Diamond – Adopted March 2021

About Me

Meet Diamond
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 4-5 Years

Estimated Weight:  37 Pounds

NEW – 16 FEBRUARY 2021: Diamond and one of her puppies, Jingle (already adopted), were surrendered to the Madison County Animal Shelter in Virginia, and then to BREW, in December 2020. We don’t know why the owners no longer wanted the dogs. Jingle was not yet weened when we first picked up the pups, so Diamond and Jingle have been hanging out in a BREW foster home until they were ready for adoption. Jingle has been adopted, and Diamond will be ready soon for adoption. She still needs to be spayed. Here is what Diamond’s foster mom has to say about this wonderful momma dog:

Diamond is a very laid back 4-5 year old beagle/Bassett mix who weighs 37 pounds. She loves to leash walk but doesn’t require much exercise to be happy (so she would be great as an apartment dog). Diamond also likes to sniff around the yard (she will definitely chase animals if she sees them) and take long naps anywhere she can find a spot (especially if it is sunny). She is completely house trained and sleeps in her crate without any issues. Diamond has been extremely and patient and tolerant of our small children and would make a great family dog.

Diamond is a fence climber. She absolutely needs (at minimum) a 6 foot privacy fence. She can easily, and will, climb a mesh or chain link fence.


Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
