Benson is a lovely young boy that came into us in a poor way. He is making great progress and his skin is looking lots better already, but he is still on rest following surgery on his broken leg. He is looking for a home with older children and no other pets so that he can recover with plenty of home comforts and love.

Benson’s new owners will need to be around for most of the day to help him settle into a new routine, and to keep a close eye on him whilst he heals. He is an affectionate boy that will lean in and nudge you for more fuss. Ideally, his adopters would have previous experience of the breed as he is likely to be a cheeky character when recovered!

During the time we’ve had Benson, he has shown himself to be a lovely character. He has met other dogs politely, but due to his restricted exercise, he has shown frustrated behaviours when not able to greet or play. His new family should be prepared to manage this when he is allowed to go on longer walks, as he is likely to need extra input with lead walking and dog socialisation when possible.
