Meet Bentley, our Adoptable Dog of the Week from He’s a young Yorkshire Terrier who lives in Madison Heights, MI. He is already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Bentley’s Story:

Why hello there! Let me tell you a little bit about myself so that we can get to know each other better.

My name is Bentley and I am a 7 month old neutered male Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie) who came to the awesome people at NBS Animal Rescue when my previous owner wasn’t able to give me the exercise and proper care that I needed. I miss her a lot, but my foster parents are super wonderful! We go for walks every day and I my Foster Mom says that I am doing a really great job of learning to walk by her side and not pull on my leash (I’m just really excited!) and my foster Dad says that I’m a potty training expert – no accidents for me! I get along with other dogs that are friendly and playful and love to romp in my fenced yard with my foster sister a Great Dane – we find sticks together!

I am looking for a home with kids that are over 8 years old, a fenced yard to romp and play in, another playful dog would be great, and although I’ve never met a kitty cat before, my Foster Mom says it’s probably best that my new home doesn’t have any kitty’s. I’m learning how to settle in a crate when my Foster Parents are away from home, I’m good for baths, and I’m SUPER SMART! I know how to sit, lie down, shake, walk nicely on a leash, and potty outside! I love our daily walks, and my practice sessions my Foster Dad does with me every day to help me learn new tricks! I’m a sweet and playful fella who is looking for a family to love me and help me grow up into a fantastic adult dog, could it be with you?
