My name is Ben and I am a very handsome boy if I do say so myself. I know that all Borzoi’s think that, but If you are looking for a big young good looking boy to love you – I am the one! I do not like to be far from my hooman if you are outside I am outside, if you are inside so am I. Although some people think I am rather large, I think I can fit on your lap if you will let me try.
I am only 2 years old, so I have lots to learn, but I already know how to walk on a leash, go to my crate and to let you know when it is time to go outside to take care of business. Mom says I am a work in progress, but c’mon who isn’t? Mom and I have been working EVERY day on my house manners, I am getting better but not 100% reliable...my other life had no need for that, and it's been hard for me to remember all these American rules! I promise I will try VERY VERY hard to be a good boy if you can be patient, and help me remember my manners. I do have lots of energy, my foster Mom calls me Jamin, because I like to play so much. Like lots of my fellow Borzoi I do have a very strong prey drive, so I will need to go to a home without any small critters. It’s just the way I am wired, I can’t help myself – I am a big boy at 95 pounds, so I would REALLY appreciate a good sized girlie to pal around with! I am not too fond of other males, I do love the ladies though and want to have my harem all to myself. However, I love people, both men and women without discrimination and I LOVE kids.
I have all my vaccinations, and I am microchipped and neutered – I am heartworm positive but that is being treated at NBRF’s expense. I need eye drops every day and probably will for the rest of my life, I don't much care for that action, but I'm getting MUCH better at sitting still for it. I will have my ongoing treatment protocol and meds with me when I move in. I can’t wait to meet you, I really want a furever person to call my own. Right now I am living in Ohio so if you are in that area or want to take a road trip make sure you let VickiNBRF@gmail.com, SharonNBRF@gmail, and/or KateNBRF@gmail.com know and put in an application for me at http://www.nbrf.org/
