Benji ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

Benji here! I am a 6 year old Australian Terrier. What was I doing in that shelter? I don't know- my family left me there. But when Silky Rescue called about me, it was the beginning of my new life. It's about time somebody figured out that I am NOT a Silky! Haruumph!

My foster mom has discovered what a good boy I am. I have never had an accident in the house and always wait to go outside. I like all humans and dogs, even the mean dog that lives here. I would love to have my own home again with a yard to play in and a nice person or two to spend time with. Could you be that person?

Benji Benji is neutered, microchipped, and up to date with all shots. His teeth are shiny clean and he is showing the benefits of getting good food. He is mellow and easy going, wants to be in the same room you are in, but not really a cuddly lap sitter. He is too terrier for that! He knows how to sit on command, and has a darling trick where he sits up for food. He is a very easy dog to have around the house. He has a deep bark that he uses only when there is something outside, and will be quiet when told to be. He does not like to be left alone, but sleeps quietly in a crate at night. He is very good in the car. He is about 9" tall at the shoulder and weighs 16 pounds.

Benji has a bad knee, so we are looking for a home that is not expecting him to be athletic. He is happy to go for walks, but pulls like a sled dog, so will need some lessons in walking nicely! We think Benji will do better in a home with no young children. We know he is interested in cats, but do not know if he would leave them alone or not.

Benji's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to take proper care of him. Local applicants will be given preference. His adoption fee is $300.00. If you are interested in Benji, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email us at and let us know you are interested in Benji (please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).Benji
