Ben is a handsome 7 year old male black lab mix. He knows all basic commands: sit, stay, lay, come, paw, and would love to learn more. Ben has the perfect energy level - whatever you feel like, he feels like. So if you want to go on a 5 mile hike, he'll be right there beside you or if you are in bed sick, he'll sleep beside the bed until you're all better. The first 5 years of his life were rough, the vet confirmed he was abused and neglected. This has resulted in him becoming very attached to good people in his life. The attachment causes him to struggle with separation anxiety. There are prescriptions that can help ease his anxiety. Due also to the abuse, he acts aggressive towards men when he does not know them, however a proper introduction assured him that he won't be hurt again and therefore he'll start loving the men around him just as much as the women. The shelters and rescues won't accept Ben... you're his last chance at living out the rest of his life in peace. Please help.
