Changing Lives … One Tail at a Time …


**Adoption pending!! ** Gentle Ben is an incredibly affectionate, happy-go-lucky 7 month old 60 lb Shar Pei / Shepherd mix. This boy’s favorite thing in the world is people, followed closely by food. At 60 lbs he is very underweight, so he is currently enjoying lots of food and treats in his foster home.

Ben was homeless when he was found by a good samaritan; he had been hit by a car and was very bruised and battered. Amazingly, he had no broken bones and he has recovered very well- he just has a slight limp which is getting better daily.

He is a joyful boy who already knows “sit” and is getting very good at “stay”. In Ben’s mind he is a lap dog, but he responds very well to redirection and positive reinforcement. He is eager to learn- and when he learns something new he is very pleased with himself!

Ben is ready to give his big heart to someone, and will be a loving companion in his lucky forever home.
