BENNY – 21051
Safe - 3-3-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Benny. My animal id is #21051. I am a desexed male chocolate dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 18-Feb-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- homeless.
**A private donor has graciously offered to pay $500 to the New Hope partner that pulls Benny**
Benny is at risk for behavior reasons. Benny has been sociable whilst at the care center, but is obviously not comfortable in this environment. Benny does have a reported bite history, likely related to guarding issues, and for this reason we seeking placement only with a New Hope partner. Medically, Benny is overweight, has a small dermal nodule on his back which should be further investigated, and also has mild tartar.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: I’m truly, madly, deeply in love with every inch of Benny, from his soft, soulful eyes to his wagging tail that spins into helicopter mode the moment he sees I’ve come to take him for a walk. On our way out the door, everyone we pass stops to ask just who this chunky hunk is, and with a gentle approach, Benny’s thrilled to make their acquaintance, too. A discerning dog for a discerning adopter, he’s an enchanting combination of easy walking, sweet lap snuggling, cat friendly manners all wrapped up in a velveteen chocolate package–simply irresistible! His former owner liked how affectionate he is, and told us Benny would often lay his head on their lap. But I got even luckier during our date when he climbed his whole front half onto mine for cuddles and people-watching in the park. Benny’s described as playful and happy to share his toys, but his main hobby was napping. He even slept in bed with his owner every night. Imagine the adorable Instagram possibilities when you welcome this snoozy sweetheart into your life and onto your sofa! Sociable with respectful dogs and relaxed around his feline friends, Benny would fit like a snuggly glove into a quiet, adult only home where he can build his confidence and keep on doing what he does best–love love loving on his family. Fall for Benny at our Manhattan Care Center today and that helicopter tail could soon be whirling its way out the front door and into a perfect forever home…with you!
