About Me

Meet Fern
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 2 Years

Estimated Weight:  21 Pounds

UPDATE – 14 SEPTEMBER 2021 (from foster mom): Fern is a real sweetie! Her super power is her amazing smile which she’ll give you for awhile when she gets excited and nervous!!! She is good around her foster brother but I think would do fine as an only dog too. She responds to her name, is friendly and will make a very nice companion & family member!

UPDATE – 28 AUGUST 2021: Fern went off to a foster home today, so we will be learning more about her soon!

NEW – 31 JULY 20201: Meet Fern! This little lady was in and out of the Goochland Animal Shelter in Virginia for a while (kept getting loose from her owner, who we think is a hunter). She has finally settled in with BREW and is looking for a permanent home. She’s very friendly and good with other dogs. She smiles! Fern is fully vetted and available for fostering or adoption.


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.
