Benny West Highland White Terrier / Westie Mix Beaverton, OR
- Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.
Benny is probably a Westie mix. He's about two years old. Benny was hit by a car and suffered abrasion on his head and legs, but luckily avoided any fractures. This is why his hair was clipped so short. He has a typical terrier personality: sweet and very energetic. Benny gets along great with all other dogs once he knows them, but is a bit defensive when he first meets them, especially on leash. His favorite friend in his foster home is a Pit bull! They run and run in the yard.
He needs to go to a home that has experience with the energy and temperament of terrier breeds and no young kids. Benny can definitely benefit from continued training. Benny is very cute and will be a great addition to the right home.
Adoption Process: We are not first come first served. Indigo Rescue focuses on finding good matches between dogs and families to ensure life long adoptions. We deliver all dogs to their new homes.
All of our dogs are in foster homes. We have adoption events at the Beaverton PetSmart every other Saturday where you can meet many of our dogs at once. Click Here for our Calendar of Events. Or, if you're interested in a particular dog, you can send an e-mail via the e-mail link at the bottom of the page ("Email Indigo Rescue") with answers to the questions below. If the dog seems compatible with your situation we'll set up a time for you to meet the dog.

Have you had pets in the past? What became of them?
What kind of exercise will you provide for the dog? (type/frequency)
