PET OF THE WEEK: Benjen. Ready for adoption from the Highland Lakes SPCA

Benjen is a 6-month-old flat-coated Labrador retriever mix who loves attention — his signature move is the hug! He definitely needs yard space and someone from whom to learn the basics, but he’ll be a fantastic addition to any family lucky enough to adopt him. For more, call the Highland Lakes Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at (830) 693-0569 or visit to see other adoptable pets. Courtesy photo
