This stunning boy is 5year old Benji. Benji is a full breed white long haired GSD, neutered and weighing in around 45kg. He is a big boy.
Benji is restarting his vaccinations
Due to a change of work patterns he is being left for upwards of 10 hours a day, 5 days a week and this is having a negative effect on both the dog and his owners. While left alone he will bark, but he is never destructive or dirty in the house.
When our volunteer first entered the home Benji was very vocal and protective of the family, taking a few minutes to calm down enough to actually greet the volunteer fully. Once he had though, he quickly became his best friend, kisses and even tummy rubs followed pretty quickly.
He has been around children since he was a puppy, (child now aged 6), and lives with a cat. All of these are part of Benji’s pack.
When walked he walks mostly on a loose lead, unless he gets a strong sniff or something distracts him. He is not especially dog reactive but will bark back if another dog barks at him first.
This is a sad case of a really loved dog whose family circumstances have changed and they just want the best for the dog. He is currently in his own home in North Hampshire.
