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.

Hamish

Available and Looking for a Foster Home!

Age: 2-3 years

Gender: Male

1 SEPTEMBER 2014: Hamish has completed his heartworm treatment and is now available for adoption! We we will know more about him when he moves to a foster home.

6 AUGUST 2014: Unfortunately, Hamish and his buddy, Freya, came to BREW with a number of health issues (heartworm positive, Lyme disease antibodies, hookworms, and Giardia). We’re working with our wonderful vets to get them healthy, and they will be moving into foster homes in a few weeks.

Needy beagles like Freya and Hamish are the ones who need BREW most, and we’re proud to have gotten them to safety and on the road to recovery. The truth is, however, that these desperately needy beagles are expensive to care for, and it’s only through our supporters’ generous donations that week can keep saving beagles like these. If you would like to help us offset the cost of Hamish’s care, please use the “sponsor” section to the lower right or click HERE. Thank you!

Original info: Hamish is new to BREW as of August 1st! He was a stray in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Hamish is 2 -3 years old, about 20 pounds, and people- and dog-friendly. He whined a bit in his crate, but he kept the crate clean for his 2 hour ride. Stay tuned as we get to know Hamish!

A big BREW “Arrrrrroooooo!” and “Thank You!” to Friends of Hamish and Freya for their generous donations: Ingrid Carlson, John and Rita Koch, Cary Nugent, James Grant, Roy Cox, Virginia Brooks, Oscar Merida, Megan West, Melissa Rohall, Thomas Calvo, Nancy Kline, Maureen Edwards, Virginia Mertzig, John Doyle, Ruth Davis, Michelle Connors, Donna Reynolds, Robin Van Mechelen, Leo Leparski, Nan Phillips, Sherman and Pamela Litten, Rick Fisher, Andrew Starzyk, Christine Pinson, Robert Simms, Elyse McCoy, Lucy Wise-Gladwell, Karen Gavidia, Melinda Way, Holland Bell, Mary Sokolowski, Carole Spurgin, Frances Battey, Elena Boshier, Michelle Walter, William Gray, Peter Frecknall, Gary Abosch, Dennis King for TSS Enterprises, Mary Scalone, Donelle Mayausky for Tray Me, Glenn Gable, Helen Barker, Michele Aimone, Rhonda Lehtinen, Scott Finkelstein, Heather Field, Kelly Weiss, Joan Vaughan, Cheri Davidson, Margaret Stahl, Megan O’Karma, Carol Bull, Michele Crecca, Jennifer Pesanelli, Terry Phillips, Sandra Phipps, Margaret Murphy, Charles Arismendi, Kevin Levanduski, Margaret Murphy, Monica Berlin, Brandi Hensley, Sandra Toscano, Richard Blevins, Jenifer Schreiner, Erin McGeever, Peggy Anuszewski, Robert Breece, Edward Farber, Stuart Weisberg, and Beth Cousino.

Freya

Available Soon!

Age: 3 years

Gender: Female

1 SEPTEMBER 2014: Freya is feeling much better but still has a ways to go with her heartworm treatment, so she is not yet available for adoption.

6 AUGUST 2014: Unfortunately, Freya and her buddy, Hamish, came to BREW with a number of health issues (heartworm positive, Lyme disease antibodies, hookworms, and Giardia). We’re working with our wonderful vets to get them healthy, and they will be moving into foster homes in a few weeks.

Needy beagles like Freya and Hamish are the ones who need BREW most, and we’re proud to have gotten them to safety and on the road to recovery.

If you would like to help us offset the cost of Freya’s care, please use the “sponsor” section to the lower right or click HERE. Thank you!

Original info: Freya is new to BREW as of August 1st! She was a stray in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and our vet estimates she is about 3 years old and 20 pounds.  She is very people- and dog-friendly, rides quietly in the car, and didn’t leave any messes in her crate after her 2 hour ride. Stay tuned as we get to know Freya!

