Benny is all puppy at 1 year old! Poor Benny came into Animal Control after being found on the streets of Bridgeport with a wound of unknown origin. This made it mandatory that he be in a 6 month quarantine during a crucial time of puppy development. Benny has been fostered with one of our wonderful trainers and made huge progress while there. He has crossed-eyes with some near sighted vision issues that have been examined by our Ophthalmologist, and will always be a part of his ongoing life.
Benny really wants to please! He does best with positive reinforcement and a patient trainer. Because of his inability to have played with other pups during his quarantine period, he is catching up with his socialization. And Benny's physical size and energy do not make him a good candidate for a home with children.
We are looking for a special adopter or fosterer that understands dog behavior and is totally committed to Benny! This will involve continued training and socialization. CT Animal House will provide funding and set him up with one of our approved trainers. This sweet boy deserves a chance at a happy life! Serious and knowledgeable applicants only. Thank You!
