The only family that Benji, a 20 lbs cavalier king charles Japanese chin mix, ever knew turned him into the city kill shelter after 9 years of companionship. That did not mean anything to them, though. Everything the family told the shelter when they dumped him there has proven to be false. Benji is the antithesis to reserved and solitary. This boy loves to follow his foster mom, dogs, and cat (his favorite) everywhere. He LOVES companionship and affection. The prospect of a pet and brushing enlivens him. His antics are endless. This boy will do just about anything for a ball, literally. Also, he loves to hide and sleep under beds, tables, you name it. It’s always a fun mystery to think about where he will snooze next!

This handsome man is house broken and will let you know when its time to do his business. Also, he is blind in one eye and sudden movements can startle him. Thus, we recommend a home with older more considerate children or adult only. Ideally, Benji needs a patient and quiet home due to his turbulent former life. He is a really sweet dog and likes other calm dogs. He is absolutely enamored with the cat!
