Adopt Me


We are no longer accepting applications for Benji.

Hi, I'm Benji, and I'm about 7 years old and 22 lbs (I am not overweight). Other than being larger than your average Pug, I'm a "textbook" Pug: happy and silly and affectionate and curious and lively and goofy. Don't let my age fool you! Since I just got neutered when Hopalong took me into their program, we anticipate I'll be more appropriately friendly with other dogs - I just couldn't help myself: all I wanted to do was hump my foster brother. I'm a really nice dog, I'm just a little overwhelmed with hormones, apparently. I am housetrained and I sleep through the night. I bond quickly. I am a messy, but enthusiastic, eater. And I snort. I'll do best in a home with adults and well-behaved kids, and someone who will be around a lot of the time (I'm not much of a napper). And I hope my forever home has carpets or rugs because when I'm excited and happy, I can't get my grip on hard floors and I slide all over!

(If you aren't familiar with caring for a Pug, please do some research to understand their special needs including - but not limited to - harnesses and collars, cleaning face folds, exercising with care especially in the heat, etc.)

Benji loves his foster doggie friend and wouldn't mind having company, but he also loves all the attention! He is such a great guy!
