Meet Benjy the poodle. JAC took in Benjy after learning his owner gave him up after losing her job and moving. His former owner had him since he was 8 weeks old. He is almost 2 years old now and 11 pounds and has the energy of a young pup.
When Benjy entered his JAC foster home, he was in desperate need of a grooming since his fur was very matted and knotted. He has been groomed, received the appropriate vaccinations, and was neutered.
Benjy does fine with other dogs and he just adores people. He is crate-trained and is doing well with housebreaking, since he had some issues after all the upheavals in his young life recently.
He is a happy, loving, energetic young boy who loves to play with squeak toys, run around, and cuddle with people. He will be a wonderful and faithful companion to anyone who wants to give him a forever home. If you are interested in adopting Benjy, please fill out a pre-adoption form . You can submit it online or print and mail to:
