Kobi

I’m Available!!

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 trys 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.

Ol’ Red

I’m Available!

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.

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!

Tina

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 5-6 years

Gender: Female

1 JANUARY 2014 UPDATE: Hi there!  I’m Tina, but my foster mom calls me Tink (short for Tinkerbell).  I like to watch squirrels & birds out the window and play with toys – especially the ones that squeak.  I’m a champion cuddler and I love belly rubs.  I’ve got a very girly howl, according to my foster mom, but I don’t use it very much; I’m usually pretty quiet.  I like to get in the trash – you never know if there might be something good in there – but I get in trouble when I do that.  I fall asleep sitting up.  I know I’m supposed to potty outside and I almost always do, but I forget sometimes.  (I’m working on it.)  I like to eat; my foster mom calls me “food motivated.”  I beg for food but my foster mom won’t give in – no matter how many pathetic looks I give her.  (She’s trying to teach me to stop…but hope springs eternal.)  I like to hang out with my foster brother beagles and I try to get them to play but they’re old so they aren’t really interested.  I like to go on walks and I really want to chase the squirrels but my foster mom won’t let me.  I like to eat snow…and sometimes dirt.  Oh, and I LOVE to give kisses.  Do you think maybe I’d be a good addition to your family?

Original Info: Tina came to BREW as a stray from the Louisa County, VA Animal Shelter.  She arrived at the shelter pregnant and delivered 4 pups. She was a wonderful mom and is great with small kids and other dogs. Stay tuned for more info once Tina moves into a foster home!

Pollyanna

Pollyanna

I’ve Been Adopted! 

Age: 6 years

Gender: Female

UPDATE – 16 FEBRUARY 2014: Annie (Pollyanna) has now been in her foster home for three months, and she continues to do well. She gets along with our dogs and cats, but she is most interested in affection from people. Annie’s foster dad travels a lot, and she is super-snuggly with him when he gets home (or anytime he’s home, really). Her funniest “pay attention to me” trick is that she will immediately lie down next to you and roll on her back if you are trying to exercise (or just lying down) on the floor – she loves her belly rubs! Annie knows how to sit but prefers to do so when there is a clear reward such as food or going in/out of the house (we are working on it during, walks, too). She is food-motivated and, despite being a clever girl, will not miss an opportunity to try to steal food from the other dogs (one over three times her size). She is fairly easily “herded” away from the other dogs’ bowls, but she has no fear when it comes to trying to snatch a treat right out of another dog’s mouth, so we do have to be careful at treat time. She’s still a talker when she gets impatient (meals, in/out of house, and out of crate). Annie likes walks but only has two speeds – “full speed ahead,” with her nose and eyes forward, and “anchor,” bringing up the rear with her nose to the ground. All-in-all, Annie is a lot of personality in a cute, little package, and she is certainly ready for her forever home!

4 JANUARY 2014: Charming, little Annie had quite the social calendar during December! She made friends wherever she went, ranging from an infant to toddlers to adults and including dogs from her size up to nearly 100 pounds. She traveled with us and our three dogs on a two-day trip to visit friends who have three young kids and a hound mix. Annie charmed everyone with her good behavior and sweet personality. She was especially in love with the five-year-old girl from whom she almost constantly begged for belly rubs (Mom and Dad loved Annie, too, but aren’t in a position for another dog – or she would have stayed!). Annie also joined us for a multi-day trip to visit family over Christmas, and she just went with the flow in a house with a stream of visitors (including wound-up toddlers) and a total of seven dogs (her new friends were two Boston terriers and a large Shepherd mix). Annie’s favorite Christmas buddy was my college-aged brother, whom, until now, I have never seen pick up a dog to put on his lap – she is a charmer! The week of New Year’s, Annie stayed in another BREW foster home (where she had also stayed over Thanksgiving), and she was right at home with several beagle buddies. With all these trips, we have not only learned that Annie is great with people and dogs of all ages and sizes, but that she is a great car traveler! We continue to crate her at night and while we are at work, but that has more to do with distrust of our own, occasionally grumpy, dogs. Annie continues to be trustworthy in the house while we are home and when left out unattended for a few hours. If you think Annie may be the one for you, please take a look at the BREW adoption application process!

8 DECEMBER 2013: Annie continues to be a joy in her foster home. She is sweet, snuggly, and silly and not afraid to let you know what’s on her mind! Annie has proven to be house-trained when kept on a reasonable schedule. She’s also been trustworthy left out (uncrated) with the other three dogs while we’ve been gone for a few hours, except (she won’t admit this!) she will get into the cat box if it’s accessible. Annie is a very people-friendly dog but will nap on her own if you’re busy, and she has started to play a bit with our smallest dog and chew a bit on toys. Because she can be noisy, Annie is not recommended for an apartment or townhouse, but she’d likely do well in most other homes, and she eagerly awaits her forever family!

24 NOVEMBER 2013: Pollyanna, whom we have been calling “Annie,” has been with us for three days now, and she has settled in very nicely. She is small (19 pounds) and cute as a button! She’s a little “buck-toothed” and sometimes her tongue sticks out of her mouth a bit, but it just makes her even cuter! Annie is very people-friendly and loves belly rubs, but she is also very content to curl up in a dog bed or open crate (she hopped in the crate for a nap as soon as I showed it to her the first night!). She is a bit of a talker and will whine or bark if she thinks you’re ignoring belly rub duties or too slow to let her in from the cold. Annie has been fine with the resident dogs (17-60 pounds) and cats, leaving them alone for the most part (except to steal an open dog bed!). She has kept the crate clean and dry and shows signs of being house-broken. She had a few accidents (mostly near the back door) in the first 24 hours, but that seems to have been due to some unwelcome intestinal hitchhikers (treatment currently underway). If you think Annie may be the one for you, please take a look at BREW’s adoption process and fill out an application!

Initial information: Just in from Fluvanna County, Virginia and is a little girl – under 20 pounds. Stay tuned for more info!

Dexter

Dexter

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 1-2 years

Gender: Male

NEW!!   Dexter is a very fun little dog.  He gets along great with other dogs and enjoys going to the dog park so he can run around.  Being a young dog, he LOVES to play with toys and has a very hard time walking by one with out picking it up to carry it around, even during his walks.  He gets along very well with children as well and plays nicely with them without jumping up.  He is doing very well with his house training and also goes eagerly into a crate and keeps it clean and dry.  He is a easy going dog and doesn’t mind being fed with other dogs and shares his toys with them too.  He is very quiet and would do well in either a house or an apartment.  Even though he loves to play with his foster brothers he would do just as well in a home without other dogs as he is a social little guy and likes to play with humans just as much.  Dexter does play pretty hard, but he also sees the value in a good long nap on a soft bed.

First Impressions: Dexter rode very well in his crate for 5 hours.  He just curled up and slept the entire way and he left his crate clean and dry!

Dexter (a.k.a. Dex) is a small, young beagle boy who is coming to BREW this weekend (2 November 2013) from Bedford County, Virginia. He is very sweet and weighs about 25 pounds. Dexter was originally found as a stray with another beagle (a senior female the finder decided to keep), and his history is unknown. Dexter will be fully vetted soon, and we will know more about him once he is in a foster home.
