Benny's Story...
Hi, I’m Benny. I am about two years old and am told I am a Beagle/Lab cross. I weigh about 40 pounds, but came to my foster home quite skinny, so we are trying to add a couple of pounds. I am a pretty good eater, but like my meal time to be calm with not a lot of activity around me. If I get nervous or distracted while I am eating I won’t finish. I am very polite with my food and will wait until you tell me its okay to eat. I take treats nicely and never nip or grab.

Even though I am a grown up I still have lots of energy and am always ready to play. I love walks, and get along very well with other dogs and cats. The house I am staying in now has a dog and four cats. I also like cuddles and love when you tell me I’m a good boy. I would rather have praise than treats or toys. But I do love toys, and am always up for a game of catch or tug. I love stuffed toys, but they have to be sturdy or I will chew right through them.

I learn very quickly and my foster Mom thinks that I would do very well with formal training, maybe even agility training. I have been to the off leash park with my foster family and a friend who walks me and my foster brother. I love to meet other dogs, but have to stay on leash sometimes because when I get excited to play my ears don’t always work the way they should and I forget to listen. My foster family has been working very hard to socialize me and show me how to play with other dogs and people. When my foster family went away on vacation I stayed with friends with a dog and cats and children. I was a very, very good boy. I like to play with older children and adults as sometimes I can be nervous around young children.

I am very adaptable and easy going. I have fit right in at my foster home. I am fully housetrained and will ask to go outside when I need to. I was not properly crate trained at my old home, so am afraid of the crate, but I have had the run of the house at my foster home while my foster family is at work and I am a very good boy, I don’t chew or make a mess.

I love to spend time with my people and get lots of cuddles and hugs. My tail hardly ever stops wagging! I know basic commands like come, sit and bed and am learning more all the time. I do like to sleep on the bed at night and usually sleep on my back next to my foster Mom. I love car rides too! I like to go anywhere and everywhere. I sit nicely in the car and don’t jump in or out until I am told to. When we go to visit my foster families friends or family I am very well behaved.

I went to vet for the first time recently and I was a very good boy. I was nervous and started to shake a bit, but I was polite to the vet and didn’t even flinch when I got my needles. The only part I didn’t really like was when he tried to shine the light in my eyes!

If you are looking for a little bundle of tail wagging energy that loves to spend time with his people I think we should meet!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Benny, a Cambridge Labrador Retriever/Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Beagle for sale in Cambridge, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Beagle dog from a breeder in Cambridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cambridge already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cambridge breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Beagle breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cambridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
