Meet Bentley, 11-years-old Vote for this post

Bentley came into my life on Tuesday 8/16/16. The first photo was written on Wednesday 8/17/16 & describes how Bentley came to live with me. The second photo is of Bentley.

He has adjusted very well here, and I attribute a lot of that to my dog, Darcy. I don't think he would have transitioned as quickly without her here. He is doing wonderfully at this time.

Here is Bentley! I had no idea he would only be 4 pounds. The tiniest dog I ever saw. And a huge terrier personality is coming forth as he recovers from his stress. He is going to be a full-on terrier beast! I love that!

Oh my stars, such a precious little face! You have to think that this was meant to be--whether it was you finding Bentley or him being dropped into your life. Either way, I pray that being with you and Darcy will calm him down and let him adjust to being in another loving home.
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

He's one cute little guy, congratulations. Nice to see someone taking on a senior dog. 

What breed is Darcy?

Little Darcy is a Maltese. A neighbor saw her being dumped in this area in 03/2015. Some of my elderly neighbor's rescued her pretty quickly after that.

That was nice of them to save her, how old is she? What does she think of Bentley?

I'm so glad that you got him, I think it was meant to be.  I hope as he becomes comfortable in your home and in a less stressful environment that he won't need meds any longer.  Having a sister that can help him adjust will be huge for him.  Congrats.

I've had Bentley since Tuesday... Today is Sunday. He has come a very long way, thanks to Darcy. He is now eating twice per day; has had solid stools (though some were soft) and no diarrhea at all at this point. He sleeps for most of the night. And he recently began playing chase with Darcy.

His Mommy-Mel (prior owner) came to visit him last night. She just loves him, and loves how happy he is here. Bentley really, really loves her. He went between giving her kisses, then running to give me kisses. Mommy-Mel said that he did not take to people like he did to me... He didn't usually give others kisses.

I could see what appeared to be a big smile on Bentley's face because she was here. I'm so glad he is here. So far he is thriving. I really think (as does Mel-Mom... Who brought it up) that Bentley could smell the scent of his Daddy in the other house... And was very stressed out about not seeing him anymore. He is slowly changing into a playful, stress-free little guy.

Another perfect match. Dogs seem to pick up on stress real easy. His previous owner knows he has a great forever home. it is nice she can visit and reassure him.

Congratulations!!!!!!

Love Sir William ^--^ and Allen

Congratulations to you and Bentley, and thank you for adopting a senior pup!  My Westie girl, Sadie Mae (best dog ever!) was 14 when we got her, and we never once regretted it.  They have so much love left to give.
