    Meet Benjamin (aka Big Ben)!  He is definitely a big dog weighing in at 126 lbs.!  He is just a sweet, cuddly teddy bear.  Ben arrived with a torn ACL in his left rear leg.  He was surrendered to RAGOM because of this injury.  Ben will be having surgery in about two weeks.  Since he is overweight, he is on a strict diet in order to lose at least 10 lbs. before the surgery.  His ideal weight is 95-100 lbs.  Ben made a trip to the vet this week and everything checked out beautifully (besides the weight issue).  He has a gorgeous coat, handsome face, and the most wonderful personality.

Ben gets along great with my two resident dogs.  They love to play tug of war with toys, stuffed animals, and even socks!  Ben has settled in very easily at our home.  He is house trained, has free roam of the house while we are away (up to 7 hours a day), and is very well mannered.  Ben knows basic commands such as sit, lay down, and shake.  He loves to be near people and he stays right by my side in the yard without a leash.  This is one of the most easy going, friendly dogs I have ever met.  Ben does not resource guard with toys, food or treats.  He is kid-tested and approved:  My 2 and 3 year old nieces crawled all over him and he just sat patiently and gave the occasional kiss on the face.   :)
Ben is going to require some TLC after his ACL surgery, he needs about 2 months to fully recover.  He must be kept as inactive as possible right away, this includes no long walks, no stairs and some physical therapy to get his leg back to normal.  If you would like more info. on this wonderful boy please contact placement!

Big Ben!
