Benny's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Benny's Story...
When we saw Benny posted on the Town of Willington Animal Control Facebook page, we reached out to the ACO to see if we could help. When he'd gone to be neutered, a tumor had been found that they feared was cancerous. We offered to bring him into our rescue and deal with his medical issues.

He'd been at the Willington pound for quite some time, and before that, he'd been a resident of Bridgeport, Connecticut Animal Control - he had been living in kennels for a long time!

It took us some time to find a foster family for Benny, but finally that happened, and Benny became a part of our rescue.

We had the tumor removed, the pathology report came back, and the tumor was BENIGN - NOT CANCER! So our guy Benny is good to go! We are SO happy and relieved for him!

Recently Bennie had to move from his foster home, and is temporarily in boarding at our vet, while we find a new foster home - or preferably, a FOREVER home for him. We want to make sure his stay in boarding is brief! After months at the pound, Benny needs to be in a home!

He will do well in a home with another dog-friendly dog his own size. He would love some human siblings 13 years old or older. He should not be in a home with cats.

He is a young guy, about two years old. An active family would be wonderful for him - he would be a great hiking companion :)

Benny is a happy, friendly, lovable dog who will make a terrific new family member.

He has been waiting a very long time to find his forever home. So ... let's not keep him waiting any longer!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Benny, a Groton American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Groton, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Groton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Groton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Groton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Groton paves the way for another one to be saved.
