Meet Bentley, a very friendly and outgoing 3 year-old Hound mix male with a sweet face and a fantastic disposition. Bentley found himself homeless at a rural county dog shelter which is tough enough but he also tested positive for heartworms there making it almost impossible for him to get a second chance. Fortunately, the shelter volunteers contacted us for help with him so he made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he would be able to get the lifesaving treatment that he needed and make a fresh start with a new family. Bentley was treated for heartworms in mid-July and will be ready for adoption on Friday August 19, at the end of his 30 days of cage-rest post-heartworm treatment. We just can’t say enough good things about this dog! He has been a perfect gentleman in his foster home—excellent crate manners and possibly housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He gets along very well with other dogs of all sizes. Bentley loves attention from his human friends and has been quite well-mannered when meeting new people. He will probably need a little more work on the leash but it won’t be long before he’s walking like a pro. He gets a little excited meeting kitties so a cat-free home might be best for him. Please check out his video at the link below. Bentley weighs about 60 pounds and his adoption fee is $200. He’s neutered, current on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in Bentley. An approved application is required before we set up meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there. Bentley’s heartworm treatment cost about $450. If you’d like to make a donation to help with his care so that we can save another dog in the future, please do so on our website at www.caninelifeline.org or by sending a check to Canine Lifeline, PO Box 25742, Garfield Hts OH 44125. Thank you from Bentley and Canine Lifeline!
