I'm Benny, Adopt Me!
Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) Mix | Adult | Male

One-and-a-half-year-old Benny is an athletic, exuberant little guy set to charm his way into your heart! When he’s not racing around the yard at lightning-fast speed or playing a spirited game of fetch or tug-of-war, this outgoing superstar enjoys schmoozing and showing off with family and friends! Benny’s also an unapologetic toy fanatic, and he likely won’t say no to a delicious rawhide chew either! Benny would be a great fit for a home that can offer him enough fun and engaging activities to fill the schedule of such an active, in-demand fellow! We recommend he does not go into a home that has cats or small animals. He currently weighs 19 pounds.

All dogs benefit from training! ARF was named 'Best in the East Bay for Dog Training' in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 by Diablo Magazine. All adopters receive a $50 discount off their first class.

Benny's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
