Meet My Newest Assistant, Bentley!

Last weekend my family and I picked up this little guy from the Humane Society. My daughter named him Bentley which suits him well. Bentley is 14 weeks old and was brought to Maryland from Kentucky where he and his brothers and sisters were going to be euthanized because of the lack of funding and support in these shelters. There are so many animals that need rescued in this country, why someone would rather pay for a dog that comes with a fancy pedigree rather than save a dog from an early demise is beyond me. The best pets I have ever had were rescues because they actually appreciate the life and love you give them and in return they work hard to please and typically are very affectionate. If you are looking to bring home a pet, PLEASE at the very least visit your local Humane Society or animal shelter and just see if you don't fall in love with a pet that will be loyal and grateful to you for years to come. Another great resource for finding adoptable pets that desperately need homes is http://www.petfinder.com/. You can define your search criteria by breed, gender, age, and location. Check it out, you will be glad you did, I know Bentley is!
