     This very large girl is Annie. She is a 1-2 yr old Anatolian Shep mix.

    This beautiful puppy girl is Daria. She is about 6 months old and is possibly a Catahoula mix. She is a very sweet little girl, who had a rough start. She was running at large and didn't really trust people so had to be trapped but once she got to the shelter we found out she was a very friendly little girl.

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-01-00605Shad (male)

Boxer 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 big guy is Shad. He is supposed to be a Boxer but he looks more American Bulldog to me. He is around 2 years old and is a very sweet boy. Shad is good with other dogs and would probably be best around older children just due to his size. Not sure how he is with cats. Shad's previous owner said he has some anxiety issues and doesn't like to be alone, he tends to get in to trouble, but there are things that can be done to help this behavior. Shad has also been getting out of his yard which in part has to do with the seperation so would need a secure yard and a high fence or a kennel to be in when outside. Shad is housetrained and ... (Read More)does walk well on a leash. As you can see Shad is also an all white dog, he hears and sees fine, may have some allergies, but he can't be out in the sun for long periods of time, he is prone to skin cancer due to his color. If you are interested in Shad please call the Benson Animal Shelter at 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be around $70, goes by weight, and will cover his neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

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

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    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)

Rescue Me ID: 14-05-17-00378Remi (male)

Australian Cattle Dog 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 sweet little guy is Remi. He's about a year old Heeler mix. Remi was in a home where he wasn't being taken care of very well and was taken in by another couple so he would have a better home life. Unfortunately Remi finds ways to get out of his yard. He can jump a 4 ft. chain link fence and if not jumping will dig out. His new owners tried an electric fence and Remi chewed through it to get out, not sure how, maybe it was shorted out somehow. Other than that Remi is a very sweet good natured dog who thrives on attention. He is good with other dogs, he had a Pug in the home with him and had kids in his home that ranged from 3-10 ... (Read More)yrs old. Remi is housetrained and had a doggie door to use but preferred to stay outside more than be inside. Remi's owners think that if Remi had a lot of room to run like a ranch that he would be happier. They said he went to stay at their parents home with acreage and he didn't try to get out of the yard while he was there. So if you would like to adopt Remi and think you can give him the home he needs then contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will cover his 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)

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 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.

    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 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 ...
