Bentley….oh Mr. Bentley. He came to us almost five years ago through a wonderful woman in Spring Valley that has dedicated her time to rescuing these amazing dogs from the local animal shelters. These amazing life-long friends are deemed “un-adoptable” by the local shelters because of injuries or illnesses that no one wants to spend money to repair. Most of these injuries or illnesses are correctable, and most of these animals are rescued right off of the euthanization table by this wonderful woman.
And such was the case of this little dude.
Enter Penny. Dogs are her passion. Rescuing them, her job. She is selfless and cares tremendously about each dog she adopts. And, because she visits the shelters almost daily, she is able to stop so many faithful pets from being euthanized for no reason.
This is where Bentley’s story begins.
He is taken from the shelter and immediately taken to the vet. He is poked, prodded, cleaned, vaccinated, swaddled, and sent home for some TLC. Days later, he returns to the vet for his check up and Penny finds that his leg is on the road to healing. No surgery needed!
A few more weeks go by and he is good as new. And the most heartwarming part of this story is how amazing this little guy is. He is so unbelievably loving and loyal, and he has the most amazing personality. Everyone who meets him falls in love with him. And you know by looking in his eyes the pain he has endured, and I believe he knows how truly lucky he was that Penny found him. He would have been killed for no reason…..his injuries were not that severe.
