Bennett came from a central valley shelter as a stray so his past is unknown. He was very scared and shy but no one came looking for him. Norsled swooped in and took him under their wing.
Bennett's past may be unknown but some of his traits tell us he did not have a very good experience. Bennett has become a lot more trusting but still hesitant being pulled by his collar. Will hang around with his owner and loves belly rubs once you earn his trust. He does not interact with other dogs much. We believe he is ready for a husky savvy home with an owner who does not push or overwhelm him, read his signals, and can continue to work with him. Bennett is very loving, loves his walks and does quite well on leash - does not usually turn to any other dogs he encounters.
Due to an unfortunate accident, in July 2021, Bennett's front leg was smashed and has been a long and expensive experience to have it heal. The bone has healed beautifully but Bennett is now fighting an infection and could really benefit from a foster or furever home.
If Bennett was on a dating show and asked his favorite past time, it would be "chasing squirrels."
Norsled's Rescue Coordinator has developed a very close relationship with Bennett and knows that for the right person this dog will be a total gem.
