Meet Benji

Benji is just a shaggy haired baby boy who sees the world with excitement and is happy with the sheer joy of being alive. He came from a local pound and he didnt have a name so what else could I call him but Benji?!!. Benji loves to play and he loves to give love so he would be an ideal family dog. He has settled in well with my two larger dogs and seems to enjoy their company so a home with another dog or someone who is home to keep Benji company would be ideal. He loves playing tug of war with a floppy snake and is especially fond of playing 'zoomies' with my male dog.

He is an active happy boy who also loves to go for his daily walk. He does like to spend his evenings indoors and I have been teaching him to stay in his dog bed whilst we watch television. He has met my cats and whilst he is just overjoyed to see them, he can be corrected to leave them be. Benji is very fond of his food as all growing boys should be! He isnt a fussy eater eating a variety of food from dry biscuits to vegs and pasta with no complaints. His sad begging eyes often see him get slipped an extra treat too! Benji will need secure fencing preferably 5ft and access to shelter whilst in the yard. But his primary goal is to be with you and to love you as he is not a dog who can be relegated to the yard. He just really wants a family of his own who he can share his time and love with.

Benji was adopted on 24 June 2012 after 1 weeks in foster care
