NAME: Ben Cohen

AGE/GENDER: 1 year old male
BREED: Terrier Mix

WEIGHT: 8 lbs

TEMPERAMENT: Ben is shy at first, but once he warms up he is cuddly and curious.

HOUSE TRAINING: We are still working on it! Ben will try to tell you when he needs to go out but needs some work on holding it for more than a few hours. He is still learning :0)

CRATE TRAINING:  He still needs a little work in this area as crate training is new to him, but he's getting better!

OTHER DOGS: Once he's used to other dogs, he is sweet! Otherwise, he can be a little nervous. He might hide or be noisy, but he is not aggressive. He is fostered with 2 other dogs currently and is doing great. He loves his chiweenie foster brother and loves to play.

CATS: Although not with cats currently, he has lived with cats in the past and was said to be fine. 

CHILDREN: Ben LOVES kids. He would be so happy in a home with kiddos to cuddle.  He was previously in a home with toddlers and very patient with them.


HEALTH: Ben is neutered, microchipped, flea treated, dewormed, and is current on vaccines. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as other incidental costs of care. In addition, all pets adopted from Motley Zoo come with a free 30 day trial of free pet insurance provided by 24PetWatch.

HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find Ben Cohen a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!

NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: Ben is a sweet little munchkin! His favorite things are snuggling under blankets, so if you want a dog to cuddle at night or with young ones during nap time - he is your guy. He is very well mannered for the most part, he just needs some training in regards to where he should and shouldn't go to the bathroom. He is great with all kids and other dogs once he gets to know them. He is a shy little boy but learning to trust. He needs more socialization and to explore the big wide world with someone who can give him the patience to watch him grow. Exposure to new things and new people is the key. That being said, he is not mean or aggressive in the slightest, and once he knows that a dog is friendly he is a happy camper. In less than 24 hours, Ben and our dog were running around the house and playing, although Ben would always let our dog win. 

All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and Martingale collar (or a harness, if necessary), depending on each dog's particular needs. We also send home additional flea treatment and deworming medication for your future use.


Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is a volunteer run, foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization based in Redmond, WA. Motley Zoo does not have a traditional shelter location, but instead, utilizes private foster homes which care for the animals individually, in a home environment, until a "furever" home is found.

Motley Zoo also runs "Rock Star Treatment" Dog Daycare & Training Studio in Redmond, WA which is a day-use facility and does not hold kennels of adoptable animals. The dogs there are owned animals who come to the facility while their families are at work and school so they can play and socialize in a safe environment. We dub this service our "Year-round" fundraising program which helps us support our rescue animals and the $15,000/ month vet bills we incur. This Studio location does have an Adoptable Cat Lounge, where cats may live until adoption, which is the exception to any aforementioned rules.

Please email and request an adoption application so we can get you started on the journey to finding a new, furry friend! Once you have been approved to adopt, then we can set up a meeting with the animal you have been matched with.
