Meet our silly Bendo!
Bendo is a tall handsome boy filled with boundless, goofy energy, sure to make you smile!
He is an absolute delight with his people and is looking for his paw-fect adventure partner that will take him running, swimming, or hiking. He is a happy dog and will greet you with a prance and a big smile!
Bendo’s lineage tracks back to a Australian Cattle dog and a German Shepherd. So to say he is a smart dog is definitely a understatement!
This gorgeous guy will need plenty of exercise and mental stimulation daily to keep Bendo strong and healthy both physically and mentally. Bendo has worked with a trainer in the past, and has a solid base for basic obedience, and would love to continue to work on this in his new home!
Bendo will require a confident leader who will ensure Bendo is set up for success in his new life. Bonus if you are breed experienced or have put a lot of research into these breeds!
Bendo has a big heart, with lots of love – he also has a big personality with little willingness to share the spotlight.. especially with other dogs. Because of this, Bendo will need to go to a home where he can be the center of attention!
Bendo has been diagnosed with mild hip dysplasia and so will need an adopter who is willing to continue giving him vet recommended supplements and possibly hydrotherapy.
If you have great experience with strong minded dogs, Bendo is the dog for you! For your next great adventure follow the steps below.
