Day 672: Fursday Finkin of Franklin...

Please allow me to introduce this Special Fellow. He is the Ben Franklin, a member of the GRRH Family... wif the very special circumstances! And he needs your help!!!
Ben is about 8-9 monfs old, and our best guess is that he is a Dachshund/ Jack Russell mix.

Golden Retriever Rescue of Houston brought Ben in as a puppy wif his "mom" and six siblins... at about 4 weeks old. The "mom" was a pure breed Golden Retriever, and the puppies were nursin on her in the shelter. GRRH rescued the Mom and pups, recognizin (1) story was sketchy, (2) pups were GR mix or perhaps NOT and (3) their survival relied on their continued attachment to her, for nurishment. It was a no-brainer... but noone was surprised when the seven puppies showed not a single sign of Golden...

Though our Mission is to rescue the Golden Retriever, our hearts align with any and every dog in need. Our commitment is the same for Ben, but our challenge is different... because most most people who seek to adopt a dog frew GRRH are lookin for a Golden Retriver, and that has meant that a wonderful young fellow, like Ben, has been overlooked by our potential adopters.
Ben is a super smart boy, and he is well behaved!

He's done very well in a home, but now he is livin in Pet Paradise Resort. He's made the best of the transition, but it's SO not the best place for this Sweet Boy. He wants to be a part of a family, in his own FOREVER home.

Ben is a super sweet boy, and he has his very own advocate wif GRRH. She has lovingly cared for and trained this sweet boy. Ben is a quick learner and easily trained. He knows sit, down, roll over, wait, stay and shake. He is eager for new challenges... and is currently takin swimmin lessons! Why, here is the Sweet Boy in action...

GRRH is actively lookin for the very Special and Forever Home for Mister Ben Franklin.... but we need your help!!! 

PLEASE to help us connect with other rescue organizations to get Ben's story and photos out there! He's a very special boy, and while his future is not at risk, he deserves SO MUCH BETTER circumstances and much better opportunities! He deserves the VERY BEST chance for a Forever Family!
It's been an emotional week or two for me and the Mom, but we re-group, and gosh... We so want to help the Ben Franklin.

Won't you? Please forward this post to any potential adopters or rescue groups you fink might help... and please send any suggestions you might have! Our total goal is to help the Ben!!!
In my home, we have tendency to fink ... "It all about the Luke.. (and ok, also all about the Bleu, of course)"...
But really and truly... It is not.

It is really and truly all about those who are still in much need of Food. Medical Care. Care. Love. Home. Forever.

Please leave a comment here or email us at We are open to any and all opportunities and ideas for Ben's ultimate Forever.  Our goal for Ben is to find his Forever match... and no less. Any fing you can do to help us help him, I FANK YOU!!!!

As you may know, we've been involved with the Golden Retriever rescue for more than 10 years. I know what can be standing in Ben's way of finding a home--All rescues face this, and this is in part how I ended up keeping our Wheaten Terrier who I was fostering for Old English Sheepdog rescue--Anyway, I will certainly pass it on, and hope that a family will open their hearts and home to this sweet little boy!!!
