Meet Bennett

Bennett is a wonderful 8 year old boy who has had a rough life and knew very little of the world around him; until recently. In September he was rescued by Speak and he now knows people are kind, he always gets his meals and things are good.

Because Bennett is still learning the world around him, he is hesitant with new people but he warms up nicely. He is deaf (but hears some sounds) and possibly vision impaired in his right eye but he doesn’t let anything stop him. He is good on a leash once that trust is there. He knows some touch and hand signals for “come”, and sit and no. He loves getting pets – all over especially under his chin and a nice massage on his sides is lovely when he’s sleepy. He is not food aggressive but enjoys a good meal. He would ideally do best in a home as the only dog, or with another very mellow non dominant dog; as he will make a ‘mean face’ and sometimes try to snap. This is not him being aggressive, just simply saying “I don’t see so well, and this is my space… please move”. Bennett is a furry shadow and enjoys being with his people…. And little kids are not his cup of tea, as he gets pretty darn frightened of all that movement from tiny people.

Bennett would make a lovely companion for an older couple who’s kids are out of the house, or for someone in a quieter household. He enjoys long naps during the day, but isn’t too fond of being left alone a lot – as he will bark or cry. He does not need a crate being the lounge lizard he is… he is fine with his over sized memory foam bed that is so comfy. He is potty trained and will do his business on command as soon as he’s outside.

Bennett is a truly wonderful, amazing, and handsome man who is looking for a place he can relax, unwind and enjoy the little things in life which he so deserves.
