NEW - 18 AUGUST 2022: Sadly, Howie's owner passed away, so we are looking for a new home for this BREW alum. He is in a foster home and is doing very well. Here is an initial report from his foster family:
Howie has been with us for 16 days and is a happy, active, friendly, and a foody of a beagle! He loves other beagles (and non-beagles). He loves to play in the yard with humans and beagles, and he enjoys walking with a harness and leash. He likes being in the crate when in the car alone but will also ride contently on the back seat with other beagles.
Howie is a fast eater, so I am using a portion control bowl (medium complexity). He will try for other dogs' bowls but politely backs off if they snarl or give him a nudge. Another dog may decide to nip at Howie if he gets in his/her space around a food bowl.
Howie loves treats and chew bones, but I have not tried toys yet. He adjusted to family life quickly, and he loves being petted and sitting with us in the doggy bed or on the floor. He is playful as all get out. He is having a bit of issue with staying in his doggy bed at night. We go to bed at 9pm, which is a bit early for many. He seems to be restless until about 11:30pm. But, when I put him back in his doggy bed and tell him to stay, he does stay and is fine for the rest of the night.
Howie answers to his name, knows "come," stops at the “no” command. He sits for my husband for treats when not distracted by the other dogs. He has had limited contact with children but is friendly and playful with them. He seems to adapt quickly to any environment.
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.
