Bentley is a wonderful guy looking for a senior couple or individual. He came into GRRNT after his owners took him to a shelter because they were moving into a nursing a home. Bentley has adjusted well to his foster home, he is low maintenance and looks forward to his daily walk and required petting. He is not on any medication other than his daily Dasequin and monthly Heartgard and Nexgard. He has wonderful house manners and gets along great with his foster dogs and cat. He is asking that his adopted home be his last move in his senior years. Can you make that happen?
With deep sadness we said goodbye to Bentley today. He underwent surgery last week to remove an intestinal blockage. The surgery itself went well and the blockage was removed, but Bentley did not recover well after surgery, and his foster mom and vet felt his quality of life would not improve. This grand boy gave a lot of love and was very much adored by the GRRNT family. We give our deepest heartfelt thanks to his foster mom for her loving care over the last year. Godspeed good boy.
GRRNT has made the decision that with Bentley's advancing age the best thing for him is to remain in his current foster home where he is content and comfortable. He has now entered our Permanent Foster program, and GRRNT will assure his well being and happiness for the rest of his life.
Bentley's elbow has healed and he’s ready for a forever home.
His elbow is nearly healed. Another 30 days and he should be completely healed.
Bentley had a vet visit this past Saturday to recheck his elbow. It is close to being healed up. He goes back in two weeks to see how it's doing at that point.

Guess who is down from 92 lbs. to 79 lbs? Mr. Bentley! He still has a way to go as the vets would like to see him around 70 lbs. With progress like this, we know he will hit his goals and be so much healthier when he goes to his new forever home.

Bentley is doing well in his foster home. He has lost a lot of weight and his elbow, while healing a bit slow, is on the mend. Overall, he is really doing well. We hope to have new pictures to show his trimmed up physique soon!
