All in the Family


English Setter / Whippet

My husband and I celebrated our second year wedding anniversary searching for a rescue dog to adopt. We went to three different locations, meeting many outstanding dogs with various personalities. As the day was ending, we met "Jimmy", now known as Bentley. As soon as Bentley came out the doors of the "Friends of Animals Foundation" to meet us, David and I both knew he should be part of our family. After a hug and a pee on the foot for David, we took him for a walk around the corner. Bentley was well minded, thrilled as ever to be outdoors, and showed his admiration for us by continuing to look back at us as we walked down the street. Our walk ended at Bentley Ave, hence his name, and we returned back to the Foundation. David and I had given Bentley his name on our walk, basically sealing the deal that he was coming home with us. Bentley was delivered to us the next day. The Foundation wanted to be sure he was coming home to a place that would be dog friendly. It was as if the stork came today ~ in a way, it did! Bentley is now six months old. His mom and dad were "recession dogs"; an English Setter mix and a Whippet mix. Their owner dropped them off at the Foundation because they had lost their home and could no longer have dogs. Low and behold, mama was pregnant with nine puppies! Bentley and all of his brothers and sisters were born at the Foundation and now have all been adopted! This is the first time I have experienced rescuing a dog. After seeing how many dogs are out there without a home and a family to love, it really feels amazing we have opened ours to Bentley. Bentley has been with us for almost three weeks. He is full of spunk, very smart, and eager to learn more and more every day!
