Facts about Benson - Cute as Pie!

  • Breed: Schnauzer (Miniature)/Fox Terrier (Smooth) Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
This slipper-loving precious boy is Benson aka Bennie and is a white schnauzer/fox terrier mix. He is amazing!

Bennie has all the good of a great dog - affectionate, loving, kind, loves kids, adores other dogs to no end, and is soft and silky and sweet. He weighs about 16 lbs and is probably 1 1/2 to 2. He came from deplorable conditions and had no hair and now all his beautiful non-shedding fluff is back!

He is learning and it's clear that his humans made him beg for human food and he is breaking that habit. He has learned "stay" and "sit" and is eager to please you. He is very food motivated and loves being rewarded.

He is so stunning. He looks all schnauzer but for longer legs and a fox terrier longer jaw. Handsome blend.

In his foster home, he plays hard with our other two dogs, both little, and they have a hoot of a time, endless love and fun. It's very cool to see, but get out of the way or they'll tumbleweed past you!

He also has the schnauzer characteristic of barking when people come to the door. A hard habit to break in that breed so we put him in the other room and then answer the door.

Bennie is young and needs toys to chew on or he will find a good slipper.

He is updated on all shots and neutered and his adopt fee is $495. We are solely non-profit and the fee covers the medical put into him to prepare him for a great home.

About Saving Great Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

Saving Great Animals is a match-making rescuer. We have no public facility. We work individually to do our best in matching your desires and lifestyle to the best animal pal. We love what we do! We are Seattle-based but have representatives in all parts of Washington state and the Pacific Northwest.

We are volunteer-based and everyone in our rescue works full time at paying careers,

Saving Great Animals has been working tirelessly as a no-kill, foster-based rescue for the last 9 years. We also are connected to a wide network of foster homes and numerous shelters around the state to find permanent homes for animals that are deserving of love and a family. Many of the dogs and cats we rescue would otherwise face unecessary euthanization.

We also work hard to bring dogs and cats into SGA directly from their former home so they animals will never enter the shelter system which has environments that can be very stressful for them, even though we know so many shelter workers who are tireless too in helping the animals.

A very small percentage of our dogs come to us from our sister-shelter in Taiwan, where these dogs are typically rescued from deplorable circumstances.

All of our pets available for foster or adoption also are listed on PetFinder at (http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/WA418.html).

To contact SGA directly, please email info@savinggreatanimals.org.


If you are interested in fostering or volunteering, we want to hear from you! We are finalizing our 501 C-3 status; and do appreciate any and all donations as 100% of our funds, every penny, goes to the animals. We are always extremely tight on funds, frequently dipping into our own pockets. All donations can be paid by paypal by sending to perrin@savinggreatanimals.org
