This handsome boy is Benji, a cross breed puppy of currently 6 months of age. He has been with us in Spain since he was tiny and is now ready to find his forever home. He was born to his mother Clara, who was collected as a heavily pregnant stray, and we luckily managed to get her and her babies away from the pound and into the safety of the boarding kennel. The puppies have grown up here, and at the moment they know nothing other than life in a kennel and run, with the company of their litter mates and their mum. For this reason, they will need patient and understanding homes, who appreciate that everything will be new for them. The puppies haven’t yet been shown what life in a home looks like, how to walk on a lead and go exploring, or how to cope with new situations. They will need guidance and training around new people, other dogs, on walks and at home, as they will be experiencing all of this for the very first time.
Benji and his siblings didn’t have the typical start at life which puppies should have and deserve, but that didn’t marked them in anyway. They aren’t traumatized puppy and have the typical character of any other puppy. Benji is a lovely natured boy from what we see in the kennel environment. He is happy, bouncy and social and he loves spending time with dogs and people alike. We feel with the support of a loving family he will grow into the best companion anyone could ask for.
Benji's mother is a medium sized dog and his father is unknown. From his current weight we assume he will grow to a medium size adult dog of 20-25kg, but we cannot guarantee this, so in the “worst” case his new home should also be prepared for a larger dog in the case he grows more than expected.
For Benji we are looking for an active family or person, who is committed with the decision of adopting a puppy and with everything that this implies. A puppy needs to be completely educated and socialized, that is why we only consider a dog experienced home (NOT first dog owners) who knows how to manage the education, training and socialization of a puppy and also has the time and patience for this.
We are looking for an adult only home or a home without young children (14+), as we want dogs who require more time like himself to be the priority. Benji would enjoy having a further dog companion at home from who he would be able to learn. Nevertheless, this is not a requirement, if he gets enough dog interaction and time to play with other dogs on his walks or outdoor activities.
Benji is currently in Northern Spain, but cannot wait to travel and discover his new home in Wales or England (NOT Scotland) as soon as the right family or person comes forward.
Benji is a gorgeous puppy who has had bad luck in his short life. We feel it’s time he finally gets the warmth and happiness of life in a home. If you’d like to offer him this opportunity, and feel you can commit to the next 10-15 years of his care, please get in touch. We would ask that you send some information about your home life, routine, experience with dogs and why you feel Benji is right for you, and we in return will happily explain our adoption process.
