Hi everyone, my name is Benny.  I'm a young good-looking tricolor field English Setter. I’m just 15 months old (my birthday is May 26, if you’d like to know) and I weigh 35 lbs. 

I have quite the joie de vivre (love of life).  I am an active boy and I will need regular exercise.  I am also a hunting school drop out because I would rather curl up on a soft bed or a lap, if you would let me.  I don't mind going in my crate when asked.  Sometimes you may find me in there just to have some quiet time.

At my foster home, I live with 3 dogs and 2 cats. I'm okay with the cats, but I will chase them if they run.  So it may be better that I don't go to a home with cats.  

I have very good house manners.  I don't do garbage cans, I get much better food in my bowl! I don't counter surf and I know my basic commands.  I walk better with a harness; there are so many things to check out on my walks that I can't help myself from moving ahead.  I do like car rides and I settle right down on the floor.

I do have a few wishes for my forever home:

1. I love to run, so a nice backyard with a fence would be great.
2. An active person or family. I would do well with older kids because of my energy.
3. If you have other dogs, can they be young at heart? I’d like to play.
4. A soft bed and yummy food.
5. Last but not least:   Tons of cuddles!

What are you looking for in a pup?  I might just fulfill your wishes too!


Steve, Teri & Miss Sophia Sauer hope that Benny is soon cuddling with his forever family after a long run in the backyard!

Benny gives big Setter "roo" of thanks to Pamela Miller for being his foster friend while he waits for his forever home.
