Biography

We adopted Ben in 2019 when he was two years old. He is a gentle giant. He is scared of fireworks but loves to cuddle and lay his big head on your lap. He can take down any large treat in minutes! He is very gentle around children and people. He is house broken and never chews up things around the house that he should not chew on. He knows basic commands and loves to please. He is very treat motivated.

Ben loves car rides and going on walks. He is typically a lazy bag of bones when he is at home but gets very excited for an adventure! We are working on his reaction to other dogs on walks and have been working with WAK-9 dog training. He loves to go on hikes but dog parks are not ideal for him.

For the first four years, Ben got along great with our other dog as they were inseparable. Last year, our other pup had knee surgery. Since she recovered, In the last year, the dynamic between them changed. It is difficult for them to be in the same room together without them fighting now, despite working with a trainer and consulting our Veterinarian. For the protection of both dogs and our young child, we are hoping to find a warm and loving forever home for Ben where he will be the center of attention and receive lots of love and playtime. This has been a very difficult decision for us because we love Ben dearly and whoever meets him, feels the same way.

Ideally, Ben would be an only dog. We would include a package of training sessions with WAK-9 training if you're local to Central Oregon to help with the transition from our home to yours. WAK-9 Training is very familiar with Ben and loves working with him.
