Pet of the Week - Benny Workman-01

Benny Workman – Flat Coated Retriever

How did you obtain your pet?

We rescued Benny at 4 months old from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. He originally hails from the Martinsville, VA SPCA.

How old is your pet?

Benny will be 2 years young in January.

What is your pet’s favorite pastime?

Benny loves spending time in the Outer Banks – swimming in the waves, chasing sea gulls, digging holes and covering his wet nose in sand.

What is your pet’s favorite toy?

Skinneeez brand stuffingless chicken.

What is your favorite thing about your pet?

Benny, like all dogs, loves and trusts unconditionally. From the day we got him, Benny has been a lap dog that loves human interaction. Benny hasn’t met a dog or human he doesn’t love. He’s gentle (and patient) with kids and the elderly, but knows how to rough-house with his dad.

If your pet had a super power, what would it be?

Benny wishes he could fly so he could catch up to those pesky birds always taunting him.

Why does your pet love Caring Hands Animal Hospital?

He loves the attention he gets as soon as we walk in the door! Oh and he loves that the jar of treats is within a paws-reach.
