About Us
Benji, the Pet of the Day
Name: Benji
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Breed: Lhasa Apso/Terrier
Home: Nova Scotia, Canada
   Benji came into our lives over 2 years ago. He was 2 years old at the time and looked like a vagabond. His previous owner couldn't keep him because of his other dog stopped eating while Benji was around. So that meant eating, sleeping and spending his days (sometimes cold and damp) outside. We took him in our home, cleaned him, trimmed him and gave him the foot of our beds to sleep on. He is smart, lovable like a teddy bear and his dark brown eyes can win anyone's heart. He can do many tricks to keep us entertained.

   Benji does quite a few tricks which include lying down, rolling over, sit pretty, give you his paw (then the other when asked), and just recently dunking his head into the water to pick up a rock we threw in for him.

   At home he sits on the back of the couch, where he can see out the front window. So when he sees us pulling up the driveway, he waits until we get out of the car and darts for the door to greet us. He makes our day a brighter one no matter what he does.
