Rescue Me ID: 14-09-10-00679Crooks (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This new guy at the shelter is Crooks. He is about a year old, male Pitbull. Crooks is a really cooll dog. He's playful, likes his belly rubs, he's just a big love bug. Crooks seems to be ok with female dogs and may be ok with a submissive male. It would be best to bring your dog to see how they get along. Crooks does walk on a leash but I don't know if he's housetrained, he may be. He does need a secure yard or he will take his opportunity to get out. I can't say how he is with young kids since I don't know if he's been around any young children, older teenagers he's fine with. If you are interested in adopting Crooks please contact the ... (Read More)Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $80, possibly a little more depending on his weight, and that covers his neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-07-00344Ebony (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This beautiful black cat is Ebony. She is a sweet girl about 6 yrs old. Ebony was in the home with Donna, Trouble, and 2 others named Sweet Gum and Sydney who will also be posted. These girls all had their owners die within a couple weeks of each other and now need to find new homes. Ebony is very friendly but we can't say how she would be with another cat not from her home. She also hasn't been around children so young children would probably not be a good fit for her, an older person/couple or someone with older kids would probably be fine with her. Ebony loves to have attention but doesn't like to be picked up to be cuddled on, she would ... (Read More)prefer to just be next to you to be made over. She really isn't that active either, very laid back and mellow, well over kitten stage. Once in her new home she may enjoy some toys to play with but we haven't seen her play with any here. She does use her litterbox all the time. Ebony must also be an indoor only kitty as she has never been outside. If you would like to adopt Ebony her adoption fee is $40 and she is already fixed and vaccinated and ready to go home. Please give the Benson Shelter a call at 520-586-3600. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-07-00336Donna (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This gorgeous cat is Donna. She is a long hair, brown Tabby, about 6 yrs old. She came in with Ebony, Sweet Gum, and Sydney when their owners passed away so has been here about 3 months now. Donna took a while to adjust to being in the shelter but she is doing fine now. However she is used to living in a nice quiet home with no children in it. She would be best in a home like the previous one she had with an older couple or with older children that will not mess with her like a younger child would. She is quite independent and picks the times she would like to be made over or maybe sit in your lap. She has always been an indoor cat and could ... (Read More)not become an outdoor cat so must stay indoors only. She may also require more grooming since she is a long furred cat. She is always good about using her litterbox. We haven't really seen her play with any toys, but that may be different in her own home. Not sure how she will be with other cats, she was ok with the ones in her home but she might not do well at first with a new cat and it might take some adjustment time. She is fixed and vaccinated and her adoption fee will be $40. So give us a call at the Benson Shelter if you're interested in adopting Donna, 520-586-3600. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-07-00331Jax (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ok folks, need some help again. This old guy, now named Jax, has never been reclaimed, it's amazing considering someone cared enough to take him to a vet to have stitches in his mouth where it looks like it got torn open. Unfortunately due to not being claimed he is facing a very high chance of euthanasia due to his age and the fact that I'm out of room at the shelter. Jax loves his people, is good with kids, seems to be ok with other dogs as long as they are good with him, seems ok with cats to, mellower, quieter dogs would be perfect for him. Jax is about 8 years old, neutered, and current on his shots. I spent some time with him outside ... (Read More)and he's very playful, loves the tug ropes and stuffles stuffies. He loves people and being around them and is having a little separation anxiety not having his own family to be with all the time so someone that is home a good part of the time would be perfect for Jax. This is a very sweet older guy and I'm saddened that someone would just dump him out like this as sweet as he is. He is housetrained and he is leashtrained. He also has some storm anxiety. So what I am looking for is someone who would be willing to adopt him or a rescue group to take him. I will waive the adoption fee and give him to a good, loving, caring home that will treat him like family and has a secure yard that will keep him in.(Home check possible) If you are interested in giving this guy a home please contact me at the Benson Shelter 520-586-3600.

