Sandy

I'm Available and Looking for a Foster Home!

Age: 5 years

Gender: Female

6 NOVEMBER 2014: Sandy is a good little girl, crate trained and plays well with my dogs.  She does go to the door when she needs to go out but if you don't see her, she will pee on the floor, but I guess she can't help it, as she is getting over an infection.  The vet confirmed she is already spayed.

31 OCTOBER 2014: Sandy is an AKC-registered, five-year-old beagle girl. Her owner gave her up to the Abingdon Animal Shelter because she "yodels" (who doesn't enjoy a little beagle song?!?).  She's on the small side and estimated to be around 20 pounds.  The shelter said that she kept her kennel clean and always went potty when they took her out on a leash.  BREW's wonderful kennel volunteer has Sandy at home. She seems to be house-trained, enjoys playing with other dogs, and made herself right at home in her current foster mom's bed! Sandy appears to be spayed, but we do not have any medical records. She will be getting checked out by one of our vets soon!

Henry

I'm Available!

Age: 4-5 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE - 4 NOVEMBER 2014: Come one, come all, to see the Amazing White-Spotted Ear Beagle!  Henry has settled in nicely in his foster home.  He has done exponentially better with house training, with no accidents to report in over a month.  Henry enjoys playing with his foster beagle brothers - whether the grumps enjoy playing with him or not is a different story.  He loves Nylabones and Kongs filled with peanut butter, and sings a nice song for his dinner.  He settles in nicely at bedtime, most of the time not moving until the alarm goes off in the morning. He loves attention and will patiently sit with you as long as you want to give him love.  If you’re ready for a butt-waggling, high tail carrying, happy-go-lucky companion, look no further than the Amazing White-Spotted Ear Beagle!

25 SEPTEMBER 2014: Henry has been a welcomed burst of energy and joy in our household in the two weeks that we have known him.  He is hands-down the best dog we’ve ever dealt with in the car.  He loves playing inside and outside with our two grumpy, couch potato beagles.  He aims to please, appears to be very loyal to his pack, and loves head rubs. When it’s time to settle down, Henry does so very nicely and, sometimes, in unexpected and hilarious places like behind luggage in a closet.  He enjoys chewing, and we have been working on him to chew appropriate things like nylabones (which he really likes).  A simple, firm “No” is all he needs in order to move on to something more appropriate when he starts to show an interest in something he shouldn't be chewing.  Henry is sweet and calm around our 5 month old baby and has already completely earned our trust in that regard.

Henry is crated during the day while we are at work and usually keeps it dry.  He has had only a few accidents on longer work days.  Shorter times in the crate he always keeps dry.  He has also had some accidents when he is out of the crate, which is expected for a dog in a new house.  For not being in a home for quite some time, he is actually not doing too badly with the number of accidents.  We are working with getting him to learn the outside is where his business is done and he is getting better.

We think that Henry would do very well as a single pet as he seems to have no separation anxiety issues, but he (as with most beagles) would also reach his potential with a pack of humans and other dogs.  You know you can’t say no to that quizzical look, handsome spotted ears, and his classic beagle “AROOOOOOOO”!

Original info: Henry is a 4- to 5-year-old male who is super friendly and ready to brighten your day!!!  He is a short and chunky fellow that is ready to take on the world of all those rascally rabbits!!!  He was an owner give-up in Amelia County, Virginia, but no other history is known.  He is scheduled for vetting on Wednesday, June 11th (now vetted!) and will be available for adoption soon thereafter!

Ronnie

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 16 weeks (10 May 2014)

UPDATE - 8 May 2014: She is small, but such a love bug!  She is proficient with the doggy door and working on her house training.  Ronnie loves to play will toys and dogs and snuggle with people.

There is no question about it, The Rolling Stones puppies are full bred beagles.  Ronnie is TINY, but she is a spitfire and full of energy.  She may be the smallest, but she can outlast all of her brothers every time.  She loves to be held but she also runs around like a maniac.  She is cute as can be, but don't forget, little or not, she is still lots of work.

If you are interested in any of the "Rolling Stones" puppies, please submit an adoption application. Please note that we get A LOT of applications for puppies so your application MUST be accompanied by the $15 application fee.

Keith

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 16 weeks (10 May 2014)

Gender: Male

UPDATE - 8 May 2014: Keith is getting so big!  Pretty mellow for a puppy.  He is great with going potty outside and uses the doggy door.  He loves to play with our dogs and his sister.  He sleeps well in his crate, even for naps during the day.

There is not question about it, The Rolling Stones puppies are full bred beagles.  Keith is a curious guy.  He is always checking things out and looking for an adventure.  His favorite thing to do is to "hide" in the ivy.

If you are interested in any of the "Rolling Stones" puppies, please submit an adoption application. Please note that we get A LOT of applications for puppies so your application MUST be accompanied by the $15 application fee.

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!

Huck

Huck

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 4-5 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE - 24 JUNE 2014: "Hello! I am Huck, a small beagle.  I weigh between 17 and 18 pounds, and Nana calls me "Little Man".  I really like other dogs, and I like people too, but I'm a little skittish.  Nana believes someone was not so nice to me.  It took 3 days for me to let Nana pet me and only while she petted the other dogs.  It was about a week before I felt I could come looking for attention.  I have been here for less than a month, and now I jump on the bed in the morning to be petted before any of the others get a chance. I am still shy about cuddling and being held.  I want attention on my terms or I will try to get away from you.  I still want to be close to the door of the bedroom at night, so I can get out 1st if Nana gets up for any reason.  I'm learning to trust and will make a very patient person a wonderful pet given time and love."

