About me

Hi I'm adorable Benson who loves human company and I act like a pup despite being 10 years old!  I will benefit from having someone around most of the day for company and regular toilet breaks, and I'm looking for someone who has patience to settle me into a new routine.  Bouncy is a good way to describe me and one of the reasons why I need to live with children over 12 years old - I could accidentally knock young ones over and I can forget my manners around food and toys and get a bit grabby.  I love other dogs and I'm a typical boxer, my way of greeting is to bounce around a lot!  I need to stay on a longline when I'm out and about because I'm deaf but I am starting to learn hand signals.
