Yorkie Mix Age: Adult
|Health:|| Neutered, Vaccinations Current | Updated bio 2/2/2016 Benji is an amazing 6.5-year-old, 11 pound yorkie mix, He is being fostered in Mobile, AL This super sweet big hunk of a snuggle muffin is really looking for a forever home. Now that his days of being on the streets are over he is learning to love the luxury of a real home life. Benji still loves to run around in the backyard to make sure there are no squirrels on the ground! During his outside time his foster mom has always accompanied him. He may run around but always makes sure he can see her. When she says, 'let's go inside,' Benji RUNS to follow her. He doesn't want to be alone without her. He loves his ... (Read More)people so much. Benji will let you know when he has to go potty. He still wears a bellyband in the house at times in case he has an accident. Foster mom puts one on him when she leaves as a precautionary measure. Benji walks great on the leash and is fine in the car. He gets along with other dogs and he likes older kids too. Benji is a total snuggle bug. He loves attention but does not demand it. He will quietly follow you into a room and sit as close as possible until you pick him up. If you are sitting on a sofa he wants to be touching you. At night he prefers to sleep on the bed but will not crowd your space (he likes to sleep at the foot of the bed). Though Benji only has one eye (a result of his life before United Yorkie Rescue) he gets around just fine. He may have a little trouble seeing you from the right side, but it is not a problem. This wonderful boy has been waiting patiently for his forever home. He will be the best buddy you ever had and the love you give him will be returned back to you every day. If beautiful Benji sounds like the perfect addition to your family please fill out an application. You will not be sorry. He will give you unending loyalty and love! Updated bio 1-8-16 Benji is the cutest guy. He is 6.5 years old and weighs a perfect 11 pounds. He is being fostered in Mobile, AL. Being the cool dog that he is, Benji wants to speak for himself. Wassup? It's me BENJI-- former Street Dog and now loving the easy life with Foster Mom. Life on the street was tough for this here dude. As you can see I lost an eye and had a few gross bug problems. United Yorkie Rescue fixed me all up, and man look at me now!! Ain't I a Handsome Hunk?? People tell me I got that rascal-pirate look goin'... just adds to my cool swagger...It's all good. As cushy as life is now, it will be OUTSTANDING when I get one of those Furever Homes. You've got a good-looking, comfy lap, right? Give good belly-rubs? Don't mind me sleeping at your feet in your bed with you? (Promise I will respect your space!)... That's what I'm talking about! I also need a fenced backyard to let me have what I love most - OUTSIDE time! Nothing like singing the song of my people with the other boys in the Hood. I get restless if I have to spend my whole day inside - even if it is in luxury. A fellow's got to move, and if I ain't sleepin, I'm movin! There are several of us dogs here, and we all get along nicely. Most of them follow Foster Mom around all day, but I am more of an independent sort of guy...Foster Mom appreciates that about me. I have been trying to learn what Foster Mom calls 'house manners.' It's not so easy to give up my street ways, but Foster Mom says I am doing sooo much better. On account of this one-eye thing I got going on, if you have some bigger kids, that's cool. They just need to be old enough to watch out for me to avoid collisions and stuff like me getting stepped on. It's because I don't always see what's coming so you can't always count on me getting out of the way. So what do you think? You know you want me! I'll make you so happy! Just contact those nice United Yorkie Rescue people at Unitedyorkierescue.org and tell 'em you want BENJI, the cutest and the best boy in the neighborhood. You know I'm the pal you've always wanted. I'm wishing and hoping and waiting to see your adoption application. So come on, do it! Benji update 12/15/15 -- Benji is a sweet, adorable, 6-7 year oldfellow. He weighs 12 pounds. Benji is being fostered in Mobile, AL Benji was once a sad, depressed, and lonely street dog until United Yorkie Rescue stepped up for him. No one else had to, since like most of the little dogs UYR rescues, Benji had a variety of medical issues including tick sickness, kennel cough, a gaping wound where his right eye was should have been--but wasn't, and badly needed dental work. UYR got him a loving, caring foster home, and fixed him right up! Benji is now a healthy, happy, always-moving and grooving 6-7year old, 12 lb., one-eyed, super cool cutie! But I will let HIM tell you just how cool he is. Hello, it's me Benji...Man, this place is awesome! I get goodeats, fur-buddies to hang with, and a foster mom who cuddles with me - when I slow down for cuddles. My former street life had me always on the go, and it's (Less) Adoption Fee: YES Animal Location:
