Meet Duke
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 1 Year

Estimated Weight:  33 Pounds
NOTE: Would do best with a second dog for company.

UPDATE – 15 SEPTEMBER 2021 (from foster family): The bundle of joy known as Duke has now been with us a little over a week. He has been very polite to the dogs and cats here and has had an especially fun time playing with his foster brother Tan. Duke is very sweet and kind. He lets the other animals boss him around and does not complain one bit.

He has not had any accidents in the house but doesn’t signal to go out. He has been crated when we are away and he just sleeps in there. At night his current situation is sharing a crate with his foster brother Tan. He did well in his own crate the first few nights and then he started to cry a lot, but nothing seemed to make him happy. One of our wonderful BREW adoption coordinators thought maybe he could be lonely! We started bunking Duke and Tan in a large crate together at night and we are all sleeping again! For this reason, Duke probably needs a doggy best friend in his new home. He is fine living with cats because he is a little scared of them but they would not qualify as friends.

As far as kids, he hasn’t met any yet, but he does hop up at you and get a little mouthy on your hands when he wants your attention, so small kids might not do well with that habit. He is very gentle about it but we are working on it. He is more likely to do this when he missed you because you were at work or he just didn’t see you for awhile!

Duke is an expert snuggler and gives very sweet little kisses. He loves to follow you around and watch everything that you do!. He is learning the life of being a beagle taste tester in the kitchen and after many tries, has decided he might like carrots after all. Duke is a happy boy with a tail that spins like a propeller who will bring joy to a lucky adopter!

UPDATE – 4 SEPTEMBER 2021: Duke went off to a foster home, so let’s see how he does living in a house!

UPDATE – 7 July 2021: Duke is now fully vetted and available for fostering or adoption.

NEW – 6 JULY 2021: Duke and Luke were strays who came to BREW from a West Virginia shelter. Duke is a happy and playful beagle boy.  He’s very social, friendly and good with other dogs. He will be available soon.


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.
