For those of you who followed Mr. Bentley's very long time with us.....below is a description of just why we think that eventually ALL of our long-termers will find their family. We just have to keep looking. Bentley's foster family fell in love with him right away and they wanted to share his happy tail: "We couldn't be happier that Bentley has become a part of our family. We are a foster home and have had over 30 dogs come through our home and I've never had the urge to keep one until Bentley came around. He just captured my heart with his sweet personality and sad story. He's definitely now living the life that I'm sure he once dreamed of. He's got such great manners that you would have never guessed he'd been in the shelter for two years. He just wants to be loved. He has a huge fenced-in yard now and a sister named Bella to play with all day (she's on the left in the photo). His afternoons are filled with fetch and frisbee throwing - and of course, chasing Bella around the yard. We occasionally take him to adoption events so that he can meet his adoring fans; even though he's happily adopted, everyone still loves to see him and other people can see just how wonderful a shelter/rescue dog can be. At night you can find him curled up next to us on the couch watching tv, snuggled up as close as he can get. He eats a high-quality food and his coat is gorgeous and shiny. He's even put on a little weight. He had his teeth cleaned and the tumor on his bum removed. He even sleeps in bed with my husband, myself, and Bella (we have a king-sized bed, thank goodness!). He definitely thinks that's great as he sleeps just like a human with his head on the pillow and his legs under the covers. He's great on a leash, sits, lays, is learning other things quickly, and is the biggest lover you will ever meet. I don't know who is happier to have him here - him or us! Thanks for giving this boy a chance and for keeping him safe for so long!" It truly is happy endings like THIS that give us hope for our other long-termers. THANK YOU for rescuing, fostering, and adopting dear Bentley!
News from his rescue group: Here is part of an update email on Keel - now named Charlie - a beagle mix we rescued a few months ago. "The training is going really well. He does use the bells (to tell us he needs to go out) and he got used to them, but sometimes he just stares at them and barks - haha - but I would say they were worth it. He already knows how to sit, lay down, and stay! We did sign him up for obedience training. He had a great checkup at the vet and loves all of his doggie friends that he plays with. He does great with other dogs and even our young neice and nephew too. Things are going just great with him and we are so glad that we got him. He has such a little personality and we love it!" Thank you for rescuing him and for sharing such a wonderful update :}
After waiting THREE LOOOONG YEARS at the shelter to be adopted, Honey - along with her buddy Sebastian - were finally taken in by a wonderful rescue group. Although they worked hard to place them in a new home together, it just wasn't meant to be. Both, however, are doing very well in their new forever homes. According to her life-saving rescuer, "Honey is in a loving home, with great parents and kids where she gets a ton of love and snuggling. She takes walks, has dog friends in her building and she is living the life we all dreamed she would one day have."

After waiting THREE LOOOONG YEARS at the shelter to be adopted, Sebastian - along with his gal pal Honey - were finally taken in by a wonderful rescue group. Although they worked hard to place them in a new home together, it just wasn't meant to be. Both, however, are doing very well in their new forever homes. Sebastian has been renamed Newman. You can read more about Newman's happy landing by going to http://nnedr.org/Alumni.html. Such a handsome guy he is! It truly looks like his long wait was well worth it.
