Ben is a special little dog who needs a very patient human who will give him the time he requires to learn to trust. He is a loving little guy once he gives his heart away. His early months in an overcrowded hoarder situation where he did not get the normal attention needed to learn to have faith in humans makes him very wary. Given time, however, he will give his devotion to the right human and offer years of joy.
Adoption includes vet check, neuter, vaccinations, and microchip. Current on flea preventative and heartworm preventative.
*Before applying for a puppy under 6 months old, please note that we are looking for homes where someone is home frequently, or for those applicants who work 8 hr work days, we ask that you have made arrangements for someone to come home at least once during the day to allow the dog to go out for a potty break. Puppies should remain socialized to other dogs in their formative stages, so homes that can provide exposure to fully vaccinated and healthy well-behaved adult dogs is strongly preferred.
*Local adoptions (New Orleans and surrounding parishes) preferred. We do NOT ship animals
