Benji has found an ideal home. More details coming soon.....
ORIGINAL ADVERT: BENJI NEEDS FULL-TIME COMPANY
At only 2-years-old, this dear little Maltese X Papillon X Pomeranian has already lived with two families. Both of his previous caregivers returned to their countries of origin, each time leaving Benji confused and homeless. I now have him in foster care where he is learning recall and other basic commands. Because he was restricted to living on a deck and in a garage, Benji will also be house-trained before he will be available for adoption.
Except with cats, this affectionate little fellow has the loveliest, friendliest nature – he just adores interaction with other dogs and humans alike.
However, with his lively, loving nature and obvious intelligence comes a strong will and a yearning to be constantly near his caregiver. Benji needs a home where he is seldom alone and where his caregiver(s) will enrol him in a series of obedience classes. One-on-one lessons with a dog coach may also be required and, depending on his progress in foster care, on-going professional training may be a condition of his adoption. I am determined that Benji’s next home will be his final home, so applicants must convince me that they will be totally committed to his well-being.
Benji has now been for a health check and is neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and registered. His teeth are fine, he has been treated for fleas and worms and, like many before him, he has enjoyed a complimentary professional groom from Linde at www.lindegroomstyle.vpweb.co.nz See the before and after pictures at the bottom.
In the words of Benji’s fosterer:
If you can offer Benji the company and the security that will last him the rest of his natural lifespan, please contact me. Your gates and fences will need to be at least a metre high, he must be allowed to sleep indoors at night and to have indoor and outdoor access to your living environment. Thank you.
NOTE: Unless it is an emergency situation, please do not adopt an animal if you know you are unable to be with him or her for the length of his or her natural lifespan. Like human family members, animals thrive in stable lifestyles and should not be treated as disposable objects.
