Benji was born in Portland, Oregon on July 18, 2012. We adopted him from a veterinary technician who was selling him for her aunt, a local breeder. She did not have AKC papers, and we didn’t even think of them because we had just lost our beloved 10 year old female Maltese, Sophie, and our hearts were empty and aching for another loving "baby" to join our family. When we saw Benji it was love at first sight.
Benji is our loved and cherished pet and he is the life of our family. He gives so much joy to others by engaging them with his irresistible love of people. He has all the qualities desired by those seeking a companion so we decided to breed him. It didn’t occur to us when we purchased him to get papers so he doesn’t have them. If you are looking for a small male to breed with, please review Benji’s attributes.
Benji is outgoing, gentle, happy and a joy to be around. He doesn’t have any behavioral problems (he has a stay at home Mom who keeps a close eye on him). He has gone to obedience training and learns very quickly! He is very alert to noises and is a great watchdog. Although he will bark when someone comes to the door he isn’t a barker otherwise. He loves to be held and is a warm cuddly companion. He walks well on the leash, is a keen listener and follows commands. He loves almost everyone including children. He is frisky and loves to play outside, with others and/or alone with his toys – especially those that make noise.
Benji is in excellent health. There have been no health issues with him. We feed him “Wellness” for small breeds. He is up to date on all immunizations and is flea free. A Brucellosis test is done every six months to establish that he is free of the disease. He does not have an overbite or underbite. He has perfect scissors teeth.
