Arrival Story:
Was looking online for a companion dog for my Mom. I knew Benji was too big for the rules of her apartment, but also knew the previous vet felt he needed to lose weight. So I went to meet him and knew right away I needed to get him out of that situation. :( I brought him to meet Mom and she confirmed he's too big, then my son's friend wanted him so he went to him but he returned him the next day as his Mom changed her mind. At that time I learned Benji had been bounced around from home to home his entire life. My heart broke for him, and I knew I couldn't continue trying to rehome him. So he's been added to our family.

Bio:
5-24-2007 Benji has been with us 2 1/2 weeks, it took a good week and a half before he touched a toy. Now, he seems to constantly be walking around with one in his mouth. We were told he's a "lhasa apso" but, I think he's a mix of some kind. A rough start, a few fights with the other dogs and Mom getting in the middle and getting the worst of it. 9-13-07 things are settling down and Benji has learned when things get hectic and Mom calls, to turn his back and ignore the others. He truly wants to be a good boy. 3-4-08 Wow it's almost been a year! Benji has truly become a loved family member. He is wonderful, no regrets taking him in, can't imagine our lives without him. He gets so much pleasure from getting a new stuffed animal that despite the fact that they dont last 24 hours, he's so happy to have one....I keep buying them. :) So I stock up when they're marked down!
