Bentley is a happy, bouncy, energetic boy. He’s got a big personality to match the huge smile on his face. Bentley is not big into boundaries or personal space – he’ll invade your heart even as he takes over your couch. This affectionate boy loves lying on top of you. When he sleeps, Bentley likes to stay connected by keeping a gentle paw on you as he snores. During the day, he brims with energy – springing up the stairs to the front door after a walk, or prancing on his front paws if he really, really wants what your eating.
Bentley’s philosophy in life is that things are always a lot more fun when you’re together with friends. Quite the social bee, Bentley is working on containing his excitement and not jumping when he greets new people. At the dog park, he does great with other dogs, though sometimes he doesn’t pay attention to where he’s racing and might knock over a smaller dog. With some additional training, he can become more careful.
At the end of the day, Bentley is a big, friendly, gentle boy who thinks he is a lap dog and will give you kisses to show his love. Who wouldn’t want a sweet, perpetually cheerful pal like Bentley at their side to spend time with? Apply today to meet Bentley!
**Bentley was graciously sponsored by Lauren Bocskocsky and Patrick McNamara for their upcoming wedding. Thank you, Lauren and Patrick!

City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties is a foster based rescue in Washington, DC. We do not have a shelter. We focus on local adoptions in DC and the metro area of Maryland and Virginia. CDR&CK has a thorough adoption process in order to find the best possible fit for each of our dogs and cats (we do not operate under a first-come, first served model).
Adoption fees // Dogs - $395 (including puppies) unless noted; $200 for senior dogs // Cats - $150 (unless otherwise noted)
Upon accepting a new cat or dog into the organization, we provide a basic vet visit that includes necessary vaccinations, disease screenings, deworming, microchips, and spay/neuter (unless specified). We do not provide a comprehensive medical exam prior to adoption. As a result, sickness, injury, and disability may exist unbeknownst to CDR&CK. City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties is not responsible for payment of any vet care, including known and unknown medical conditions once a cat or dog is adopted from us.
Cat specific: Rabies, FVRCP, Feline Leukemia vaccines. They are tested for FIV and FeLV.
Dog specific: Rabies, DHPP, Bordatella vaccines. They are tested for HW, Lyme, Ehrlichia, Anaplasmosis.
Most cats and dogs will have a house training accident in the initial days in their new home and we cannot guarantee any pet is housebroken or crate trained.
We also update our Facebook page daily with new cats and dogs.
