Hi, My name is Benny!
REQUEST TO MEET BENNY HERE:
There is a $75 Adoption Fee - All Supplies Included
If you are looking for the best little dog in New Jersey to add love, laughter, joy and companionship to your life and home – I’m all ears!
I am a young, very healthy mix of Boston Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier and Chihuahua, and one of the most devoted, intelligent, charming and sensitive little dogs you will ever meet.
I combine the best qualities of the breeds that go into my mix. I am a snuggle bunny who loves cuddling on your lap more than anything. I can be playful and fun at times, but I am sensible and sweet more often than anything.
I have been cherished since I was 8 weeks old by my owner, who loves me so very much. She has taken wonderful care of me, and helped me blossom into the magnificent pet you see before you. Things in her life have changed in the past year, and she is traveling extensively, and for long periods of time.
I love her so much, and having to be away from her when she is gone has been very difficult for me. I am not myself, and she notices it. She wants what is best for me, and we both feel that an owner who can spend all their time with me would be better.
We are hoping to find a loving, forever home with retired folks who are looking for a very devoted companion. I am a real nature lover, so would prefer to live in a more rural, country environment. I need a home with people who stay home, or who work only part time.
I take my time feeling comfortable with new people so I do need folks who understand that they will have to let me get used to them and my new surroundings. I will be skittish at first, but will come around in my own time. Patience will definitely be needed, and will be rewarded when I open my heart to you and show you what a sensitive, sweet, gentle devoted and charming little dog I am.
I get along quite well with other dogs and cats, so long as they are good with me. Children make me nervous, so I am not a good match for people with kids under age 12.
Please offer me a loving, forever home today. I can’t wait to meet you.
Love and licks,
