He’s small but mighty! Introducing Benny, the 4kg Yorkie, who’s big personality outweighs his body weight.

Benny may be small, but don’t allow his size to fool you, as he’s still an incredibly active chap that enjoys quiet countryside walks and exploring the outdoors. He is super responsive to training if there is a tasty treat involved and loves to learn new tricks!

He can be wary of new people initially so would benefit from a home with minimal visitors and would require his adopters to be willing to build his confidence with strangers at his own pace. As Benny prefers the quieter side to life he would benefit from living in a low populated/or rural area to avoid him becoming frequently triggered by busy/noisy environments.

Benny loves his bed and home comforts, but has shown resource guarding behaviours around these things, therefore will need his new adopter(s) to be super understanding, patient and willing to allow him space, as well as confident in managing these behaviours within the home, while continuing the training already started at the centre. Benny will require a quiet adult only home and should not be socialised with children.

Please provide in detail on your perfect match form your previous experience of managing resource guarding behaviours. Benny’s adopters must also be committed to visiting him at the centre located in Gloucestershire (GL2 7AS) for multiple viewings (4+) in order to build a bond.

If you feel you are be able to offer the right home environment for Benny and are keen to take on his training needs, let us know by filling out a perfect match form below:
