Hi there, I’m Benna. Whether we’re meeting here for the first time, or we’ve already met, can I just say… it is REALLY nice to meet you! As you may be able to tell by my warm welcome, I am APS-FH’s newest Lobby Dog! I’m very excited about this title, and I think I’m doing a good job at it because the humans are always smiling around me, and telling me that “I’m a very good girl”.

As an APS-FH Lobby Dog I have a very important job that includes such daily tasks as: greeting staff and volunteers as they first arrive in the morning (and all throughout the day), barking a friendly hello to everyone who comes through our lobby doors during business hours, keeping the staff company as they work, and kindly encouraging people to pet me all throughout the day.

Aside from being my place of “employment”, APS-FH is my temporary home until I get adopted. Although I’ve only just arrived a few weeks ago, I’ve known about the shelter for years. That’s because my person would regularly visit the staff and regale them with so many good stories, a lot of which included me! My person just passed recently, and although I am mourning his loss, I am finding peace being in a place where, and around people with whom, my person would visit. Now, this will be the lobby I walk out of with my new person (whenever they arrive), onwards to my next chapter. Wish me luck, and I hope you’ll come back and see us at APS-FH real soon!
