Meet BEN

Ben is a 6-7 year old, purebred German Shepherd Dog who weighs around 100 pounds and is sable coated. Ben is your typical Shepherd: smart, loving, loyal, playful, and a guardian. He is living in a foster home with a single man and no other pets; however, Ben seems to be partial to women since his first owner was a young woman. Ben has no interest in meeting or playing with other dogs; he has always been the only dog in a home and he likes it that way. Ben loves playing with any type of ball and will amuse himself with the right toy.

Ben knows some commands and listens well. He will sneak into bed if he can - thinking he's a "little" guy. He is completely housebroken and will let you know when he needs to go out. Ben enjoys going for walks and spending time in the yard playing fetch.

Everyone who meets Ben loves him. He will make a wonderful addition to the right home. He has no experience with children, therefore, we are only placing Ben into households with only adults or adults and teens. Ben was surrendered by his female owner whose military career didn't allow her to keep him any longer.

Several months ago this rescue provided Ben with surgery to remove several cysts and a dermal mass. Ben was diagnosed with skin allergies causing those cysts so he is now on medication which he'll need to remain on year round. Along with his allergy medication, the vet has put him on a special diet. These changes have really improved Ben's skin and he's not suffering like he was prior to rescue! The Adoption Counselor can go into more detail about this when she speaks with you.

This dog has been examined by several licensed veterinarians, provided annual vaccinations and tests, plus been neutered and microchipped.
