Michelle

I'm Available!

Age: 2-3 years

Gender: Female

QUICK UPDATE - 20 OCTOBER 2014: Michelle recently got back from a one-week "vacation" in another BREW foster home, where she had a blast playing with Charlie! She also enjoyed meeting lots of people and other dogs at Beaglefest. Back at her foster home, she continues to be playful, wishing the somewhat grumpy dogs (and even the cats) would play with her more, but she loves a good nap - sometimes perched on the back of the couch like a cat - or snuggle in a lap.

28 SEPTEMBER 2014: Michelle is having a great time in her foster home! This weekend she participated in a 5K dog walk and loved it, sniffing at least 90% of the route, and she was excellent with all the dogs she met, many of which were much larger than her. She hasn’t had any accidents in the week she’s been here, and is still fairly quiet. Michelle does bark and whine some when she’s ready to get out of her crate, and she will howl some at critters in the yard and on walks. She’s proven trust-worthy when left out unattended for short periods of time, although she did make a nest on the people bed once. We’ve also found something she likes better than snuggling on the couch – snuggling on the couch between two people! Michelle is a good mix of energy levels – she’s always up for a walk and has occasional bursts of energy – often to play with toys, but she seems to always be up for a good nap on the couch, too!

22 SEPTEMBER 2014: Michelle has been in her foster home for just over a day, but she is already very comfortable and a joy to have around. She is absolutely adorable and very snuggly. Michelle is about average height for a beagle but has very delicate features and weighs about 20 pounds soaking wet. She has gotten along nicely with our three dogs (15-65 pounds) and has mostly ignored the cats. Thus far, her favorite things are to nap on the couch (preferably with a human) and explore the yard. She also seems to enjoy walks but could use a little practice on the leash. She had not had any accidents and will potty both in the yard and on a leash. She slept soundly through the night in her crate in our bedroom, and I have yet to hear her bark. Michelle is a great catch!

Original info: Michelle is a small 2-year-old female beagle who is fully vetted.  She is friendly and quiet and gets along great with other dogs.  She was a stray at the Madison County Animal Shelter, so her history is unknown.

Charlie

I'm Available!

Age: 2 years

Gender: Male

28 SEPTEMBER 2014: Charlie is a wonderful boy! Always happy, loves to snuggle, and loves to have children hug him! Loud noises do make him a little skittish and he only nibbles his food (must be his Basenji side). He also needs careful formal introductions to other dogs. He's ok with our Dottie, once they got to sniff each other and she let him know who is in charge around here! The dogs behind fences still get the bark and growl treatment. He is definately house trained, no accidents since he's been here! Yea!

Original info: Charlie is a  2-year-old neutered male, who is fully vetted.  He is very friendly and gets along good with other dogs.  He was a stray at the Louisa County Animal Shelter so his history is unknown.

Thunder

I'm Available!

Age: 9-10 years (possibly younger)

Gender: Male

23 AUGUST: 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: 8-9 years

Gender: Male

11 SEPTEMBER: "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.

Original info: Solo is and older guy from Powhatan, Virginia. He has what looks like an old eye injury leaving a blue spot on the eye.  His kennel 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.  This guy was at the end of his time!!!  He came in as a stray but must have been someone's pet at one time.  He in 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."

Snoopy

Adoption Pending!

Age: 1 year

Gender: Male

2 AUGUST 2014: 

Need help watching what you eat?  Snoopy's the pup to help you.  His creative begging will have you watch what you eat

He's settled in his foster home now and his personality is showing!  A one year old pup that thinks he's 5 months old.  He is medium energy and LOVES to play.  Trustworthy outside the crate....housebroken and doesn't chew anything except the stuffing in soft toys.  He has run of the house now. I've baited him with shoes left out and he hasn't touched them.  He knows basic commands and gives great hugs.  He's a real character to have around and well-behaved.  I recommend a house without cats.   He does play rough so he'd have to be watched around small children as he may knock them over.  He's also a very good watchdog. He's alert and gives out a great AAARRROOOO!

