Hoosier

Hoosier

I went to the Rainbow Bridge

Tribute from Hoosier's Foster Mom, December 2013: Hoosier came to our female household in May. He fit right in from the beginning. Given his medical problems and his early history, Hoosier could easily have become a cranky old fellow. Instead he was one of the most loving and cuddly beagles imaginable. He didn’t have the greatest balance or breathing capacity but he still raced me to his food right up until the end, He played with the girls until they became too rough then ignored them and took toys outside under his favorite tree.

The end came much too soon; he’d developed a very large inoperable abdominal mass that shortened his life, When life became too much trouble for Hoosier with too little joy to balance the problems, we went to the Rainbow Bridge together. I hope he’s playing and happy with all the beagles who have crossed before him; I came home with the wonderful memories we created together and the wish I could have held him and rubbed his chest for a while longer.

Profile, 23 July 2013: Hoosier is a senior male beagle (10 years) who gives new meaning to the words “laid back”. He’s a couch potato who enjoys being held and having his belly rubbed. He’s affectionate but not pushy. He will lay down whenever and wherever he wants and doesn’t seem to notice or worry anyone trying to get around him. This had led to being sat on and/or stepped on by one or another of his foster sisters – there are three of them. He’ll bark if he thinks they are too pushy but usually just ignores them. He will cuddle against them if the chance arises. Hoosier usually comes when called, especially when there is food or treats involved.The first night here (about 2 months ago), Hoosier was crated as a precaution. Unlike most beagles who take a few days to fit in, that was the last time he’s been crated unless travelling in the car.  He rides well and keeps the crate clean. He does have some minor urinary leakage problems and sometimes drools.Because of his medical issue Hoosier gets meds two to three times daily. One is put on his food, the others given to him in a Pill Pocket. He vigorously resists swallowing them without the Pill Pocket. One of the meds is to keep fluids from accumulating. According to the vet, this dosage of this med may vary depending on his current level of need. Because of this med, he needs outside access on a regular schedule. The dog door here works very well for him; he uses it at night as well as often during the day.Hoosier is a little wobbly, so he doesn’t sleep on the bed. It doesn’t seem to bother him and he happily cuddles when put on the bed to cuddle. Given the chance he will jump; I make sure he doesn’t jump or fall. He eats his food well. He follows as the others are fed then finishes off his food wherever it’s placed.This wonderful guy enjoys walking, likes to be outside and will often stretch out under a tree or next to the fence. But when it’s very hot out, He stays inside as the humidity affects his breathing. Hoosier does have some medical issues. He takes thyroid medication, Vetmedin and Enalapril for his heart condition as well as the furosemide.If you would like to give a senior beagle with some special needs a loving home in which to live out his life, this happy friendly little guy will return your care with unqualified love.Who's your buddy?  Who's your pal?   HOOSIER!!!! This tiny 10 yr young beagle boy arrived at BREW today.  He is quiet and oh so soft.  Very people friendly. His family lost their farm and he was left behind apparently tied to a tree.  He rode nicely in the crate, sitting up watching the scenery pass by or was he anxiously listening to the hockey game broadcasting from the radio?

Mitzy

I've Been Adopted !

Age: 14 years

Gender: Female

From our wonderful volunteer BREW Bob: Mitzy spent the last couple nights with Mason and I and has been a wonderful guest.  She rides well in the car with no crate required.  She walks well on the leash and does whatever she needs to do.  In the house she selects a dog bed or a chunk of carpet and sleeps a lot, although she is always ready for a walk or a good backyard sniff.   She eats like a beagle and has had no accidents in the house.  She would make a wonderful companion for someone who wants a laid back dog who just wants to be with her person.

Old Stuff: Wow, I as adopted in 2004 and figured I had a home for life. Hey - 7 years, you'd think it was permanent! But, mom and dad got divorced and neither of them could keep me.  I am so adorable, you would have expected a custody battle! But, here I am, back with BREW hoping for a better luck this time.

I am a great car beagle - rides of 6 hours are nothing to me, as long as I get the occasional potty break. I am quiet in the car and I get along with people and with other dogs.

Brutus

Adopted!

 

Gender: Male

Age: 13-14 years

NEW for July 4!  Brutus is very good with his house training.  No accidents in the house and he urinates basically as soon as he's out the back door.  He likes to run and seems much younger than his calendar age.  He rides well in the car without a crate.  He also rode well when crated, but that's to be expected.  He eats his special easy on the system dog food like a true beagle  He does sleep quite a bit, but we will too when we get to be his age.

Brutus is coming back to BREW though no fault of his own, sadly, his owner passed away. Brutus has been well taken care of and loved since he was adopted 6 years ago. His owners took care of a knee surgery for him and he has totally recovered from that. He does eat a special "easy on the stomach" canned food.

This is a totally sweet and loving boy!

Lonnie

I've been adopted!!

Gender: Female

Age: 12-13

Lonnie was adopted 6 years ago and returned because "Lonnie's getting older, requires more individual time and attention." Uh....DUH! Wouldn't you if you were that old?

Lonnie is very affectionate, gets along with all animals and children. She is crate trained. She does not like being left alone in strange environments. She loves one on one attention. She does not like being left outside alone - she is a house dog (AS ALL BREW DOGS ARE).

She sleeps or rests a lot and snores. She would be wonderful for seniors or a family with kids. She is very generous with attention.

Molly

Molly

I've been adopted!

