UPDATE – 17 DECEMBER 2020: Pepper 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:

Ok, so Pepper is only 11% beagle, but she still needs love, and she still needs 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. 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.
