About Benji

NOTE: We're performing meet & greets outdoors wearing N95 masks and maintaining social distancing. If interested in Benji here's the steps: 1. Read his bio carefully. 2. Fill out an adoption app from our website here (copy & paste into your browser): https://www.animalalliancesd.org/adoption 3. We'll then contact you within 48 hours if we think you and Benji are a great match. Not hearing from us just means we don't think you and Benji are a great fit---it doesn't mean you wouldn't be a good adopter for another dog. Please note our adoption decisions are based on what's in the best interest of our animals. We're a small volunteer-based and may not be able to respond to all inquires. _________________________________________________________ Tiny Benji... • Lapdog • Full of life • Friendly • Loving • Great companion • Endearing • Wonderful with all people even strangers • Loves playing with other small dogs. An adoptive home with another small playful dog is preferred. • Tiny enough and friendly enough to be taken everywhere • Hasn't been with cats under our care so we don't know how he is with them • Lives in a home with parrots and pays no attention to them at all • Not recommended for small children because he's so tiny and delicate. • Hasn't had a potty accident in his foster home in quite a few days so we believe he's now housetrained. Benji has access to a dog door so may not know how to ask to go out. Adopters should take him out frequently at first. • Yorkshire Terrier/Terrier mix • 1 yo • 6 lbs • Neutered male • Up-to-date on vaccinations • Microchipped • Adopters must reside in San Diego County (sorry, no exceptions) • All medical paperwork provided • Adoption fee $350 Video (copy & paste into your browser): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rejR3RiSZtU&list=UUiOCLnrG7w8TC9NUpt-GaPw&index=2

We're performing meet & greets outdoors wearing N95 masks and maintaining social distancing. If interested in Andre here's the steps: 1. Read his bio carefully. Adult only home required. 2. Fill out an adoption app from our website here (copy & paste into your browser): https://www.animalalliancesd.org/adoption 3. We'll then contact you within 48 hours if we think you and Andre are a great match. Not hearing from us just means we don't think you and Andre are a great fit or not the best fit of those applications we've received---it doesn't mean you wouldn't provide him with a good home. Due to the popularity of his breed we anticipate dozens of applications. Please note our adoption decisions are based on what's in the best interest of our animals. We're a small volunteer-based and may not be able to respond to all inquires. _________________________________________________________ Andre our Mini Schnoodle is... • Very affectionate • Lapdog • Quiet most of the time • Gets along with other small dogs in his foster home but doesn't play with them - he's more into getting your love • Walks well on a leash • Leary of strangers at first but warms up quickly - newcomers must go slow • Adult only home required • Wants to be with you - Velcro dog • Great companion • Doesn't pay attention to the parrots in his foster home • Hasn't been with cats under our care so we don't know how he is with them • Housetrained and not a marker but his foster mom has a doggie door so Andre may not know how to ask to go out. Adopters should be prepared to take him out frequently at first just like any new dog. • Miniature Poodle/Schnauzer mix. Has hair more like a Poodle's but facial features like a Schnauzer except his nose is a little longer. He doesn't bark much but when he does you can hear the Schnauzer in it. • Neutered male • Up-to-date on vaccinations • Microchipped • 16 lbs • 2 years old • Healthy • Adopters must reside in San Diego County (sorry, no exceptions) • All medical paperwork provided • Adoption fee $450 show less
