Almost two months after two dozen dogs were recovered from a Randolph home and put up for adoption, one final dog is still looking for a forever home.

Benjamin, a 2-year-old pitbull, was one of the 24 dogs rescued on Aug. 4 from a Randolph home after they were discovered to be living in serious unsanitary conditions without food or water, according to the Randolph Police Department. He is currently up for adoption through the Animal Rescue League of Boston.

According to his profile, Benjamin is a “big, active goofball” and loves to play fetch. The ARL is specifically looking for a home with no other animals or young kids because he “gets jumpy when he’s excited.”

“If you’ve got tennis balls and treats galore, he will be your very best friend!” the ARL wrote on his profile. “He loves getting to run around in our play yard and would really enjoy having a secure fenced in yard of his own.”

They also wrote that while Benjamin knows his basic cues, adopters will need to continue training and using positive reinforcement with him, such as leash manners.

“When Benjamin arrived at ARL, staff noted that while extremely friendly, the young dog lacked socialization, focus, and basic manners,” said ARL spokesman Mike DeFina. “He was excitable, jumpy, mouthy, and reactive to walking on a leash.”

Since then, ARL staff have worked with Benjamin extensively to improve his manners, according to the statement.

“He has made tremendous strides maintaining focus and working on his manners,” DeFina said.

All of the dogs recovered from the Randolph home were brought to the Dedham branch of the ARL. The other 23 dogs have since been adopted over the past two months.

“I’m so happy to see that almost all of the dogs in this case have been adopted and are in homes where they will receive the care and love they need,” Chief Anthony Marag of the Randolph Police Department said. “Hopefully Benjamin finds his forever home soon and we can [have] a fully happy ending in this case.”
