Benji Respectfully Wants to Know What the Hold Up is With His Adoption

Benji Respectfully Wants to Know What the Hold Up is With His Adoption

Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue

"There was a foster that had a dog and Benji was his name, oh, B-E-N-J-I, B-E-N-J-I, B-E-N-J-I- and Benji was his name, oh!" Hi, my name is Benji, in case you didn't catch that. I am a full-blooded Chocolate Lab who is 1.5 years old and comes in at a very healthy and fit weight of 85 pounds. I was surrendered to Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue in central Arizona due to my previous family not having the time to provide me with the proper exercise and socialization that I needed to be a very well-balanced boy.

Adopt, Don't Shop

Since I have been with my foster and K-9 family of five, I have been able to play, get proper exercise, and interact with friends that I so enjoy being with. I love to hike, go for walks, play with all sorts of toys, go for car rides, get belly rubs, and take a shower with my humans, that is if you'll let me! I also love all people and have come to learn that I enjoy having other K-9 companions with me to play with. My foster mom says having other doggos to live and play with is a needed/important part of my overall well-being and fun-natured and balanced disposition.

Labrador Retrievers

I also get along well with cats and even desert tortoises, which is a good thing where I live now. I am considered mild to high energy, so I will need a strong, calm, confident leader who will continue to help me be the best version of myself and to have a K-9 companion or two that loves to play as I do. If you are ready for some fun, lots of kisses, super cool adventures, and are looking for a sweet, loving companion and best friend, I would love to meet you ASAP!

If this sounds like you, hit me up at for more information and an adoption application today. I'll be waiting!!!!!
