All about Bentley

This sweet fellow arrived in our care on February 21 and has settled nicely into his foster home.  We are told he is a Newf/Mastiff/Bernese Mountain Dog mix.  Whatever he is, he's a cutie!

Bentley has nice house manners and is a gentle, friendly boy.  He is sweet and affectionate, calm and well mannered and an all-around great catch.  He enjoys meeting new people and getting loads of love!

He greets other dogs nicely, although does not who interest in spending time with other dogs and would prefer that dogs leave him alone.  He would be delighted to be the only dog in his family!

He does become excited on-leash when he sees a dog (he is excited to greet them) but his foster family have been working on this and he has been doing very well.  His leash manners have really come along nicely.  Good boy Bentley! 

Bentley and his brother were turned over to a shelter when their owner passed away.  We were asked by the shelter to bring the boys into our care......how could we say no to these faces?


Bentley has been neutered and brought up to date on vaccines. He has some minor skiin issues which we have been working to address and he has shown great improvement.
