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

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!

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!

Mistletoe

I’m Available!

Age: 2-3 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 22 JULY 2014: Mistletoe is aptly named as she is a very affectionate dog. Her favorite place to be is snuggled next to the nearest human or dog available. She loves to give kisses and receive belly rubs. She has a lot of energy so will probably do better with an individual or family that is more on the active side. She loves to play, balls are her favorite, but she can be a little shy in new environments. She loves the dog park where she can run around and sniff.  She is crate trained and almost completely house trained but still does occasionally have an accident.  She is very quiet for a beagle, only barking at normal dog things (people at the door, bunnies in the yard).  She gets along very well with kids and with other dogs and may do better in a house with another dog. She is a delight to have in our house and would make a great addition as someone’s forever pet.

21 December 2013: Mistletoe is such a sweet girl but inhales her food.  She is a little on the thin side so she has missed a few meals.  Guess she is taking the advantage of getting a meal.  Mistletoe came in with 6-month-old Blue and could possibly be her mother.

8 December 2013: Mistletoe is a 2-3 year-old female beagle. She is super friendly, good with other dogs, and has a gorgeous beagle bay.  Mistletoe came into the shelter with Blue as a stray, so her history is unknown. Stay tuned for more information as we get to know her better!
