#13795 Benjamin - The Potter Pups

Adoptable
Small-size, Male, Baby Chihuahua x Feist,

Hi!

My name is Benjamin and I’m part of The Potter Pups which arrived at OPH on March 28.
I’m guessed to be a 8 week old mixed breed dog. My weight at the moment is 4.2 pounds, but I’ve got lots of growing to do still. I'm a pretty outgoing boy who LOVES people and the most confident pup in my litter. To see more pictures and read about this litter, visit their foster mom’s blog- AnotherGoodDog.org

I'm searching for…

- Someone who won't leave me home alone for more than 4 hours, at least not until I am older. The older I am, the more I can stay home alone. I just don't want you to get mad at me if I have accidents or chew things I'm not supposed to when you leave me for too long. I'm a puppy, so I get bored quickly and when I'm bored I could get in trouble.

- I am looking for my forever home, not my for right now home. So as I get bigger I need someone to teach me how to be the best dog I can be. I am young and still learning. You may want to teach me some new tricks like sit, stay, etc. Professional training will help me bond with you. That sounds like fun!

- I saved the most important for last. I am hoping my new mom or dad will snuggle with me, play with me and love me forever and ever!

Please note that because this puppy is so young, it has only received 2 of the required 3 puppy distemper vaccines. This is very IMPORTANT because it means that the immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. Until then, the puppy MUST stay out of public places where it could be exposed to the germs of other dogs. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity.

This puppy is microchipped and up to date on age appropriate vaccines and monthly preventatives.

Benjamin - The Potter Pups Benjamin - The Potter Pups is currently being fostered in Manassas, VA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
