From the Foster:  Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. My name is Benedict, but I answer to Ben, Benny, or One Eyed Benny as I only have one eye. It’s hard to tell from my pictures, but I’m a bit on the mature side, as such I get stiff in the hip area and I may or may not have an extra couple of pounds on me. Who wants to exercise when their hips hurt? But never fear, I take medicine which helps and I go on walks which I really enjoy. Also, these people say a home with two or less steps and more carpet/rugs than hardwood are in my best interest. I live with two other dogs and a cat, I don’t mind them, they don’t mind me but I prefer the people in the house. I like to sit on my foster dad’s lap at every opportunity, in fact I will bark at him to let him know I want up and he’s nice enough to pick me up and put me on his lap. I have my own room complete with a crate but I have no need to be in it because they say I’m a good boy when left home. I enjoy apples, pears, green beans and car rides. These people have me eating fruits and vegetables in an effort to help me slim down. These folks don’t have kids; however they say only older respectful kids for me.

Let’s talk potty business. I know to potty outside, I especially enjoy pottying on car tires, but I cannot, no matter what I do, hold it for several hours. I’M OLD, I CANNOT HELP IT. Foster mom and dad say my furever people must be home more than they are away. With that said, know this, my way of alerting you that I need to go out is very discrete, very. 

Signing off for now, thanks again for reading,


All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities

If you would like to meet/adopt this animal or anyone else, then please fill out an adoption application at  and the foster(s) will be in touch!  Keep in mind that there may be multiple applicants applying for the same animal(s).  You only need to complete 1 application for multiple animals that you're interested in.

Note   - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal.  We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.

If you would like to be a foster for Secondhand Hounds, then please fill out a foster application,   You can choose the type of animal you'd like to foster and we will supply everything you need (food, collar, bowls, crate, etc.) while the animal is in your care.

Thanks for your interest in Secondhand Hounds!
