***UPDATE: Benji fka as Arf- 4 x Manhattan ACC deathrow survivor is in his forever home !! A big THANK YOU to Dave & Diane for opening heart and home, also to Kevin for fostering Benji so he could survive!! From Benji’s humans: Benji is settling in very well. He loves his walks, Buster is teaching him to play ‘catch me if you can’, and he wants to meet every person and dog he sees.
We took him on his first hike yesterday. It was slow going at first because he had to sniff every bush, rock, and tree. ***
BENJI THE CUTEST THING ON FOUR PAWS NEEDS A HOME ASAP!
Upstate NY: BENJI fka Arf, is a super cute 3 year old 46 lb. Medio Podengo or Podengo Mix who is a very lovable boy. After being surrendered to the city shelter, Benji developed separation anxiety and so, would now do best in a home where someone either works from home or has lots of time to spend with him. Benji wants to be part of a pack! He does like other dogs and is fine with kids 12 and up. Here is what Benji’s foster Dad had to say about him:
“I have never in my life encountered a more loving and spirited dog. He loves to be outside, enjoys meeting new people but especially children. He gets along very well with other dogs of all sizes. He is not territorial or aggressive in any way. He is as affectionate as they come with great energy, sprinting all over the yard and receiving you with love each time you arrive home. He also listens very well. He knows how to sit on command and shake hands (paw). He needs someone who has some space outside and someone who is regularly home. When I met Benji he was shy but so
joyful and relieved to be out of that shelter. After a nice bath his coat glowed and so did his character. You will never find a more loving creature than Benji.”
Benji is neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped. To meet him, please contact us at [email protected] or apply at www.amsterdog.org. Thanks for caring about Benji!