14 JULY 2014: Snoopy has recently moved into his foster home. He is a typical one year old with lots of energy.  Snoopy knows basic commands, sit, out, stay, and shake, and walks well on lead.  He does well with other dogs but can be annoying, as he insists on playing most of the time.  Because he plays rough, I don't think he'd do well with cats, but he has not been put to the test.  He seems to enjoy snuggling with foster sister, Elsie, though (see photo below)! More to come as he settles in!

Colleen

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 3 years

Gender: Female

QUICK UPDATE - 13 MAY 2014: Colleen's sister has been adopted, but she loves, loves, loves to play with her new foster brother, Gunner, who is also available for adoption from BREW!

30 MARCH 2014: Colleen is a very happy little – well at 30 pounds, not so little – beagle girl.  She came to her foster home a week ago with Delaney.  They both settled in very quickly.  Colleen is the more confident of the two, but she still has moments of being unsure of what is going on (If I go out do I get to come back in? or Not sure I want to go in that room).  Of course, meal time and treats bring out the confident, happy little girl that she is.  She does eat fast, but rare is the beagle that doesn’t.  Colleen is also housetrained.  She hasn’t started to signal at her foster home – and we get the crew out fairly frequently whether they ask or not.  So far, she has spent her time cuddled with a person or sister Delaney.  Of course, the weather this weekend hasn’t been the best for going outside to explore.  She isn’t a big barker, but does occasionally have a conversation with me. She gets along well with the dogs in the house and the cats are fine with her too.  She will bark at the cats a bit and wag her tail in play and they just look at her as if to say not interested - but she doesn’t make them wary or uncomfortable.  Colleen and Delaney slept quietly in the kennel their first night here but graduated to the bedroom when I realized they are housetrained.

27 MARCH 2014: They have only recently moved into a foster home, but Colleen's foster mom reports that she and her sister, Delaney are very sweet, seem to be house-trained, and are cat-tested and approved!

Original info: Colleen, a sweet tri-color beagle girl of 30 pounds and 3 years, came to BREW from Lexington, VA. She is very comfortable with people and loves to look deep into your eyes. She gets along well with other dogs and walks nicely on lead (however, like most beagles, will pull when she gets a scent). She travels well in her crate, keeps it clean, and keeps quiet. Colleen would be a shoe-in for Miss Congeniality if it weren't for her rescue partner, Delaney. Between the two of them it is a photo-finish.

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!

Macie

I'm Available!

Age: 2-3 years

Gender: Female

QUICK UPDATE - 21 OCTOBER 2014: Macie continues to wait for her forever home by constantly wagging her tail, playing with her toys and chasing her foster beagle sis around the yard. Her favorite toy is a stuffed hammerhead shark (see pic!).

5 OCTOBER 2014: Macie has been with us for two weeks and continues to impress. She has kept her crate clean and has not had any accidents in the house. She gets along well with our beagles and cats. She does like to chew and we sometimes need to remind her to limit that to her toys. She is extremely friendly and enjoys having her ears or belly rubbed. Macie also travels well in the car.

Original info: Macie is a 2- to 3-year-old female beagle who will be available for adoption after her vetting is completed [update: Macie is now fully vetted!].  She is friendly and good with other dogs but was a stray in Amelia, Virginia, so her history is unknown.

Frederic III

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 2 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE - 20 MARCH 2014: Frederic is one sweet beagle boy! He is house trained and crate trained. He loves to play with toys and other dogs as well as cuddle with people. He likes to fetch, too! He is no stranger to furniture, so I'm sure he was someone's pet. He is pretty quiet, but he does have a nice little low bay when he is happy or hungry. We are working on our leash manners and he has shown great improvement.

Original info: Frederic III was the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire back in the mid-1400's.  Now his spirit has returned to us in the body and mind of this beautiful beagle boy.  Frederic was found by a vet in Baltimore.  After scanning him for a microchip they found he had formerly been in the care of the Baltimore shelter.  He was returned to the shelter and we got him bailed out.  Frederic is about 2 years old and appropriately energetic.  He really doesn't have good leash manners but that seems to stem from his overall enthusiasm for everything.  He loves people, but we won't know about dogs, cats or kids until we get him into a foster home.  He rode very nicely from shelter to kennel (about 90 minutes) and left his crate clean and dry.
