Benji is so sweet! He enjoys being petted and sometimes I carry him around. He has the coolest coat but it’s going to be a tough coat to keep up on! It’s as if he has three types of fur: the top fur is like a wire coat and is mostly of a darker color. This wire coat gives him that scruffy look. We almost called him Scruffy! Under that coat is a thick soft tuft like coat, like the under coat of an aussie. Then he has yet what feels like another type of coat, soft but thin. Yup, this boy will need to be brushed, but look how darling he is?!
Benji has done well with all the others dogs and actually enjoys playing with other dogs.
He has been a bit so-so with the cat. I think if a cat was dog savvy and didn’t run away but stood it’s ground Benji would be fine, but being a terrier, I think if the cat ran then the game of chase would be on!
Benji is great in his crate. He is pretty much a quiet boy but will bark at strange noises and people.
Benji has done well on a leash. He would do best with a fence or a dedicated leash walker.
I think he will be fine but I would say older children, the ones over 6 years would be best to live with full time. In cases where there are children, a physical fenced in yard is a must.
New owners will want to participate in a doggy obedience training class of their choice for this will help Benji be the best dog possible.
Just another super nice dog brought to you by PetsConnect!
