Hi, I’m Benny. I’m super sweet and chilled out. I love people of all ages, nap most of the day, sit politely when instructed and look forward to my daily walk.
I’m playful and love squeaky toys and the occasional zoomie. I like a 30-minute walk each day, and I’m pretty good about matching your pace, but of course I like to stop and smell the trees. I love seeing other dogs on my daily walk and giving them a sniff. I’m never aggressive to other dogs, but sometimes I get scared if one of them barks at me. I also get a little nervous at the sound of passing trucks or loud squawking birds. My preference is to keep things peaceful and to nap most of the day.
I am excited to see everyone who comes to the door. I’m friendly and gentle with children and I am incredibly sweet with pretty much everyone.
Sometimes I get overexcited and want to jump up but I’m responding well to being told not to. I’m still a little nervous travelling in the car and need to be helped in at the moment. But once I’m relaxed though, I can handle a long drive.
For the past year, I’ve been living with a small, older female dog – we co-exist and never fight, but I could take her or leave her. I think I would be fine as an only hound. I like kids and teens too, but could take them or leave them – as long as I have one loving human to bond with. I’m not clingy, but if I need some love, I come and snuggle my face in your lap or against your leg to let you know. Oh, and I love a good back scratch and face scratch.
I think I’d be most happy in a home with a couple or quiet family. A yard would be amazing (but it’s not essential as I’ve been living in a home with only a small courtyard). I’m fine being left alone throughout the day if necessary, but am so happy to see you when you get home and love being sprawled out on the floor beside you.
