Biography

Hi there, I’m posting for my parents as they try to find a new home for their handsome dog, Benji. My parents are having some serious health concerns and they are struggling to keep up with Benji. Benji is a sweet, senior dog. He loves to cuddle on the couch (and the bed) and loves to be petted. He enjoys going for walks and rolling around in the grass. He will bark to let you know he needs to go to the bathroom. He is an older dog and shouldn’t be left alone for long periods, he sometimes will have an accident if home alone for a long period.

Benji is food motivated and responds well to training. He’s a large dog and will pull on the leash if he finds an interesting smell. Benji doesn’t play much with other dogs, he tends to ignore them. I think Benji would do best in a house without other dogs and young children. He’s an older dog and enjoys quietly lounging around. A place with a yard (fenced) would be a great fit for Benji. Benji is 11, he was with one older couple for about 10 years before moving in with my parents about a year ago. My parents are sad to move him but their health concerns are making it hard to give Benji the best possible care. We are looking to find Benji a good home!
