Our little pal Bender sure has had a tough time of it in his very young life. Bender is only 6 months old, and this little boy came to us from our Newark facility when he was found as a stray. We have to wonder if someone just dumped Bender because he had some skin issues that no one could bother to treat. We had no problem at all treating this little lovebug and after two months of good medical care, Bender is feeling like a brand new puppy! His skin is almost cleared and if you are interested in adopting him, you would just need to finish up his medication and bring him to our vet for a follow-up. Bender is completely worth the effort, he is an absolute joy to be with. He can't get enough attention and can hardly contain his excitement when you spend some time with him. He is very friendly, outgoing, and has a warm and bubbly personality. He doesn't have a mean bone in his little body and just loves everyone he meets. Bender is polite and well-behaved and like all puppies, he's very playful and active. He would love a home where he'll get plenty of exercise and playtime. He gets along great with other dogs and loves people of all ages. Bender is ready to meet you and bring happiness to your family for the rest of his life. File#26725 9/21/16
