I'm ready for my new family!

I'm Available

Benito is a 1 year old, 15 lbs, cairn terrier yorkie mix.

All this little terrier wants to do is be close to his person, preferably a female but with time he adjusts to men. Benito deeply bonds, loves to sit beside you and get cuddles. He will run around the house, enjoys walks (he is good on a leash) but mostly he likes to lounge close to you. He does not like the crate unless you are nearby, he prefers to follow you around the house. He does let you know if he has to go out. This submissive easy going pup is fine with the foster's teen but we don't recommend younger kids since he can get nervous. He is good with his foster dogs: curious, a little nervous but playful. He passes other dogs well on the street. He has growled at men in passing; no real aggression likely fear; he came from an abusive situation. Benito's foster writes, "Benito is an incredibly loving boy! He would do best with owners who are home most of the time, because he gets incredibly bonded to his humans. He just loves sitting in the same room as his owner, and sitting on the couch together for snuggles. He does whimper if his owner goes into another room so he needs to be able to follow you around the house. However, he is perfectly behaved in a crate overnight as long as he is in the same room as me. He doesn't need a ton of exercise (he gets very tired on long walks anyway) so he is just a very chilled out and sweet dog. He is polite when meeting other dogs on the streets, and has been great with most strangers but does prefer women."
