Introducing the handsome Bentley!  Bentley is a goofy boy that has no idea he is not a tiny puppy.  His foster family describes Bentley as energetic, craves attention, food-focused and LOVES being near and around people.

Sweet Bentley’s heart is as big as his body. He’ll happily give you both, but the body will be more welcome when you help him complete his education!  He knows sit, down, stay and heel but needs additional training as he is easily distracted. 

Bentley is becoming more comfortable every day in his foster home and genuinely wants to please. He is a big guy who likes food --- so he instinctively grabs it. He is doing a really good job at waiting to eat his treats or dig into his dinner bowl when we say “leave it.”  He is somewhat aloof to the other dog in his foster home, is fine when left alone for short periods and friendly/quite good with children.  Bentley has not met any cats, LOVES riding in the car and  has learned to enjoy a ride in the golf cart!! 

Bentley loves exercise:  daily walks are a must, playing with a tennis ball (he’ll politely drop it at your feet for another throw) and WATER.  This boy is ready for summertime!  He will jump into a pool (if allowed) or play in the water hose. He also loves enrichments such as dog puzzles, lick pads and chews.  Lastly, Bentley is very observant and curious about all that goes on around the house.

Indoors, Bentley can be overly enthusiastic and at times be a bit of a “bull in a china shop” as he loves to be in the same area as his human companions.  If you’re not careful, Bentley will even attempt to crawl right into your lap!   Bentley is becoming more-and-more comfortable every day and responds well to consistent praise and boundaries.  

Ideal Home:  This handsome, exuberant boy needs someone who can devote the time he needs for training and exercise to get those zoomies out! Regular exercise (walks, swims, playing outside, etc), lots of stimulation and lots of love are a must.  Bentley is a big teddy bear who craves being near people and wants to be part of your daily activities.  We suspect Bentley will do best when someone is home much of the day.  Another nice dog that Bentley can play with would be good.  However, patience and additional training are musts.  With these things, Bentley is sure to flourish.  Could your family be the right match for Bentley.
