Benji Must Have:
— Someone home most of the time
— Another active, playful small dog around my age
— A pup who can show me the ropes
— Adults or a family with older kids as I’m so small
— Have had dogs as an adult
— Recent/current dog experience a plus
— Rescue dog experience
My name is Blissful Benji and I’m a cuddly, cute, comical and clever little guy who is easy to fall in love with. My foster Mom and Dad say I’m almost perfect. I’m about a year old, weigh only 7.4 pounds and my BFK Aunties think I’m a ‘Morkie’ (a Maltese/Yorkie mix.)
I’m very, very puppy-like. That means I’m curious, lovable and playful! Mom says I do what she calls my ‘morning shenanigans.’ If you wonder what that looks like well, I’m known to grab a toy and toss it around the house followed by doing the Zoomies. There is no doubt that I’m as cute as I can be and every bit an energetic pup.
Dad says I’m quite adventurous and consistently demonstrate my puppy spirit. He says if I’m quiet, you’d better see what I’m up to! Did I mention that I love shoes and socks! I like to ‘find’ them and bring them to my play area.
I’m learning about walks (I’m working up to longer walks to build my confidence) and rides in the car (I’m a great co-pilot). I am also learning commands (I already know ‘sit’, ‘come’ and my name), and am almost housebroken. I like other dogs but my doggy foster brothers are older so they are not captivated with my puppy energy. I’m thinking another pup closer in age and size might be a good fit for me.
Most of all I’m playful (did I mention that?), learning the joy of toys, am a total cuddlebug and lap dog. Did I mention that I’m a pup who loves to play, rarely barks and likes to have people give me pets and belly rubs? That’s the kind of pup I am!
My Ideal Home:
* Someone home most of the time
* Another active, playful small dog around my age
* A pup who can show me the ropes
* Adults or a family with older kids as I’m so small
* Have had dogs as an adult
* Recent/current dog experience a plus
After a day of playing, exploring, walking and learning new things, I settle down in the Big People’s Bed and sleep quietly all through the night. I’m just that good! So if I sound like your kind of pup, I’m applying for the job. I hope we can meet and I’ll show you how special I am!
Cuddles and wags,
Buoyant, Bright and Brimming (with love) Benji
