Beans was brought to Pet Pals in September, 2006. Beans and his brother were confiscated from deplorable conditions. Children were also removed from the home. Being puppies they were happy and very active!
Both Pork and Beans were adopted within a couple months to the same family. Beans was later returned since two dogs became too much for them to handle.
After that time, Beans had several homes. He was returned for various reasons which were not his fault. One. homes’ larger dog became jealous and wanted to kill him. Another family turned Beans into a high kill facility and signed papers for him to be killed. Since, the husband signed our paperwork and the wife hadn’t, our contract for returning Beans to Pet Pals was void. The couple were divorcing. Luckily, due to a microchip registered in our name, Pet Pals was contacted and Beans was returned. Beans had a playmate who was also rescued from the high kill facility. A veterinary investigation showed the only time the playmate had been to a vet’s office was when she was in convulsions after ingesting medical marijuana. The playmate, Jelly, was adopted into a wonderful home.
In Beans’ last home the older husband became jealous and wanted Beans out of their home. The wife returned Beans with tears streaming down her face. The wife also returned Beans with a shock collar. She had put it on Beans to stop his barking outside. All Beans wanted was to be brought back inside.
The shock collar resulted in Beans having major mental issues. He trembles, shakes and pants if he hears a beep that reminds him of the cruel shock collar. We often have to use medicines to calm him down.
Beans is now almost 13 years old! We are fearful that a new home will not understand his panic attacks and hurt him so he remains at Pet Pals. Beans LOVES to play with toys. Thank you to several people who have sent toys for Beans!
