Well, we hoped it was to be his forever home.
As I've mentioned in the past (or maybe I hadn't ??), Bentley has some fear and anxiety issues. I worked with a vet behaviorist and thru training and meds, he's made great progress.
We believed it was time for him to move on.
He went to a great home, but on the 5th day, he lashed out at the husband.
It was with heavy hearts and many tears, the couple felt that he wasn't a good match for them.
So on April 13th, I picked him back up.
Bentley is GREAT with me; never any issues.
Even though I wanted to take a little break between dogs, I couldn't turn my back on a special needs pup. There were no other options for him.
On April 18th, I signed his adoption papers.
He'll spend the rest of his days with me, where he can live out a nice quiet, stress free life, which is what he needs.
|You are THE BEST!!!|
Where is a happy dancing icon when I need it?
Congratulations, Mark and Bentley!
|Lucky boy! Hard for you I bet, but good for him |
How are you handling it?
Are you both settling?
|Brilliant- that is the best news for you both- I know you wanted a break but Bentley needed you just tooooo much. xxxx|
|I am thrilled for you and Bentley!!!! Obviously, it was meant to be. He is a very lucky boy to be where is loved and with person he loves. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU BOTH!!!|
How is Bentley doing? I’m so happy he is home with you!
|He's doing well.|
Think he has to go back on his pain meds. He has some arthritis in his back end, spondylosis in his spine, and what looks like a healed CCL injury. Sometimes he doesn't put much weight on his right rear.
So back on the pain meds. Hate to give those long term but probably don't have a choice.
But he seems happy.
|I am happy for both of you.|
|Hmmmmm, another foster failure! Good for giving Bentley a soft landing.|
