found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
5/23/15 - Bentley has now completed heartworm treatment and has been neutered, had his dental and is microchipped. He is now ready for a new home. He loves to play with other dogs. He is still working on his potty training. Since he was just neutered, we are optimistic that some of his marking will subside.
He has turned into quite the handsome little man since when he first arrived at his foster home. He is an awesome little guy that is ready for a last name and a permanent home.
4/6/16 - Bentley started his first phase of heartworm treatment on 3/22/16 and is handling it like a champ. His second phase will be 4/26/16 and a month after that, he will be able to be neutered, have his dental and remove his retained baby teeth and be microchipped. Then he will be ready to join his new family.
He still wears a belly band in his foster home because he will mark at times, but after his neuter, this will more than likely slack off. This baby had so much to endure when he first got here, but you would not know it by his attitude and zest for life.
3/2/16 - Bentley just went for another dressing change and the doctor has decided to keep the bandage off now to let his foot get air and finish healing. It looks so much better than when he first came in. The dermatologist appt for his nose had to be rescheduled due to some conflicts in foster mom’s schedule, but it is now set for 3/9/16. Keep checking on his progress, but he is well on his way to 100% cutie patootie.
2/15/16 - Please don't look at my pictures and feel sorry for me. I know I had a rough start, but good things come to those who wait and life is turning around for me and I am so grateful. At my first home, I pretty much lived outside 24/7. I was never given any shots, wasn't neutered, didn't eat good food and wasn't given heartworm prevention. The result of all of this is that my hair is coarse and brittle, I'm heartworm positive, underweight and it seems somehow I got into some bad chemical on my back right foot and nose which caused these dreadful chemical burns. These are getting addressed now. My foot was so burned that the bone was showing, but I am currently on two types of antibiotics and pain meds and getting weekly bandage changes. Dogtor says that it is healing, but slowly, and could take months before it is all better. The foot was more of a major concern, so we started on it first.
I have an appointment with the dermatologist on 2/24/16 were they will do testing to hopefully rule out Lupus. They are thinking my nose is the result of the chemicals as well, but just want to be 100% sure. I have already started by Doxycycline which I will take for 30 days prior to undergoing heartworm treatment. After heartworm treatment they say that I can be neutered, have a dental and take out some of my baby teeth that did not fall out on their own and be microchipped.
This seems like alot for a little fellow such as myself. But I'm up for the challenge. After what I've been through the last year of my life, all of these things are goals to making me feel better and will be a cake walk. I am so grateful to Yorkie Haven Rescue and majorly to my foster parents for taking me in with everything I came in with. I shutter to think what would have happened to me if they hadn't stepped up.
Anyway, I know it will be a while before I'm ready for adoption, but when I am, you are sure to win the lottery if you are chosen to be my new family. I get along with other dogs and actually enjoy playing two of the playful ones in my foster home. I am a good boy that loves attention and am totally in love with sleeping with blankets and comfy pillows. Remember, I lived outside. I'm currently working on my potty habits. I was used to outside being my toilet and with me not being fixed, I tend to want to mark things right now. Foster mom knows I will get the hang of it and once I'm neutered, those hormones will diminish.
Thanks for listening to my story, looking and my pictures and sending warm and loving thoughts my way. Oh, by the way, with all the vetting I will need, if you have any spare change or a dollar or two, I sure would appreciate it. I feel guilty for coming here needing so much and costing so much. Foster mom keeps telling me that I'm worth every penny. I thought so, but didn't want to brag on myself, especially the way I look currently.