Age: 7-8 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE, 10/23/2011: In the six weeks Miss Molly has been with us, her personality has blossomed, and she seems like a new, and younger, dog. She wanted us to send an update so those looking to add a sweet, gentle, and spunky lady to their family could learn more about her. Molly has come to terms with all three of the resident dogs, and she has recently started to initiate play time on occasion. She especially loves to engage her smallest foster brother in a game of chase, trading off who does the chasing. She has also discovered the dog toy basket and sometimes, when she thinks no one is looking, she will pull out most of the toys to find a good one to shake around. Molly continues to love walks and has become a little more vocal in the yard, primarily to announce the trail of a squirrel or to converse with other neighborhood beagles. She is quiet in the house and has been going to bed in her crate with the door open for several weeks. Molly has improved on the leash and does especially well if she is the only dog on the walk. She will “sit” to go in and out of the house, and we are working on sitting and waiting at mealtime. Molly definitely wants to please her people, but sometimes food is too distracting! She loves attention, and she would really like to find a forever home with fewer pets so she can have more of you to herself!

09/18/2011  Miss Molly is a super sweet gal who loves walks and a good sniff in the yard just as much as she enjoys napping. She likes being around people and would be an excellent addition to relatively calm, moderately-active household. Molly is house- and crate-trained and will potty both in the yard and on a leash.

Molly has been with us in her new foster home for a little over a week, and she has become noticeably more comfortable with each new day. She is on the shy side, but she warms up quickly with a few kind words and a good head scratch (she loves a good ear scratch or belly rub, too!) – then she wags her tail and often flashes her beautiful smile! Overall, Molly gets along well with the three male mutts (16 to 65 pounds) in her foster home, although she does not like it if they are overexcited near her or rush up to her face. Apart from a few sniffs, she has ignored the resident cats, and they have ignored her.

Molly is easily startled by loud noises (including barking and yelling), and it took her a few days to get the hang of our wood floors and stairs; she still walks very cautiously on the indoor stairs, but she often runs up and down the deck stairs. She still prefers not to walk on the tiled kitchen floor, but she seems to be adjusting to that as well. We have been crating her when we are gone for long periods of time and at night, but this is primarily to keep the resident dogs from bothering her; under different circumstances, I would be comfortable giving her free range of the house (after an appropriate adjustment period). Molly is very quiet in the house and sleeps through the night without a peep. She has shown off her beagle bark a few times in the yard, but this has been infrequent and always after the resident dogs start barking.

Molly is a champion napper, and she loves dog beds of all shapes and sizes (she doesn’t mind the couch either, if you’ll have her). Don’t let her age fool you, though; Molly likes to lead our pack on at least one, and often two, 20-minute walks daily, and she loves to cruise around the yard in search of the best smells. She will pull on the leash if you let her and may weave between your feet, but Molly is a good walker if you keep a firm hand on the leash. With some practice, she would make a great walking companion. She is not much for toys, but she does enjoy rawhide chews and an occasional gnaw on a Nylabone. Molly is a wonderful girl whom we enjoy having in our home, but she is ready to find her forever home!

Bernard AKA Butch

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 12 ish

Gender: Male

Hi! Butch here! Okay, I know BREW calls me Bernard, but I have been Butch for so many years, that my foster family just calls me that.  Let me tell you, things have been going great since I got here around Thanksgiving.  First off, I know all of you out there want to know one thing: and, it’s true! I have not had one accident since getting here... I am HOUSE TRAINED! But there is lots more to me than a dependable pup.

You may have noticed that I am an older gentleman.  Old age comes with baggage.  I have some arthritis, and it has affected my walking gait.  Because of that, I am not able to go up or down stairs and I must take medication every day to help me.  Foster Mom has taken me to the vet several times for reassessment, and while I am doing better, we are still adjusting dosages to see what will work best for me.  Right now, I take three medications each day and I am doing a lot better.  Nothing can reverse the damage that has been done, but we are working to let me be as comfortable as I can be.

I also had my teeth evaluated and cleaned.  Hoo-boy, does my mouth feel better! I eat dry kibble (the weight-management kind, please) and love treats, too.  I am at a good weight now and it is really important that my new family help me keep my weight down, so that I don’t stress my joints too much.

Updated 2/22/11:  Okay, that’s the “bad” news... but, if you’re still reading this, you may be wondering: What is it like to spend a day in my paws?  I am an easy-going, self-possessed beagle guy.  My former folks told BREW that I am crate-trained, but Foster Mom has never felt the need to crate me here.  I have been very trustworthy.  I get along well with the other doggie residents here, but I would be fine as an only dog, too. I might even like that better. All the loving for me! I really like to be near people, and sometimes, I get a little “talkative” if I can’t get to where they are in the house. Oh, and I also like to talk to the mail carrier... and school kids walking by... and... well, you get the idea! Foster Mom squirts me with water when I get a little too chatty.  Oh, have you noticed that I have the “not good with kids” icon?  Well, I would be fine with older kids... but the little ones are too much for me.  They are fast and unpredictable... and I am a plodding along kind of guy. But I am very friendly to all humans. At night, I like to sleep on a bed near the people’s bed.  I hope you won’t mind if I snore a bit. My tail is always wagging... I am a happy hound!

Check out my last adoption day: http://smilebox.com/playBlog/4d6a49344e546b7a4e6a673d0d0a&blogview=true

Bernard was adopted in 2002. Since then, he has been a well loved member of the family (and called "Butch"). Sadly, bad things happened to the family. The wonderful daughter tried to keep things together, but it became way too much for her.

Bernard is a low-key and happy boy. He needs to lose some weight, but he is a very nice dog!
