    Big Ben has the most gentle soul and is a very well natured dog.

    Big Ben is a Newfoundland mixed breed, so he’s a big guy! But his size is equally matched by his gentle, laid back nature. He has honestly been one of the best natured dogs I have seen. He’s great with new people, and good with dogs, he’s been a gem with our resident dog. He hasn’t met a cat yet, or any children, but I bet he’d be good with both (although maybe a home with bigger kids as he is also big and may knock little ones over by accident). He’s been a perfect gentleman in the house, no chewing, no accidents, and has been great loose in the house while we are at work. He is still not convinced about going up or downstairs (inside though, outside there is no issue) and getting in cars is not his favourite thing. He has just learned treats are amazing and is desperate to show off how good he is, but we’re still working on a few of the basics ;) He’s also very good on a leash, walks to heel and only pulls when he sees something vertical (he LOVES peeing on vertical things). We would have kept the big guy ourselves, he’s just so awesome, but allergies are preventing us from keeping him. I know he’d be the perfect addition to any house, come and meet him and I know you’ll agree, he’s the best.

    He’s a freakin’ champion!
