April 12, 2023: Introducing Benji, an adorable wire-haired terrier mix weighing 10 pounds and about a year old.
Although Benji is a "harder-to-adopt case," he has shown great progress and potential for a loving home and is a super sweet pup.
Benji came from a hoarding case with 14 other dogs, all of whom were scared and needed time to come out of their shells. Fortunately, most of them have found homes, but a few are still waiting for the perfect family, including Benji.
Benji is a shy dog who needs someone with patience and understanding to help him feel comfortable and safe. Once he feels comfortable, he turns into such a loving puppy.
Although he hasn't let his foster mom pet him yet, he has made remarkable progress by allowing her husband to pet him. He still needs work, but this is a significant step in the right direction.
A quieter home environment without children may be the best fit for him. With your love and patience, Benji will continue to thrive and become the happy, loving dog he is meant to be.
