A sweet beagle mix named Bean had spent the first three years of his life tucked away in an outdoor enclosure. According to PETA, poor Bean’s house was filled with trash, his only shelter was a rotting doghouse. PETA replaced it, and it is disheartening to know that the only affection he received came from PETA’s fieldworkers who visited him. They gave him water, food, companionship, and his first toy ever. PETA eventually persuaded the owner of Bean to give up the dog and let them take it away.
In a heartwarming video shared by PETA, the group explains that the pup was recently placed with a forever family after spending “the first three years of his life locked in a small outdoor pen.”
PETA describes Bean’s previous living arrangements as “filled with trash, his only shelter a rotting doghouse until PETA replaced it, and the only affection he received came from PETA’s fieldworkers who visited him as much as they could, giving him water, food, companionship and his first toy ever.”
“But everything changed when Bean’s owner finally agreed to let PETA find him a new home — and this year, for the first time, he’s celebrating Christmas not only indoors but with a family that loves him,” the group wrote in the description of a video documenting Bean’s first holiday season with his new family.
