Mean Bean roamed the mean streets for a while before coming to the shelter looking for her forever home.

A puppy in a big body, Mean Bean has much of the curiosity and playfulness that comes with a baby, but the manners and restraint of a more adult dog. Princess Bean is looking for that happily ever after- if you think that you could be Bean’s fairy tale ending, come see her today! Animal Control News No items found.
