Hi friends, my name is Ben and I am looking for my FURever home! I am a striking, 3yo, 70lb brindle fella, but don't you worry, it's all muscle, baby!

My favorite thing in the whole wide world is to play with my toys and my people. My perfect day would revolve around either going on an awesome adventure (I am very well behaved in the car), or even just snuggling up on the couch with some munchies and binging on Netflix..

I am healthy, fully vaccinated, potty trained, neutered and will be microchipped soon! I am also very well behaved for the vet and grooming!

Currently, I live with my foster family, and am working on my doggy and kiddo socialization skills. I do ok in the house with female dogs, but my foster mamma thinks I would be happiest as an only child. I walk well on a leash, and do not react to the dogs I walk past. I do have a prey-drive, so kitties and small dogs could be in trouble.. I do not like dominant male dogs of any size.

My foster family has been working on my human -child socialization and say Im doing good. I walk next to a stroller with no problem, do not react to tiny babies, and am good with older children. I have been tested around toddlers and did great!!

I am crate trained, and because of my love for food and trash, I stay in my crate while no one is home. I can sleep in my crate too, but I would really rather be sleeping right next to you in bed..

I could make a great-looking guard dog, although I would most likely lick the intruder to death while showing them where the dog treat jar is... My bark would intimidate the bravest of intruders.

I'm chilling in Nor Cal right now, but my foster family is willing to travel to help me find the perfect home. My adoption will include 2 free lessons or phone consults with my trainer, Trevor Wilson. If you or anyone you know is interested in meeting me, have your people email my people at
