Beans Courtesy Montclair Township Animal Shelter

Beans became a media sensation last week after the Montclair Township Animal Shelter posted a photo of the grinning dog who is up for adoption. “Is this real?” asked one poster. Another wrote, ”I see a little Jim Carrey!”

“Yes, Beans ‘IS’ real !!! …and yes, he ‘really’ is adorable !!! …and available for adoption !!! LOL,” the staff answered to the 130 likes and hearts Beans received last week.

Beans is a 10-month-old Jack Russell terrier/chihuahua mix. He is fully grown at 24 pounds, very active and needs regular exercise. Beans is good with other dogs, no cats. Teen kids would be best. Come meet Beans at the Montclair Township Animal Shelter, 77 North Willow St. It’s open daily from noon to 4 p.m. For information, call 973-744-8600.
