Rescue Me:  Benny – Labrador Retriever Looking For His Forever Home

21 Jul

BennySPCAwithToyIn our next installment of Rescue Me where we feature pets looking for adoption at the Vancouver SPCA, we introduce you to Benny.  He is a wonderful 7 year old Labrador Retriever with a beautiful flaxen coat.  Benny came to the Vancouver SPCA through a call to the cruelty line as neighbours had noticed he had been tethered on a back deck for weeks.  They believe the guardian eventually returned to check on him and bring food and water. When it was apparent he had been abandoned, Vancouver SPCA officers brought Benny to the Vancouver Shelter.   His friends at the Vancouver SPCA believe he was kept in the yard often, but not all the time as he is alert and very aware of people. Although initially nervous with staff, he has shown to be a smart and playful boy who loves his balls, toys and sticks.   He knows several commands including sit, paw, high-five and sit pretty.  His idea of heaven = belly rubs. Benny has shown to be a sweet boy, but will require a quieter adult only home with people that are savvy and experienced with dog behaviour.    If you can provide a forever home for Benny, or know someone who can, the Vancouver SPCA would love to hear from you. Feel free to contact them by stopping by the Vancouver SPCA Shelter, 1205 East 7th Avenue, or by Telephone: 604.879.7721 or Email: vancouver@spca.bc.ca. As always, we thank you in advance for sharing this information to help Benny find his forever home.
