Homing Requirements: Benny has brilliant dog skills and ideally needs to live with another dog(s). Benny is collar sensitive, so not to live with children and under supervision with visitors: Benny's key is he approaches you. Benny can be an opportunist with food … a typical Lurcher! Benny is an off lead dog with awareness i.e. not around livestock. Not for cats or small furries. Needs a therapeutic environment where he is given space and respected.

His Story: Benny was found stray in Feb 2010 and shared his kennel with other dogs. He became collar sensitive though always accepted slip-leads. He has largely grown out of this but still needs a sensitive approach where he initiates advances. Benny is brilliant with dogs and has so much love on offer. Neutered and chipped. Benny is foster in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

Advert: Benny is extremely loving and fine with confident, caring owners. Benny is great with other dogs; sensitive to other dog’s needs. He adores toys and will entertain himself and you for hours! Benny is keen and alert when on lead but listens. Benny has great recall yet is ever on 'squirrel alert' but returns and is distractible. Benny so enjoys agility courses.

Benny is a 5 year old Whippet Lurcher: Keen beady eyes, focused either into loving you or outside on trees and the horizon, but his heart is still with his walker. Very relaxed in his home and settles to watch and muse on the broad spectrum that life offers. He has a speaking voice which he uses to relate his take on life, which is very amusing. Benny is enthralled with life and activity having spent nearly all his life in kennels! If Benny had been female we would have called him JOY but he is simply Benny Boy!

Please visit Benny’s thread on our forum: http://rescueremediesdogrescue.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=107 to find out if he is still available and for fuller details.

An update from Benny's fosterer:

"I think it is so important that Benny is walked by as many different people as possible so he learns that we are all friendly....but there is no doubt that his favorite walker is Kevin....Benny gets so excited when he sees Kevin.

Benny joins us regularly in the front sitting room at home. He tends to sit by himself, but he is so much more confident and will join Jackson and me on the settee from time to time.

It is still necessary to "read" Benny periodically, but he continues to make progress and always has a great time chasing his ball and "killing" his "tuggy" thing".
