Hi! My Name Is Bentley

I'm Available
This handsome man is so cute! Due to no fault of his own he has returned to the rescue for a new forever home. He has been moved around a lot due to owner circumstances, some dominance issues, and needs a sure and safe place to bond with and rest his head at night. He is up to date on all vaccinations, had bloodwork, Bordetella shot, Rabies 3 year. He weighs 15.4 lbs. He loves car rides! Establishing who is the boss right from the beginning is important for this guy. He is like a bad Latin Lover – charming, loving, possessive, dominate, Jealous of everything else in your life! He is crate trained, potty trained. He loves to go on walks but can be aggressive if other dogs pass by (a strong correction is needed here) and he LOVES car rides. He does respond to his name. A fenced yard would be a VERY BIG plus for this guy. He has loved running around the backyard with his foster's pups.
Bentley will need a strong owner (we think a man might be his best companion) who has experience with dogs that try to dominate humans and other pups. A background in dealing and correcting these behaviors in this little guy is a must. You must let him know you disagree with his behavior. He has had behavior modification training while with HHR so we have the process started with him; he will need ongoing corrections. Ideally, he would be good with an experienced dog owner that will socialize him to other dogs or have another dog, older kids would be fine, cat would need supervised interactions.
