Current Status: AvailableBentley needs
a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. Bentley needs to be retained on an extender always outside the house with tight front door/ back gate security. Bentley could live with another dog but not cats or small furries. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.Known background:
Bentley's owner moved in with her son, with Bentley, his Pattie father and a lurcher. Bentley mixed well with dogs but took against a local dog and bit thru his lead 2x and scrapped with him; Bentley came off worse. Neighbours on the estate took against and were threatening the family, so Bentley was put in a shed on an allotment as the family tried to find him an alternative life via Facebook. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place. Bentley is now neutered, chipped and fully vax'd. Bentley is kennelled in Gatwick.

To whom it may concern, I have been advised to contact yourselves with regards to a dog I have been asked to try and place before he is euthanised. Today I have made contact with around 60 of my rescue contacts. Unfortunately all are full. Here is Bentley's write up.
"MAX URGENT! I have been asked to try and place a dog under a rescue ASAP. Bentley is a black Patterdale, entire male, 4 years old. Living with heavy drinker and drug takers. Long story surrounding current circumstances. A few days back, Bentley snapped his lead and attacked a Staffy (twice he has done this now) He can be OK with some dogs(lived happily with his elderly father) but has always had a disliking of this particular dog. Police have been involved and will seize and PTS if it happens again however they are happy for me to try and place him under a rescue. A large group of local folk (from the estate Bentley was living on) are threatening to shoot him and are hounding the vulnerable owner daily. At present, Bentley has been moved onto an allotment for hiding. He is not happy here and screams constantly which has led to local residents complaining. He appears friendly enough with adults. Please do contact me if you can assist or would like more info. "
Bentley arrived today and shows good instincts with every dog he meets.
