Meet Beans

If there was a general bio for a cattle dog, Beans would fit the bill - short, squat, pointed ears, spots all over, loyal, protective, active, loves toys especially balls, and a docked tail to boot! He's a beautiful dog and will be a great partner and friend to his new family!

Being a cattle dog, he does have some traits that may not be right for those with small kids, or aren't used to the mouthiness that a cattle dog can have - Beans is mouthy for sure. He will do well in an active home that has the time to take him on adventures.

Beans has been somewhat protective of his toys - perhaps he's just never had any and doesn't know how to share? But if he does go to a home with another dog, slow intros and a careful eye at the beginning will be needed to make sure it goes well.

Beans is also learning about personal space - he's a real love, likes to snuggle and sit on your lap for belly rubs. He's a quick learner, he wants to please and connect with his person, and shows no food aggression, he just likes those toys!

Other tidbits are that he does well sleeping in his crate and goes right in when asked, he loves to lean on you while you pet him (if he's not sitting in your lap), he's not a big barker, and he seems confident, healthy, and loves to hang with everyone. He does love kids, but is best with older, dog-confident kids.

Thank you for reading about our awesome dog. All dogs came to us from different situations and we often do not know much about their past, but they are rescue dogs who deserve a second chance and need patience on their journey. All of our dogs our are in foster homes all across the bay area.

The first step of the process is you must submit an application in order to set up a meet and great or talk with the foster family. Once application is submitted the foster parents will contact you to chat more about the dog and make sure they're a good fit and can answer any further question. The application answers most of all of our questions and can best match you. If you do not get the dog you apply for we can use your same application for 90 days towards another dog in our care and simply forward your app to that foster parent.

All dogs will be fully vetted (Spay/ Neutered, Micro chipped, DHPP and Rabies Vaccinated) and other possible vet care prior to adoption.

The adoption fee is $250, which is considered a non refundable donation
