Meet Benny

Benny is supposedly a scottie/cairn/boston terrier mix, but in person, that's anybody's guess. Whatever he is, he's sure pleasant to look at. He's silver brindle (that silver isn't from age) and about 28 pounds. He came from a shelter in NY where he had been sent when his owner of 7 years could no longer care for him. Sadly, he was placed subsequently in homes a few times that ended up being the wrong ones and he was returned after only a day in each. They didn't even give him a chance. Thankfully the shelter did care and contacted us - they thought we could do better for him. Benny has been a breeze in his foster home - he's friendly, happy, clean, gets along with the other dogs and people, keeps himself busy and hasn't been any problem at all. All he needs is a home with a lot of love, someone who is around, no young children to ride on his back and no cats to chase. Pretty easy!? He is healthy and has a medium activity level. He'd make a great companion for someone who wasn't breed specific, just looking for a willing friend, an older person looking for someone to walk and garden with, or even someone who likes to walk or hike or go places.
He's neutered, just had a dental, all vaccinations done, HW negative. No medical problems and not on any medications.
Benny is located in foster in lower NY and just waiting for his forever home. This guy could sure use a break - none of this was his fault and he could have lost his life over it.
