Hello! My name is Jelly Beaners but my foster mom calls me Beans! You can call me whatever you want, as long as you're waving! I am deaf so I react to hand and arm gestures instead of words! My foster mom can show you what they are, they're easy! I don't use light or vibration, someone else tried that on me and I got really bad obsessive compulsive behaviors from it, but my foster mom cured me right away and I have not relapsed in almost a year! She says I'm the easiest deaf dog she's ever fostered and she has experience with deaf dogs!
I guess it's really a bonus that I don't have any separation anxiety at all and I'm really good in my kennel! This is because I might not always care where my foster mom is! That is why i need a fenced in yard. If i got loose on my leash I think I'd rather run and explore things than make sure I stuck close to my family. I looove my family though! I love to cuddle and get pets and I am potty trained!
I really love dog friends but they don't always have as much energy as me so it can be a challenge! Sometimes i respect their space and sometimes I'm soo excited I can't help myself!! I think cats are really boring when they lay around like my foster siblings! I think they are really FUN to chase when they run from me, so I think I might have better luck if there are no cats in my new home, just to be safe! I do like kids, but its easy for young ones to forget how to keep me safe, so I would do best with older kids.
I rarely ever bark, but when I do it either sounds normal or it sounds like a cool screaming dinosaur! Since its so infrequent you'll probably only hear it when something REALLY awesome happens!
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
