All about Benson
This handsome 6-year-old Newf arrived in our care on December 10 and is settling into his foster home nicely. He is a sweet and friendly fella' who has so much love to give. A typical Newf, he is pretty sure everyone he meets needs a good dose of drool on them and he happily obliges.
Benson's vet appointment on Dec 11 showed a heart arrhythmia so we are taking him to a cardiologist to figure out the cause of the irregularities and to come up with a treatment plan. The earliest available appointment we could get to see the specialist is in February.
Benson's owner reported that he enjoyed playing with some dogs, but could also have some issues with other dogs. Sometimes he postures and puts his chin on backs and other behaviours that many dogs will not tolerate. He is likely best suited to a home where he will be the only dog, but we are going to do further assessments of this in the coming weeks.
Updates to come.
