More About Benson

Benson came from a poor home where he wasn’t given any real care or attention.  He was poorly socialized and shy.  It’s the same home that Paris and Pearl came from.  He was lucky enough to be able move to a great foster home and here he has evolved from a withdrawn dog to an absolute wonderful dog. He went from hiding behind the couch to greeting his foster parents at the gate when they got home.

Benson always liked to walk on a leash, he was different dog on a leash, even from the beginning.  This was the key to him bonding with his foster family.  Going for walks turned into him wanting to be with his family as much as  possible.  He gets on well with other dogs and plays chase with his 3 foster siblings.

Benson is very scared of the family cats. He does not chase them but is definitely fearful of them.

He has never offered any aggression towards the young children in the family and welcomes their attention. He is not much of a barking dog as he will investigate with the others but is not vocal. He sleeps in the family bedroom and is house trained. He is a very low maintenance dog and he absolutely loves to share the whipped cream from the morning coffee!

Benny would make an absolute perfect addition to any home.

Benson is approximately 26lbs
