Meet Benjamin! Adoption Pending

Meet sweet and loving Benjamin aka Benny. He is 5 years old and weighs approximately 70 pounds. Benjamin’s previous owner was unable to care for him and give him the attention he needed so he was relinquished to rescue. We believe he was never allowed in the house because when he first came into foster care, he was afraid to come inside. He now enjoys the comfort of the indoors.

In foster care, we’ve gotten to know Benjamin as an active, fun loving pup who enjoys playing with his foster fur brother. Having no previous training, he does tend to jump up in excitement when first greeting someone. He is very affectionate yet very energetic and gets excited easily. He learns quickly but some additional training is definitely needed. He does not know many commands and he tends to bark at squirrels, trash trucks and different noises.

Benny is an absolute love bug who loves his humans and everyone he meets. He is a Velcro golden who just wants to be close by. His foster dad is retired so he gets lots of attention. Although he is high energy, he walks well on a leash and does not pull. He craves a lot of attention and absolutely loves his toys, although he will not give them up easily.

Benny is housebroken and does well using a dog door. He has been left in the house alone with his fur siblings for up to 6 hours. He does counter surf and will steal food off the counter.

Benny is looking for an active family who will give him lots of attention and who is committed to providing him with training and exercise. Because of his lack of training and high energy, he probably would not be good for young children at this time. He would love to have a fur sibling but would also do well as an only dog. He has not been cat tested so we are unsure how he will do with cats.

If you feel you would make the perfect home for Benny and have completed both your application and your In Home Interview with SCGRR, please contact his rep at

At 5 years old, Benjamin’s adoption fee is $400.
