Bentley is a 1 1/2 year old Labrador Retriever mix who was originally purchased from a homeless person when he was a small pup. As Bentley got older his owners noticed he had a difficult time with city living and unfortunately they live in a busy hub. He is very alert and on edge around the hustle and bustle of the city streets. He prefers a quite home with little comings and goings of strangers.
Bentley would do best in a home in the suburbs or in a country setting. He does well with other dogs if he is introduced properly and the other dog has the right energy level. He would also enjoy a home all his own as well. We do not know how he would be with cats, so we will not be placing him in a home with felines.
Bentley is crate trained and often goes to his crate as a quiet escape. He is very well house trained. Bentley can be a bit shy/nervous with new people and he will need an understanding owner who will allow him to adjust slowly to his new home and new family. Bentley is a lover, a cuddler, a loyal well-trained dog who will not leave his companion's side once he gains their trust.
