Bentley ~ in San Diego

Looking for a Home

Bentley is the sweetest little 3 year old boy looking for the sweetest family to make his life complete. This gorgeous boy has a very low key temperament that is open to most any giving family. He wants your attention and likes to stay within eye shot of you, however, he is not demanding of your time. Bentley does not take long to trust others and opens his heart to most very quickly. He has been in three or four homes within a very short time and needs the comfort and security of a forever home. In fact, if you stay home with him, he would be even happier!

He has exceptional silky ears and is a little timid of all that he hears, yet, he adapts quickly to his new environment. In his spare time, Bentley enjoys playing with plush toys which includes a little tug of war and go fetch. He is very proud to show off his toys to others.

Bentley also likes long walks. While he sniffs a little in his warm up phase of the walk, he really lets loose the rest of the way. When he returns from his long walks, he really lets the steam engine loose inside and has a blast running like a bat out of "heck" in his new home.

During all of this, Bentley remains quiet. The only time he feels the need to speak is when he has a shot at a treat. He learns new tricks quickly because he will work for food.

Bentley is neutered and is up to date on his shots. He favors his right back leg and doesn’t always put weight on it. The leg will be evaluated by a vet before he goes to his new family. He appears to like other dogs. Gentle, older children would be okay. A fenced yard and a doggie door would be nice, but Bentley could probably be fine living in a condo, too.

Bentley has been allowed to mark his environment, and he will need training to change this behavior. Other than this fixable issue, he is a darling little boy. You won't regret choosing him as your newest loving family member!

Bentley's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him. Preference will be given to local applicants. His adoption fee is $200.
