Beans, November 8, 2016


Beans was discovered in a vacant home’s backyard. He was only three months old! Was he left behind by the home’s prior occupants? Did someone else put Beans in the yard, rather than take an unwanted puppy to the shelter?

Animal Control took Beans to the shelter, where staff noticed that his rear legs were crooked and that he walked like he was almost sitting. One eye looked like it was infected. We knew Beans was unlikely to be chosen by a rescue group, let alone the general public. We took in Beans, but with great concern about his substantial physical problems.

A specialist diagnosed that Beans had severe luxating patellas (both knees) and an entropion eye. Beans had two surgeries to fix everything, then a substantial recovery period to ensure successful healing. Bean is now “good to go,” a normal teen-dog, and ready for adoption!

Beans is learning a lot in his foster home regarding dog and cat social skills, as pictured below. His foster mom wants a fenced yard and another dog in Beans’ future home. If you think you’re ready for Beans, inquire or apply online!

If you’d like to see how Beans’ was when he first arrived, please watch this video: Beans made it, and is one of DAWG’s many stories of helping dogs no one else wanted.
