Sanctuary Update: Ben (or Gentle Ben) fully lives up to his name with those he knows and trusts. He is sweet and cuddly and will self entertain with toys, and look adorable while doing so. Ben is just as sweet as pie, but he can be overprotective and uncomfortable with strangers in his home. Ben was ill when Milo first rescued him and nursed him back to health and it seems that he had a very rough start in life, but was extremely sweet in spite of it all. Once he found a loving adopter and a safe home, he misguidedly felt that he needed to protect it, even from visiting friends. His adopter loved him but her home had visitors regularly and she could not keep him and he came to stay with us at the sanctuary where he is waiting for someone that lives a quiet life to come and fall in love with him, and teach him that he does not have to be the protector and that they will keep HIM safe, not the other way around. We would recommend him for a home with either a non-alpha dog or as a single dog, and would not recommend him for dog parks at this time. Please send interest in fostering or adopting Ben to email@example.com;
