Benton Dog and Cat Shelter, Pet of the Month

Meet Jed, a long term resident at the Claremont Road Shelter in Newcastle

Jed is a gorgeous brindle Staffordshire bull terrier cross who arrived at the Benton North Farm shelter in October 2014. He is approximately 6 years old. Jed is a very loving and friendly boy who can be vocal at times but this is only to get attention. He enjoys his food and treats and responds to basic commands. Jed loves his daily walks but can pull when on the lead so some basic training will be beneficial. He is now at their Claremont Road Shelter.
