'Welcome to the club!' That's what Benny will say once he gets to know and trust you. Once you're in, he's very sweet and affectionate. Before that, he's territorial about his personal space. It's hard for him to meet strangers. He does better when he meets them outside of his room. However, he will ease up and get more comfortable as you spend time with him. He's a little picky with his doggie friends and needs to meet them in a neutral environment too.
