Benny is a wonderfully sweet calm neutered male Miniature Pinscher and German Pinscher mix, about 20 lbs., and is nine years old (although behaves like a five year old). He loves people and gets along with other dogs. He will chase a tennis ball but usually just wants a person that he can be close to and provide the companionship he is missing. He walks well on a leash but needs some training for commands. Benny had lived in a home with an elderly gentleman who passed away leaving Benny and his sister Joon behind. Joon has found her forever home and now Benny is left behind waiting for his forever home. Benny would love to be in a home with one or two adults. He would also be fine with respectful dog knowledgeable children. He loves being talked to and petted and rides really well in a car. He has attended many community outreach events. He is housetrained, current on all his vaccinations, and is ready to have a soft bed in someone’s home to call his own. For information about adoption for Benny call County Animal Services at 681-5285.
