This sweet looking little guy is about a year old. He was rescued off the euthanasia list and is a very darling fellow who just wants a second chance at a family and a forever home! Someone was not very nice with him and he can be very nippy when frightened. He also seems to take an instant dislike to some people and love others...so something went on in his past and we are working on helping him realize it won't happen ever again. He needs a very, very special home, free of children, free of extensive new faces in and out of the home.....somewhere he can feel secure and loved and not-threatened. He needs LOTS training and to learn to trust.!!! Training by an experienced person....this is not for the first time dog household....this is not for anyone thinking they can just give him some love and he'll snap out of it. This is an issue that must be dealt with by someone who knows how. We cannot stress that enough. He is still puppy and has lots of play in him. He is cautious with strangers so a household where lots of people come and go is NOT going to be good for him. Once he trusts you, look out. He's a little doll! He is crate-trained and gets along with other dogs his own size. For more information or to submit an application, please email swoolcott@cox.net. Rescue a forever friend!

About our adoption process: For more information or to request an adoption application (required), please email the dog's foster listed above (no phone calls, please). There is no commitment by submitting the application - it just helps us determine if the pet you are interested in will be a good match for you. Next is a meet and greet which will be arranged with the pet's foster. If there are other dogs in your household, we suggest bringing them to ensure everyone gets along. The standard adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $140 (cash or check) which includes spay/neuter, current vaccinations, microchip and collar/tags.

About Benji's Buddies Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Benji's Buddies is a non-profit (501c3) organization dedicated to the rescue and placement of pets into permanent, loving homes.

Benji's Buddies was founded by a small group of volunteers who value every pet and believe in their unique individuality and their ability to enrich the lives of others.

We believe that adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment and that no matter what turns life may take, the responsibility and obligation to that pet as a family member should remain constant. Pets are NOT disposable! They are living beings who feel love, fear and loss. Too often in rescue work, we see the result of human cruelty and negligence. These pets are desperate to be loved though their trust has been broken. We feel they deserve better!

We seek adoptive families who understand the meaning of this commitment and want to give a home to a pet in need. By home, we mean a place of love and security...for the rest of their lives.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU FOR OUR SUPPORTERS:
We recently put out a plea for dog food since we were running very low and donations had slowed. The response from individual supporters was great. Thank each of you so very much. A very special thanks to Merrick Pet Food and their extremely generous donation that assures Benji’s Buddies foster dogs will be well fed for quite some time. We cannot adequately express our appreciation for this wonderful gesture. We encourage you to purchase Merrick Pet Food and support this wonderful company who has made an incredible difference for our rescued dogs. http://www.merrickpetcare.com/
