Hello, my name is Benny. I’m an eleven-month old male Lurcher. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owners no longer wanted me. I’m a sensitive soul, I can be shy of new people but it doesn’t take long for me to make friends with people who are calm and gentle. I love going to the park where I enjoy running around at top speed and playing with other dogs. I can live with other dogs providing we’re the right match and I may be able to live with dog confident cats. I can also live with children from 12 years of age and upwards.
I’m now looking for an experienced owner who has plenty of time on their hands to continue my training. As it is not yet known how long I can be left for, I would need someone who is home all day. I will also need to be in a house or flat with direct access to a garden. My new owners will be expected to take me to training classes and provide me with a minimum of one hours of off lead exercise every day.
They will also need to be fully prepared for the hard work and long term commitment involved in owning a dog, you’ll be taking on a fourteen year commitment which must not be taken lightly.
I hope to see you soon.
