Meet Benny,He is a very sweet 10 month old looking for his forever home. Benny is happy and playful and loves attention. Benny is social and playful with other dogs, and respectful and a bit scared of cats. He likes to play fetch, and maybe a little keep away. Benny is also a snuggle buddy, if you sit near him to give him some love, he tries to find a way to become a lap dog. He seems unaware of the fact that 50 pounds might be a bit too much dog for a lap. Benny would love to go to obedience school to finish learning all the basic commands, he is food motivated and should do well in the group classes. He will need people to work on his puppy behavior of 'mouthing' when trying to get people to play with him. Consistency and training will help him overcome this bad habit. A fenced yard for him to run and play would be ideal, although he is gaining leash skill and improves every day on walks. Apply today to learn more.

His foster parents are Shawn P.    The adoption fee for Benny is $300.

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.

Please note that we do not ship dogs and we cannot guarantee that a long trip to see a foster dog will result in an adoption or taking the dog home on that day.

It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. The Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offers a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
