I have a real cutie pie I would like to introduce to you….everyone meet Bean. This little pup is currently in the hospital awaiting surgery to possibly remove his leg up to the hip. You can see how much he has grown while staying at Langley Animal Hospital. They have had Bean in their care since the beginning of August.
Bean’s story is that someone was working in a home and threw some lumber accidently hitting him. They brought him to Langley Animal Hospital for treatment. The family could not afford the treatment and abandoned the dog at the hospital. You can see in his first puppy picture how swollen his little toes were. They removed the pad only of his leg but feel he needs to have his whole leg removed. The hospital has two choices, one to perform the surgery and release him to rescue or they will have euthanize him. (Hospital Policy) I have spoken with the staff and they truly are dedicated to this puppy and they want to avoid euthanasia at all costs. They have estimated the surgery to run about $1500.00 but we are trying to work other arrangements out with them. (UPDATE: Bean's total is capped at 1500.00 we only need $500.00 to go! Thank you for your help!)
I have offered to take Bean in our care and we hope he can have his surgery this week. He is a lively puppy and he is definitely the staff favorite. He is a little boy at 10lbs and estimated to be about 13 weeks old.
There has been a donation structure already in place for Bean so I will add their contact information first.
The hospital itself has been collecting donations to cover Bean’s expenses. (Boarding, treatment former surgery and future surgery) Please remember to include your name and address for a tax receipt and specify that your donation is for BEAN.

Since you did not allow me to take Bean to a Specialist and since I have been
cut out of his life altogether, I think you better take MY video off this blog
You DO NOT have my permission to use this video to solicit funds to pay for
surgery at THAT Drs.
This is a PRIVATE video taken with me, Bean and Steve. I said PICTURES, NOT
video. Please remove it and the pictures as well.
You wanted me to butt out - but you want to use my pictures and video? Can't
have it both ways. Thank you.
