This dog is located in Tennessee. Adoption Donation $75 in TN, $125 plus transportation fee for out of state adoptions.
Big-hearted Benji is a sweet soul who will really tug at your heart strings. We are guessing at this sociable 8 year old, 23 pound senior's breed mix as being Westie / Poodle, but what ever his heritage may be, he's completely adorable. Thanks to a new hairdo and some much needed vet care, Benji has made a fresh start from his past life of neglect. Now all he needs is a quiet household to spend his golden years - he gets along with other dogs and cats and seems to like children. Benji does have a few special needs due to his age; he is hearing impaired but not fully deaf, he has arthritis in his rear legs and may need medication for that down the road, and he is recovering from a flea allergy. If you are looking to make a difference in a special dog's life, please take another look at Benji. He's waiting to hear from you!

Prior to adoption, all canines and felines are spayed or neutered, have received their age appropriate vaccinations, have been de-wormed for common parasites, and have received treatment for prevention of fleas and ticks. All canines over the age of 6 months have been tested for heartworm. All canines are put on heartworm prevention as soon as possible - this means dogs as soon as they are tested negative. Puppies are put on prevention immediately. All felines, regardless of age, have been tested for feline leukemia and FIV. Each animal receives a health check by a licensed veterinarian prior to adoption. Anything else found will be treated by our organization prior to adoption.
