5 Feb 2017: We introduced you to Benni a few days ago when he was found on the side of the road unable to walk or move due to extreme starvation. Many of you expressed the s...ame horror that we felt for this baby boy. Our vet partner who is treating Benni can not even believe how emaciated he is. We wanted to update you all and let you know that he is in good hands and receiving the critical medical care that he needs. We are still deeply saddened when we look at his photos. How anyone could want this sweet boy to die is beyond words. Benni is brave, and his heart is full of love. He will get through this awful ordeal, he will beat the odds. We will see Benni's return to glory, and we can just hope and pray that the evil monsters who did this to him are revealed. Please help us to continue to give Benni the medical care that he needs. Donations are still needed and much appreciated at www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/donate
Thank you to all of you who made his rescue possible by sharing, donating, and praying for him. He needs every ounce of help right now.
2/5/17 Benni aka Benni is a tiny little fella full of love and energy, he wants nothing more then to be in you lap, he is well behaved, knows his basic commands, takes treats nicely, did great when other dogs walked by him, he is not an in your face dog so as always slow and proper intors with other dogs, he did listen well when he was told to stay when we walked another dog by him, he does well in his crate. Benni is not found of little children so a home with older kids is best. Benni also has EPI so a home who will be able to deal with his medical condition would be best for Benni. Benni would also do best with an experienced owner, he is strong and will lead you if you let him be the boss, he needs to know who the leader is.
