Elsie

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 1.5 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 14 JULY 2014: Elsie is in her foster home and doing well.  She needs work on housetraining and is very shy.  She has been in her foster home for a week and is just starting to warm up.  Other than that…she’s 16.2 lb of absolute cuteness!!! (She also seems to be getting along with her foster brother, Snoopy – see them snuggling in one of the photos below!)

Original info: Elsie is an approximately 1.5-year-old, small, petite female who weighs around 17 pounds.  She is extremely sweet and gentle but can be a little reserved and cautious at times.  She came in as stray in Amelia County, Virginia wearing cute little decorative collar, so she was probably someone’s pet but whether she was a house pet or not is unknown.  She also takes her time eating her dinner.  She is scheduled for vetting on Wednesday, June 11th and will be available for adoption soon thereafter!

Kobi

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 2 years

Gender: Male

ANOTHER UPDATE – 23 MARCH 2014: Kobi is a new foster home with no fence to be climbed.  He settled in very nicely with his 2 foster brothers.  He tries to get them to play but they’re older and not interested.  He likes his naps also.  With his feet up!

QUICK UPDATE – 21 MARCH 2014: Cute, little Kobi had settled nicely into a foster home over the past week. Unfortunately, he proved to be a fence-climber, so he is back in boarding for now to keep him safe. Kobi will need a forever home with a tall , non-chain-link fence or no fence at all (plus plenty of walks!). Also, during his brief stay in foster home #1, we found out that Kobi is good with cats!

Original info: Kobi is a 2-year-old male who will be available for adoption after his vetting is completed [update: Kobi is now vetted!].  This tiny little boy is very friendly and is good with other dogs and small children.  He was a stray in Louisa County, Virginia so his history is unknown.

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.

Woody

I’m Available!

Age: 4-5 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 14 AUGUST 2014: Well, it’s been a while since I got my foster-human to do an update on me.  These humans, they’re a LOT of work, and some are REALLY tough to train!

I have been back with BREW since last November; can you believe nobody has snatched me up yet?!  Well, OK, I did need some “Beagle Boot Camp”, but my attitude is MUCH better, and I’m down to my ideal weight at 18 lbs. I don’t mean to sound conceited or anything, but I look GOOD!

I am doing really well in my foster home, but am still looking for the home that is mine FUREVER (as they say).  I am a strong-willed man, some humans have said I have a bit of “small dog syndrome” because I am on the small side, but that just makes me easier to snuggle, but if you stick to your guns I will listen, eventually.

I am house-trained, crate-trained and I loooooove car rides.  I live with other dogs, a couple cats and some full-grown humans.  I like to have my way and can be pretty adamant about it, so my foster humans do NOT think I would be a good match with the small humans, although teen-agers would probably work for me.

I can be loud, and if I want something (usually food) that I am not getting, I can keep it up for a while, but usually I “talk” rather than bark.  You say something to me, I say something back, etc., but I get the definite feeling that the humans don’t understand what I’m saying. *sigh* Being a beagle man is TOUGH!

I now have FULL furniture privileges, although I do get temporarily “evicted” sometimes because I still can get a little nippy towards other dogs if they try to steal my spot or my attention.

So, looking for a pint-sized guy who knows what he wants, and is looking for a warm lap, a soft bed and somebody to share walks (or playtime in the yard) with?  If check out BREW’s adoption process HERE.  If I don’t sound like your perfect match, there are lots of others “fish in the ocean” (or “beagles in the Rescue”, in this case), I just KNOW one of us would make you happy!

QUICK UPDATE – 28 FEBRUARY 2014: As you can see from Woody’s new photo, he is so proud to have “furniture privileges”, even if it is only when he receives permission! [This photo is now part of his gallery shown below!]

31 JANUARY 2014: Woody was adopted from BREW in 2010.  Unfortunately, circumstances have him looking for a new home.  Woody’s family had a baby, and Woody was jealous of the new family member and did not adjust well, so for the safety of all involved it was decided that Woody come back to BREW and we would find him a new home.

Woody has spent some time in “beagle boot camp”, both to work on weight-loss (he was a bit rotund) and his attitude.  Woody likes to be the one to control who is allowed in the house, and in his opinion, nobody that doesn’t live there should be allowed.  This behavior is being addressed in his current foster home with a combination of techniques, and progress is being made, but his adoptive home will need to be willing to continue working with this issue.

Woody is crate- and house-trained, and has not showed any tendencies toward chewing anything other than doggie appropriate toys.  He LOVES to cuddle and gets along pretty well with other dogs, although he will give warning “snaps” if there is food or if another dog is trying to intrude on his getting attention.

Woody is epileptic, but it is well-controlled with daily medication administered with his morning and evening meal.

He will need a home that is firm as he was accustomed to having things too much his own way, and will periodically challenge his humans just to see “if they really mean it” when he is told to do something like go in his crate or move/get off the furniture.

If you’re looking for a new four-footed family member, and think you have room in your heart and your life for Woody, contact BREW and ask for more information.

Ol’ Red

Ol’ Red

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 8 years

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 27 JANUARY 2014: Don’t let Ol’ Red’s name or age fool you, this “old” dog still has a of spunk!  He is a very happy dog who loves to go on walks and when his nose isn’t plastered to the ground after a scent, the rest of the time he is looking up adoringly at whoever is at the other end of the leash. He also likes to play with toys, mainly soft ones with squeakers and a few balls that also squeak, though in true beagle fashion, he is not a retriever. He is housetrained and walks well on the leash.  He loves to snuggle and though he is a small beagle (he’s twenty pounds when he’s soaking wet) he will make the leap onto the human bed to snuggle in someone’s warm spot.   He does well in the crate, keeping it dry while we are gone.  Though he prefers the weekends when he is allowed to sleep upstairs on a dog bed (he will go the whole night without incident), he also does well in the crate overnight, only barking for a few minutes before settling down to go to sleep.  He does very well with other dogs, sharing sleeping and feeding space without any problems and also plays very nicely with our dogs.  He has not been around any children as of yet.  Like most beagles, he does like to “counter surf” after any food that might be left out or in your hands, however, he does know sit and will sit and wait to be given a treat.  He is a very sweet, “middle” aged dog who would make a wonderful addition to any home.

Original Info: Ol’ Red is an 8-year-old, 24-pound beagle boy who came to BREW in early January 2014. This poor guy was surrendered to the shelter by his owner who simply “didn’t want him anymore.” Despite this, Ol’ Red is a very friendly guy. He was described as an “absolute sweetheart” at the shelter, and he has lots of love to give! During his transport, Red rode very quietly for 2 hours and kept his crate clean and dry. He will be available for adoption once he is fully vetted.
