Hey there I'm Benji your new furry friend full of wagging tails and boundless enthusiasm! You'll always find me with a toy in my mouth – squeaky or a ball you name it! I just can't resist a good playtime. Running around in the yard is my absolute favorite and boy do I love the feeling of freedom in open spaces. Training sessions are a blast especially when they involve food-based games. I'm a quick learner and I love showcasing my intelligence and playful side.

Unfortunately I'm not a fan of loud noises. Despite my zest for life I might need a bit of help building confidence. I can sometimes be fearful and I may be considered a flight risk while I'm adjusting to living in the city. I may lack confidence but my endearing goofy nature more than makes up for it.

As for training, I'm a work in progress. Building confidence especially for potty breaks and walks is on my to-do list. I'm getting the hang of housetraining – 80% success rate on a consistent routine. Just be mindful of changing things up; it might lead to a little oopsie on the carpet.

My days are filled with the things I love – playing with other pups fetching and zoomies! My energy level is just right – not too high not too low. A yard is a must for me to thrive and I promise I'll keep you entertained with my playful antics.

I do like to express myself with a bit of vocalization. I'm crate trained playful gentle and even-tempered. On the flip side new people make me a bit nervous and I prefer a calm environment especially in the city.

I'm quite the social pup – get along great with other dogs but cats are still a mystery to me. I'm best suited for older considerate kids and having a companion animal would be awesome.

In a nutshell I'm your lovable goofy Benji ready to bring joy and affection to a patient and understanding forever home. With your love and a consistent routine I'll keep making progress on my journey to confidence and happiness. Let's embark on this pawsome adventure together!

My foster guardian says: “What Benji lacks in confidence he makes up for in endearing goofy enthusiasm! He is a sweet and sincere boy who loves a good toy and playing with other dogs. You'll never need a cup of coffee again with his morning enthusiasm! He has some work to do to build confidence in the world - and it is amazing to watch his progress!”
