Bentley has been waiting too long for his forever family to find him. This cutie originally came in as an owner surrender in April 2022. He was in that home since he was a puppy, with a child who would taunt and hit him. Eventually, as expected, there was an incident where he bit the child, so he made his way here.

Bentley has bounced around in and out of adoptive homes always being returned either he is too big, scared of the loud noises in the home (including yelling between family members), and unfortunately, he doesn’t want to live with any cats anymore. He knows “sit” and “paw” and is very playful with toys. He needs a home that understands he will thrive best in tranquility, calmness and engagement. He wants to be part of the family dynamic (no other pets and adults only); he also wants to not feel like he is walking on eggshells. Our big boy just wants a home to call his own. He deserves better.
