Critter Chronicles: Benji

benji-hartman
Benji has been waiting and waiting for his forever home.  Since he was not taught much as a puppy living with an elderly caregiver, we sent him to live with a trainer to become the best he could be.  Benji has followed through on his end of the bargain and you could not ask for a better trained, loveable guy.  Besides being trained in all the necessary obedience, Benji is also off leash trained, crate trained and is housebroken.  He loves to go for car rides and is a great companion in the car.  Benji can go to a home with cats and other dogs but a well behaved, quieter dog will suit him best.  We want any children to be at least teenagers.  Benji will need a daily vigorous walk and would love a large fenced-in yard to play ball in.  He adores the ball and will bring it back to you every time.  Benji must go to a home where his caregiver is a strong leader and will let Benji know that they have everything under control. We are offering a couple of training sessions with Benji to a new approved adopter.   You will not be disappointed in this boy.
