ADOPTED ON 02-10-23 The rescue job never ends, but every once in a great while we get to write stories of pups that were rescued and never experienced anything other than love. Benny was raised in a home with lots of love and care. His family loved him, however, they have a severely autistic son who yells and screams and hits at things. Benny being just about two years old, did not understand and was scared to death.
The grief and guilt of a home owner deciding to rehome a dog is difficult and sad for the dog and the owner. It is perhaps even more sharply painful than dealing with heartache after a losing a pet to death. Most pets’ deaths are natural and caused by old age or ill health. The feelings of loss, shame, and guilt caused by rehoming a dog is traumatic and everlasting.
Benny’s family tells us that he is well behaved and loves children. He is only two year olds; he is about 7 or 8 pounds and is a red, neutered male toy poodle. His foster mom and tells us that Benny is very sweet, loving and laid back. He is best described as a happy go lucky guy, eager to get on that leash and run, play and he’ll jog with you. He is polite and loving little boy and loves her 10 year old granddaughter.
Benny will keep you entertained and loves to be the center of attention everywhere he goes. He loves to cuddle, so get ready to hang out and be loved! We can understand why a child that has severe autism and hollers out would upsets this little guy he’s just so docile and quiet.
