Benny Needs A Foster or Forever Home
My name is Benny and I am a dashing collie mix looking for the right home. I am the perfect size at about 40 pounds and am probably about 3-4 years old. As with all intelligent herding breeds, I like to be busy, so I would prefer an active family who can take me running or hiking, and who won’t expect me to wait alone all day long for them to come home. After my time in an overcrowded MD shelter, I have decided that I’m not a big lover of crates. What I really love is to hang out outside in a fenced-in yard with my human and dog friends.
I am shy at first, so don’t expect me to jump up on you and plant a kiss on your face. But I am very loyal and loving once I learn to trust you, and will enjoy as many ear and butt scratches and belly rubs as you can give. In my foster home, I have been learning how to walk well on a leash and how to play less roughly with other dogs. My perfect pet companion would be a calm and confident older dog who would not be pushy with me, and who would let me take his place doing all those fun, strenuous outings with the humans. My perfect humans would have a lot of patience and would be willing to work with me to build up my comfort level with new people and situations. And since they would want to maintain my pretty-boy good looks, they would need to brush me on a regular basis like any collie deserves. No young children please. I am an adult only home. Check out my video of how happy I get when I see it's time to go outside!
Benny is currently in a paid 'board and train' situation, and needs a foster home. If you think you offer that to Benny, please apply ASAP.
You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster home for a dog in need! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering on our website:
MMR covers the vet care, food, and tools to get started. You supply the love. Fostering saves lives. Sometimes a foster home is the only thing standing between life and death.
My adoption fee is $300, which covers the cost of routine vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, deworming, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, my microchip, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and any transport costs if applicable.
