Woody

I'm Available!

Age: 4-5 years

Gender: Male

13 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 pounds. 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 teenagers 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 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!

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.

Luca

I'm Available!

Age: 5 years

Gender: Male

4/10/12 Update.  At age four, Luca is a playful and rambunctious beagle.  He loves to hang and romp with other beagles and is also a friend to frisky felines. Luca was dropped off at a shelter with a broken tail, which left him with neurological damage.  His tail was amputated; however, he is still 100% beagle and extremely loving.  Luca would like to find a permanent home with a family or someone who has some love and patience to spend on him.  To know Luca is to love him.  Do you have room in your heart for him?

12/15/09: Luca was great around my 6-month old niece.  She grabbed his ear but he didn't react at all.  He even let me hold her and waited till she went home to get back into my lap

July 4 Update: Luca is doing well.  He loves to be near humans as well as other dogs.  Sometimes he will jump up in my arms and moan in happiness while receiving a belly rub.  It is almost like having a baby.  He is definitely a cuddler.  Luca needs someone who is willing to go outside the box by taking care of ALL his needs.  He is on a special diet and wears regular baby diapers to help with his neurological damage, but don't be fooled, he is 100% beagle.  Once you meet him, he'll charm his way into your heart.

UPDATE 11/21/08: Miss that maternal feeling? Got free time?

I need someone special who is willing to give me lots of extra TLC. See I was injured--I don't remember how--painful experience, but my tail was amputated. I am left with some neurological damage, but I am otherwise fine. Now I am looking for someone to care for ALL my needs. I assure you I will make it up to you through love, cuddling, quirky expressions, and the usual beagle traits. You won't regret it. My foster mom can vouch for me. She'd keep me, but she works long hours and knows it is in my best interest o find someone with more time to care for me. If I sound like a match with you, let's meet.

Older info: It turned out that Luca's tail was broken and it just hung there and got in his way. We had the tail removed and he is so happy about it. He couldn't figure out why it wouldn't wag. He looks adorable with his little stub and it suits him. He is a tiny guy and very sweet. What a lovely face and long, soft ears.

Luca is a 1 1/2 year old neutered beagle boy that is fairly small. He's fairly energetic but gentle when being handled. He is typical beagle in that he is food driven. Unfortunately his tail is crooked, don't know if it was an accident or from birth but it doesn't seem to hinder him. He gets along well with other dogs. He was a stray at the Culpeper Animal Shelter so his history is unknown.

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?

Webster

I've Been Adopted!

Age: 9 ish

Gender: Male

Webster is a BREW alumnus adopted in 2005. He did well in his home until a child came along and the owners worried that Webster was too aggressive with the toddler. On medical examination, Webster was diagnosed with early Cushing's. Meaning - he was hungry all the time! And probably was going after food! He has been treated and is doing very well on his medication. He gets a weekly pill and has a normal beagle appetite. The vet says his Cushing's is at a level 2 out of 10 and that he is very adoptable.

Webster (my husband calls him WebSTAR) is a super affectionate boy. Webster greets each morning with joy and optimism. He is playful with my dogs and has been wonderful with the neighborhood children.But, he shouldn't go to a home with toddlers, just based on the past. And someone willing to give him weekly pills is also a requirement.

He walks really well on lead. When he is tired, he likes to snooze in a open crate or in a dog bed. He has that magic energy - always up for a walk or some play - but also always ready to settle down and snooze peacefully. He has been pure joy in his foster home. But, I know he would like to be someone's special boy!

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!

Clover

I've Been Adopted!

 

 

Age: 2 years

Gender: Female

Note from Clover:  I would like a forever home but right now I would like to see this *thing* they call Lucy get a new home.  I was a diva just a few short weeks ago.  I need my diva status back!  Following rules and working for attention is just too much work during the holidays so please someone take her home for Christmas.

Clover has come a long way in her foster home.  She is learning that people over 4 feet tall are OK.    She just loves children.   Clover loves to run and wrestle with her foster canine brother.

She is a delicately made little girl with a darling underbite which gives her face such personality. She looks tall because she is so petite-ly made. She is about 22 pounds. Clover has arthritic front shoulders – due to a birth defect - she takes medication to slow down progress of the arthritis.

She loves to cuddle and will sit in your lap. She has learned give  her paw and to give a kiss. She loves to play with toys but doesn't rip them apart! She is so smart and sweet but has her Diva side too. She is a little shy at first, but loves people, loves to bake in the sun -like most beagles. We would love to see her go to a person/family who likes to take short walks as her joints need the activity to keep them health.

Tiny Tim

I have been adopted!

Age: 5-6 years

Gender: Male

Update 4/30/2011: Timmy went to the Doctors for his leg. He has some scar tissue that is sensitive by his left leg.

I would be better in a home with just adults because I'm afraid a child will hurt me where my pelvis was shattered. I am working on potty training - have had a few accidents in the house. I love to walk but I need to go slowly. I love love love to play with toys and I enjoy the company of other dogs. We play a lot!  And guess what, I LIKE  the family cat (but please don't tell other dogs that, I mean, it's kinda embarrassing.).

I dig hygiene - because I get my teeth brushed every day. It took me a while to get in to the habit...but seriously, I've come to learn that unbrushed teeth leads to Dragon Breath.

I sleep in a doggy bod next to my foster family.

Oh, and you know how I know I'm from Northern Virginia? I have seasonal allergies. Yeah, you heard that - I get all sneezy over pollen.

First Update: Tiny Tim is doing great! Day 4 no accidents in the house!  Starting to play with our girls a little - when they will allow it.  Loves to run and go on walks. Mostly just likes to go to work with me during the day (sleeping under my desk in the home office!)

Tiny Tim is a 5-6yr old neutered male that weighs around 18lbs. At some point in his life he suffered a hip injury which has healed but left him with a limp. He is very friendly, great with other dogs but was a stray in Abingdon VA so his history is unknown.
