Critter Chronicles: Benji

benji-Hartman
Benji is still waiting. He can’t understand why no one wants to adopt him.  He has done everything that has been asked of him and is following through with his obedience in a trainer’s home with flying colors.  Benji has learned so much and actually enjoys being a wonderfully behaved dog.  He is a smart boy who wants to please, his only requirement, that you stay in charge and let him know what you expect of him.  Benji is housetrained, cratetrained and loves to go for car rides.  Since he looks for direction from his caregiver, it would be best for him to go to a home with a submissive female.  He does seem to be ok with cats and children should probably be at least teenagers.  Benji would prefer a fenced-in yard so he is able to play one of his favorite games which is fetch and yes, he does bring the object back and will drop it.  Let’s not let this handsome boy wait any longer for a home of his own.
