Benjamin

Chihuahua - Terrier - Young - Male
Adoptable Small Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrained

BENJAMIN is a one and a half year old TERRIER/CHIHUAHUA MIX. He is very small and weights six and a half pounds.

Benjamin came to us when good Samaritans got him out of the pouring rain. He had clearly been neglected, and out on the streets fending for himself for a while.

Benjamin was so scared the people were not able to touch him, or get near him, but managed to get him into a crate.

He was taken to or vet for medical treatment, and then out into a wonderful foster home with an incredible woman who had time, patience and love to give this special boy. We are delighted to say that after months of working with Benjamin, he now sits on her lap and is fully trained. He is fully housebroken, does not mark furniture etc., he is great on leash and loves to take long walks.He is fortunate to go to the beach with his foster regularly.

He listens very well to commands, loves to be petted but not to be carried or tightly held, gets along well with other dogs and with visitors, but sometimes tends to nip on pants leg in order to get attention. He is a great eater and not picky,

He barks when greeting a person but stops quickly.

He is crate trained – sleeps and rest there

Benjamin is very playful and affectionate and needs to be in a CALM,NON CHAOTIC home with an owner who is not gone all day and can devote love, time and attention to him. Someone who is an experienced dog owner would be best. Benjamin is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.