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-07-00319Beau (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This handsome guy is Beau. He is a neutered male Pitbull, approximately 4 yrs old. Beau is a beautiful reddish fawn color. Beau was a stray but we know he's good with kids because the family that found him had a 3 yr old and he was great with him. Not so sure how he will be with dogs, he may be fine with a submissive female as he seems to have a dominant nature or would be best as an only dog to get all of his new owner's love! He is a happy boy and seems very willing to please his person. He's playful and has a lot of energy to burn. He is leash trained and we think house trained but that's not a guarantee. If you would be interested in ... (Read More)adopting this very handsome guy then you should give us a call at the Benson Animal Shelter 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will only be $25 since he was already neutered. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-07-00317Kyle (male)

Corgi Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This little guy was a stray that was never reclaimed. So now his new name is Kyle. He looks like he might be either a Corgi or a Doxie mix. He looks to be about a year or so old. Kyle is a nice little guy just a little on the shy side but very friendly. I haven't had a chance to see him around kids but he would probably be fine around older kids that know how to handle a dog already. He does walk on a leash but I can't say if he's housetrained or not since he was a stray. He seems to be ok with other dogs, but if you have a dog already I encourage you to bring yours down to meet Kyle to see if they will be compatable. I can't say how he will ... (Read More)be around cats. I think Kyle will make a nice little companion for someone. If you are interested in meeting Kyle then give us a call at the Benson Shelter 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $80 which takes care of the cost of his neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-06-00506Mimi, Cici, Nate (female)

Miniature Pinscher    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    These 3 little Min Pins were found here in Benson and never claimed. I think the one with the green collar, Mimi, is the Mom and the two pups are around 8-9 months old. They are all very sweet and loving. Mimi is an attention hog and loves to be made over, she will make a nice lap dog. I think she is about 3 yrs old. I'm not sure how any of them are with other dogs, Mimi barks at others when they are by her kennel but could just be protective of her pups. The boy pup, Nate, is a big love bug, he likes to cuddle and give hugs and be in your lap to. The little girl, Cici, is still a little on the shy side but very friendly, she also ... (Read More)likes to be in your lap getting attention and being made over. I don't think any of them have been housetrained as they are going potty in the inside of the kennel and I'm pretty sure the pups aren't leashtrained, not sure about Mimi the Mom. If you are interested in adopting any of these dogs please give me a call at the Benson Animal Shelter 520-586-3600. Their adoption fees will be around $75-$80 to cover their spay/neuters and vaccinations. Cici's adoption fee is only $25 now as she was adopted and then returned so she's been fixed and vaccinated already. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-18-00353Shea (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

     This beauty is Shea. She is a spayed female PItbull about 2 yrs old, current on vaccinations. Shea is a very sweet dog and loves people. Shea is an awesome dog with a lot of great traits. She loves kids and was in a home with 2 kids age 2 and 6 yrs. When the kids were out in the yard Shea was with them and would follow them around until they went back in the house. Shea is also good with med/large male dogs and should probably only be with a male. She is not good with small dogs and is more of an alpha female so does have some issues with other females occassionaly. She has a lot of energy and likes to run in the yard so needs a large yard. ... (Read More)She is pretty good about staying in the yard there was a 4 ft fence around her previous yard and she didn't try to jump it. Shea is a gentle dog with her humans and likes to lay her head in your lap and enjoys sleeping with you. Shea is housetrained and walks well on a leash. She does like to chew on bones and toys so chew toys would be good. If you would like to adopt Shea please call the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. Her adoption fee will be $50. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-05-00430Sonny, Cher, Chastity (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I would like to introduce to you Sonny, Cher, and Chastity! Yes we have the Black Lab mix trio in the house! They are all about 2 years old, very friendly, and ready to find their new loving homes! These 3 were in a bad situation not to long ago, their owners had no less than 29 dogs in a kennel and they weren't being taken care of properly and they didn't have a lot of human socialization. These three came to me and we worked with them for a couple weeks and they have turned out to be great little dogs! They are very friendly especially the larger female and the male who was the most timid has also come out of his shell. The smaller female ... (Read More)is still a little shy but she's very friendly. They will be fine with kids and should be ok with other dogs but they would need to be introduced just to make sure. They were outdoor only dogs their whole lives so will need to be housetrained. They also need work on leashtraining since they have never been on a leash, they've probably never known what it's like to run around in a yard either until I let them out in the yard the other day to play. The poor little male didn't know what to do in such a large area of space, he kept going back to the kennel and whining at the girls who were busy exploring their new area! These dogs are going to make good companions with a little more work and love from the people who adopt them. They aren't very large dogs either in fact a friend commented they looked more like pocket Labs, guess we have new designer dogs! So if you would like to come and meet one of our trio then you should contact us at the Benson Shelter 520-586-3600. Their adoption fees will cover their spays/neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

