Benjy is approximately 1.5 yrs and weighs 22 lb. terrier mix.
Benjy is a typical terrier. He is devoted and protective to his foster people and home. Benjy has an abundance of energy & loves to play fetch. He is smart and knows heel, sit, lay down and will beg for treats.
His foster mom is working to socialize him. He is wary of strangers & is vocal about it. It makes him nervous to see the young boys in his foster home rough housing. Benjy needs a strong leader that will continue socializing him with people and other animals. He has settled in with his foster family and likes to cuddle. He might be best suited to a home where he is an only pet with no small children. If you can provide the right home, please contact email@example.com
