A friendly boy in his nature, Benji loves nothing more than spending quality time with his humans. If he's not walking by your side on a fun, scent-filled walk, he will enjoy participating in his training or snuggling up next to you on the sofa.
Despite being a slightly more ‘mature’ chap at nine-years-old, Benji still has plenty of energy and is feeling better than ever after losing five kilograms with the help of his carers.
He is hoping to find a supportive family who could help him to continue on his fitness journey, and who won’t leave snacks or meals unattended when he is nearby.
As well as helping to keep him feeling fit and healthy, Benji’s adopters should be understanding of his sensitive side that is not always immediately obvious. He can often find the world overwhelming and needs a quieter, adult-only household without any visiting children.
Benji will happily greet other dogs when out and about but due to his dislike of sharing his favourite things, he will need to be the only pet at home.
A home with multiple residents would be ideal for this affectionate chap as he prefers having company, rather than spending time alone.
Currently residing in a temporary foster home, Benji has already proven himself to be a delightful houseguest. Having experienced quite a bit of change in his later life, he may take some time to adjust to new situations, so his potential family should be patient with him and allow him to take each day as it comes.