Huck is still unsure of new things.  I don't believe he lived in a house before now.  We are still working on house training, and he is improving.  He did a lot of marking when he arrived, but that is no longer an issue here.

Huck loves food, walks, and all the dog toys.  He wants to be the first to get a treat.  He is learning to sit on command, but his bottom won't stay sitting for long. If he is well exercised, he will leave inappropriate things alone and will only chew his toys.  If he is bored, he gets into trouble. (Typical beagle!)  He loves to play with the other dogs and is always friendly.  He walks well on a leash.  One thing that scares him some, when he is on a leash, is going through doors.  He needs encouraging with this.  As long as the other dogs go with him, he will go in or out with no problem, but if he is just with me, he balks at entrances.  We are working on this.  I think Huck would do best in a home with another dog.

Original info: Huck is a 4- to 5-year-old male beagle who will be available for adoption after his vetting is completed [update: Huck is now vetted!].  This tiny tike is very friendly and good with other dogs but was a stray in Louisa County, Virginia, so his history is unknown.

Susie Q

Susie Q

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 3-4 years

Gender: Female

29 August 2014: Susie Q has now been in her foster home for two weeks, and she is a delightful girl to have around! She seems to have never met a stranger – my husband was on a trip when she arrived, and she greeted him like an old friend when he came home a week and a half later. Susie absolutely loves going for walks and has already started to slim down a bit. She does pull on the leash and gets very excited if a squirrel, bird, or deer crosses her path (I’d guess the same would be true for bunnies!); you need to keep a firm hand on the leash to be ready to hold on. She also perks up when she sees people or other dogs and is happy to accept pats from anyone who stops.

My dogs have warmed up to Susie, although they are not always accepting of the kisses she tries to give them. She is perfectly happy sleeping on the floor or on an area rug, but she will periodically sneak into an unoccupied dog bed. Susie is fairly low-key in the house (at least with two walks a day), and I typically snoozing somewhere near me or in the next room. She has shown no interest in the furniture other than putting up her feet to say hi. She has gotten better with her house-training already, but she does not signal when she needs to go, so we are working on getting her on a schedule. We crate her on days we work away from home and during the night. She was unhappy about being crated downstairs at night, but has slept peacefully since her crate was moved to the bedroom. Susie does get excited to get out of the crate when we get home and in the morning and will bark and howl some. Other than that, she is pretty quiet, apart from the occasional bark in the yard or at a critter she sees on a walk.

Susie Q was originally aged at 5-6 years old, but our vet estimated her to be closer to 3, and I had also guessed her to be a bit younger based on her energy on walks and a mouthful of nice teeth. I think she is the perfect mix of active outside and low-key inside and would be a fantastic addition to a household with at least one person to walk her daily.

18 AUGUST 2014: Susie Q is one cute, happy beagle girl! She arrived in her foster home yesterday and has already started to settle in nicely. She is a little short-legged and a somewhat chubby 25 pounds. Her new fitness routine started yesterday, and she seems to enjoy walks and cruising the backyard. Susie rode nicely in the car and kept her crate dry overnight. She seems to have a clue about house-training and has pottied each time she has been let out in the yard and on walks. She has had a few accidents, but she seems to be honing in on smells left by previously not-quite-housetrained foster dogs.

Susie likes human attention and gives gentle kisses, but she is not 100% confident and will sometimes hit the floor/ground if you move too suddenly over her head. She has shown little interest in our cats other than a few sniffs, and she impressed me by letting one sniff her all over right after she arrived. Susie’s three canine foster brothers, 15-, 30-, and 65-pound mutts, have not been overly welcoming, but she has taken it in stride and quickly learned to give them some space. She definitely aspires to be a counter-surfer but is too short to do so. She has, however, already proven to be good at sneaking, very quietly, around our (now reinforced) dog barrier in attempts to explore the basement (home of the cat food and boxes).

All-in-all, Susie Q is a sweet, gentle girl who seems to mostly have the hang of house living. More to come once we know her a bit better!

Original info: Susie Q is a 5- to 6-year-old beagle girl who will be available for adoption after her vetting is completed [update: Susie Q is now vetted!].  She is very friendly and sweet and is great with other dogs and small children.  Susie Q was a stray in Madison County, Virginia so her history is unknown.

Bowser

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 3 years

Gender: Male

2 NOVEMBER 2014: Meet Bowser!  His favorite things are rolling in the grass, food and treats, belly rubs, rolling in the grass, telling stories (i.e., howling), and did I mention rolling in the grass??  He also likes to play with his foster brothers...when they'll cooperate.  He is currently in a condo but I think he would really like a fenced yard where he can run (and roll!).  He is energetic but he also likes to nap, so I'd characterize him as between "high energy" and "couch potato." He is incredibly friendly and sweet.  He is 95% housetrained; he still very occasionally has peeing accidents.  That usually happens on days when we don't follow our normal schedule.  During the work day, he is crated and he does fine in his crate.  At night, he generally chooses to sleep in his crate but I don't close the door so he can come and go at will. The main thing we're working on is his howling.  He is pretty vocal, mostly when I just get home and he is let out of his crate and when I'm getting his dinner.  He used to be more vocal, but he's gotten over a fair amount of it.  He definitely settles down in a crate and stops howling when he's crated.  He is a great little guy and just looking for his family who will love him forever.

Original info: Bowser is a 3-year-old neutered male beagle who is fully vetted and ready to go!!  He was an owner give-up because he didn't hunt.  He is friendly, a little submissive and gets along great with small children and other dogs.

Frosty

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 6-7 years

Gender: Male

18 JULY 2014: Sweet Frosty was adopted earlier this year but has come back to BREW through no fault of his own. 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!

Mistletoe

Mistletoe

I've Been Adopted!

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!
