Thank you for checking back with us. I must say- benson is so so sweet. But I don't think we can actually ever call him little again. He is about 70 lbs. he doesn't like the tape measure (I know this because I just recently tried to measure his hind legs which still seem to be growing). Maybe 28"? Maybe more. Is he still growing? But everyone loves him. There has not been a single person or dog that he doesn't love.
