Dog of the Week: Big Ben

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi everyone, I’m Big Ben!  I’m around 2 years old and a very active boy. I came all the way from Texas after Hurricane Harvey and I’m excited to be living in the Midwest! When I got to Iowa I did have to go through a mild treatment for heart worm and a surgery on my ACL. I’m good as new now and ready to find my forever family! I’m looking for a family preferably with some big dog experience. My friends at Last Hope guess me to be a mix of Cane Corso and Mastiff. I also need to be the only pet in the house. I’m not too fond of other dogs and cats. A family with children over 12 would be best too as I can be a bit overprotective of my toys.  I need someone that can keep me active with lots of exercise and play time. I’m still young so I’d love a family who will teach me my basic commands and work with me on leash training. I really enjoy walks but since I’m a big guy I do pull a little, but with your help I know I can master it!

Big Ben’s adoption fee is $250 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, microchip, and a free obedience class. If you’re interested in Big Ben please complete an application HERE or email
