Benni....The Hairy Beast

Just look at him!!

Benni was found wandering a pretty remote area of southern Alberta. He tried warming up at a farm, but his playfullness with the cows almost got him shot! A neighbor down the road took him in and in a few days brought him into PDCR.

He is probably a cross between and Shih Tzu and a Pomeranian. He is about 15 pounds, has a cute underbite and deep brown eyes, his coat is very, very thick and fluffy underneath and coarse and straight on top. Benni does shed, but with regular grooming would be very easy to maintain.

Benni is very playful and always on the go with his foster sisters. He loves to rip around the house in a game of tag in the morning, lay out in the sun in the afternoon, and then settles down for cuddles on the couch in the evenings. Benni is really good with kids of all ages, and does really well with female dogs. His brain doesn't know he is neutered yet, so he still thinks the babes are all his and he needs to protect them!
He is adorable and very outgoing. He is very cute too. I had him for an afternoon and took a ton of pictures, but you can see only two pictures turned out, the rest were a total blur. The two that worked, you can see, are almost the same. But, they show off his best sides, the right, and the left!
