Benedict's Story

If you’re on the hunt for a canine sidekick to accompany you on all of life’s adventures, then Benedict is the dog for you!  He is a vibrant and energetic boy who is searching for an active family who enjoys physical activity just as much as he does.  Like most Jack Russell Terriers, Benedict loves to be out and about and is constantly on the move, so he would do best in an adults-only home with an owner who has experience with his breed.  Once he has warmed up he is extremely sweet and playful and is always up for going for a long stroll through the park with his favorite humans by his side!

Benedict recently spent some time in a foster home where his foster parents described him as being very sweet and highly affectionate.  He is a huge fan of squeaky toys and has his very own collection here at PAWS that he plays with all day long!  Although squeaky toys are super fun to play with, Benedict’s all-time favorite game has to be fetch!  He even knows to drop the tennis ball near your feet so you can throw it again and again.  To say this boy is talented is an understatement.  He is an absolute super star and seems to know it!  If you’re ready to open your heart and home to a sweetheart like Benedict, then come and meet him today!

  • Squeak!  Squeak!  I love Squeaky chew toys!
  • I'm a great walking partner and can go for miles.
  • I'm a people person!
  • You + a tennis ball = my perfect day.
  • I'll take as much exercise as I can get!


  • I'd love to find an adults-only home.
