Meet little Benjamin. He is about 10 yrs old and weighs around 6.5 pounds. He came from a local kill shelter where he ended up as a stray and no one ever came to claim him. He loves playing with toys and is crate trained. He can be slow to warm up to new people, but can be a lovable little guy once you earn his trust. He is currently living in a foster home where he gets along with most of the other dogs. He can be possessive over his food and his people, though, so he would probably do best with someone experienced in managing those types of behaviors. He also can be territorial and does exhibit marking behavior around the other dogs so he normally wears a belly band in the home. He will be a project, but so worth it when he climbs up in your lap and nuzzles your neck or rolls over for belly rubs. He has had a rough start in life and really deserves a loving home that will teach him all the joys of being a cherished pet. We will only place him in an experienced home that understands he is going to need proper management. Benji's adoption fee of $150 helps cover the cost of his veterinary care. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. Adopters must live 1.5-2 hours driving distance from Romeoville, IL.
