Chelsea

I’m Available!

Age: 9 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 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

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!
