Benji Hobart's Story...
Can we play, Huh? Huh? My name is Benji and my previous owners could not afford to keep me so they released me to the local shelter. There they thought I was too shy to be adopted and if it had not been for the Indiana Sheltie Rescue, my life would have been over. I am not shy, it just takes me a while to warm up to a person. My foster mom says I look like a min-Lassi. I get along fine with my foster mom's other dog and cats. I even like the goats. I weigh 25 1/2 lbs and am 16 1/2 inches tall at the shoulders. I am a beautiful shaded sable and white color with a white blaze up my face, white around my mouth, a large white collar, four white paws and a white tip on the tail. I think I am between 9-11 years of age, but I am lithe, lean and energetic. I love walks, running, playing and I get so excited I bark and jump. I need a fenced yard. I am a little hard of hearing but filled with so much of a desire to be someone's special dog. Will you be that someone?
