Bentley is a purebred Dutch Shepherd (Read Here),
surprisingly, she is also a 3 year old rescue (Sep 2020).
Her story starts, for as far back as we all can know, in a gas station in the rain at 2 years old. She was cold and hungry, and trying to get into anyone's car that would leave the door open long enough.
She was lost and confused, she had no idea what was going on. She was picked up and taken home by a couple who dried her off, fed her and got in touch with the local rescue - and became foster parents.
Thankfully, the local rescue was able to attend to her medical needs; allowing for the foster family to not concern about those bills on a dog they did not plan on. They were able to nurse her back to emotional health, while the rescue took care of the physical.
Because of her age, and unknown background, she navigated meeting new people on her 9 month journey to coming home with us - and enjoying a healthy and happy home.
Why is giving back, as part of our business plan?
It hits home for us and we know that there are a lot of great dogs out there like Bentley needing to find that permanent home. Every little bit we can assist with helps that foster family keep them safe even longer, and not be desperate to get them out, means that they are even closer to finding that right family and not just the next family.
