Benny is a purebred Black Mouth Cur. He was named after Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez -- the most talented baseball player on the team in The Sandlot. Benny was a pandemic puppy, and came to Virginia Beach from a beautiful farm in NC, where his parents are very accomplished hunting dogs. Benny doesn't do any official hunting, but since he's a working dog, he does have various "jobs" around the house. Two of his favorites are "cleaning the kitchen" (where he closes all the kitchen cabinets) and "find it" (where he searches for scented objects or food all over the house). He and his owner still have not come to an agreement about whether or not it is his job to "protect" the entire 3-mile radius of "his realm" around their house.
Benny is glad to be a patient of Birdneck Animal Hospital, where he often finds himself in the care of the staff here due to his sensitive stomach and overly cautious owner. ;) While he's a little wary of strangers, Benny is an overall adaptable and happy dog, and he's very honored to have been chosen as the Noble Pet of the Month!
