Welcome one year old, 35 pound Benny to rescue! He is having some medical issues addressed next week and will be ready to adopt in a few days. He will be wonderful for a family looking for a young dog and willing to take the time to complete his training. Stay tuned for more information on this little guy.
Benny has been adopted! This lucky little boy will want for nothing with his new family and his fur sister, Coco. Lots of toys, love and most importantly-food!! The family reports that all is well down in Austin and they couldn’t be happier with their new family member. Hook ‘Em, Benny!!
4/22/17 Update: Unfortunately, Benny’s adoption fell through, so we’re back on the hunt for his perfect family. While he waits, he’ll get comfortable…
5/7/17 Update: Little Benny — and I do mean little as he remains on the overly lean side — has been with me almost two weeks now. There have been a few surprises.First, he’s very well-mannered for a puppy his age. Namely, he’s completely housetrained. He is crate-trained, but resisting his heartbreaking but temporary cries of protest is quite difficult. He squalls just like a human baby. Secondlly, he’s a very quiet puppy. He needs coaxing to play, and I believe this to be a result of limited playful interaction with humans. He is quite happy, however, to run after balls. So far, I haven’t had any problems between him and my other foster, who is a passive senior female. They share treats and even swap uneaten remnants in their food bowls. In a word, there has been harmony in my home with Benny. I would add, however, that I’d like to test Benny’s reaction with less passive dogs, playful ones, as well as alphas.
Based on what I’ve seen so far, he’d be great for first time Bulldog owners and even families who want a puppy, but are scared off by the training (and mess) that normally comes along with it. Benny is extraordinary in this respect.
