Benji in Franklin, TN

Update 7-1-24: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!
Benji is an 8-month old Black and Tan Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He is a sweet and sensitive pup that is slowly coming out of his shell. He is shy and cautious but that might change as he gets a little bit older. He loves to play with toys and is learning to play fetch. Benji has discovered the couch and would like to spend all of his time curled up in comfort.
Benji is making progress with housetraining but his new owners will need to be consistent to set him up for success. He is happy and content in his crate. Benji is quiet and relaxed in the car. He is still unsure about leash walking and is slowly getting more confident.
Benji had giardia, parasites, and an ear infection when rescued but has been treated for all 3. The rescue has also gotten him up to date on vaccines, started on flea and tick prevention, and microchipped. At 11 lbs, he is a little small for his age so the vet recommended waiting to neuter him until he is 1 year old. 
Benji would do best in a quiet home without children under 10 and another dog that can show him the ropes. He will need a secure yard. The adoption agreement will include an agreement to neuter and enroll him in puppy classes which will help with his confidence. 

If you believe you would be a great fit for Benji please make sure you have an application submitted and email Liz Nigh at of your interest. Please identify which state you are located in the email.
