Elsie

I’m Available!


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.

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.

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!
