Benny is an adorable little Chihuahua.  He is a little over a year old, and he has been neutered and fully vaccinated.  By some terrible twist of fate, this little angel found himself at Animal Control.  Luckily, CCHS found out about him and was able to rescue him before he could be destroyed.  Benny is a great little dog; not at all a typical Chihuahua.  He is very friendly, and he even does well with cats and other dogs.  Due to his extremely small size, Benny will need a home with no small children.  For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at 770/471-9436.  Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
