Small people, big people, I love people! Wait… small dogs, big dogs, I love dogs! Oh, and cats too, so long as they’ll play with me, but I know when to back off. My name is Benny and I’m a year old basset/beagle mix with a heart of gold. I’m house trained and kennel trained and will sleep in the kennel at night or snuggle in bed with you. I’d prefer to snuggle but if you don’t think the bed isn’t big enough I can sleep in the kennel without any issues. I get really excited to see new people and just want to play with you so I may jump a little, but if you tell me to sit, I’ll calm down just a little to let you love on me and belly rubs are the best. I’m working on my leash manners and my foster mom says I’m doing pretty good when I’m by myself, but if you walk me with other dogs, I just want to play and bounce around. I know “sit” and “down” and am trying to learn “off” and “stay” but it’s so hard because I can’t hardly sit still. I’m not aggressive towards other dogs or people, but I do like to steal all the toys so if you have a dominant dog we might have to try to work things out (I have a foster sister right now that I’m working on). I don’t have food aggression but I love food and will try to eat everyone’s food if they let me. I’m really good when my foster parents are eating, I don’t beg or anything. I’d prefer to go home with a family who is very active as I have a lot of energy. I like to have a fenced yard so I can run around without my leash and I don’t think I climb and I know I don’t dig. I have a 6 foot wood fence at my foster mom’s house and have never tried to climb or jump on it.
Benny is current on his vaccinations, neutered, HW negative, and micro shipped.
