Facts about BEN

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Mixed Breed (Small) Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
en is a neutered, mixed-breed male about 2 and a half years old. Ben is a good boy who wants and needs a forever family he can love, and who will love him in return. He needs a family that will be committed to helping him continue to progress towards balance, security, and stability.

Ben came from a life of tremendous abuse and has been in rehabilitation with his current foster. He is making steady progress learning trust and gaining confidence. He is learning that his choices matter, he's learning how to walk nicely on the leash, he's learning how to be around children, and he's learning basic manners with both people and other animals.

Because of how his life has conditioned him, Ben still gets a bit nervous around strangers, so calm, assertive leadership is a must. He still cannot be kenneled and alone for more than a couple of hours at a time, but he is making progress. He is completely house-trained and will paw at his person when he needs to potty, but he must be kept on a lead and supervised while he's outside, as he is a jumper and he will attempt to jump the fence.

While Ben is good with dogs his size and a little bigger, he must not be around smaller animals (cats, birds, rodents, small dogs, and etc.) as he will attack them. The foster has been working with Ben to help him learn how to be around children. He has made tremendous progress in this area, but he still requires adult supervision, as he can get overly excited and nip.

Because Ben is in rehabilitation, the foster will work with the adoptive family so they can continue helping him progress forward towards balance and stability.

No small animals (small dogs, cats, birds, rodents, etc.)
