Instagram is a wonderful place... it led me to meet the wonderful owners of Benedict Doxies and adopt my little babe, Hopper formally known as Ace. I followed the Benedict Doxie Family for about a year and a half on social media and saw what wonderful pup parents they were. I knew after seeing how they loved and cared for their own dogs that it would translate into their puppies.
Adopting a puppy can be a scary thing because you want to know the dog parents and puppies came from a loving and kind home. The Benedict Doxie social media accounts are very active and allowed me to see how they are raised which was reassuring. Additionally, they offered to let me visit the puppies a few weeks prior to taking him home. This gave me the opportunity to bond, hold and see him with his littermates. This provided me even more confidence he was coming from a loving home. The puppies are raised in the middle of their beautiful home in the kitchen which gets them acclimated to noise, light and people prior to arriving in their furever homes. They also have other doxies running around keeping a watchful eye on the homefront, which is adorable (and such a doxie thing to do!) Hopper came home with some goodies that included toys and a sample bag of recommended food.
Hopper is a wonderful dog and I can't say thank you enough to Cassie and Carrie. These girls love their dogs and their new families. They take the extra time to post progress shots and candid pictures and videos that help get you through the 8-week waiting period. I was very nervous about introducing Hopper to my 4 year old, Frankie. They both gave me guidance and reassurance that it would be ok and how to best approach the situation. Those boys are now two peas in a pod!
We continue to stay connected to this day and even had a doggy-playdate in December. We are looking forward to planning the next one! If you are looking for a happy, healthy and adorable puppy - look no further!
