Ben

You know, I think this one-eyed look makes me all the more handsome, don't you agree?
Birth March 2014
Sex Male
Death June 2024

A heavily maggot infested wound blinded poor Ben in his right eye, and by the time he was rescued, the maggots had almost destroyed what remained of it. However, this obedient soul put on such a brave and happy face throughout his healing journey, that we’re convinced he was destined to see the world through one eye! Ben is currently enjoying a carefree existence with us at our ABC and Rescue Center, but what a shame for him to never experience the warmth and security of a loving home.

Around April 2024, grand old man Ben had slowed down visibly, with his gait unsteady. We have been maintaining him on joint support and supplements to let him live out the rest of his life on his terms. He continued to move around at will and stayed content. On the 1st of June, his condition deteriorated and we had to make the difficult decision to put him to sleep. A brave soul, he leaves his paw prints all over our hearts. Run free, Ben!
