Rescue Me ID: 15-07-13-00523Jezebel (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This girl is Jezebel. She is a Boxer about 1.5 years old. Jez is a sweet girl and full of life. Jez is energetic and likes to run around, so she may make a good walking/jogging companion. Jez did come in with another female dog and I know she's been around other dogs in her yard, but it would be best to bring your dog to do a meet and greet just to make sure they get along. I can't say how she's going to be with a cat, not sure if she's ever been around them. She is good with kids. Jez's one bad point is she can be an escape artist. She will need a secure yard with a good fence that is at least 6' high. She has been known to pull ... (Read More)out of her collar and harnesses when tied. If you would like to adopt Jez then contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. Her adoption fee will be $25 as she is already fixed and vaccinated. (Less)

    These cute little kittens are Hermione, Weasly, Ginny, and Silas. They are about 3 1/2 months old and are going in next week to be fixed and get their vaccinations. So these four are a little rough around the edges, they came in to us as semi feral kittens and we've been working with them daily handling them and moving them and holding them and they're ready for adoption! Ginny and Silas are actually very loving kittens but Hermione and Weasly will be more independent and only want love on their terms. We've had them for just over a month and they've come a long ways. They love to play with their kitty toys and each other. They are ... (Read More)young and should be ok with other cats, should be young enough to learn to get along with dogs as well. They are all litterbox trained. If you are looking for a great little kitten to add to your family you should contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600.

Anatolian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This young boy is now known as Bodie. He looks to be a male Anatolian mix about a year old. He is a friendly, outgoing, playful young guy and is going to make a great playmate for kids. Bodie was a stray so we don't know much about him. Not sure how he is with other dogs so a meet and greet with your dog is a must to make sure they will get along. We also don't know how he is with cats. When I took him out the other day he loved to be made over and played a little bit with the tennis balls. I don't know about any house training, he does ok on a leash, still needs some work. If you would like to meet Bodie please give the Benson ... (Read More)Shelter a call at 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $80 which covers his neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

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 Chow/Retriever mix and looks to be about 2 years old. I just can't say enough about Rusty! He is truly and awesome dog! He's very affectionate with his people and likes convincing us to give him belly rubs! Just to show how much he bonds with his people; when I got back from a weeks vacation he wouldn't quit whining until I went in his kennel to see him. Rusty did come in to us as a stray and since he can't talk to me I don't know if he likes cats or not, and I haven't observed him with kids but older kids may be a better fit with him. I also can't say if he's house trained. As for other ... (Read More)dogs he didn't do well with Capone when they went to the vet together but that could have just been this particular male he didn't like. He might be ok with a female as he was found with one, but a meet and greet would be best. Rusty's one bad habit is barking, but it's usually when he wants attention or strangers are around.. 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 Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This little lady is Maddie. She is a Shepherd mix, approximately 1-2 years old. Maddie is a very sweet and friendly dog who loves to have attention and loves people. She was a stray that was never reclaimed so I don't know if she's house trained or not, she does walk on a leash pretty well. Maddie is not good with other dogs, so will need to be the only dog. I can't say how she will be with cats. I'm sure she is going to be fine with kids also. Maddie is a playful little girl and likes to throw her stuffies around. If you are interested in having an awesome little girl for a companion then you should give the Benson Animal Shelter a call at ... (Read More)520-586-3600. Her adoption fee is only $25 to cover her vaccinations as the vet checked her and she is already spayed. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-15-00362Bambi and Falcor (female)

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 

    Bambi and Falcor are brother and sister, about a year and a half old and are Chihuahua/Papillion mixes? These 2 little dogs are a couple of characters. Falcor is always pretty friendly and outgoing but Bambi likes to play the hard to get girl. She's a little stand offish at the start but once she knows you the little imp will do nothing but try to get in to your lap to be made over! These little guys are so much fun to watch play and run around the yard. They are so full of energy and just love to run around the compound yard! They are going to make some awesome companions for someone. I can't say how they are with kids because they ... (Read More)had no children in their home they lived with a senior couple, so if you have kids bring them so we can see how the dogs are with them. They both will walk on leash but still need some practice they like to wrap around your legs. If you meet them you won't be able to help but fall in love with them! So much for some of the good things, on to the problem areas. Bambi and Falcor were always outside dogs, yes they were kept outside, so they need to be house trained. They also have a bit of a sharp bark but that kind of goes hand in hand with smaller dogs unfortunately. But you really shouldn't let these problems keep you from adoptiong. With the time and effort of a few weeks they could be house trained but it will take time and effort upon your part. As for the barking it's not excessive barking they only bark when they should bark like when visitors come, but it's sharp. Very workable areas. I'm not sure how they will be with other dogs, they have only been with their mother before coming to me so haven't been around other dogs. A meet and greet with your dog would be best. They can be seperated they don't have to go together. If you are interested in one or both of these cool little dogs then call the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. They're adoption fees are $80 each and they are eligible for our sponsorship program to help offset the adoption cost. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    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)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-15-00200Moose (male)

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)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs Vaccinations 

    Meet Onyx! She came to us as a stray from the Whetstone area and was never reclaimed. She looks to be a Pit mix, maybe 4 years old and quite possibly spayed. Onyx is a really sweet girl and very energetic, doesn't hold still long! She seems to be ok with males but not females, but would be best to do a meet and greet with your dog to make sure they will get along. With the personality that she has she should be fine with kids, might knock young ones down with all her energy though. Can't say if she's housetrained since she was a stray but she does walk on a leash. If you would like to adopt this beautiful girl please give the Benson ... (Read More)Shelter at 520-586-3600. Her adoption fee if spayed will only be $25 to cover her vaccinations, otherwise it will be $80 to cover her spay and vaccinations. (Less)

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    CROOKS IS ON A HOLD AT THIS TIME. 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 ... (Read More)adopting Crooks please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600.

Rescue Me ID: 13-12-26-00257Brittany (female)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    At the shelter since 12/26/13 This beautiful lady is Brittany, a female Hound maybe Ridgeback mix, about 4.5 years old. Brittany has been waiting a long time for her special family to find her and adopt her. Brit is one of the brightest, funniest, awesome dogs that I've had the pleasure to meet. She is playful, loving, and full of life. She learns things pretty quickly and would probably be very trainable if someone would be willing to invest the time in her. If you give her stuffed animals she will run around shaking the stuffing out of them just enjoying being a dog. Her and I have had many conversations, she likes to talk. She also ... (Read More)likes to make you play the chase game with her, which means the more you chase her the more she runs, turn and walk away and she follows because this is a great game! If you want to go for a walk she's great on leash! Brit is also good with kids, she's been in a home with them and was always good with them but could jump up on them. Well now that you know some of her great traits now I have to also be honest about her problem areas. Brittany was always an outside dog so is not house trained. Brittany can jump high and will jump a 5 ft. fence so it needs to be at least 6 ft. Brittany is also dog selective. She is not good with other females and can be selective about males although I've had several at the shelter she was ok with. Best if you have a male dog to bring him in for a meet and greet. She would also be good as the only dog. But that seems to be the extent of her problem areas. At least 2 of these problems are correctable. She is already spayed and vaccinated and her adoption fee, wait for it, it's only a whopping $20! That's right $20, what a deal for this dog! So if you're interested in meeting Brittany please give the Benson Shelter a call at 520-586-3600. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
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 ... (Read More)$30 to cover my neuter and vaccinations. (Less)
