(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Spayed or Neutered,
Benny is a very sweet and ready to cuddle pup. He can be shy and timid at times. He would very much like to stay in your arms or laps to get cuddles but if a bigger pup comes along, he does not argue much if he can’t stay there. He is a sweet and easy going puppy.
Benny's family should understand that he is working on potty training. This is an on going process for the first year of a puppy’s life. Benny s doing very well with this. He is using a potty pad like a CHAMP! And he is also learning about kennels especially at bed time. He would really like to snuggle up in bed with you for sure, but you should make sure he is completely potty trained before you let him stay in bed with you over night.
Benny is ready to be with YOU!!!
All of Benny's vetting has been done by my personal dogs' vet. The following is a list of what has been done for Benny
All 4 - DA2PP shots (Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2 (Hepatitis), Parvo, and Parainfluenza)
Tested, Treated (if needed), and retested for giardia and coccidia
Iverhart heartworm preventative
Simparica fleas and ticks preventative
There are two categories of vaccines: “core” vaccines that are recommended for all pets, and “non-core vaccines” which may be recommended by your vet based on lifestyle and exposure risk. The core vaccine for dogs is the Rabies vaccine, which is required by law. The second core vaccine for dogs is often referred to as the DA2PP or DHPP vaccine. This stands for “Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2 (Hepatitis), Parvo, and Parainfluenza”, meaning that this vaccine protects against FOUR different diseases.
It is especially important for puppies to begin a series of DA2PP vaccines at six to eight weeks of age, as natural immunity obtained from the mother decreases and puppies become very susceptible to potentially life-threatening diseases such as Canine Parvovirus (Parvo). Parvo is transmitted through feces and can remain in the environment for at least one month, and up to a year if the conditions are right. This means that puppies do not need to be directly exposed to another dog that has Parvo in order to contract the disease, and caution is advised when choosing where and how to socialize and exercise your pup. We recommend avoiding exposure to unknown dogs or public places until your puppy has finished their vaccine series. BUT, all A.M.O.R. puppies (1 year old and less) have all FOUR shots. They are safe to join you and your family on your outdoor adventures and you can rest at ease.
Non-core vaccines for dogs include Bordetella, Influenza, Leptospirosis and Lyme. The Bordetella (aka: Kennel Cough) help to prevent highly-contagious respiratory diseases, and are essential for dogs that may be exposed to other dogs, especially in group settings such as dog parks, daycare, or boarding facilities. All A.M.O.R. dogs and puppies are given a Bordatella vaccine. Bordatella boosters are given every 6 months.
The above link is to provide you information regarding why deworming is so important for all dogs of all ages (and for their families).
All A.M.O.R.s are dewormed upon entering the rescue and then again 5 days before their health certificate visit (when they have been adopted and ready to travel). This dewormer is issued per our vet. And all pets are tested, treated (if needed), and retested for coccidia and giardia.
A.M.O.R. provides you with this information so that you can be aware of the work and love that is given to each pet. Each puppy has visited the vet AT LEAST 5 times during their stay with us. They have seen the vet 4 times for their shots and will see the vet 1-2 more times prior to transport in order to obtain a health certificate for travel. Adult dogs have seen the vet AT LEAST 3 times. Two visits for their shots and 1-2 visits prior to transport in order to obtain a health certificate.
Are you ready to cuddle with sweet Benny???
All animals receive a health certificate (stating that a licensed veterinarian saw the pet and deemed it healthy for travel, but is not a promise of perfect health).
Please email for an A.M.O.R. application in order to be considered.
Please note: this pet is located out of state.
