A lifetime behind bars, the dog that nobody wants

Meet Bentley, the three-year-old dog that nobody wants.

When Bentley was just a pup, he was surrendered by his owner to a shelter in Nassau County in Long Island, N.Y.

Bentley was one of a litter of pups surrendered that day, so many years ago - his siblings found homes, but he never was adopted.

Today, the now adult dog, continues to wait, and hope that at some point, someone might want to call him their own.

The following information was shared about Bentley:

Only to enjoy a brief respite of freedom at a foster for 6 months, Bentley has spent his entire life imprisoned...in a kennel. He's a dog that would thrive in a calm adult home, and a home that would provide socialization and training. Great with dogs his size and wonderful on leash, he awaits his forever home- let's not let him wait much longer.

Please take a moment to network Bentley's information - he is waiting for the chance to begin his life.
