Ginny

I’ll be at the Sept 20 adoption day in Alexandria VA!

Age: 9 months (September 2014)

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 11 SEPTEMBER 2014: Ginny has been in my home for 2 weeks now.  She is crate-trained and almost completely house-trained with very few accidents.  She is sweet, playful, and very affectionate.  She whines a little when you first put her in her crate, but she settles down nicely.  She loves to play with toys but is also happy snuggling.

Original info: Ginny is a nine-month-old spayed female beagle who weighs just 17 pounds.  She is friendly but a little shy with other dogs until she gets to know them.  She was an owner give-up at the Culpeper Animal Shelter because they no longer had time for her. Stay tuned as we get to know Ginny better!

Thunder

I’m Available!

Age: 9 years (possibly a bit younger)

Gender: Male

Meet Thunder.  Thunder’s previous human was elderly and no longer able to care for him, so surrendered him to the Montgomery County, PA SPCA.  His age is listed as 9-almost-10 and they were not confident that they would find an adopter for him because of his age.  Lucky for him they reached out to BREW to see if we could help.

In his foster home for a week now, he seems younger than 9 or 10, maybe in the 6-8 range, although it is possible that he is just in terrific shape because, unlike many beagles, he is not overweight. He was clearly loved and well-cared for, too.

Although there has been a few “marking” incidents (not abnormal in a new place, especially with other dogs), Thunder is clearly house-trained.  He knows “sit” and “down”.  He does not like to be crated when people are home, and at night he likes to sleep with a person and will try to burrow under the blankets with a person.  If told “no”, he just waits until one is asleep then joins them, but he is not a bed- or blanket-hog.

So far Thunder has gotten along with dogs of all sexes and sizes, but his focus (and joy) is cuddling with a person, whether on the couch, in a comfy chair or in bed.  If not permitted to join a person on the couch, etc., he will find a comfy spot on the floor and settle.

Solo

I’m Available!

Age: Roughly 8-9 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 11 SEPTEMBER 2014: “Hello, I am Solo.  I am a red and white beagle boy who loves people.  I am good with dogs my size and smaller, however, big dogs frighten me so I bark at them.  I love to be with my beagle buddies here at Nana’s, but my favorite place to be is where ever Nana is located.  I am house broken, so I go outside to do my business.  I still get in trouble for marking.  Nana said that will pass after time.  I do not chew inappropriately and I really don’t play with toys.  My favorite things are long walks (I don’t pull on my leash), doing tricks for Nana and snuggling and being petted.  I will walk as long as you can keep going or I will sleep the day away.  I am easy going and love attention.  I am flexible.  I can get up early or sleep late, just let me be with you.”

Solo would be good in an apartment or in a home.  He would especially be good living with someone who is retired or works from home.

August 2014: Solo came to BREW from Powhatan County, Virginia just before his time ran out. He is a bit older and has what looks like an old eye injury leaving a blue spot on the eye, which we will be having a vet check out.  He is a gentleman of a beagle! His current caretaker says: I have to admit I am a little surprised, even a little in awe because this guy will not poop or pee in his kennel, knows the doggy door, will poop and pee on a leash and knows “sit”!!  He had been at my kennels a couple of days with no messes which I thought was unusual so I decided to take him out to see if he would go.  I now walk him every evening when I get to the kennels and he goes immediately.  He came in as a stray but must have been someone’s pet at one time.  He is not too happy about kennel life.  He still  needs vetting, but he is quiet and with all things considered, I think he would make a good apartment dog.

I’m Available!

Age: 7 months (September 2014)

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 12 SEPTEMBER 2014: Echo’s foster mom says she fits right in with the resident dogs and cat and is a really sweet girl. She is a cuddler and a people lover. She is a smart one, too!

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.

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

Adoption Pending!

Age: 3-4 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 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 loved it when Beauregard cleaned her ears at our last BREW event!). She is perfectly happy sleeping on the floor or on an area rug but 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 find her 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.

Frosty

Frosty

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 6-7 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 19 AUGUST 2014: Frosty is a real gem! He is playful, energetic, walks great on a leash, not too loud, and does NOT jump on furniture! A big plus for some folks. He does enjoy lap time and tummy rubs, but only on the floor. He also loves rolling around and playing with toys. He does like to chew, so have some chew sticks ready before you leave him home alone. He is house trained, but he won’t cross his legs for too long. Be ready to let him out right after a meal, and periodically. He’s great with other dogs but I believe he would be fine by himself, if he gets enough attention from a human friend. We have not crated him at our house, so we don’t know about that. [Note: Frosty proved to be crated-trained while staying in his previous foster home!]

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 might 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!
