Hi everyone ~ my name is Bennie and I’m a little over a year old. I am a happy boy full of energy, so if you are very active, I might be the perfect boy for you. I have energy to spare probably because I love life so much. I’m a crazy squirrel
chaser so a fenced, secure yard is essential. If I see one of those varmints, I go a little cuckoo-bananas! So, when I’m on my walks, I need a gentle leader and a strong arm to control my pulling if I get distracted by one of those critters. I love
people and other dogs but could be described as exuberant when I first meet new people or new furry friends. Overall, I need a strong leader to look up to ~without that I can get out of control at times so I need someone to tell me what’s
what in a consistent and confident voice and manner. My biggest failing is my food aggression. Don’t let anyone or any dog near me when I’m eating. I’m pretty food-focused but am fine if I’m left alone to eat in peace. Our behaviourist
will show you exactly what to do, so if you follow that to a tee, we’ll be fine. Because of my food ‘focus’, there should be no children or other pets in the family. Loud noises don’t bother me. You can leave me alone if you have to go out without me and you can touch me anywhere. I particularly love butt scratches and belly rubs and will lift my rear end high in the air when you scratch me or, if you’re giving me a belly rub, I will roll over instantly so you can reach my awaiting belly more easily. The doc says I’m healthy and my great foster dad says I’m sweet…except at mealtime. Oh well, none of us are perfect, right?

Bennie is currently being fostered North of Toronto, ON area. If you would like more information about Bennie please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
