EUGENE, Ore. – An outgoing Chihuahua named Beans arrived at Greenhill Humane Society on July 13 as a transfer from another animal shelter.

Beans is a sweet, loving, playful dog with plenty of pep in his step for 12 years old. He would make a wonderful addition to a mature family. Since he is an older dog, children may be too much for him.

Beans appears to get along with other dogs, but would do best with another small, gentle canine companion. He should meet any potential doggie friends before going to a new home. He may also be ok with a gentle, dog-savvy cat.

Beans still likes to go for short walks around the block, but at this age his energy level is low, and he is more interested in cuddling at home with his favorite people. He loves getting attention and is not shy about asking for it.

Beans weighs about 6 pounds and has a medical waiver shelter staff will explain. His fee is $100, which helps pay for shelter expenses such as vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, post-adoption support and more.

Beans was Tuesday’s Pet of the Week on KEZI 9 News. Every Tuesday, KEZI showcases a homeless pet on the Midday newscast at 11 a.m. and again at 4 p.m.
