Benji is an adorable sweet natured boy, who is looking for a special person who will have love and patience to build his trust.
Benji came to R2R as a very timid boy and he has blossomed in his months in foster. He has overcome his fear of so many scary things in pet-life, but he is still afraid of strangers.
Once he trusts you his sweet playful personality comes out and he is always delighted when you return home – greeting you with little jumps of joy no matter how short your absence. He loves getting ear and head rubs and will nudge you for more. And he has the most stunning amber eyes!
He likes to jump on his soft toys for a little play, and he will sometimes race after a ball! He would love a greyhound friend to play with or play chasey! He is currently living with another male greyhound who he gets on well with. He loves meeting new greyhounds especially if they are playful and he is never possessive over toys or food. He’s not interested in other breeds of dogs and out walking he will give them a quick sniff and wander on.
Benji jumps in the car and lies down quietly to travel. So, he is now exploring various parks and quieter streets. He prefers strangers to stay at least a meter away from him, but otherwise is happy to visit new places. But obviously, he is not yet doing shopping streets or busy cafes, but with the huge strides he's made, we think he might surprise us one day! It is essential that Benji has a confident greyhound companion so that he can enjoy pet life.
Benji is toilet trained and will go to the door to let you know he needs to go outside. He has excellent holding power and sleeps quietly through the night and will sleep-in until what-ever time you get up.
Benji needs a quieter lifestyle in the suburbs or country with a quiet, gentle family and we know he will build his trust in you quickly. Alas, he finds young children too noisy for him to live with, but he would cope with visiting grandkids.
Given a little more time and patience this delightful boy will make such a wonderful companion in a loving home. Can you open your heart for Benji?
