Hello, my name is Bennecio, but you can call me Bennie! I am a very sweet and affectionate boy who just wants someone to love. I really like belly rubs and will flop down on my back in front of you so you can reach all my favorite places. I am great with kids, cats, and other dogs. I am awesome on a leash but could benefit from a puppy training class to learn some more commands, but my foster Mom says I am very smart and a quick learner. (She also tells me I am the bestest puppy ever!) I do not like being crated/kenneled at all, so I need a home where I can have a safe room to hang out in when you are not home or can have free roam of your house. I am still a puppy, but am growing into a very distinguished gentleman. 

Can I come home for the holidays to you?

Bennecio is from Texas.
