Meet Bean

Bean wants a snack!Name: Bean
Age: About five years old
Breed/s: Border Collie
Nicknames: Beanface, Crazydog, Wild-dog
Arrival Story: Bean was adopted from Richmond Animal Care and Control in April of 2010. She had heartworm and various behavior problems when I adopted her, and several people had already withdrawn adoption papers on her. I was at RACC to look at a younger dog, but something about the black, shaved dog with the wild bark appealed to me. Haven’t looked back since!

Favorite food: Homemade liver treats.
Special talents or skills: When she escapes her lead during agility, she shows me how she can do the WHOLE COURSE by HERSELF. Also insane talent at keeping the backyard squirrel-free.
Biggest fear: Thunderstorms
Most annoying habit: Having to scour the kitchen for even the tiniest morsel of food that may have dropped on the floor.
Arch-nemesis: Garbage-man

Bean is an awesomely devoted dog that took the place of my departed Rollo, a chow that accompanied me since I was twelve years old. I would have never guessed that Bean (so named because she would jump like a jumping bean every time I had snax) would have been able to fill the big shoes left by Rollo. She’s whip-smart and currently on her second round of agility classes, after passing Canine Manners and Agility A at the Richmond SPCA. I tell people I rescued her, but I think the reality is that she rescued me.

Sassy Bean
