IN VERMONT** Meet handsome Bentley!!! Here is his video with his BFF Bella: http://www.youtube.com/
Bentley is 2-3 years old, approx. 39 lbs., vaccinated, and neutered. He lost his family due to mold in their home; everything that is familiar to him, a new baby and another on the way, his BFF Bella he now has to be separated from as she is wanted but he is not much to our sadness He is house trained and crate trained. He LOVES to go for hikes, walks, loves to play, loves the water, and loves attention from his humans. Bentley now much prefers a calmer environment where this is not a lot of "comings and goings". Bentley is med/high energy and is your classic 4 legged happy toddler. He needs a training regime to provide structure and discipline because he currently is so confused about his "role" in any pack. He learns quickly and given time with patience he will be your furever loyal friend. Without Bella we need to see and hope he will flourish. Older children would be preferred as he needs predictability and respect of his space. Bentley knows basic commands such as Sit, Come, and Stay. He loves to run, play fetch and needs someone that has the time and energy to provide him training on proper behavior.

Disclosure: Breed labels are often incorrect: we rarely know the genetic lineage of the dogs we rescue. Many shelters and rescues specify breeds based on appearance; however, research has shown that less than 2% of a dog’s DNA determines appearance! Passion 4 Paws does not practice the use of labels pertaining to compatibility with others or dog breed. Labels such as “dog friendly” and “child friendly” should be used with caution as they often over-simplify the personalities and behavior of dogs.
