As you can see, Bentley’s page hasn’t had an update for a while. Bentley has been busy. He was adopted last month, but sadly he was returned as it wasn’t quite the right fit for him.
RAGOM does not have a foster available for Bentley right now so he is staying at a boarding facility in Blaine, Minnesota. We have awesome volunteers who visit Bentley to spend time with him and give him walks.
Bentley came to RAGOM from Turkey (where he had been abandoned to survive on his own) and learned that if he gives a little grumble, he can keep his treats or food for himself. So that means he has some resource-guarding tendencies, which was the reason for his return.
We have found that with some fun positive distraction he will often give things up on his own. Or by putting down a scattering of more appropriate treats, he will drop what he has in his mouth to pick up the treats. We are also teaching Bentley how to “trade.”
Even though he has been in boarding, he always has a smile that goes all the way to the tip of his tail.
Stay tuned for more Bentley updates and pictures, so you can fall head over heels in love with him!
