This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. Ben is a 4-5 year old Akita mix rescued from a kill shelter out of Texas. He sadly spent much of the past year in a kennel prior to finding himself in the loving care of the Pound Pullers. After only 1 month in foster care he's made excellent progress and his loving affectionate personality is coming through. He enjoys running and playing with other large dogs (he loves time spent with his Great Dane foster brother). He is looking for a forever family familiar with his breed, large dogs, and who have a fully fenced yard to play in. He would enjoy time both inside and out. He would do well in a family with another non-alpha dog as well. He's not a fan of cats. Ben's adoption fee: $100 visit www.poundpullersoflebanonmo.org to fill out an adoption application. Neutered, micro chipped, dewormed, flea treatment, on heart worm preventative,rabies, DHPP, and booster.
