Facts about Benny

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
I'm Benny! I was born with deformities but my foster mom says I don't seem to notice. My front legs are bent and twisted and my paw pads developed on the tops of my feet. If you want to look at some videos of how I move around check out:
There's a few videos where you can see that even though it looks like I would have a hard time I actually get around really great! As long as I have soft surfaces I can run around without any discomfort. I love playing with other dogs and toys are my favorite! I'm quite hyper.

As of now the vet says a surgery would only cause me a long and painful recovery which seems pointless considering It might not work and I'm so happy right now. Although, considering the way I have to walk and run on the wrong bones it's almost a guarantee that one day I will have arthritis or joint issues. If one day I need a wheelchair to make me comfortable The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation would love to help the adopters get me what I need.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a team of independent rescuers who's main goal is to rescue dogs from the shelter/streets or bad situations and find them loving homes where they will be part of the family and get spoiled rotten!!!
There are no words for the feeling we get when one of our rescues gets his or her forever home. No-one can understand until they do rescue.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do mainly private adoptions from Petfinder and Adopt A Pet but also join other groups in adoption days in Sherman Oaks, the Pacific Palisades or Larchmont Village. We also make fliers if need be.

Our Adoption Process...

We start with an adoption application form, home-check and contract stating if the dog needs to be returned he/she comes back to us and NOT the shelter.

We charge $250 for dogs under the age of one and $200 over the ago of one.
