Age: 10

Weight: 42

Personality: Benji is a well-behaved little senior red head who came to GRR from Waco. She has that sweet sugar face typical of Golden Retrievers “of a certain age.” Her foster mom is in the process of helping Benji gain a few pounds to get to a more normal weight.

She was obviously taught her manners sometime in her pre-GRR life because she is completely housebroken and well-behaved, which allows her to be free to roam the house. Benji sleeps soundly through the night.

She tries to engage one of her foster brothers in a rousing game of bitey-face, but Colonel doesn’t seem interest. But this is a good indicator that she does get along fine with other dogs, Benji hasn’t had any exposure to cats.

Benji is good in the car, but a bit “all over the place” when it comes to leash walking, something that is totally fixable, Retrieving does not seem to be in her repertoire, as she just watches the ball roll away. But she will keep a ball and play with it by herself.

Benji is loving and affectionate and it took her no time at all to learn and settle into the routine at her foster home. She lays down and crosses her paws, one over the other, just like a lady should!

Ideal Home: Since Benji is entering her senior years, a forever family looking for a quiet companion would be perfect for her. Another dog for her to play with would be nice, too.
