Are you looking for a dog with a big personality? Bean is a 3-year-old mixed breed who weighs 56 pounds. This big boy loves toys, exercise and mental stimulation. He still has a puppy personality and tendencies but learns very quickly. Bean responds very well to training with treats and learned the “drop it” command in just a few minutes. He also knows how to sit, shake, stay and he works on leash pulling and resource protection. Bean loves his playtime and relaxes quickly afterwards, ready to cuddle with you after his workout.
Bean is at the Humane Society of St. Joseph County and because he would be such a fun boy to train, they include a four-week training course through GoodPup for his adopter. Bean would do best as a single pet (he doesn’t want to share the limelight) and in an adult-only home. Don’t overlook Bean as your new best friend – become his forever home.
The Humane Society is also offering promotions for the month of June. All cats, one year or older, are exempt from adoption fees. All dogs over 6 months old have their adoption fees waived when you sign up for GoodPup, a virtual training program that will help you and your dog settle into your new life together. Apply today and take advantage of these June promotions.
