Ben is sweet, loveable, cuddly, adorable, charming, delightful,
captivating, friendly, and so much more. He’s a big guy with an amazing
temperament. Ben loves the ladies and puts up with most of the men in
dog world. With humans, he loves everyone. When you meet him, expect big
kisses and even bigger hugs. Since Ben has been fitted with a harness,
he is easier to handle on a leash. He also seems as though he has had
some prior training. He will come when told, sit when told and stay
sometimes. He’s the type of dog that needs a minute to calm before
interacting. He has so much love in his heart, it’s hard for him to
contain it. He just wants to express himself! Ben has been in the
shelter over a month, but he still prefers to potty outside and he stays
relatively calm when in his kennel. He would be a great dog for a
family that has either a big yard , or is very active. Ben has been
neutered, heartworm tested and rabies vaccinated.
Big Ben was found on St. Rt. 550 near Amesville. He is a large dog that is thought to be around 2 years old.
