I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.
Introducing our "Top Dog" Bentley, a 3-4 yr old American Bulldog, who likes to be the top dog. Bentley has been through quite an ordeal in the last several months and is now finally ready for adoption. He was found abandoned at a local rest area. When Bentley arrived we immediately noticed he was suffering from a severe skin and ear infection, possibly due to allergies. Bentley's ears were completely fused shut and had been the worst case our vet specialists had ever seen. After an $1800 ear surgery, foster care, and intensive post surgery care, Bentley's ears have recovered beautifully and he has not lost his hearing. Bentley's new owners will always need to be aware and conscientious of Bentley's allergies, skin condition, and his ears. He will always require a special diet and ear meds. This is very important and can not be taken lightly. Betley has suffered from excruciating pain for a very long time and we want to make sure this will never happen again.
Now on to the Bentley's personality. Bentley is just Mr Personality! He exuberant, happy, goofy, and is sooo affectionate. Bentley is in foster care, is crate and housetrained, lives comfortably with two other dogs, and is a smart and loyal boy. Bentley does consider himself top dog amongst the resident dogs, so it will be important that other resident dogs be comfortable with this behavior. He loves to be first for everything. Bentley also considers himself a lap dog and enjoys his couch time. As you can see Bentley can settle in just fine with home life. But while you are away from home Bentley will need to be crated because he will find ways to entertain himself such has helping himself to counter tops, trash cans, and the refridgerator. He is a food hound and this can be dangerous because of his allergies and food sensitivities. Bentley is very social and outgoing and can be an easy companion to tag along with you wherever you go. Bentley would love an active family to join in with. No younger children for Bentley only because of his large size and energetic personality. He is quite the character and makes friends easily.
This boy is ready to make himself right at home and move right in! Before inquiring about Bentley please research the Amercian Bulldog breed. This breed is not for everyone and we want to ensure everyone is well informed and we make the perfect match.

PAWS Brave Hearts is an all volunteer, no/kill animal care, adoption and education center for homeless companion animals. Most of the animals in our care come to us directly from Animal Control and police officers or through our Trap/Neuter/Adopt/ Return (TNAR) program which includes the care and management of feral colonies. We also assist animals who are about to become homeless due to the loss of a beloved guardian.
In addition to providing transitional care and adoption services, we work with local schools to educate young people about the plight of homeless animals and engage them in many of our organization's activities.
We do this work because we believe that all animals deserve respect and care, including loving, permanent homes.

In addition to weekly walk-in hours, we conduct many community-based adoption events through PAWS Around Town. These events can be found on our web-site www.paws-calais.com.
PAWS Brave Hearts offers a user-friendly adoption process. Our short application is posted on our web-site, under adoption, where it can be downloaded and emailed back to the organization. The application includes references from a 1) veterinarian (for experienced guardians), 2) a landlord (for renters) and 3) individuals who know you. When applications are complete and sent to us via email, they can be processed as quickly as we are able to speak with references.
Our process is designed to find permanent, loving homes for the animals in our care by assessing the adopter's lifestyle and preferences for a companion animal and then find the match they are seeking! We offer the highly regarded ASPCA Meet Your Match assessment to adopters.
We frequently send photos and speak with adopters at length about animals who appear to be ideal companions before they travel to our location for a meet and greet. This process has proven to be very successful for both adopters and their new best friends!
PAWS Brave Hearts serves all of Washington County. Given our close proximity to Canada, both adopters and veterinarians are from the US and Canada.
