About Benji

Hi, I'm Benji! I came to the SPCA after being a stray. I am a very loving and loyal dog, and I am searching for my new best friend! I have won the hearts of so many people that have taken the time to get to know me, and the staff say it has been so rewarding to see my progress! I've been at the SPCA for a very long time, and while I am extremely well loved, it sure would be nice to transition to a home of my very own - it's about time!

I am a young guy that needs consistency and routine in my life. A home with a very experienced dog owner is where I would like to go. I LOVE being active and exploring the outdoors. I enjoy runs in the woods (I've been told I am the most excellent running partner), and sticks are my absolute favourite! After a bit out outdoor time, I'm content to curl up on the couch with a bully stick to gnaw on while we watch the hockey game, and catch some zz's. While I can be wary of strange humans, I become fast friends with every dog I meet! A home with another dog would be amazing, as a playmate will make both our lives much better!

I am still learning to trust new people, so proper meet and greets are important for me to feel safe, but once I bond with you, I am an absolute delight, and meeting new people is a breeze these days! I have learned that meeting new people means lots of treats, so I build trust much easier now - hot dogs tend to get the job done! Tiny humans aren't for me, now or in the future (including visiting children). If new people respect my space until I feel comfortable, I will let them into my trusted circle and they will see all the love I have to give!

It is well worth the time to get to know me, and you will be rewarded with a lifelong loving best friend and the most loyal sidekick you could ask for!

***The Bow Valley SPCA will cover the cost of training classes with a pre-approved, positive-reinforcement based professional dog trainer to help facilitate Benji's transition into his new home, and to set him up for success.***
