About Me:  More informaton about me coming soon!

Behavior Notes: Benson is a puppy who is showing behaviors that are normal. He is a mouthy puppy. Benson is having problems with house training, so needs a home who can be patient, consistent and persistent with him so that he learns what he needs to do in a positive way. He gets along great with kids of all ages. Benson is a puppy and gets very excited very quickly, and can get rough as he can't control himself. So sometimes he needs time outs to calm down. Benson is showing fears to Brooms and Floor Lamps. To help with these fears, desensitizing him around these items will teach him they are not scary, but feeding him treats and praising him when he's not barking. Food helps make things positive and safe for dogs, in training, as food is always when good stuff happens. It helps change their emotional state towards an item.

Medical Notes:  Most males cringe when we talk about what was wrong with Benson when he first came into care - a prolapsed penis.  While what should have been on the inside was infected and hanging on the outside, Benson was incredibly happy.  Because Benson needed some help keeping things in place, a pursestring suture was put in place to hold his penis in while it healed.  Everything is now working as it should and we do not anticipate any future issues relating to this for Benson.  If that wasn't enough, while he was in care we noticed a perfectly circular lump on his hip that appears to be an embedded pellet.  Because it causes Benson no concern, it was recommended to leave it be.  Benson is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is neutered and microchipped.
