Bean was born about February 19, 2011 and weighs about 15 lbs. This guy is major cute and loving and smart, didn't take him long to figure out the dog door. He is wonderful with the other dogs. He is with us because their 80 year old human passed away and a son was going in daily to feed the dogs, but asked animal control to pick them up and get them to safety. This is all we know so far as we are learning as we go and so will you. The southern shelter feels it is embarrassing to ask humans why they must relinquish their dogs as the reason is so often financial in the coal mining area of Virginia.
