Adopt Benji


Benji's approximate date of birth is March 23, 2020. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been 4DX tested. His adoption fee is $450.00 + tax. Benji Man is a little dude with a huge personality. He loves to snuggle in laps, he is super excited to go for walks and he is a man who knows what he wants! *As Benji settles in to rescue we are beginning to learn a little more about him. He is a super sweet little guy and loves to snuggle and give cute kisses. He loves to go for walks and will do a high vertical jump/bounce expressing how excited he is. He is very excitable on his walks when he sees squirrels, people, or other dogs. He can pull hard and will bark loud at them. He is kenneled overnight and does ok when the house is quiet. He has had a few accidents in his foster home, so a patient understanding new owner who is ok with working with this will be needed. He has cute zoomies and loves to run around with toys. He has been ok with some dogs and not ok with others and he barks at the cats that he sees, but has not had direct contact with any. We have been told from his previous owner that he is not good with children. It may be fun for Benji to just tell you a little more about who he is! Hi de ho everyone! My name is Benji; Ben Ben; Bouncy Ben; Benji Man. Whatever you wanna call me is fine, I like them all. I think that it's pretty cool to have so many cute names for me. I really like them all and am happy to respond to any. Not to brag, but I am ridiculously adorable! I know; cuz I have been told it so many times so it has to be true. I guess that I am a Lhasa Apso/Dachshund mix.. I have been told that may make me prone to liking to bark at squirrels, but in my defense.. there are so many of them right now! Cats are new to my world, so it may take me a while to have a chance to get used to them. I have liked to bark at the ones in my foster home, but I am getting better though. Maybe a confident cat that stands their ground with dogs may work? Just not sure yet. I have been nervous around dogs that are larger then me and have some sort of of reaction to them that doesn't bring out the best in me. I would have to say that I would not like to go to dog parks to meet strange dogs. They would make me way to uncomfortable and it wouldn't be fair to me to have so many unknown dogs approaching me.. especially if they are my size or larger. I have also not been comfortable around young children. They too, make me nervous. So, enough of the things about me that you might consider not perfect. I am amazing in so many ways that I'm pretty sure that there is someone out there that would think that I am just PERFECT; just the way I am!! I am adorable, cuddly, sweet and love to give cute kisses. I am happy to see you and love being by you. I sleep in a kennel quietly over night but I really think it could be cool if I had a chance to sleep in a bed with my new person and may just snuggle until you chose to start the day. I enjoy to go for walks and I love to explore different things and smells. Remember though, that I am pretty interested in squirrels right now, so keep my leash secured in your hand! I think that my perfect new home would have a securely fenced in yard. If you don't have a fence, understand that I feel that every squirrel needs to be "'inspected", so a secured harness and leash is needed. I don't think I should could to a home with a larger dog unless that dog doesn't scare me. I really just want someone to love me and help me with being the best companion that I can be. I promise to give you all the snuggles and kisses in return! If you think I could be your perfect companion; or if you would be interested in meeting me, please complete an adoption application at: Saving Tails Animal Rescue (STAR) is a 501(c)3 registered no-kill, non profit animal rescue.
