Interstate adoption (ACT, NSW)
Has received heartworm preventative
Bennet is a friendly playful staffy boy. He is social with other young dogs and well on lead. He is looking for an active family who will train him and keep him stimulated. Bennet has just graduated from Manners Class from Howling Success Dog Training. He knows sit, down, stay, touch and look. He has also had training on recall, loose lead walking and leave it. Bennet has been our mascot dog at events and even copes with busy dog friendly city pubs.
Our trainer says: "Bennet is a lovely friendly dog but is strong and can get excited/over aroused when interacting with kids. He is generally gentle with kids but will jump up and lick faces. He is best with 10+yo kids"
Walkers say: “Gorgeous little man. Very loving and gentle but excitable in a pully way. Loved treats, very trainable”, “Bennett is a good boy! Good with kids (9 & 12yr olds). Some jumping, pulling on lead – was so excited to be out. A little overenthusiastic at times but lovely boy”, “Loves sniffing in bushes and responds to commands. Not reactive to other dogs”.
He has a short coat and weighs 25.7kg
Good with Kids: Shown to be good with kids in the controlled environment of the Shelter.
Garden: Needs a home that has more space as well as a garden for exercise and regular walks outside.
Suit Part Time Worker: Copes alone for short periods, with training possibly longer but presently does need someone home part of the time.
DoggieRescue is a charitable organisation and as such we rely very much on volunteers to manage our adoptions. We answer initial adoption enquiries by email or phone and then arrange an appointment for you to meet some of our rescue dogs.
At DoggieRescue we believe our dogs deserve to find that special someone who will love them and look after them forever. We know that there are homes out there that are willing to accommodate one more little member of the family and dedicate time to their well being.
