‘Benjamin’ (ADOPTION PENDING)
Hello – my name is Benjamin, but I also go by ‘Ben’ or ‘Benny!’ I am a purebred Dachshund, a little over 8 years old, weighing around 12lbs. I am an amazing little guy with a lot of love to give. I’m not really interested in toys, at least not that my foster family has observed. I am a great snuggler & love taking naps with my people! I will be happiest being wherever my people are, at home or anywhere you go! I am great out in public, however I do get a little nervous when people try to pet me but I won’t nip. I am crate trained, but I don’t really like it & will make a bit of noise when I go in it, but I would love it if I could sleep with my humans! I have had some accidents in my foster home but we’re working on it. I am always willing to ride in the car. I walk nicely on a leash but stick close to my family in the yard without it. I am a lap dog & even like to be carried. My foster mom says I’m good with other dogs, but will avoid them or ignore them if they get too close – again, I’d rather be with my person – but I do like to go to the dog park to run! I cannot be placed in a home with cats; I am great with older children, but little ones may make me nervous so I’m seeking a home with children over the age of 10. I’m not a high maintenance guy or an excessive barker. I am neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative, current on preventatives & recently had my teeth cleaned. Thank you for considering me, I hope I find my furever family soon! (DOB: 5-25-09)
