About Benny Griffin

Adoption Fee: $200
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Date into Rescue: 07/20/2016 Reason for being in rescue: found as a stray in Atlanta GA Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? Benny needs a calm home, an experienced owner and a structrued environment Weight: est 18 lbs Height: est 10' at the shoulder Adoption Fee: $200 Fence needed? no What kind of home would be best for me? Benny was found as a stray in a bad neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. He must have been very frightened and had a rough life during his time on the streets because Benny can be very jumpy and scares easily at loud noises and fast movement. Because of this, Benny would do best in a quiet and calm environment with no children and with a patient adopter who will allow him room to breathe as he transitions into a new home. He will need time to decompress and get comfortable with his new surroundings and his new owners. What is my personality like? Benny was very frightened when he first came to us here at the farm, but he is now starting to trust our caregivers and he is becoming more comfortable. He now comes up and gently jumps on your leg to ask for some affection. He loves to go outside on walks and is doing well so far with his leash training. He enjoys a good roll around in the grass. Benny lives in a cottage with eighteen other dogs and gets along well all of them. Benny would do well in a calm, quiet home where he can get to know his new family well enough to fully trust them without his buttons being pushed. Benny was adopted and then returned due to biting the owner twice. We have not had any bite incidents with him while he has been back at the farm. Noted from caregiver- Benny is an adorable little guy with a quirky personality. It took a little while to get this guy to warm up to me, and even then, he could take me or leave me. Benny did well with the leash. He did well with Salem the cat and he handled the car like a pro. It seems that in his past life, he wasn't allowed on furniture. He was not comfortable with comfy cushions and made a hasty retreat. Benny is a intelligent guy. He's a quick learner. He quickly learned to respond to ' Benny .' Benny is not an overly affectionate dog, he has his own agenda. He likes to be petted, but I think he'd rather be exploring. Benny also has a habit of 'smiling.' There's no aggression associated with his smile. He doesn't snarl, growl or snap. When I petted him, he 'smiled.' Non aggressive aggression? I like this quirky guy. How I act when I first meet new people: Benny is cautious of new people and places. House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule. My age: est 7/20/2016 Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. To apply, please visit our webpage at and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application. Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
