Benji – 7-8 year old male Jack Russell Terrier

Benji is a sweet natured boy who is looking for his forever home through no fault of his own. He has lots of love to give and will make a fantastic companion. Benji is great in the house and is very happy to snuggle on the sofa next to you. He loves attention and will never say no to being made a fuss of. He is not destructive when left alone and is happy to be left for short periods at a time. He is very friendly and will jump up and bark for attention. Benji although great with everyone he meets has had very limited experience with all ages of children therefore we are looking for an adult only home. Benji travels ok, however has had limited experience. The few times he has been in the car he has been in a crate and does settle. Benji will pull when walking on a lead and in a secure area will come back when called, however we recommend further training with his recall on a long line before letting him off lead.

Little Benji is great with other dogs and is happy to run around and play with them. We are happy to place Benji in a home where there is another friendly dog, however we will not re-home him where there are resident cats. Benji is a great all rounder and will make a wonderful companion. Despite being 7 and a half years old he is still very active and enjoys going out for nice walks. Benji loves to chase a ball in the garden so he would love his own secure garden where he can continue his favorite game. Benji is used to a quiet home where he has company for most of the day and ideally this is the type of home that we are looking for. Unfortunately Benji is not suited to living in a flat and is looking for a nice quite home where it is not too busy or noisy, such as a nice quiet country home.

Benji does bark when he hears loud noises however with training and patience this can be managed. Benji was very much loved in his previous home and was allowed to rule the roost so he can be demanding at times. Once he has learnt that he can’t get away with mischief he will make a wonderful companion. Benji is a fantastic little dog with a great personality. If you are looking for a little dog who doesn’t ask for much apart from a nice cozy bed and lots of love then Benji is the one for you!
