Panda – Adopted April 2021

About Me

Meet Panda
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 1 Year

Estimated Weight: 19 Pounds

UPDATE – 7 APRIL 2021: This energetic and playful pup is doing well in her foster home and is still waiting for her forever home. Her foster mom says Panda gets along well with all of the dogs in her home, males and females alike. She loves to play with toys. She is sweet and becoming more accustomed to being a part of a family. How can anyone resist that cute underbite?

UPDATE – 5 MARCH 2021 (from foster mom): We have learned a lot from the adoption and return of Panda. She’s energetic, super sweet and, although a little submissive, plays well with the other dogs in my home. She is mostly house trained but seems to do better when she goes out with the other dogs, and she needs a very consistent schedule. She is crate trained and goes into her crate willingly, keeping it clean both during the day (when I am at work) and at night for extended periods. She will bark for a brief period when you first put her in the crate in the evening, but she quickly quiets down and is quiet until she hears you get up in the mornings. When I get home in the evenings, and she hears me enter the house, she will also bark (along with my own) but will quiet down if you ignore her for a few minutes before letting her out of her crate. Like most dogs, she will bark to alert the family of anything out of the ordinary, but she’s not an obsessive barker. She will need a little more socialization since she hasn’t had a lot of experience in meeting new people. We think she would most likely do best in a home with another dog to help her adjust, but we’re not 100% sure of this since she is crated in a room alone when I am at work and seems to do fine after the initial barking. Although for the most part she has been an easy foster, she was/is probably not ready to be a first dog for an adopter.  She needs a family who has had some experience working with a young pup who didn’t experience a lot of human attention before she came to BREW.

UPDATE – 1 MARCH 2021: We thought Panda had found her forever home, but the new owners had to return Panda due to allergies and concerns that Panda wasn’t doing well with all the city noises.  We are also now thinking that Panda would do better with another dog in the home who can help her adjust. She can be a little nervous in new situations, but she is a very sweet girl who deserves a second chance. She is back with our kennel manager where she is being fostered in her home and doing very well. She is a smart girl, as the prior owners discovered. They did a great job getting her started on various commands. She does well on a leash.  Let us know if you are interested in meeting this cute little mix of a little bit of everything!

UPDATE – 17 DECEMBER 2020: Panda is now fully vetted and available for adoption.

NEW – 9 NOVEMBER 2020: Sometimes we end up rescuing pups who have nowhere else to go. Pepper and Panda are two such pups. Here is what our kennel manager has to say about how they came to BREW:

Panda and Pepper are only 11% beagle, but they still need love, and they still need a home. I received a call from Louisa County Animal Shelter in Virginia about someone who had two 6-month-old beagle puppies he wanted to give up. Since they were located near me, I volunteered to pick them up without having to expose them to the shelter. When I got there, an elderly man met me and took me to the pen where they were living. I asked where the beagle puppies were, and he pointed to these two little black & white pups. I said they were not beagles, and he asked if we could help them anyway because he could no longer afford to care for them. The pen they were in had to be dismantled to get them out. They are both small. Pepper is only 12 pounds. Panda is a little bigger and a little more confident.  She has a cute underbite! They are friendly and very active but haven’t been handled too much. I can pet them. but they have no manners or leash training. Let’s see if we can find these little girls a home. They will be available soon.

DNA says: 30% Shih Tzu, 14% American Pit Bull Terrier, 12% Chihuahua, 11% Beagle, 11% Bassett Hound, and more!


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.
