Benny

Quick Facts: Breed: Hound mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 5 years Size: 50 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Some cats! Kids? Yes! 13+ Hello! My name is Benny! I’m an easygoing hound dog who loves to bask in the sunshine! History I was found wandering the woods of Kentucky, landed in a rough shelter there but 3 years ago was transported to NY and adopted by my current wonderful, loving family. I’m a very calm, old-soul kind of pup in general, but my early life left with me some anxiety/sensitivities and I’m not a good fit to live with little kids. I’m so sweet and loving, and it breaks my parents hearts to have to find me a new home, but with a little toddler in the house and another on the way, we all know I’ll be happier and safer in a home without little kids that I…

When she went to jail, the police put me in a shelter, but then I went back to her when she got out. During this period, my current owner/dad did everything he…

She was discovered when a painter heard the puppies crying and called rescuers with Cruzan Satos Rescue. They coaxed her out by gathering up the puppies and waiting for them to cry for her.
