SPECIAL COVID NOTICE: We realize that many of you are home from work right now and adopting a dog seems like a great idea. Which, it may be! Or may not. Please think about what your life will be like once things go back to “normal.” Will you have enough time each day to dedicate to a dog, based on the dog’s individual needs? If you are looking for a dog to socialize with kids, other dogs, etc., please do not submit an adoption application, as we do not recommend that for any dog. Nor do we recommend dog parks or dog daycare. Visit the resources section of our website for more info on those topics.

Please note that none of our foster homes have children, so we have no idea how any of our dogs would do living in a home with kids and/or if they would enjoy it. None of our foster homes have cats either, so if you have a cat and are looking to adopt a dog, we can send you info for slow introductions which will require separating a dog from your cat for some time.

As for Benny:


It is in fact impossible to know what he is mixed with. He’s about 3 years old and just over 30 lbs, with the cutest short little legs and long body. Everyone who meets Benny falls instantly in love and can’t get over how ridiculously adorable he is. And he has a ridiculously adorable personality to boot! Benny is easy going, chill and relatively low/medium energy.

He likes going for walks and is a dream on leash. Inside the house he likes playing with his toys and sleeping upside down in his dog bed. Benny also loves to snuggle! Benny is the kind of dog who puts a smile on your face whenever you see him.

Benny loves adults but is not comfortable around kids. Other that that, he’s a breeze! Housebroken too – and he rides well in the car. Benny is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.

Please note that the first step in our process is the adoption application found on our website www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org.
