Male, Adult
Acton, MA
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Not good with kids, Not good with dogs, Needs special attention, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained,
Benny is an incredibly sweet Rat Terrier mix who’s full of life and love. He is almost 8 years old (birthdate 7/4/2016) and is a total cuddle bug for the vast majority of the day, especially when he’s snuggled up with his person - but definitely needs some space to run around (a fenced in yard is ideal) and plenty of opportunities to go on some nice long walks. As a rescue, Benny has fairly significant separation anxiety and some resource guarding tendencies around other dogs, which means he’s best suited for a home with no children under 18 and no other pets. We love Benny with all of our hearts, but with a toddler and another dog at home, we have come to the incredibly difficult decision to help find Benny a more suitable environment where he can be the center of attention.
