5 Amazing Things About Benjamin:
This is a potentially GREAT dog, but he’s going to need some work before that’s true.
• He actually talks to you. If you sit down and talk to him, he’ll smile and chatter right back. It’s insanely cute.
• He LOVES to play fetch. I mean to the point that he’ll drive you nuts until you comply. He figured out how the ball throwing machines work and catches the ball before it goes anywhere. No shortcuts with this sweetheart.
• Benji is an EXPERT tugger. He consistently kicks my 65lb Dalmatian’s ass when it comes to tug. 🤣

Name of Pet: Benjamin
Location: Cibolo, Texas, 78108
Type of Pet: dog
Breed of Pet: Rat Terrier Chihuahua Mix
Sex of Pet: Male
Age of Pet: 3
Health Problems: No
Behavior Issues: Yes This dog has been alone for most of his life and as a result, he’s clingy and attention starved. Over the past few months, he’s definitely had more socialization time and I’ve seen great improvements in him, but he’s still got a ways to go.
• He’s incredibly reactive and barks at dogs outside of our fence without prompt. He’s difficult to correct or redirect when he’s like this. This behavior isn’t present when he’s sharing a yard with other dogs (dog park, with my boys, etc.).
• He alerts at almost everything. I have this on my bad stuff list because it’s excessive. e.g. My boys alert when someone is at the door; Benji alerts when someone walks by our house.
• He steals treats and is quite aggressive when taking them. Shouldn’t be treated or fed with other dogs. Again, he should be the center of attention and while he’s capable of adapting, his best shot is as a solo act.
• He does NOT respond to “drop it” if it’s something he shouldn’t have (socks, tissues, etc.). He will run, growl, nip, etc. This is purely a negative attention grab and can be trained out of him. He never consumes the prohibited thing.
• His nails are all black and unmanaged. They’re going to need some work to get them shortened down and healthy again. He’s been quicked prior so he’s understandably apprehensive.
• He’s a yappy, skiddish little thing and his socialization skills need work. He has been bitten by another dog as a result of his inability to remain calm in enclosed greeting/social situations.
Up To Date on Vaccinations: Yes
Gets along with cats: Unknown
Gets along with dogs: Yes
Good with Children?: Good With Children aged 8 and up
House Broken or Litter Trained?: Yes
Crate Trained?: Yes
Accessories Included: two door metal kennel
variety of toys
This is a smart, capable, extremely athletic dog. He’s loving and cuddly and will do almost anything to win your attention/affection. Very much chihuahua – little dog aggressive and possessive of people, toys, etc.
• No formal training or proper socialization, but in just a couple of months, I’ve worked with him 1 on 1 and he is now reasonably responsive to the basic commands (nose, sit, down, stay, drop it). I have no doubt he could accept and learn advanced training with attention and consistency. He LOVES learning and the attention that comes with it.
• He’s extremely toy and food motivated. He’ll work for fetch, snacks, or straight kibble.
• Fully potty trained. More so than he needs to be. My niece would leave him for 10-12 hours while she was at work. Will potty on or off leash.
• He’s good on a harness and leash. No issues putting his gear on. He’ll get excited and pull a bit, but it’s easily corrected with consistency.
Benjamin’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
• Small Kong and Chuck-It balls are his favorite
• He’ll shred shredders he doesn’t like in 2 minutes flat, but if he likes it, he’ll carry it around and sleep with it.
• He currently eats Purina Pro Plan Small Dog shredded chicken. 1 cup per day.
• Chicken Zukes are his favorite training treat, but he’s not picky.
• Oravet Dental Chews at least every other day.
• He LOVES to steal socks. He doesn’t damage them, he just hoards them. Check under the bed.
• He likes to be tucked in at night. Completely under the covers. ❤️
My niece adopted him well before she was ready to have a dog and because of her schedule, he’s by himself a LOT. He needs stimulation and training and human companionship.
Highly recommend he is the only pet.
Someone who will take him with them whenever/wherever they go.
Needs an active lifestyle; he loves to go to the park and play fetch, but active can just mean the backyard. At the end of the day, Benji just needs someone to be with him and to play with him regularly.
