A snapshot about Bean Goods
“Bean Goods is a clothing and accessories brand (weiner dog themed) originally born in Portland, Oregon in 2011. It is inspired by our little black and tan dachshund, bean who is now 17 years old. He is our hero. When Bean was 4 years old he suffered a serious back injury that caused him to lose control of his hind legs also known as IVDD. We were devastated and didn’t know what our little guy’s outcome would be.
He underwent major reconstructive back surgery and miraculously made a full recovery. Bean needed a partner in crime to keep his spirits high so we adopted a wire-haired brother for him, joyles vanguard of the waldorfs (aka Van). Bean and Van have been slaying life as business pawtners and bffs ever since! Bean is the president of our company. Van is the VP.
We relocated to the LA area after spending a year on the road in our 13 ft travel trailer, the weenstream. We are thrilled to now be a part of the amazing community of so cal wieners and doxie enthusiasts!”
