Sweet Benji had a rough start in life but that's all changed now. This sweetheart loves people and other dogs. Benji is housetrained. Benji is very relaxed and easy going. He loves to be petted and snuggles right up to your side. Benji does fine on walks and car rides. He enjoys food and treats.
He's on a high end dog food mixed with a little omega oil. Benji would do great in most home settings. CHR rescued Benji from the shelter. He was taken away from his owners and considered a neglect case. The only real issue Benji has is he doesn't like being groomed.
We found that having him sedated with medications at the time of his grooming helps. We have a special groomer located in Springfield, VA who is experienced in grooming dogs who hate being groomed. Keeping Benji in a shorter cut is ideal to keep things simple and easy going. The cost to groom him every 3 months is only $60!
