At present, Benny would like to be the only dog in his new home but once settled, the new owners could work on socialising with suitable doggy friends.

Due to his breed, Benny has a high chase drive, so is unable to live with caged animals or cats.

Tracey Rae, rehoming centre manager, said: “Benny would like his new owners to have plenty of time for him. He will enjoy nice long walks followed by a snooze at home.

“He comfortable around children and would like his own enclosed garden so he has a safe area for good run around.

“Benny loves company and becomes anxious when left alone. He is looking for a home where he will have plenty of time to get settled before needing to be left.

“He travels well in the car and is practicing his loose lead walking.”
