Bentley arrived here Saturday evening with a B.O.N.E.S. representative. We are initially fostering him for 30 days as he came directly to us rather than being fostered by a B.O.N.E.S. volunteer first. We are pretty sure that we will be adopting him at the end of that time, or sooner, but it does give us a little time to get to know him before signing the agreement.
He came to us from a family that was unable to be home much and give him the attention he craves and needs. As a result of little exercise and too much food he weighs in the 40 pound range which is at least 10 pounds too much for a 2 year old 13″ beagle. Murphy weighed in the low 20’s but Bentley is much broader and larger boned, so he should be a little heavier. He’s a sweet guy- giving many kisses and following one or the other of us around. After just two days, he is settling in pretty well, getting comfortable on all the furniture and sleeping with me, of course.
Here is the first of what will be many pictures of the handsome dude. More to follow.
