Meet Benji

Ever seen the 1974 movie Benji? Just like the lovable canine protagonist of that movie, SCCR’s Benji will sweep you off your feet with his goofy, affectionate character.

At 4 years old, Benji knows his way around the home. He is fully housebroken and can be trusted outside the crate alone. This Lab mix also sleeps through the night in his dog bed without a problem. Benji does show some nervousness in crowded places, so a home in a quiet neighborhood would be ideal for this sweet pooch.

Slow introductions are important for Benji, as he can get scared in the case of sudden meetings with new people or dogs. With a proper introduction, Benji loves playing with other dogs and will become a shadow for the people he loves. Time spent cuddling on the couch and chasing tennis balls are some of Benji’s favorite pastimes. This 40 pound boy has also shown himself to be gentle with children and will happily receive any scratches or belly rubs. He's good with cats, too!

So whether you are looking for the handsome hero, the goofy sidekick, or the sweet companion, Benji has got you covered. Can you welcome this movie-star boy home?
