Facts about Benedict

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
BENEDICT is an adorable Black Lab puppy who would like to find a family and a home where he can learn and grow up to be a good dog. Benedict is about 3 months old. He weighed 16 pounds in December and we expect he will grow to be a medium to large-sized dog once fully grown. He is in the process of getting his puppy shots and will get his rabies vaccine during the first week of February at which time he will be ready for adoption. He has been neutered and microchipped. He is too young to test for heartworm but he has been on monthly heartworm and flea prevention since he was rescued. His foster says that Benedict is very cute and so gentle. He is a little on the shy side but loves children and seems to like kids better than he likes strangers. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Benedict if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer rescue to cover at least part of the cost of the veterinary care this dog has received.

Our Adoption Process...

In general, there is an adoption fee of $200 which helps to cover the cost of basic veterinary care, age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm and fecal tests, spay or neuter and microchip. If a dog has required medical care above and beyond the norm, the adoption fee could be higher. Fees are sometimes lower for certain dogs, so please inquire. If we are unable to arrange for volunteer transport for adoptions outside our area, it may be necessary for us to arrange for paid transport at a cost of approximately $140. Completion of an adoption application as well as a veterinarian reference is required. Our online adoption application can be found at www.adoptapet.com/TnDiamonds-in-the-Ruff/adoption-application/. We also have a paper application which you can obtain by emailing donnadeaner@gmail.com or call 330-760-2148 or 731-446-4013. Thanks for your interest in adopting a Diamonds Dog!
