Critter of the Week: Benson

Posted By on Thu, Jun 20, 2013 at 9:00 AM

This week's spotlighted animal from the Humane Society of Southern Arizona is Benson, a 9-year-old, male, Flat-Coated Retriever Mix.


Benson doesn’t act his age. Based on his boundless energy and goofy play style, you would never guess that boisterous Benson is actually 9 years old. Benson didn’t plan on being alone in his Golden Years and is really, really hoping to find the perfect home with lots of toys and love. And having a pool would be a dream come true for this wet and wild water dog. Benson also loves visiting dog parks, going for car rides and running laps around the back yard. Because he can be a little rambunctious, the Humane Society recommends that Benson go to a family with older kids. Bring the whole family to the main shelter for an introduction. As a Hidden Gem, Benson spends his time in staff offices at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona but can’t wait for someone special to offer him life's next big adventure! HSSA is located at 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. Call 327-6088 for information.

***Benson has a waived adoption fee through June, so hurry in!
