Male/neutered/shots current
9 years old
15 lbs

Benny was adopted by a terrific family in March 2018 but was returned as he had some quirky behaviors which we were not sure about. He had just been neutered and his life had been turned upside down but he was odd with the resident dogs, growly with the men in the family, and we all decided that it was not the right fit for anyone. He was having problems in his foster home, too, with the other dogs, so he was moved into a foster home with fewer dogs, fewer coming and goings, and no men. He is posted with Furbaby Rescue with whom we collaborate on many dogs as our missions intersect so much. We love doing the medical work. They love doing the posting and paper work. We share foster homes and are all great friends making two small groups able to help as many dogs as possible.


When you first meet Benny your arms will long to scoop him up and kiss and cuddle with him. He sits so still and looks like a stuffed doggie.
In the car he is silent and still. On Monday he went all the way to Mt. Vernon to get a new groom for spring. Someone had previously whacked on his face but when that grows out he will be able to have a perfect groom.

Benny has had a full wellness check, radiographs, blood work, urinalysis, dental with X rays and is in top shape.
He dearly loves having a human and prefers them to other dogs. We have conflicting information though about how he feels about men. He lived with a man before his lost his home. His first foster dad enjoyed him. He is spending the night with a man and they are both fast asleep together.
We think that he needs a quiet home without a lot of comings and goings.
Like many little stuffed doggie toys, he appears to have an “on” switch and can be very vocal when he needs to be. For three whole weeks we thought he never talked or barked or moved. Once he felt comfortable then he was willing to express himself.
He should be the only dog in the home, have adult adopters, and have a steady and regular routine. He might bark at other dogs while on leash so probably should stay away from dog parks. But, again, we are a bit confused. We will want an adopter to be within a reasonable drive in case an adoption does not work out.
He is a terrific little dog but just has some quirks we need to learn more about.
Benny is fostered in Olympia WA.
