Hey everyone! My name is Benji.
Back in December, I was found wandering the streets, all alone in the 5th Ward in Houston, TX. Someone picked me up and brought me to the shelter. I was lucky to get out, and a foster in Texas came to bust me out so I could hang out at her house until I could come to Minnesota! I was very thankful. So a little about me.. I am a very sweet and smart boy. I quickly learned how to sit and was potty trained within just a FEW DAYS! My name might as well be Einstein. I am very food motivated, which helps with my training! When I say food motivated.. I mean it! I get VERY excited when it comes time to eat, but I'm learning that I must calm down and sit before I get my food. I can be vocal at times, so I would do best in a house.. no apartments or townhomes for me please.. unless you want neighbors that give you glares when they see you ;) I am learning to walk on leash as well and doing so good. I am super playful but not rough. I cry when I want to play with the other foster pups in the home! I haven't met a cat yet, but I'm sure with a proper introduction I would do just fine! I am learning to not jump either. I promise with some training, I will get everything down pat soon enough! I also love and crave attention. Pets? Belly rubs? Kisses? I will take them all! I would make a great addition to any home! Is that with you?! I sure hope so!
