BENNY, a 2-1/2 year old Basenji mix was a rescue from a neighboring kill shelter. BENNY came in and was such a nervous little dog. He was so friendly but he was just scared. He did eventually warm up and after complete vetting, he was ready for that new home. Who will be the lucky family?

BennyJARED CALHOUN and BRITNEY CHENEY, both of OWENBORO heard about the OWENSBORO HUMANE SOCIETY and started to scroll through our list of animals. They were interested in BENNY. They currently have a 4 year old Basenji mix female. Here is the funny part that is so great. Guess what the name of their now Basenji mix is? PENNY! BENNY and PENNY! Can you believe that? Both are younger Basenji mixes! How funny!

We loved this couple instantly and they brought in great vet records and have a full fenced in yard. Nothing short here but a match made in heaven! Look at the picture below! It says it all! BENNY and PENNY are now forever friends!!!

This little guy was a on a euthanasia list not too long ago and now he has a same best friend and a momma and daddy that will love him and PENNY forever!
