Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Beethoven is about 3 months old and is a male Aussie/Great Pyrenese mix. He is an awesome little puppy, very calm and mellow for his age. He is the last one available out of a litter of 7. Beethoven will of course need to be house and leash trained. He is going to make a great companion for a family and would be very trainable to do many different things. He is fine with other dogs and at his age will be able to live with a cat. He will make a great kids dog because he isn't jumpy and nippy like some puppies can be. If you would like to adopt Beethoven, give me a call at the Benson Animal Shelter 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $80 to ... (Read More)cover his neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

Chow Chow 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 handsome young boy is now called Capone. He is a 10 month old Chow mix. Capone is a very friendly dog, who loves to play and run around and investigate things. Capone was in a home with a Chihuahua so should be fine with small dogs and seems to be fine with females or males, but it would be best to do a meet and greet. Capone should be fine with kids to but does like to jump up and could knock a small child down while playing. Can't say how he will be with a cat. He may be housetrained but can't say for sure on that either and he does walk ok on leash but could still use some work on leash. If you would like to adopt Capone please ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-16-00396Rusty (male)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Rusty is a very handsome boy and looks to be maybe a Golden Retriever/Chow mix. He and Capone look a lot alike. Rusty is about 2 years old. He walks on leash but I don't know if he's house trained since he was a stray. Rusty is a pretty friendly boy and likes to have his share of attention. The one bad habit Rusty has is barking, but it's more of a barking to get attention than barking just to bark. I'm not sure how he will be with children since we haven't been able to observe him with kids. Older children might be best. We aren't sure how he is with other dogs, seems ok with females but not sure about males and we can't say about cats ... (Read More)either. Rusty will make a great companion dog. If you are interested in adopting Rusty please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $80 to cover his neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    This awesome, handsome young man is now called Ranger. He is an 8 month old German Shepherd. Ranger is a very friendly dog, though a bit on the needy side which if you know Shepherds they can be. He was in a home with an older woman who just couldn't handle his energy. Ranger seems to be fine with other dogs and would be good with kids to play with, but can't say about cats, he would probably chase them. Ranger does have quite a bit of energy as i said so needs an energetic family or hikers/joggers. He does walk on leash but could use a little work and could be house trained, not sure on that. If you are interested in this beautiful German ... (Read More)Shepherd please give me a call at the Benson Shelter, 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $80 to cover his neuter and vaccinations.

Chihuahua    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 

    Momma's is a very sweet little Chihuahua that is in need of a forever home. She is approximately 4 yrs old. Momma's came from a home that had 5 kids in it from age 8 to 15 years old. They fell on some bad times and some nice people took Momma's and her son, but they just have to many animals to take care of. Momma's and her son were originally supposed to go back to their home but their original owner's decided not to get them back At this time Momma's is currently still with her 2nd family as they are hoping to rehome her without having to bring her in to the shelter. Right now she shares a home with 2 other dogs and 2 cats and she's ... (Read More)fine with both. At this time she uses a doggie door but before having the doggie door she would ask to go out. She is housebroken and stays in her crate at night. Her owners describe her as protective, loving, adaptable, and a great lap dog. She likes to put her head in your chest and rub it. If you are interested in giving Momma's a new forever home please contact Toi at 928-713-4639. To help get Momma's adopted we would like to offer her new adopter the option of having her fixed and vaccinated at our vet at the discounted shelter rate, so the cost would run about $75 for the spay/rabies/parvo/distemper vaccinations. If you would like to do that please give me a call at the animal shelter at 520-586-3600. (Less)

    This handsome young man is Diego. He is about a year old Boxer mix and is a very friendly and outgoing boy. Diego had a 3 yr old child in the home with him and he was always good with her but he does play somewhat rough and doesn't know his own strength and may knock a small child down. Diego was also with another male dog and was fine with him but it is always best to bring your dog for a meet and greet. Diego hasn't been around cats so don't know how he is with them. He does know sit when told to sit. Diego is not housetrained but has stayed nights in the kitchen and didn't have an accident but he will probably need to be house trained. ... (Read More)His previous owner got him as a puppy but was an older lady and just couldn't handle his energy level. Diego's adoption fee is only $25 as he was already neutered when he was brought in so he just needs to have his vaccinations done.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    These two little dogs are Bambi and Falcor, they are Chihuahua mixes about a year old. They were in a home with a senior couple and have not been around children so young children probably would not be a good idea, I would recommend 10 yrs and older. The only other dog in the home with them was their mother so not sure how they will be with other dogs and there was also a cat in the home so should be fine with cats. These dogs have not been house trained they were kept outdoors and were only brought in when cold outside. They were always very gentle and affectionate with their owners but they just couldn't afford to take care of them any ... (Read More)longer. They do seem to be very nice little dogs and will make good companions. If you are interested in Bambi and Falcor, together or seperately give us a call at the Benson Shelter, 520-586-3600. Both dogs adoption fees will be $80 each to cover their spay/neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

    This little girl is named Jazz. She is about a year old and is a Lab mix. She has been in a home with kids from ages 5 yrs to 13 yrs and she was always gentle and tolerant with them. Her owner said she is good with other dogs but doesn't know about cats. She has been an outdoor only dog so will need to be housetrained. She can be just a little bit shy but should warm up quickly. Her owner didn't have the time to spend with her and wanted her to find a home where her people can play with her and spend time with her. If you would like to adopt Jazz please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. Her adoption fee will be $80 to cover ... (Read More)her vaccinations and spay. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Puppy

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

    This big guy is Moose! He is an American Staffordshire Terrier about 7-8 months old. Moose fits his name, he is a big playful lug! He is great with people and would be fine with kids, maybe older ones since he is such a handful and could knock small kids down. He is not good with small dogs and may not be good with other males so a large female may be a good fit, but a meet and greet would have to be done to see how they will get along. He did have a female in his home that he was fine with. No cats! This guy is really quite a handsome boy and loves to have attention. He would thrive in a home with some training to make him the dog ... (Read More)he has the potential to be. He does need secure fencing at least 6 feet tall as he can jump shorter fences. IF you would like to adopt Moose please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $80 to 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)

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)

    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 ...
