Meet Ben and Wiley, our featured pets for August!
My name is Ben, and I’ve been living with my owners since I was a stray dog that got hit by a car in front of their house eight years ago. I have a lot of medical issues, and I’m afraid of going outside, but I’m a very sweet dog. In fact, I was named after Gentle Ben the bear from the 1960s TV show. (During the winter when my coat gets really shaggy, I look kind of like a bear…) My best friend is Wiley, whom my owners adopted as a feral kitten. Like me, she is grateful to have a comfy home, and would be happy never to go outside again. Nobody knows what kind of dog I am or exactly how old I am, and I like the enigmatic allure that creates. Plus, as my owners say, “Everybody loves the Ben dog.”
