Benson is a 2 1/2 year old black male with natural ears. Yup, that is me looking out of the rear deck window of my new foster home. I'm a pretty handsome guy, right? So, here is a little information about me. First, my good traits. I am very curious about everything and I need to know what is going on all around me at all times. I will definitely let you know if there is someone in your yard or coming into your house. I am very faithful, and want to be with you all the time. I am really good looking, intelligent and an affectionate guy. When you sit down, I love to come over and put my head on your arm or your shoulder or sit on your lap. I love to play, but when it is bedtime, I want to be close to you and snuggle. I love to go places, love to be walked, and am good at both. I get along very well with my foster brothers and sister, two senior Danes and a Pit Bull. I play well with others, but I can get very excitable at times and just need a little reminder when I go over the top. I will cease my behavior when asked. I love to be praised and am thrilled when I am told I am a good boy. Now for other things that I need work on. I love to 'counter surf'. I will put my front paws up on the counter and scout for whatever goodies that you left for me. I have some separation anxiety, I hate being left alone. I walk into the crate when you take me there before you leave, however, I try to escape when you are gone. I also like to bark when I am left in the crate. However, I will stop barking when told "no bark". I am trying to learn to relax when I am in the crate. Having company on the outside of the crate sure does help and is comforting. My older foster Dane brother presently stays with me, so it is bearable. I do need to be reminded not to bark at times though. So, if you would like to have a very handsome, intelligent, faithful Dane, then I'm the dog for you. Benson came to MAGDRL in March 2019. (2)
