Meet Benita, a pretty and petite 3 year old black spaniel mix who came into Animal Care and Control of NYC recently as an owner surrender. Sadly, Benita was so fearful in the shelter setting that she would allow no handling and was slated for euthanasia. Now that she is safe in foster care, she has proven to be a very friendly sweet loving girl. Benita is a healthy girl who has been spayed, microchipped, is current in all shots and has tested negative for heartworm. She should do well in an adult only setting or in a home where any kids are older and somewhat dog experienced.
