Watch Benny The Rescue Dog Ice Skate


Benny the Lab is the real deal in the rink. Buzz60’s Tony Spitz has the details.

A Las Vegas dog is finding an unusual way to beat the heat.

Benny the rescue pooch loves to skate, and as far as his owner Cheryl Del Sangro knows, he is the only canine who has mastered ice skating.

A retired professional ice skater herself, Del Sangro turned her attention to Benny’s talents after adopting the dog.

“He had spent six months in a kill shelter in Utah and eventually was put on the euthanasia list. A local Las Vegas rescue had pulled him on his last day and transported him to Las Vegas but nobody had put in to adopt him,” Del Sangro tells PEOPLE. “But as soon as I saw his eyes in the photo I knew he was meant for me. I filled out the forms, finally got to meet him and it was instant love.”
