Bean is an 8-month-old Labradoodle that is enjoying puppyhood. While Bean’s owners were out on vacation for the holidays, Bean was playing with some other dogs when he got a fracture to his front leg.

Fortunately, thanks to pet insurance, his owners were able to get all necessary veterinary care for Bean.
