NEW – 8 MARCH 2021: Jasper came to BREW as an owner surrender when his owner went into an assisted living facility. Jasper has been in a BREW foster home for about a week. Here is an initial report from his foster mom:

Jasper is a happy, friendly, playful pup — his tail never stops wagging and he loves all of us (including the kids). He is definitely a snuggler and loves attention and affection. He is a people dog above everything — he follows us around, sleeps on the floor next to our desks while we work and tries to climb into our laps constantly (he thinks he’s a lap dog even though he’s a little large for that!). He is fine around our dog although he hasn’t been interested in playing with her. He would do well as an only dog (he might prefer it because he really likes attention). He has a playful spirit and enjoys playing with toys, especially squeaky ones. He seems to want to play fetch and brings toys back to us but has some trouble letting go of them. He has run off with things in our house a few times (socks or shoes etc.) but he doesn’t chew them — he just likes taking them. He also loves walks, although he’s a bit of a puller on the leash.

He is absolutely food-obsessed and has exhibited some food aggression with our dog, so now he gets fed in his crate. He also tries to counter-surf and jump up on the dining room table. He is a typical vocal Beagle. He barks when he hears noises outside and enjoys hanging on the porch watching people and dogs go by and barking at them. He also whines/barks when one of us leaves the house. We’re working with him on all of this. At night, when there are fewer noises, he is quiet.

 

Questions?

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.
