Benson is a one-year old chihuahua mix and is currently up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society.

This week’s featured pet is a playful one-year-old chihuahua mix named Benson who is up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society.

“He’s current on all his vaccines, he’s crate trained and house trained,” ECHS executive director Diane McCoy said. “Benson is good with other dogs, cats and kids.”

When Benson was let out of his kennel it wasn’t hard to see that he enjoys exploring.

“He likes to play fetch, but also likes to cuddle,” McCoy said. “When you walk with him you’re going to run because he loves to run around.”

Benson is new to the ECHS coming in on Dec. 2 and was an owner-surrender.

“They were moving and couldn’t take him with them,” McCoy said. “He loves to play outside, but he needs to primarily be inside because he’s a little guy.”
