  One could almost think she was unhappy, but the wiggling body and tail show otherwise.  She is a confident little girl and is a good companion to Odie.  She sleeps quietly all night in a kennel with Odie.  Delila is a big cuddler, but isn’t (yet anyway) a big kisser.  She loves to run and play, Odie being her best playmate.  She is also good with the cats and the cats aren’t fearful of her.  I can’t really comment on house training yet – we did have a couple of accidents last weekend, but that can just be the stress of a new situation.  She is a fast eater, but isn’t food aggressive.  Loves treats – of course.

24 May 2014: Delila recently moved into a foster home. Here’s a VIDEO of her with her current foster brother, Odie.

20 May 2014: Delila’s vetting has been completed, and she is now available for adoption!

Original info: Delila is a 3-year-old beagle girl who will be available for adoption after her vetting is completed.  She is very friendly and good with other dogs but was a stray in Louisa County, Virginia, so her history is unknown.

Edith Ann

Adoption Pending!

Age: 5 years

Gender: Female

22 MAY 2014: Edith Ann is definitely all beagle! Very happy, curious, and active. She is house trained! She loves meeting people and dogs of all kinds on our walks. She is a real delight!

23 MARCH 2014: After a few weeks in a great foster home, Edith Ann figured out how to climb the fence, so she is in boarding for now to ensure her safety. She will need a forever home with a privacy fence or no fence (plus walks!). Also, prior to her fence-climbing adventures, we found out that Edith Ann is good with cats!

Original info: Edith Ann is a newcomer to BREW from Rockbridge County, Virginia.  She was found as a stray.  Edith Ann is very people and dog friendly.  She is thought to be about 5 years old and weighs 20 pounds.  She will be ready for adoption after she gets some work done at our favorite vet.

Stitch

Stitch

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 3 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 2 APRIL 2014: Stitch is a sweet, loving, gentle, funny little beagle. He loves meal time and does a full-body-wag dance when he know it is coming. While he is not much a of barker, he does like to make the occasional editorial comment in a low woof.  He loves other dogs and is bereft when he cannot greet every single one. He is still a bit shy around people but will warm up if the person is patient and lets Stitch make the approach.

24 MARCH 2014: What a difference a week makes! Stitch came to his foster house a week ago very shy and fearful. Even the sound of the coffee maker sent him running for cover. Stitch had made great progress in short time. Stitch has mastered the stairs, the doggie door, crate training and with regular walks, is fully house broken.

Not only is Stitch smart but he is also incredibly sweet, gentle and just a beautiful beagle. He loves others dogs and is cat neutral. Stitch is still shy around people but warms up if he is allowed to do so on his own terms.

Stitch loves following his foster brother beagle around, having his tummy rubbed and is a sweet cuddler. He walks well on his leash, enjoys riding in the car and absolutely loves the dog park where he can make friends and get his play on.

Stitch would do best in a house with another dog. His foster brother has been really important in showing him the ropes. He may be reluctant to do something (still a bit fearful) but if his brother does it, Stitch is all in. Also, Stitch is a fence-climber, but he has been fine in his foster home with a 6-foot wooden fence. He will need a home with a privacy fence or no fence (plus walks).

Original info: Stitch is a 3 year old male beagle.  Stitch is friendly but a little reserved and good with other dogs.  He came to the Louisa Co. Animal Shelter with a embedded collar that required stitches around his neck.  He is a fence climber. Stay tuned we get to know Stitch better!

Odie

Adoption Pending!

Age: 2 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 31 May 2014:  Odie and Delila came to their foster home one week ago and had completely different responses.  They arrived while I was out and were spending time in the yard with my husband.  Immediately upon my stepping into the yard, Delila ran across the yard to come greet me.  Odie on the other hand, snuck up to me, let me pet him and then found the best hiding place in the yard.  One week later, Delila remains her lovey self, and Odie has really opened up.

Odie is a very sweet little guy.  He is still a bit fearful, but given the progress he has made in a week, he should be a confident dog in no time.  Odie is a bit nervous at meal time, eating some running off, and then coming back for more.  He sleeps quietly all night in a kennel with Delila.  Odie loves to sit with me and cuddle.  He is also a kisser.  Odie doesn’t know about belly rubs yet.  When I try to roll him over to rub his belly he gets a bit scared, but does accept them.  He plays with or ignores the other dogs as their personality dictates.  He is also good with the cats and the cats aren’t fearful of him.  I can’t really comment on house training yet – we did have a couple of accidents last weekend, but that can just be the stress of a new situation.

24 May 2014: Odie recently moved into a foster home. Here’s a VIDEO of him with his current foster sister, Delila.

First impressions: Odie is a 2-year-old neutered male beagle.  Odie would do best with another dog.  He’s a little on the shy side but does warm up once he gets to know you.  He was a stray in Goochland County so his history is unknown. Stay tuned for more information on Odie!

Frosty

I’m Available!

Age: 6-7 years

Gender: Male

18 JULY 2014: Sweet Frosty was adopted earlier this year but has come back to BREW. He is moving into a foster home soon and would do best in a home with another dog.

15 FEBRUARY 2014: Frosty is one sweet, gentle and easy going beagle.  He loves people, especially children, other dogs and animal of all kinds.  Don’t let his gray face fool you, he is a young dog at heart. Frosty loves to play with his ball and will spend time entertaining himself by tossing it and then pouncing on it. He is happy to relax on his bed and equally excited to go for a long walk. Frosty is crate trained, house broken and walks beautifully on a leash.  He is a smart dog who easily learned stairs and mastered the doggie door.  Frosty is very curious, likes to inspect his surroundings and loves to look out the window. I think he would do well in any situation.

29 JANUARY 2014: Frosty is one terrific beagle! He is very gentle boy who just wants love and has a lot of love to give in return. He is a very sweet and is eager to learn and to please. Frosty is very motivated by treats and very responsive to training. He won’t take a treat from your hand, prefers if you put it on the floor in front of him. He is very sweet and snuggly but is not a kisser.

Frosty gets along well with all dogs, large and small and does great with cats as well. He is very curious about the world around him and calmly friendly to everyone he meets, young and old. He is very quiet for a beagle. I have only heard one bark, demanding to be let out of his crate after a long stretch. He is crate-trained, housebroken and terrific at walking on a leash.

He is a little bit timid but his confidence grows every day as he learns the routine and feels secure in his environment.

Original info: Frosty is a 6-7 year- old male beagle who is very friendly and does well with other dogs.  He was a stray at the Louisa County shelter so his history is unknown. Stay tuned for more information as we get to know him better!
