Florida – Do you recall Gentle Ben and a puppy named Gavin?
Two homeless dogs who found comfort in one another behind the bars of a kennel run at an animal control facility?
This special pair was rescued in late August by Rugaz Rescue. Their rescue came none too soon – had the rescue not stepped forward, Gentle Ben and Gavin would be nothing more than a distant memory.
Thankfully, that wasn’t the case – not only are the two dogs safe, but they are ready and waiting for their very own forever homes.
Aside from leaving an animal control facility alive – finding a forever home is the most critical piece of a rescue dog’s puzzle.
A bit of personality information about these two adoptable dogs…
Ben is far from what his appearance suggests.
On the outside, one may assume that this rough looking dog is tough – but he is not. Instead, he is a gentle, sweet-natured soul who gets along with all people and all dogs.
From his rescue,
His special time is cuddle up and watch T.v. time at night with his foster family. He is a tough and rugged looking boy who absolutely will watch chick flicks with you all night as long as he can lay in your lap!
The endearing puppy, Gavin, is as sweet and fun-loving as he appears – in this case, you can judge a book by its cover.
According to his rescue,
GREAT kids,cats,dogs. He loves running around and being an adventurer like a good 4 month old puppy should! :) Already pretty much House/Crate trained and on basic commands… He is a super smart pup!
People frantically networked this special pair of dogs when they were at the animal control. Just because they are safe now, please don’t fail them – please share their story and help them get that final, critical piece of their puzzle.
Both dogs will be at Dogtoberfest (10 am to 2 pm at Center Court) this Saturday for anyone in the area who is interested in meeting them in person.
