Benji 5 year old male Maltese

Benji is a 5 year old male Maltese who is looking for his forever home. Benji is neutered and micro-chipped. Benji is fully house-trained. Benji would be best in a home without other pets as he can be unpredictable with other animals. Benji has been around older children but would be best in an adult home as he can be reactive with young children. Benji doesn't like his legs or back end being handled and can be reactive if picked up. This dog has homechecks in progress, click details for updates.
