Ronnie

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 16 weeks (10 May 2014)

Gender: Female

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. We strongly recommend that you submit that fee via Paypal to avoid delays!

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

I’m Available!

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.

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!

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!

Dimples

Dimples

I’ve Been Adopted!


Age: 5-6 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 3 FEBRUARY 2014:  Dimples is a fabulous little guy.  He packs a lot of happiness and wiggles into his 17 pounds.  Yes, he is a little guy too.  Which is great since I want to pick him up and cuddle him frequently.  He is great with all of the dogs in the house – ranging in age from six to twelve.  He plays when approached but doesn’t bother the couch potatoes.  The four cats in the house were comfortable with Dimples from the start.  Some new fosters will cause the cats to hiss and run – but they accepted Dimples from the start.

Dimples is also smart.  He learned the routines of the house easily and is making progress on his manners.  He also seems to understand that he needs to do his business outside, but he hasn’t yet done his own signaling as he just follows the other dogs out.  He is a fast eater, but doesn’t try to steal the other dogs’ food.

Original Info: Dimples is a 5-6 year-old male beagle. He was picked up as a stray in Amelia County.  He is small, good with other dogs, and very friendly, but his history is unknown. He will be available for adoption once he is fully vetted. Stay tuned as we get to know Dimples better!

Krista

I’m Available!

Age: 4-5 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 21 MARCH 2014: Krista has been in my home now for 3 months.  She is crate-trained and almost completely house-trained.  When it comes to human contact, she is still a little on the shy side with some good days and some bad.  There are days when she is excited that she jumps on me (from behind), is approachable, and sits nicely for you to pet her, and there are days when she is afraid and will avoid you.  She now goes in her crate very nicely on her own.  She loves to play with toys and is great with the other dogs.  She plays often and curls up nicely with the rest of the pack.  Krista is a follower, so she would do best in a home with another dog.

Original info: Krista came to BREW from Louisa County, VA, where she was found as a stray. She is a little reserved and does better with another dog. We will know more about Krista once she moves into a foster home. Stay tuned for more info!

Buck

I’m Available!

Age: 5-6 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 23 JULY 2014: Buck wants to know why he hasn’t been adopted yet! Maybe it’s because he’s a little older than some of the beagles here? But that shouldn’t mean he can’t go to a nice home. He’s a very sweet boy. Buck loves to go for walks. Sometimes he will pull on his leash, but that is because he is so excited to be outside, sniffing the ground or meeting other dogs. Buck also LOVES to be pet. He will sit by your side while you pet his head. If you stop, he’ll nuzzle against you or try to climb into your lap. Buck is great in his crate. We’ve never heard a peep from him in there. He loves to just snooze in his crate. Buck is practically housetrained. He hasn’t had an accident in two months. Buck has been a very good houseguest. I think, though, that Buck would love to find his forever home!

10 MARCH 2014: Meet Buck! He is a mellow fellow and all around nice boy. Buck, known as Bucky, joined our household two weeks ago and has been a perfect gentleman. He walks very nicely on leash. Sometimes he’ll get excited if he catches a scent or sees another dog that he wants to say hi to. Generally, he’ll just follow along to where you want to go.

Buck seems to have a clue about house training. He tried to mark the first day in our house, but hasn’t done that since. He is fine in his crate and considers it his den. Sometimes he’ll bring all his stuffed toys into his crate and sleep with them. Bucky knows how to take a treat gently from your hands. He was also very patient and let me clean his ears, bathe him and cut his nails, all without a peep.

He gets along with our cats and pretty much ignores them. Buck likes being around humans. He will follow wherever the humans go and sit patiently for us to pet him or rub his ears. But Buck is also fine just hanging out in a dog bed or his crate and snoozing or playing with a stuffed toy. We took Buck on a trip to New York City and he was fine with all the people and city noises. He even enjoyed watching ice hockey at Bryant Park. I think Buck would make a great addition to a household looking for a sweet, easygoing beagle.

Original information: Buck came to BREW from Madison County, VA, where he was found as a stray. He is very sweet and low key, and does well with other dogs. We’re still getting to know him, but Buck’s recent weekend transporter reports that he is a vocal guy. Stay tuned for more info!

Jet

Adoption Pending!

 

Age: 1-2 years

Gender: Male

10 MARCH 2014: Jet has been with us now since New Year’s Day. He is a very sweet boy who lives for belly rubs and human snuggles. Jet loves to give kisses, is a good kitchen “helper”, and loves to greet anyone who comes in the door! He does not know a human stranger, and everyone he meets is his friend immediately. We do not have kids, but he did very well meeting a few families with children at the adoption event.

He is house and crate trained and has pretty good house manners (minimal begging, no chewing, etc.). His one downside is that he does have some jealousy issues with other dogs. He generally gets along okay with our two beagles, but we do think he’d be best as an only dog. All things considered, Jet is a fantastically well adjusted dog. Some family will be very lucky to win his love forever! We promise you will never be better loved.

19 JANUARY 2014 – Note from foster home: While Jet LOVES the company of humans, he prefers to have them to himself and would be best adopted into a home with no other dogs.

17 DECEMBER 2013 – News from a great temporary foster! We adopted a BREW Beagle a year ago and he has been a fantastic addition to our family. To try to give back a little for the great work that BREW does, we offered to take one of the Beagles at the vet for a day on the weekend.

I have three children, ages 8, 7 and 5 and they rose at 5:30am they were so excited to go get Jet for the day. (Note to self, don’t tell the kids before breakfast next time!)

We picked him up at the Veterinary Clinic at about 10:30am. He came out and howled a greeting to us. I thought he might keep on barking but he stopped as soon as we went outside. He pulled me towards a tree and tinkled. Then he looked at me as if to say “What’s up? Where are we going?”

I sent the kids into the car and he hopped up with no assistance. On the way home he sat up in the front seat and just looked out. He was happy to be in the car and no trouble at all.

We got him home and he met my beagle Yahoo. They sniffed each other and then largely ignored each other. Jet went to the door and I interpreted that as wanting to go out. He went outside and relieved himself, then came back in. He clearly knew how to go outside. He also knows how to sit, as when I told my dog to sit for a treat, Jet sat down immediately. This dog was clearly someone’s dog at one point.

For the rest of the day he was happy to nap and be pet by my kids. When he’s sleeping and you call his name to get up, he rolls over with all fours in the air for belly scratches.

Very gentle boy. He was able to tolerate the mild rough behavior of my children with no problems.

If I had more room, I’d have kept him. This dog will be at home in almost any situation. Very calm and cuddly.

Original info: Jet came to us from the shelter in Dublin, VA. He was surrendered to the shelter in early November and thankfully BREW got him out in time. Jet is thought to be 1 – 2 years old and is friendly with both dogs and humans. In the case of humans he greets them with a wagging tail and a big, wet tongue in the face. Jet is at our favorite vet clinic now getting some work done, but will be ready for adoption in by 11/25. Wouldn’t you like to make your home his furever home?

Special thanks to Nicole Abramson who brought Jet to us from Dublin!
