Ben is a sweet 2 year old neutered male who came to us from San Jose.  He passed all his temperament testing there, but simply ran out of time.  This little guy  (he's about 8 lbs) has a gorgeous and unusual tricolor coat.  He does well with people and is doing fine with his kennel mate as well.  He is up to date on all his shots and microchipped.  He is ready to go home and would like to go with you.  If you'd like too meet him please visit our website at and complete an application