     This dog's name is now Paulie. He is a male Pit mix about 2.5 yrs old. He has quite a story, this poor guy we think was a dump in St. David along with his buddy, who was hit and killed by a car. Paulie was very scared and lived in a drain culvert for a bit and was fed by the animal control officer until she could win his trust to catch him. Then he came to me at the shelter and you should see him after just a couple days. He is loving and friendly and loves to have attention. He likes to play and seems to get along with the other dogs he's met so far. Paulie has beautiful markings with just a little bit of brown on the one side of his face. ... (Read More)He likes to talk to you to, when I was doing his pictures he was woofing at me. He walks on a leash well and could possibly be housetrained. He has a great personality and will make a nice family dog. If you would like to meet Paulie then give us a call at the Benson Shelter 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will cover his neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

Catahoula Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Hi, I'm Duke. I'm a 3 yr old, male, Catahoula mix. My owner's brought me in to find a new home because they don't have a fenced yard and I kept breaking my chains and they couldn't keep me in and they were getting in trouble with animal control. I had young kids in my home and was always gentle and tolerant of them. I also had a female dog in my home, but my owners said I get along with all other dogs, but I'm not good with cats or chickens. I am housetrained and was allowed in the house to sleep at night in the daughter's bed, or in bad weather but otherwise I was tied up during the day in the yard. I have never been in a fenced yard ... (Read More)but if you have a 6 foot fence that should be sufficient to keep me in. My owners said I'm a good guard dog and that I also like to play fetch with balls or sticks. So if you're looking for a good dog that just needs a little training to make me a better dog then you should call the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. My adoption fee will be $30 to cover my neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Hi, my name is Brittany! I'm a female, Hound mix, about 3 years old. I need to find a new family as my old family couldn't take care of me or my puppies anymore. I was in the home with kids that were 12 and older but I am gentle and tolerant with them so would probably be good with younger children also. I am not very good with other dogs, might be ok with a male but not females, would probably be best as an only dog though. I was also an outdoor dog so if you would like to adopt me you would have to housetrain me. I do walk on a leash pretty well and the kids used to take me for walks every day. I can jump a 3 ft. fence so would need ... (Read More)fencing that is taller than that. I am very friendly and good natured and have a great personality. If you're looking for a nice friendly dog to become a new family member then you should think about adopting me! Please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. My adoption fee will be $104 which covers my spay and vaccinations. (Less)

Foxhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi my name is Bozo. I'm a 2 yr old, male, Hound mix. I came in with my friend Scuba because our owner's had to many dogs and couldn't feed all of us so they decided to turn the two of us in and now we need to find a new home. I was in the home with a couple that had older kids(teenagers) in the home regularly. Of course there were many other dogs in the home with me so I do get along with other dogs, but not cats. I basically lived outside but was allowed in the home and my owner says I'm supposed to be housetrained. I am a pretty good jumper and could jump out of a lower fence so would need a fence at least 6 ft high. I do walk on a ... (Read More)leash as well. So if you're looking for a handsome hound for a new companion then you should call the Benson Shelter about me at 520-586-3600. My adoption fee covers my vaccinations. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Hi, my new name is Cory. I'm a male, Lab/Pointer mix around 2 years old. I'm a really affectionate dog that loves people although I may need to be a single dog, I might be ok with a submissive female, but you would have to bring your dog in to meet me. I'm really playful and although I'll chase a ball I just will not bring it back. I do walk well on a leash, but since I was a stray that was never claimed the shelter can't say if I'm housetrained. I have a great temprament and should be fine with children. If you would like to make me a member of your family then you should contact the shelter at 520-586-3600. My adoption fee will be ...
