Lil’ Anne

I’ve Been Adopted!

Age: 5 months

Gender: Female

Lil’ Anne is NOT available through BREW. If you are interested, please contact Teresa at: beaglesnbullies@embarqmail.com

 

 

Due to popular demand,  the little coonhound is named Lil’ Anne after the redbone in the movie “Where the Red Ferns Grow”.   She is a sweetie, energetic and definitely works that nose.  She is smart, may make a good working dog, search and rescue but is definitely a puppy and lots of fun.

She weighs about 35lbs and is absolutely gorgeous.  From what I have read, redbone coonhounds are very much like beagles in personality and make excellent pets for families with children.  She is super sweet, big personality to go along with that gorgeous bay, needs a little training but knows all about belly rubs!!  She is supersmart, learned the doggy door (coming in to the building at least) immediately.  When I agreed to take her, she was in the shelter lobby doing the little doggy bow, back end wagging feverishly, looking up showing the whites of those big brown eyes with long ears just flopping, being just too darn cute!!!  The shelter begged me to take her. What could I say?

Jet

I’m Available!

 

Age: 1-2 years

Gender: Male

10 MARCH 2014: Jet has been with us now since New Year’s Day. He is a very sweet boy who lives for belly rubs and human snuggles. Jet loves to give kisses, is a good kitchen “helper”, and loves to greet anyone who comes in the door! He does not know a human stranger, and everyone he meets is his friend immediately. We do not have kids, but he did very well meeting a few families with children at the adoption event.

He is house and crate trained and has pretty good house manners (minimal begging, no chewing, etc.). His one downside is that he does have some jealousy issues with other dogs. He generally gets along okay with our two beagles, but we do think he’d be best as an only dog. All things considered, Jet is a fantastically well adjusted dog. Some family will be very lucky to win his love forever! We promise you will never be better loved.

19 JANUARY 2014 – Note from foster home: While Jet LOVES the company of humans, he prefers to have them to himself and would be best adopted into a home with no other dogs.

17 DECEMBER 2013 – News from a great temporary foster! We adopted a BREW Beagle a year ago and he has been a fantastic addition to our family. To try to give back a little for the great work that BREW does, we offered to take one of the Beagles at the vet for a day on the weekend.

I have three children, ages 8, 7 and 5 and they rose at 5:30am they were so excited to go get Jet for the day. (Note to self, don’t tell the kids before breakfast next time!)

We picked him up at the Veterinary Clinic at about 10:30am. He came out and howled a greeting to us. I thought he might keep on barking but he stopped as soon as we went outside. He pulled me towards a tree and tinkled. Then he looked at me as if to say “What’s up? Where are we going?”

I sent the kids into the car and he hopped up with no assistance. On the way home he sat up in the front seat and just looked out. He was happy to be in the car and no trouble at all.

We got him home and he met my beagle Yahoo. They sniffed each other and then largely ignored each other. Jet went to the door and I interpreted that as wanting to go out. He went outside and relieved himself, then came back in. He clearly knew how to go outside. He also knows how to sit, as when I told my dog to sit for a treat, Jet sat down immediately. This dog was clearly someone’s dog at one point.

For the rest of the day he was happy to nap and be pet by my kids. When he’s sleeping and you call his name to get up, he rolls over with all fours in the air for belly scratches.

Very gentle boy. He was able to tolerate the mild rough behavior of my children with no problems.

If I had more room, I’d have kept him. This dog will be at home in almost any situation. Very calm and cuddly.

Original info: Jet came to us from the shelter in Dublin, VA. He was surrendered to the shelter in early November and thankfully BREW got him out in time. Jet is thought to be 1 – 2 years old and is friendly with both dogs and humans. In the case of humans he greets them with a wagging tail and a big, wet tongue in the face. Jet is at our favorite vet clinic now getting some work done, but will be ready for adoption in by 11/25. Wouldn’t you like to make your home his furever home?

Special thanks to Nicole Abramson who brought Jet to us from Dublin!

Van Gogh

I’m Available!

Age: 1 year

Gender: Male

NEWS! Van Gogh, like his namesake, is quite the artist! Check out his new photos in the gallery below and on a photo page set up by Van Gogh’s foster dad!

UPDATE – 24 NOVEMBER 2013: Van Gogh is very happy and active. He has learned to play fetch! He loves going for walks around the neighborhood and loves to meet the kids and dogs. He seems to like taking a bath, too! He is a lot of fun!

First impressions: He is approximately 1 yr.  The flap of his left ear is missing.  Looks like someone tried to dock his ear.  He is cute as a button and super sweet. He likes everyone, kids and other dogs included.  He is friendly and outgoing.  Not very vocal but when he barks he sounds like he has been smoking.

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.

Mason

Adoption Pending!

Age: 1 year

Gender: Male

UPDATE – 29 JANUARY 2014: Mason is a sweet dog who loves everyone.  He does fine with older children, however, he is still very young and has not learned he can’t jump up on people.  We are working on that.  He loves going for his walks with my neighborhood dog walkers (twin boys about 10 years old).  He runs and plays tug of war with them.  They all really enjoy each other.  Mason needs to be in a home with another dog or with a human who is home all day.  He really hates to be alone.  He barks and barks.  He doesn’t like to be crated and barks then also.  He is still young enough to need obedience training and that would help him learn to listen better.  He comes running when you call him and is always ready for a treat.  He was so thin when he got here, all his ribs were showing and hip bones and back bones.  He has gained a little, but mostly just filled out a little.  He likes to counter surf and is learning the “off” command.

He is house broken, but did mark his territory when he first arrived.  I have no problem leaving him with my 3 beagles when I am gone.  I do not need to crate him.  He only destroys paper towels, if I leave one on my desk or the side table.  Other than that he listens when I correct him for taking a shoe to chew.  As long as he has a toy or appropriate chew to replace it, he is no problem.

Mason will be a good dog for someone with older children who know to treat a dog who likes to run and play.  He is still so much a puppy in attitude.  He wants to sleep on the bed with you and likes to get under the covers.  He wants to play all the time and has kept my couch potatoes busy.  Even my older beagle girl, Biscuit, has started to play again since he has been here.  She fussed at him in the beginning, but he was persistent and now, she will play with him twice each day.

Original info: Mason came to us from the Franklin County shelter where he was friendly with dogs and people. We’ll know more about him when he gets to a foster home.
