On foster

This handsome fellow is looking for a new home where he can be the centre of your world. Benji is a sweet older lad who despite his age is very outgoing and energetic.

Benji loves to be on the go and using his brain for training, play and exploring.

Benji is a little hard of hearing so his new owners will need to be willing to teach this old dog new tricks in the form of sign language, however they should not be fazed by this as he is a bright lad and picks up new things very quickly.

Benji loves to play ball and loves selecting his toys form the drawer himself, he is happy to play with you or to entertain himself chasing his ball round and round the room.

Benji is finding life at the Centre hard as he is not keen on going to the toilet in his kennel and although he comes out for regular breaks it is not ideal for a dog like him. He also finds the hustle and bustle of the Centre a bit overwhelming and this can cause him some frustration. He is a little anxious about being left in his kennel so his new owner may need to get him used to being left.

Benji walks nicely on a lead and waits nicely at doors,what a gentleman.

We think he would be suited to someone who has had dogs before and someone who has plenty of time to spend with him as he really is a people dog. He would be fine to live with older teenagers but we do not feel he would appreciate living with children as he has been used to an adult home.

Thank you so much for your interest in adopting an Abbey Street rescue pet.
