bean is gentle and kind and kinda shy.
bean gets nervous if you come at him a little too fast.
bean probably has some horrible past abuse but we can't know for sure but he does cower if he doesn't know you and you try to pet him.
bean wouldn't walk out the front door when we tried to take him for his first walk. he didn't understand why anyone would want to leave the house. he was awkward on the leash and would either walk behind you or take 2-3 steps ahead of you then look back as if asking, 'am i doing it right? is this ok?'
bean follows me throughout the house and sits at my feet under the dining room table when i work. the only time he doesn't follow me is when i turn on the shower.
bean barks at times but usually because charlie starts it.
the click of putting on his collar or his harness used to make bean run away in fear.
bean is better though. we've had him for 4 weeks. he's been to 2 adoption events. he was supposed to go to another one this upcoming sunday but my brain sort of broke this morning.
i found myself cuddling bean and sobbing. i had imagined our household without him and it physically hurt.
his adoption counselor contacted me and i told her i wanted to adopt bean.
bean will never know that we put a ring on it. he probably assumed we did 4 weeks ago. that's ok though.
