Bentley started off in our care when he was a puppy after being abandoned at a vet surgery following having his leg pinned after an injury. He soon managed to find a loving home but sadly his owner passed away so he has found himself back with us once again six years later.
Bentley is a loving big lump who can be incredibly needy. He is very vocal and barks a lot at everything but is always wagging his tail at the same time. He loves a cuddle and a treat but could do with less of the latter until he has shed some pounds as he is currently overweight and due to his previously pinned leg should be kept on the leaner side. Any new owner will have to stay on top of his weight to help keep him at his best.
Bentley is very strong on his lead and when he's wound up can be quite mouthy, so for this reason we are looking for an adult only home, with someone who can put in place clear boundaries for Bentley to follow.
Due to his noisy nature we do not think he would suit living in a flat as the neighbours may not appreciate his woofy ways.
We are still learning more about Bentley every day, he so far seems to be interested in other dogs, barking at them through the fence. However, we do not know how he would cope living with another dog or small animals so ideally he would be the only pet in the household. However, he could possibly live with another dog pending a successful introduction.
Bentley will require a home with a fully enclosed, dog proof garden where he can learn to know his new owner and work on his training.
