BENJI is a 4 year old male podenco, currently at our holding kennels in Cordoba, Southern Spain.

We rescued Benji from a very busy municipal pound in central Spain. He had been collected by the authorities from a breeding hunter with his two equally terrified siblings, and was having a terrible time, sitting and shaking at the back of the pen, only daring to venture out if food was thrown.

He is much more confident since arriving at the shelter but it’s still difficult for him to trust – he still finds it difficult if somebody makes a quick movement or if he hears a loud noise, which is completely understandable given his background.

An escape artist, he jumps and scales very well so his adopter will need to be experienced with this type of dog and put into place proper security measures to keep him safe.

He loves other dogs and finds security in having them nearby so a home with a resident dog or dogs is essential for Benji. Ideally, a home in Spain is sought so that Benji doesn’t have to travel, but we will consider the UK if the right home is found.

Benji is a Podenco and was a working dog – please research the breed-specific needs of the Podenco before applying.

All of our dogs have an international passport (unless born in the UK) and are microchipped. They are fully vaccinated for standard diseases as well as rabies and kennel cough.

All dogs are blood tested for infectious diseases including Leishmaniasis, Dirofilaria, Ehrlichia, Babesia, Anaplasma, Lyme and Brucella canis.

All dogs, unless there are medical or behavioural reasons to not do so, will be sterilised. Benji is neutered. Please note that we will advise medical results and treatments upon successful application.

** Please note that Benji is currently undergoing treatment for heartworm but if you would like to offer him a home, please contact us to discuss when he will be ready **
