Let's Snuggle!!

Benji Trex was born December 4, 2004 and weighs about 18 lbs.  He is an absolute cutie that was put on this earth from a local, backyard, illegally run, breeding facility.   He is a fun, happy, little boy that, for some reason, was being kept in a crate most of the time.  Benji Trex is great on leash and jumped right in the car for the ride here.  He thinks other dogs are wonderful to run and play with!   He is not good with cats, but LOVES kids! 
 Update: Since I've been fostering Trex, he's become a happy, socialable, 
 funny (clown)little guy.  He slept in a crate for two nights, but now 
 he's moved to the big bed with my two dogs and me.  The first night he thought it was just for snuggling, not sleeping.  He had a couple accidents in the house, but now he's nicely housebroken.  He cries at the door and all three of them go together.  Trex loves running and playing in the snow, and takes his fuzzy toys out and buries them in the snow.  Bandit and Ariel then help him find the toys before they come in.  He's good on leash but I feel he would need a fenced yard. He has not been nippy at all.  He's a lover, not fighter, except when it comes to my cat.  He will do best in a home without cats.  I feel he will make some family very happy! 
Joyful Rescues has no funding except for our adoption fees and miscellaneous donations.  Pet care and vet bills are expensive -  you must be ready to take on this financial (as well as emotional) responsibility.

The Adoption Fee for this dog is $325.00.
Adoptions fees vary based on adoptability. In general our fees include spay/neuter, all age appropriate vaccines, Home Again micro-chipping & registration, a 4.5# bag of Science Diet food, worming & flea control - a "complete" pet.
