Facts about BEAN

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Please note* BEAN needs to live with another dog or dogs. She will not do well as an only dog. She also needs an adopter experienced with timid or shy dogs.

In the shelter BEAN was so timid, they could only handle her by throwing a towel over her. Not that she would bite - this dog is the most gentle, soulful gal you will ever meet - but that her terror of people was so strong that she would tremble, shake, and scream in fear. But when she looked at us with those green eyes, there was no way we could ever leave her behind to face euthanasia that very day.

Wow! Has this dog come a long way! She still doesn't jump in your lap like some of the happy go lucky pups you could adopt. But this dog is very special. She is now about two years old, and loves other dogs and is good with cats, will come and lie next to you when she knows you, nudges your face to say hello and is a sweet soul.

She would prefer not to be in a home with kids because they are too demanding of her. But in an experienced adult home, with other dogs - this little treasure will thrive. She loves off leash hiking and adventures, loves to wrestle and run with other dogs.

We do NOT (except in unusual circumstances) adopt beyond a 50 mile radius from the East Bay, so that we can adequately do a home check and follow up.


About Our Rescue Group...

Our adoption program is just one of the services we offer our community. We believe in prevention so we run monthly Free Vaccine Clinics for the residents of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, as well as funding low cost and free spay and neuter surgeries to low income and homeless community members. Our adoptable pets come from two sources - directly from the community as owner surrenders, or from our local partner municipal shelters.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are in foster homes in the Bay Area. We can usually arrange a meet and greet within a day or two.

We host adoption events outside the Berkeley Animal Care Services shelter (one of our close partner organizations) or at the store HOLISTIC HOUND in Berkeley, or the GEORGE store in Larkspur Landing, in Marin. But these are not on a regular schedule as we do a lot of outreach work in our community and our weekends are sometimes taken up with those events. Please check our Facebook Page for details of events, or email us.

Our Adoption Process...

Our fee is $200 for pups or dogs and $100 for kittens or cats.

We ask you to complete an adoption application which is not available online yet, but can be emailed to you. We try to have adoptions which really meet the needs of the individual pet, we encourage multi pet households as most dogs and many cats are very social and need each other. We need to feel that this is a good fit for everyone, and we are as honest as we can be about the good and not so good points of our adoptable pets. We want it to work!
