Hi there! My name is Bentley and I am a 12 year old, 13 pound adorable male Shih Tzu! Sadly I lost my owner but I have adjusted wonderfully in my foster home and have really blossomed. I came into rescue with serious skin and ear infections but am feeling so much better now!

I love, love every person and dog I meet--I am the SBRET ambassador wherever I go! I absolutely love getting my belly rubbed and will be happy to roll over for you! I do have diminished vision and hearing but that does not slow me down or stop me from getting around just fine!

I will do best with someone home during the day as that is what I was accustomed to. I am working hard on my potty training and will go outside or use pee pads--I just need to be kept on a schedule as I am not so great about telling you when I need to go. I would do ok without a dog buddy if you are home a lot but I would love to have a dog friend. I will bark when left alone so a dog buddy will help with that.

An apartment may not be best for me as my barking might annoy the neighbors when you go out. I would love short walks with you and to cuddle with you in your favorite chair. I have a heart murmur which is not uncommon in little dogs but do not require any medication for it but that is something that your vet will want to continue to monitor.

Since I had such a bad skin infection it is extra important for me to be flea free and NexGard seems to be best for that. I am also still getting my special baths and medication to make sure my skin is 100 percent healed--I may need that continued in my forever home since I probably have some environmental allergies.

I am such a happy, loving little guy and am ready to find my forever family who will cherish me the rest of my life! My adoption fee is $100.
