Shoppers at Whitty Books in the Kendall-Whittier district may have noticed a new helper in the shop in the last six months.

Bean is a year-and-a-half old pitbull mix who recently adopted Whitty Books owners Victoria Moore and fiance Julian DeLesDernier.

“We’ve had Bean a little over 6 months now,” Victoria said via email. “In addition to the store being in Kendall-Whittier, we also live in the neighborhood. Bean had been loose in the area for a few days, but no one had been able to get her to come to them, because she was scared and she is FAST. One night, when the temperature was about 17 degrees, she showed up outside the fence at our house. It took a few hours, but we finally got her to trust us enough to scoop her up and bring her in from the cold.”

At first Bean was very timid and mild-mannered, Victoria said, and she would bring her to the shop every day.

“As she has gotten more comfortable, she’s gotten a little bit rowdier, so now she is up here about half of the time!” Victoria explained. “I’m so happy she’s come out of her shell but now that she has, we’ve got a few things to work on, so she’s going to classes at Spirit Ranch now.”

Bean, whose favorite treat is literally anything, can often be found snoozing on top of the couch cushions by the window in the shop.

“Bean likes to greet customers, and is convinced that everyone who walks through the door has a treat for her,” Victoria said. “Most of our customers seem to love her.”  

“Like the store, Bean is a work in progress,” Victoria said. “She’s a rescue, so she has some quirks, but she’s so sweet and we’re happy to have added her to our little family.”
