Story
Needing to rehome a female wired hair terrier/jack russell that was adopted at 8 weeks in summer of 2011. She has had one owner. Has been around kids and a cat her whole life. Does not like to be around other dogs as she will bark. She will bark at the vacuum. She has a lot of energy and enjoys being outdoors. She is up to date on all her vaccines, shots and license. Looking for a family that can give her the love and affection she needs. She is used to being outdoors on a long chain but could benefit from a large yard she can run around in. Serious inquires only please.

Story
Charlie is a very handsome 6-year-old beagle boy searching for his forever home. He loves his humans and enjoys getting attention from his foster mom. He is housetrained, loves car rides, potties in his fenced yard and during his walks. He follows the lead from the other dogs in his foster home. During walks he is very curious about any wildlife smells. He has a high prey drive and will try to climb over the fence. Charlie’s new home will require a very secure fence and close supervision when in the yard. Charlie would do best in a home where he is the only dog. Because of his high prey drive, he will need a home with no cats. Charlie is a very loving medium energy dog and will make the perfect addition for the right home. Contact your Midwest BREW adoption counselor if you would like to know more about Charlie. NOTE: Dog may be located in any of our six volunteer states (WI, IL, IN, OH, PA, MI).

Story
This gorgeous young gal with movie-star looks is Avalon! At five months old, she’s all puppy and is a bit klutzy as she’s still growing. Once she gets her sea legs, though, she’d make a great companion for an avid walker or runner. A home with a yard where she can burn off her puppy energy by romping and playing would be ideal. Playtime with other dogs is a serious business for Avalon, so supervision while she’s playing is a good idea. Avalon is a beagle/boxer/terrier mix, and we’re guessing that she’ll weigh in the neighborhood of 40 to 50 pounds once she’s an adult. Because of her size, she’ll need supervision around smaller children but should be fine with older ones. Her foster mom says she’s very food motivated and “eats like a vacuum” (show us a beagle who doesn’t!), so if there are other dogs in the house, she should be fed separately from them. She does well in a crate at night and is mostly housetrained with a doggy door, although she still has the occasional accident. If you’re looking to liven up your days with a sweet, affectionate, energetic companion, Avalon may be the dog you’ve been looking for! NOTE: Dog may be located in any of our six volunteer states (WI, IL, IN, OH, PA, MI). Please read our Standards for Adoption and the information about beagles and puppies before you submit an adoption application. Remember that owning a puppy is a full-time commitment and you must have the time to commit to a dog that will be with you for 12-17 years. Beagle puppies are cute - but they are very challenging. Puppies may eat your apartment (no refund of security deposit); people who are gone for more than 5 hours at a time will need to make dog walker, neighbor or doggie daycare arrangements. We discourage the adoption of puppies to families with children under the age of six, since puppies will chew toys, shoes, blankets, hands, feet and other important parts of your child's anatomy.

Story
Toby is a 1 and 1/2 year old ginger beagle. He is very energetic and needs lots of exercise. He would do best as the only dog. He does play with the other dogs in the house but likes to be the alpha male and on occasion has growled at the other foster dog. He likes attention. He loves his toys and treats. This handsome beagle is looking for a home where he can be the center of attention and get plenty of exercise. NOTE: Dog may be located in any of our six volunteer states (WI, IL, IN, OH, PA, MI).

Story
This is Paprika, a unique and wonderful Beagle mix. Paprika was born in foster care, so we have the complete scoop on him. DNA revealed 52% Beagle, 30% Shiba Inu, 16% Australian Cattle Dog with a smidgen of Border Collie and German Shepherd. What does all that add up to? Medium sized (some people think Shibas, Cattle Dogs and Borders are large, they are not) floppy eared, curly tailed, spunky, smart puppies. Paprika IS 90% housetrained with a doggy door and sleeps through the night. He loves the outdoors and is a very gentle boy unless he is at play with his litter or other dogs. Then he's tough, oh, okay he THINKS he's tough, and quite the barker, that beagle DNA comes WAY out in his howl. Although Paprika seems mild mannered, he has been first with everything. First to be born, first to open eyes, first to walk, first to and first to nudge his way through the garden fencing. He doesn't brag about it but he is quietly ahead of the pack. Unique is the best word for him...fill out an application and find out if this "best boy" is for you! NOTE: Dog may be located in any of our six volunteer states (WI, IL, IN, OH, PA, MI).

Story
Hi, my name is Charley Too, but those who know me best call me Hugo or baby Huey. It’s a long story that I am happy to share over a snuggle on the couch sometime. I have been bounced around to a couple of homes because I have a lot of energy and I am still really young and learning. My first home did not do much training with me and I got a rap of being a “naughty” boy, but I really am a good boy and I like hearing the word: “yes” because I know that I will get a treat! Speaking of learning; I am very smart, and I love food! I am really curious as well. That makes me really easy to train. Since I have been at my foster home, I have been learning lots of new skills and I enjoy the kibble I get for learning them. My foster mom says I loose-leash walk like a champ and I rarely pull, not like my rotten foster brother. I’m kidding about the rotten part; I really like other dogs and I pick up cues from them very quickly. I like having another dog around to help teach me, I was alone in my previous homes and didn’t get much training or help in learning how to be a companion. I am good at: sit, down, touch, and I am learning consensual care skills to help me be a better dog while being groomed or cared for by a vet. For a smart young boy like me who is very eager to learn, training every day for 15 minutes is necessary to allow me to settle and grow into the best beagle you have ever had; it helps me to focus and gives me confidence when I hear “yes” and “good boy” because I know I am loved. My foster mom carries a pouch of kibble and we practice loose leash check in and touch while we walk; I love that time. I like stuffed toys, playing fetch, and chew bones (especially antlers). I will try to play with my foster brother but I can play hard and he gets tired quick and quits. I am learning when he quits to settle down and play on my own. I have played with really big dogs (130#) well too. I love having a canine companion and while I am confident around other dogs; I am not a dominant dog in personality. I do not get mad when another dog drinks from the same bowl as me or tries to eat my food while I am eating, but I do eat better when I am in my crate so I feel safe and can eat without feeling like I have to eat super-fast. I am very good at housetraining and have only had accidents while my foster mom and I figured out how to communicate that I need to go. I stay in a crate during the day without fuss; although I do need a small bribe of a peanut butter Kong and a small treat to go in there. I was bad about going in a crate until I learned that crate games could yield me tasty treats! I am a little fussy in my crate at night, but that is mostly because I really want to cuddle and sleep with my family. Sometimes my foster mom will wake me up if it is close to alarm and take me to cuddle on the couch. That is the best in the world! I snuggle in close under the blanket and sleep like a rock until breakfast. That is really a happy place, and I would love to be able to snuggle at night. I ride good in a car, I really like to rest my chin in between the two front seats and be close to people. Sometimes I will just curl up in the back and sleep if that is more comfortable. Do not let my size and shape fool you; I am athletic and can run and jump really good! I try to mind the baby gates at home, but sometimes I jump them to get to the toys in the other room (my foster brother taught me how to do that so it must be okay). I would like someone rescue experienced to help me continue to grow into a calm and confident adult. Someone who can remember that while I look full grown that I am only 8-10 months old and still very much a puppy. I would like a home with minimal alone time and a dog to cuddle with and play with. It’s very important that my new family spends time with me every day on reinforcement training and understands that I do best when I have choices. I am finishing some training and will be available mid-May. NOTE: Dog may be located in any of our six volunteer states (WI, IL, IN, OH, PA, MI).
