Ms. Benson is good with men, women, and children, and other dogs and cats! She is very friendly and sweet. She has never shown any aggression and will let her owner take a bone right out of her mouth. She has cataracts in both eyes, and can no longer see out of the middle of her eyes, but does have peripheral vision. A floodlight in the yard helps her at night. She has been an active dog, but is settling down now. She's a wonderful girl and her owner is praying to find rescue for her.
