About Benny and June

  • Status: Adopted!
  • Species: Dog
  • Color: Black and Tan
  • Current Age: 3 Years 6 Months (best estimate)

Benny is a very affectionate and soft hearted little boy.  He wants everyone to love him and will give everyone kisses if they will let him.  Benny loves to sit on laps, and he loves to play too.  He, of course, always wants the toy June has!  Benny has quickly found a place in our hearts.

Benny and June came to us in February of 2012. We thought they had pneumonia, so we treated them for that, but they never got better and stayed healthy. Dr. Heidi and Dr. Paul did some additional testing, and we have discovered the puppies have Primary Ciliary Dyskenesis or PCD.

Through the love and support of SO many people, but especially their foster mom and dad, Benny and June have grown into amazing little dachshunds who are . . . ADOPTABLE!  That's right!  Adoptable!  These two little loves have finally reached that milestone!

And while we know it will take a very special family to care for them and keep them healthy (as Benny and June require daily nebulizer treatments 3 to 4 times a day and will be on medication the rest of their lives, we also know their forever family is out there.

Benny and June are a bonded pair that must stay together.  More importantly, they are also happy, playful dachsies who love to give kisses, and be held, and do all the things other dachshunds do - they just need a little something special to help keep them that way.  Maybe that's you?
