Benny is an amazing example of not letting hardships get you down. He was found wandering the streets of a town in Illinois. He was already missing a leg and his eyes were severely dry making it hard for him to see. After being rescued and moved to Minnesota Benny was adopted into his forever home. Here he has received the proper medical attention and medication to help him live a comfortable life as a three-legged, half-blind, and part hairless dog.
Benny is one of the most affectionate and charismatic dogs that his family has ever had the pleasure of knowing. He has no idea that he is missing a leg and he ventures into every unknown landscape with no fear, even though he can't really see what's ahead of him. Also, Benny looks different than other dogs due to his breed type, but he embraces his differences and knows he is as cute as any furry dog.
Benny waited almost a year before he was adopted, but he thinks the wait was worth it. Both Benny and his parents believe every animal deserves a loving home that's the right fit for them. This is why we trot for Secondhand Hounds.
On July 26th (a day before Benny's mom & dad's wedding anniversary) Benny and his family will go for a 2-5 mile hike (depending on the heat). Don't worry, Benny will riding along in his backpack. :)
