UPDATE: Bean has found her forever home!!

You read that right. This Mama Bear’s name is Bean. If you are looking for some deep nurturing in your life, look no further. This is the girl for you.

This sweet 2-year-old was dropped off at a high kill shelter in South Georgia with her three pups, but when a few other orphaned puppies were dumped there, she quickly adopted them as her own, caring for and feeding them. Even through mistreatment, malnourishment, abandonment, heartworms (now successfully treated), and a new grain allergy, she has gracefully kept her loving nature. She has a smile for everyone and takes time out of her long days to snuggle, kiss, and warm the heart of anyone who comes near her.

Her current favorite activities include allowing everyone to admire her, eating yummy snacks, and playing with friends. While she enjoys running and playing, her fondest activity is lounging around. If you find yourself needing someone to share your troubles with, she is an excellent listener (to commands, as well). She is a people pleaser to the core and as such is easily trainable.

So if you’re looking for a rare treasure, a snuggler with a heart of gold, and a best friend, you could certainly find her in our Beanie Weenie. She’s certainly looking for you.
