I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Hi, I’m Belka! Did you know my namesake was a Russian space dog who spent a day in space aboard Sputnik 5 accompanied by a grey rabbit, 42 mice, 2 rats, flies, and several plants and fungi? They were the first earth-born creatures to go into orbit and return alive.
That’s kind of hard to top, but actually I’ve always considered myself a well-traveled guy, too. Unfortunately, the most I’ve traveled with are a swarm of fleas. They’re all dead and gone now, but I did scratch myself bare in a couple places. I had a bath with oatmeal shampoo and foster mom’s giving me good food and some salmon oil, so my coat should be full and shiny soon.
You know something else interesting about the name Belka? It translates to “squirrel!” Seriously?? Do you think that’s why I go crazy when I see those critters on my walks?
Speaking of walks, I love them! I also ride extremely well in the car. I’m a very friendly guy to everybody I meet; my tail and even my butt is always wagging. I’m doing pretty well in the housetraining department, but foster mom said I have to own up to a couple puddles. I don’t know how she knows it was me. There are other dogs here, I’m just sayin’.
I go to the bathroom outside when I go, but I don’t have a way to tell anybody when I have to go, so I’ll have to think of a good signal. But, in the meantime, I enjoy playing with other dogs, and also like reorganizing the house. I took all the dog coats off a chair and hid them in the corners of the couch and chairs. That’s a much better place for them, don’t you think?
While I like to move things around, I haven’t chewed on anything other than the toys from the doggie toy box. I’m a good boy, and handsome to boot! Couldn’t you use a little more of that in your life?

BREW Midwest is the midwest region of BREW Inc. (Beagle Rescue, Education and Welfare). We are a network of volunteers and foster homes across Western PA, OH, MI, IN and IL.
*Rescue beagles in danger of euthanasia from shelters
*Help beagles that have been removed from neglectful or abusive situations
*Educate families about beagles and their special qualities
*Find kind, loving families for homeless or abandoned beagles.
BREW is dedicated to rescuing and re-homing beagles. The main focus is beagles in shelters that are faced with imminent extermination. BREW works with shelters and animal control facilities and adopt beagles to families throughout our region. In addition to our rescue efforts, BREW is dedicated to increasing public awareness of pet overpopulation and encouraging pet owners to spay and neuter their pets. Towards that end, no beagle over six months of age is adopted from BREW without being spayed or neutered. BREW also works to alert people about the disadvantages of purchasing pets from a "pet store."
