Bentley is an owner surrender to GRRNT due to a change in circumstances. He is brand new to GRRNT, and just settling into his foster home. We will have information about Bentley after his foster family has time to get to know him.


PROFILE

Bentley is a young, lively, very high energy puppy who is looking for a family who can give him positive outlets for all that puppy exuberance. He will need another young, playful dog in his home that can match his energy level. He won’t be placed in a home with a senior dog, as we have found he is more spirited than even the 4 year old dog in his foster home can keep up with. He would really enjoy playing with kids, but they will need to be older kids, middle school age and up would be ideal. He will do best in a home where someone is there with him a good part of the time. A family with a full time working schedule will not be a match for Bentley.

Bentley needs one on one attention and a lot of supervision. Left to his own devices he will find things to entertain himself that his human family members might not enjoy as much as he does, like picking up laundry, shoes, personal items, cardboard, or anything else that he can fit into his mouth. He can be redirected to dog toys and chew bones, but temptation can easily lead him to other items if he is not watched. He LOVES toys, but he will often go from playing with them to eating/tearing them apart in an instant. Some sturdy toys for strong chewers will be a good idea. Bentley is house trained and crate trained. He is usually very excited to be out of the crate, and he gets what we call “the zoomies”, where he races around the house, and sometimes knocks things over. Like any young dog, Bentley needs regular exercise, and “puppy proofing” his home will be wise! 

Bentley will benefit from obedience training, and learning some house manners. In his previous home he was apparently allowed to sleep in the bed, get on all furniture, and jump up and greet people. He has also done some counter surfing and rewarded himself with a donut and hot dog! His foster dad is working on teaching him some basic manners, and he is a willing pupil.

Bentley will really blossom with a family that will continue working on his manners, invest in his obedience training, and teach him how to be the family companion he is meant to be.  Bentley is ready for a lifelong, loving, bond with his very own forever family.
