About Me

Meet Hawke
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 5 Years

Estimated Weight:  30 Pounds
NOTE: Timid and likely needs a second dog to help with his self-confidence; needs a quiet home with no young children. A fenced yard would be helpful.

UPDATE – 13 JUNE 2021: Hawke is timid and quiet, but don’t let that fool you. He loves cuddles and belly rubs! He just needs a little time to get comfortable with you and his surroundings.

He likes to be very efficient with his outings in the backyard. As soon as he is done with his business, he is ready to go back to his corner. He likes to nap the day away and sleeps in an enclosed area overnight.

He does a great impression of a pancake when he encounters something new, though he is not particularly food-motivated. Another dog in the house will definitely help him settle in faster and give him much-needed confidence.

He had two accidents during his first week when his favorite activity was shaking like a leaf. Since then, no more accidents, he’s been happy to hold it until he goes outside. Now, his favorite activities include sneaking around behind you – playing red-light, green-light – giving silly side-eyes, and finding cozy corners.

UPDATE – 22 MAY 2021: Shy Hawke went to a foster home today. We are looking forward to seeing how he does now that he will be surrounded by loving and kind humans.

NEW – 14 MAY 2021: Hawke, along with Chester, came to BREW as an owner surrender because his elderly veteran owner could no longer care for him. Hawke is very shy with people but seems to do well with other dogs. He has improved since being at the BREW kennels; he now greets our kennel manager at feeding time with little whimpers and tail wags, but he retreats into the dog house when someone enters the kennel. He is now 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.
