He seems to be fitting in very nicely and is very loveable.
Walks wonderful on a leash and is very good at obeying the “dog rules.” 

 I think he and Emily have become good friends already.

 The whole family loves him. 

ADOPTED. Ben could not wait to jump into the car 



They called me Gentle Ben at the shelter in North Carolina. Someone had called Animal Control and had me picked up from a house. I think it is where I used to live, but they did not say that I was their dog and had a name. I learned my new name within a week! I don't know why I was taken to the shelter. I sure had belonged to someone before who cared for me. I walk well on leash, and i can shake paw and sit and who knows what else. I am also house trained. Fixed of course and up to snuff on everything. 

I am not a youngster, about 7years old , but I still love to play , and most of all I love to be close to people. And other dogs. I am like a good natured uncle with the pesky terriers here.

They thought I might be a Bouvier. I have a double coat, need good brush-outs ever so often, and I don't mind that at all! 

So if you are looking for a watchful, alert dog with an impressive bark and the personality of a gentleman, look no further!
