Leela – Adopted July 2021

About Me

Meet Leela
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 3 Years (will turn 4 on July 13th, 2021)

Estimated Weight:  24 Pounds
NOTE: Must have a fenced yard with a six-foot fence; Owner must have beagle/hound experience; No young children; Another playful dog would be a big plus.

UPDATE – 20 MAY 2021 (from foster mom): Leela is a wonderful dog, but she will need a human who can accommodate her likes and dislikes. I do not think she is a difficult dog, and I know difficult. Leela is house trained, plays only with approved toys and is not a big barker. She walks well on a leash and won’t pull unless she catches a scent. Leela took a few days to start to trust us and did not want us to grab her collar or pick her up quickly during that time. Here is a list of her likes and dislikes:


· Escaping! Open door? Leela will find it and use it. 4 ft fence? Up and over.

· Kitchen counters – but only when there is something tasty left there. And tasty can be a matter of opinion. Eggshells anyone?

· Playing with the other resident dogs. Leela would love to have a friend to play with.

· Barking at new people (she must let them know who is boss).

· Sleeping in the human bed.

· Cuddling.


· Someone trying to take her kitchen counter prize from her. Leela will defend her prize. Or any other prize she happens to find. (Hence, no young children that would not understand not to take something from her.)

· Some dogs.  Leela has been good with most all dogs (new fosters, visiting dogs) that come to her foster home.  The exception was a shy dog who didn’t want to engage (e.g., be sniffed).

· Runners on walks. They are going so fast they must be up to no good, right?

NEW – 11 APRIL 2021: Leela was surrendered to BREW by an older couple due to one of the humans having health issues. Leela is now in a BREW foster home.



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.
