Benji is a 5 year old male Bichon Frise cross Jack Russell Terrier. Benji has come into our care due to finding living in a busy family environment very stressful and his owners feeling that they were not experienced enough to deal with his behavior. He has bitten on 2 occasions; the first being when somebody startled him by leaning over him to kiss him whilst he was sleeping and the second when he was picked up whilst barking at work men outside the home. Unfortunately on that occasion he was incredibly wound up and simply redirected the behavior back at the shock of being picked up. Both instances were preventable but in the interest of full disclosure we are obviously going to be entirely honest about his history.
Benji is a very happy and easy going dog, he is initially a little bit fearful at first meets but very friendly otherwise. He loves going for walks and playing with toys and has a good degree of basic obedience. He walks well on the lead, has an incredible recall and will wait by the road and only cross when instructed to do so. He gets on really great with dogs and enjoys playing with them, he travels well in the car and enjoys going to new places.
Inside the home he is calm and well behaved. He will climb up onto tables to get food if the chairs are not pushed in but we think that’s the cheeky Jack Russell Terrier side. He will also chew up post if given the chance; he’s obviously very considerate of stopping you from stressing over your phone bill. He sleeps quietly downstairs with no issues, does not require a crate and has no separation problems.
Benji is an affectionate little chap who will really thrive in the right home. He is a very simple and uncomplicated lad that has shown no concerning behaviour whilst under our care. He needs a quieter home with structure, routine and with no children so that he has full capability to succeed. He shows fantastic, positive traits of both his breeds with huge potential to train and learn new things. He is an adorable, willing and vibrant dog who will slot straight into any dog loving family.
Benji is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and will be subject to a home check and adoption donation.
