Meet Benny! He had a long road to recovery and is now ready for adoption. Benny had multiple injuries when he was found at a workplace of one of AJL’s volunteers. It took him three months to recover and even during that phase he was always a very sweet and trusting fellow with a good attitude. He is a quick learner, and he now knows how to sit in order to receive his food bowl, to go outside, or to get released from his crate. When he is excited to see you, he will jump up on you to get attention, but if you turn away, he will remember to sit to get pets. Benny is very quick to bond with his humans. He follows you around, and he lies down nearby when you stop moving. He is soft and cuddly and likes to snuggle, and he waits for an invitation before jumping on the couch or getting in your lap. He is very attentive, and he looks in your eyes trying to figure out what you want him to do. He usually comes right away when you call him, even if he is sniffing around the yard. He loves attention, and he likes to have his fur brushed. He also enjoys chewing Benebones nylon bones and maple sticks. He is good with humans and other dogs. He has not been exposed to any cats during his time with AJL. Benny sleeps in his crate at night. He seems to like being in the crate, and when you open the door he walks straight in. He doesn’t bark often, but hearing other dogs barking sets him off, and he also barks when you get home and he is excited to get out of the crate to be with you. He is a sweet, loving, cuddly, smart and playful dog that is finally ready for his forever home. *** Benny will be ready to meet potential adopters after his final check up in mid-September.
