 BOCA RATON — ‘Ello, mate!  Benny’s the name and boy am I glad to see you!  I’m a nice little gent you’ll want to ask to meet. 

 I’m an Australian shepherd, a year and a half old, neutered male weighing about 40 pounds.

 I’ve got a lot going for me so I won’t be here long.  I’m housebroken, a great companion for kids, cats, and other dogs, and I even know how to ‘sit’ for you if you ask. 

 I don’t want to spend my whole summer here at Tri County, so adopt me and then ‘put another shrimp on the barbie’ and let’s BOND!

 I’m available for adoption at Tri-County Humane Society, a no-kill animal shelter located at 21287 Boca Rio Road in Boca Raton. The shelter is open for adoptions Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Adoption fees for companion animals are $110 and up.

Animals are heartworm-tested and up-to-date on vaccinations. 

Included in the adoption fee is one year of free office visits to
Regency Veterinary Clinic.