A big BREW “Arrrrrroooooo!” and “Thank You!” to Friends of Freya and Hamish for their generous donations: Ingrid Carlson, John and Rita Koch, Cary Nugent, James Grant, Roy Cox, Virginia Brooks, Oscar Merida, Megan West, Melissa Rohall, Thomas Calvo, Nancy Kline, Maureen Edwards, Virginia Mertzig, John Doyle, Ruth Davis, Michelle Connors, Donna Reynolds, Robin Van Mechelen, Leo Leparski, Nan Phillips, Sherman and Pamela Litten, Rick Fisher, Andrew Starzyk, Christine Pinson, Robert Simms, Elyse McCoy, Lucy Wise-Gladwell, Karen Gavidia, Melinda Way, Holland Bell, Mary Sokolowski, Carole Spurgin, Frances Battey, Elena Boshier, Michelle Walter, William Gray, Peter Frecknall, Gary Abosch, Dennis King for TSS Enterprises, Mary Scalone, Donelle Mayausky for Tray Me, Glenn Gable, Helen Barker, Michele Aimone, Rhonda Lehtinen, Scott Finkelstein, Heather Field, Kelly Weiss, Joan Vaughan, Cheri Davidson, Margaret Stahl, Megan O’Karma, Carol Bull, Michele Crecca, Jennifer Pesanelli, Terry Phillips, Sandra Phipps, Margaret Murphy, Charles Arismendi, Kevin Levanduski, Margaret Murphy, Monica Berlin, Brandi Hensley, Sandra Toscano, Richard Blevins, Jenifer Schreiner, Erin McGeever, Peggy Anuszewski, Robert Breece, Edward Farber, Stuart Weisberg, and Beth Cousino.

Buddy

I’m Available!

Age: 8-9 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 24 AUGUST 2014: Buddy is on his second foray through BREW, having been returned by his adoptive family after five years.  He settled back into his foster home with aplomb.  He is a very quiet dog; he rarely barks, doesn’t run around like a crazy man, and likes to curl up by my feet wherever I happen to be.  He is housetrained and except for one attempt to mark within the first hour of him being back in his foster home, he has not had a single accident.  (He is also crate-trained but he doesn’t particularly like his crate.  Since he is housetrained and doesn’t get into mischief, he has free reign of the house when I’m gone, so the crate isn’t really an issue.)  He doesn’t get on the furniture.  He sits (both on command and on his own) like a champ – at dinner time, for treats, to get his ears scratched (both by me and by all of the folks that we meet out-and-about).  He walks well on a leash; not much pulling (although he can get a bit stubborn when I want him to move on if a spot smells particularly good).  He is mostly a couch – well dog bed – potato, but he does play with toys occasionally and with me sometimes too.  He is good with the kids that we have met on our walks, even the younger ones.  He did have back surgery a bit ago, and while that doesn’t seem to bother him (and our orthopedic vet said he is fine), he doesn’t like it when other dogs pounce around on his back.  (Can’t say I blame him.)  So I don’t rough-house with him and I would say that it would be best for him to not be in an environment where that is a possibility.  He gets along well with his foster brothers (both of whom are on the older side and don’t rough-house anymore), although he and one of his foster brothers occasionally get snarky with one another about toys (mostly because his foster brother believes all toys are his and will steal things from Buddy).  Oh, and Buddy is a rather hairy beagle.  I think he’s mixed up with a longer-haired breed (like a Golden Retriever or a Husky).  He’s very soft, but very furry…and he’s got a great whiskered chin.  In short, Buddy is a sweet, polite, quiet, hairy little guy who will make someone/some family a great companion.

22 JULY 2014: Buddy is an adorable beagle boy with five years of pet experience under his belt. He was originally adopted from BREW in 2009 and has recently come back to the rescue. Buddy is moving into a foster home soon (the same one as in 2009), so stay tuned for more information once he’s settled in!

Original info (September 2009): Campbell [now Buddy], 3-4 year old neutered male that is fully vetted and ready for a new home.  He is friendly and great with other dogs but was a stray at the Louisa Co Animal Shelter so his history is unknown.

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: Adult

Maggie is the amazing mom of the five “Walking Dead” puppies, and she has been busy taking care great of them (they are only seven weeks as of March 28th).
