About Benji

Lab / Pit Bull
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

This is Benji! This big teddy bear of a dog just wants to give and receive love! He was found on the side of the road searching for food by a gentleman that later brought him into our shelter. He was terrified at first, but soon warmed up to everyone. He loves everyone he meets and has such a sweet temperament! Benji would make an excellent family dog, and he would love you unconditionally forever!
