We'd lost our dog of 15 years a couple of years before and had sponsored two dogs as we weren't ready to have another one. We had seen a couple in the website but when we came up Benson just jumped out at us....literally! We all knew he was the one for us even though we weren't looking for him. He has boundless energy and lives everyone of all ages. Wouldn't be without him despite the mountains of hair we find all over the place!!
