Meet Benton

Benton is one of 7 puppies that have been surrendered into DCH care to be rehomed once their vet work has been completed.

Puppy on the left of the photo is Benton with 2 different coloured eyes,
Puppy on the right of the photo is Lorenzo

The puppies were born on 8/3/21 and are a Blue Cattle Dog X Staffy.
Mum is an AM staffy, Dad is a Blue Cattle dog.

These puppies have been living outdoors since birth and are Not house trained.
They will need basic training and obedience training and we would strongly recommend puppy school.
They are a little mouthy and that will need to be trained out of them.

Being a Cattle dog / working dog breed cross the dogs will be active and may get bored easily. They will need space to be active and to grow and will need regular mental stimulation and games.
They will need daily walks and exercise.

Puppies have been microchipped, wormed, flea treated, 1st C5 vaccinated and desexed 3/6.

Additional photos, and information will be updated in due course.

Currently located in Bligh Park however will be moving to Leichhardt.

Benton was adopted on 16 June 2021 after 2 weeks in foster care
