Benji: NJ Sheltie Rescue

 

This little cutie pie is Benji!

Currently 6 months old, 10.2 lbs and perhaps 11-1/2″ at the shoulder,  he’s going to stay on the small side when mature.  Apparently he’s quite the little character!

His foster mom reports that he loves to be snuggled and will stand on his hind feet with his paws on your leg asking to be picked up & held!  OMG, every Sheltie lover’s dream dog!

He’s also SOOO fast, his tiny body becomes a blur as he races around the room when playing with his “housemates”.  Pounces with delight on toys; which we all know is always just too cute for words. His foster mom is working on his house manners (and he has improved quite a bit since his first day in foster care less than a week ago!)

Benji is one of 3 puppies [age 5-6 months] recently rescued from the Lancaster mills by NJ Sheltie Rescue.  If you can’t resist adopting one of these sweeties, please visit NJ Sheltie Rescue’s website and complete an application:  www.njsheltierescue.org

Act fast, because with a face like that, you know he is going to be adopted quickly!!!!

8/14/2011 Benji is pending adoption, but two others are still looking for homes!

  1. I saw sweet little Benji’s face, and immediately filled out an adoption application. He looks so much like my Neechee, and his personality would do Bela a world of good – maybe bring her out of her shell. I would so love to bring this baby into my home – I’d travel any number of miles.

  2. I’ve never left a comment before, but I just can’t resist little Benji! He’s going to be getting a forever home very soon. I kinda wish it were me, but it’s a long way to California. What an adorable sheltie!

  3. Look. At. That. Faaaaaace!!!!

    OMG, Benji, you are a heartbreaker! I wish I could meet you, but I’m on the other coast….. :(

  4. Benji is adorable. He will be adopted soon.

  5. I wish I could go to NJ and get one. So adorable. Once again Sheltie Nation slays me with abundant sweetness.

  6. BLESS THE RESCUE TEAM FOR SAVING THESE ADORABLE PUPPIES !! BENJI IS JUST PRECIOUS AND LOVE THOSE LONG LEGS !!!! IF I COULD I WOULD LOVE TO TAKE HIM BUT ALAS I CANNOT. ONLY ABLE TO HAVE MY ONE SHELTIE I HAVE NOW. BUT I CANNOT FATHOM BENJI NOR THE OTHER TWO NOT BEING ADOPTED. I PRAY THEY FIND GOOD HOMES ASAP !

  7. I believe he could be related to my Spot…

  8. Beyond adorable. I know Benji will light up someone’s life. He deserves a wonderful home, hopefully very soon! Thanks NJ Sheltie Rescue!!!

  9. *** there were originally five sheltie puppies, two of which have been adopted. The three waiting for adoption are totally adorable !!

  10. NJ Sheltie Rescue wants to thank South Jersey Rescue for getting 20 puppies [assorted breeds] and contacting us so that we could bring the shelties into our rescue organization. Their car-and-van pick ups between Lancaster and Mt. Royal, NJ Plus coodinating all the e-mails & arrangements were totally awesome !!!
