Facts about Benny

  • Breed: Pug/Beagle Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Meet Benny! Benny is a 7 year old pug/beagle mix that comes in at a low-riding 22lbs. He is a ball of fun and energy when you want him to be, but most of the time, he is content to lay at your feet and snore away the day or night.

Benny is house trained and walks wonderfully on leash. He also loves playing fetch and tug of war. He is very much a fun-loving dog. His favorite thing to do when he is relaxed is just roll on his back and play with his toys that way. Benny has provided his foster family with lots of laughs. He has also provided them with lots of cuddles on some of the colder days.

He would love to find a forever home that is relatively quiet, with someone who understands that he is a slightly stubborn dog who doesn't like to be startled and will take time to warm up to people. Benny will really benefit from training and reinforcement of his good behaviors. He already knows how to sit and is very play and food motivated. He wants to please but just needs you to be patient.

Benny is in a foster home with 3 dogs right now and should be okay with other dogs if introduced properly. Benny will not do well in a busy household as he takes times to warm up to strangers. He prefers women but has been fine with his foster dad. He has not been introduced to cats.

Benny is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. He is the perfect package- healthy, smart, funny, and handsome!

Benny is being fostered in Maynard, MA.

The adoption fee is $375.

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

About Broken Tail Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Mission Statement:

Broken Tail Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit foster-based rescue organization dedicated to the rescue of unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats in urgent need. We work closely with local animal controls, animal shelters and rescue groups to ensure the placement of these forgotten animals. We will not discriminate on basis of health, age, or breed and will only consider humane euthanasia in cases of aggression or for quality-of-life due to untreatable medical conditions.

Our animals are vet examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered as needed and receive any and all medical treatment necessary prior to being placed into carefully screened permanent homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our pets for adoption are in foster homes. You must fill out an adoption application before being considered for adoption. Once your application is received, the foster parent will contact you to discuss whether the animal would be a good fit for your home and set up a meet between your family and the pet.

We also house several cats in our adoption center at the Framingham,Cambridge, and Everett PetSmart stores. Stop by to play with them anytime the store is open!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process includes an adoption application; a meet-and-greet between the prospective adopters, the dog, and the foster family; vet and personal reference checks; and a home visit.

Adopters must be at least 21 years of age.


Our adoption donation is generally between $300 - $400 for most adult dogs and is decided on a case-by-case basis. Adoption donations help defray the cost of transportation, care, and medical treatment.

Cats 6 months – 4 yrs: $125
Cats 5 yrs – 9 yrs: $100
