Benson lived with his owner for 6 years but his circumstances and small flat with no garden meant he was no longer able to meet Bensons welfare needs. He made the heartbreaking decision to ask the RSPCA to find Benson a new home.
Benson is a really friendly chap who loves fuss and attention. He has some basic training and enjoys learning especially for a tasty treat. Benson will walk nicely on the lead but can pull at times so his new family will need to be used to larger breed dogs who can be strong. Off the lead Benson loves to run and play and enjoys running around shaking a football. His recall is reasonable if he is not distracted. Benson can jump up and be playful so he is best homed with children of older teens 16yr+ who are used to lively dogs.
In his previous home Benson was attacked while on the lead by other dogs. This has made him unsure of some other dogs. At Millbrook he has met many dogs and has played off lead with some. His new owners will need to keep him socialised with friendly, calm dogs when out on walks and move him away from situations where he is not comfortable. Benson is best kept on the lead in public with off lead play in his own enclosed private garden. He is also best as the only dog in his new home as he likes the attention. He is best in home without visiting dogs.
In his previous home Benson did have house training accidents at night so his new family will need to be prepared to help train him. He was being left during the day for 4-6 hours, however he did not like being left. He will need someone based at home most of the day, with time he is left increased slowly as he settles in his new environment. Benson is not used to car travel but his owner said he seems to like cars. Benson is a lovely boy who needs to find a place in someones heart and complete the missing piece to their family puzzle.
