Dog of the Week: Bentley

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi, my name is Bentley, I am a ten-year-old fawn Chihuahua.  When I came to my foster home six weeks ago, I had lost my owner who suddenly passed away and was separated from my two friends that I lived with, so I was pretty emotional.  I have been neutered since then as well and my personality is really changing for the better.  I get along great with other dogs of all sizes and I could care less about cats (my foster home has two that are bigger than I am!).  Because I just recently got neutered my foster family is just starting to let me out into the main part of the house without gates and I am doing very well at not marking.  I know what it means when they say it’s time to “go outside” and I go out an do my business without any problem.  I sleep in a big crate at night with a really soft bed and blanket and I sleep all night long. I would love to find a family that could be my forever home.  If there are children, they would need to be older children that understand that I am a senior dog and can be gentle and patient with me.  I like to be out in the yard in the sun and I like to sniff around check things out. I walk great on a leash but for some reason I get grumpy when you take my harness off.  I am happiest when I am with humans but I don’t need to be on your lap.  I like a really soft blanket and just to know that you are there.  My teeth aren’t the best, so I prefer a mixture of soft food and small kibble.  I don’t really care for treats but I do like carrots that are broken into little tiny pieces.    I would love to become the next member of your family and my sweet little face will make you smile!

Bentley’s adoption fee is $200.00 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
