Meet Benjamin - Harvey flood victim!
Hi! I'm Benjamin! I've had a pretty wild couple of past weeks where I was down in Texas during the hurricane. Some nice people rescued me, figured out I needed a new home, and brought me here to Colorado.
My foster folks are learning more about me every day, and they say I'm good with dogs and I'm an energetic guy who loves hiking! I didn't pass the cat test, so Summit Dog Rescue is saying No Cats in my forever home, please.
I'm learning about crate-training, as during the Harvey floods I was an outdoor dog who had to crate inside. But hey -- I'm up for learning all kinds of new stuff! In spite of everything that's happened to me recently, I'm a totally happy guy and ready for new adventures!
Here's what Summit Dog Rescue has to say about me:
"Benny's foster mom lost her home in the flood and couldn't foster him anymore, so now he's here in Colorado looking for his forever home. Benny is as handsome and sweet as it gets! He is most likely a Flat Coated Retriever mix but could have some other breeds as well. He is about 18 months old, 47 pounds, neutered, and up to date with all his shots. He was just saved by Summit Dog Rescue partners in Texas so we are helping by posting him since he deserves the most wonderful home.
"Benny is crate-trained and working on learning to live as an indoor pet, along with his other manners. He is as sweet as they come but was not provided with proper training and guidance prior to being rescued. He is smart and wants to please so he wants you to know he is learning quickly. Benny is as sweet as they come, and has interacted well with all humans.
"He loves other dogs and just wants to play! He is very puppy-like in all his actions and is excited to be saved. This young guy has impressed everyone he has met so far - he would make the perfect Colorado mountain dog!
"Since SDR is firmly committed to making sure our adopters work with a force-free trainer upon adoption - we are the perfect rescue for a sweetheart like this who just needs to add a few skills to his training repertoire."
More info will appear here soon, and in the meantime if you want to find out more about me, go to the top toolbar, click Adopt, click Dog Application, then fill it out and send it in. A nice volunteer from Summit Dog Rescue will get back to you as soon as they can.
