Meet handsome Benny ! This sweet and gentle boy came to us as a stray so we do not know a whole lot about his history. Benny has a mind of his own and lives life to the beat of his own drum. Benny’s confidence has been slowly growing during his time with us and would appreciate a slow approach when meeting new people. Benny is still learning his new name and doesn’t seem to know any commands but he sure knows how to show his love for people ! Benny has short legs but he can jump 4ft fences with ease. His future home will need a fully fenced yard with fencing that is at least 6ft in height.
Benny has a condition called cutaneous keratinization. He currently has a large benign cyst on the top of his head and multiple horns on his body. This is not an issue at this time; however, proper research and consulting with your vet regarding his condition will be important as this will be a lifelong condition.
If you would like to give sweet Benny a new start to life, please submit an application online or contact the shelter for more information.
