Friendly Lab dumped again at high kill shelter; dog not allowed in home

Bean was just adopted; a two-year-old ultra friendly black Labrador retriever who now finds himself back at San Bernardino City Animal Control for the second time. Bean wasn't a bad dog; he simply wanted to be allowed inside of his new home to bond with his family. His new owner said no.

Bean's recent intake record at San Bernardino City Animal Control indicates he was picked up as a stray on June 11, and became eligible for adoption on June 18. On June 25, just one week later, "snuggly," cuddly, and super sweet Bean has been rejected again and spends his time alone.

A volunteer at the shelter reports the story:

"I AM SO UPSET RIGHT NOW! Bean is so wonderful and friendly. Based on his mannerisms and his teeth I think he is much older than two and needs to be able to go inside a house. I MET THE GUY WHO ADOPTED BEAN, and at first the guy said Bean was too big of a dog for him. Then as I was leaving, I saw him adopting Bean. He said Bean was so friendly he chose him. I even mentioned him being able to go inside and the guy said yes. WTH!!!!

Sadly, there was another interested party who wanted to adopt Bean at the same time; poor Bean - that was his unlucky day.

Bean must be adopted, rescued, or in a foster home by July 2. If you are interested in adopting this chunky boy, please call the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter located at 333 Chandler Place in San Bernardino and call (909) 384-1304. Reference Bean as #A467199.
