APPLICATIONS FOR BENJI ARE NOW CLOSED
Breed: Springer Spaniel
Age: 8 years old
Benji is a typically energetic and exuberant 8-year-old springer spaniel, who is looking for a new home through no fault of his own. He’s a very loving boy who would make a fantastic addition to the right household.
He’s looking for a person or family who can tire him out physically as well as mentally, ideally someone with working breed experience, as he’s very work focussed & could potentially enjoy scent work classes & dog sports.
Benji can be left for short periods but prefers his person to be around most of the time, and/or someone to help him gradually become more used to spending time alone.
Benji can live with children, but due to his energy, speed & total lack of spatial awareness, he can easily knock little ones off their feet. He currently has a canine housemate but would be equally happy to have all of the attention for himself. He enjoys socialising with other dogs on walks and is good both on & off lead, though his excitability before walks needs a little management! He has not been cat tested but has shown no excessive prey drive, so he may be able to live with a confident feline with proper introductions.
Benji must go to a home with a very secure garden as he can be a master escape artist, and with people who can manage his puppy-like exuberance and continue working with him on his training.
