Meet Benji

Hi People,
My name is Benji and, according to my fosters, I’m a sweetheart who is easy to fall in love with. I love to cuddle and I love to be groomed. (My groomer says I’m one of the best she has ever seen!) And I’m a friendly guy who enjoys meeting people and is quite a gentleman.
When my family decided that they no longer had time for me, off I went to this place called a shelter. Well, believe me, that was no place for an active, playful and loving little guy like me. So I said a lot of prayers and the best thing happened. I was rescued! The good vets checked me out and declared me fit. They said I’m almost a perfect 10. I’m about 2 ½ years old and am a solid 20 pounds. My BFK Aunties agree that I’m very, very puppy-like, as well as curious, lovable and playful!

I have a great foster Mom who says I’m quite the helper at home. I like to go on walks and to play in the yard. I also like to wrestle with my doggy foster sister and snuggle with my human sisters. Did I mention that I love to go for rides in the car (Dad says I’m a great co-pilot), am learning commands (I already know ‘sit’ and my name), am almost housebroken, and I like other dogs. (I’m not good with those creatures called cats though.)

Most of all I’m playful (did I mention that?), learning the joy of toys, am appreciative and loving. Mom says I’m also very sensitive. When my human teenage sister came home from school having had a really rough day, I went right to her and let her know that I understood. I cuddled and comforted her and made her feel a lot better! (That’s what she said!)

Mom and Dad said that I’m learning the rules of the house and learning to not be in charge. (I’m pretty smart so I have gotten away with that in the past.) That’s not always in my best interest though – so in my forever home I need people who are experienced dog owners (Mom says “dog savvy”) and able to create and maintain a structure. (Those are Dad’s words). I’m happy to share my home with another furkid — but no young children, please!

I’m happiest when I know what’s expected of me so I can be the most cuddly and lovable little guy you’d ever meet. Did I mention that I’m a pup who loves to play, rarely barks and likes to have people meet and pet me? That’s the kind of friendly guy that I am!

If I sound like your kind of bichon, I’m applying for the job. I hope we can meet and I’ll show you how special I am!

Bichon wags,
Buoyant, Bright and Brimming (with love) Benji
