Bentley is a 4 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who was a very nervous boy when he first arrived in foster. He didn’t seem to have any trust in people and can be very jumpy with loud noises and sudden movements. Since being in foster he is coming around slowly and is starting to trust his foster family and absolutely adores other dogs.
Bentley loves food and treats and will come and slowly take a treat from your hand. He is starting to show the happy cheeky side of his personality, which is wonderful to see. He is nearly there with his house training and just has the odd accident
He is still wary of strangers and is nervous of human contact but due to his love of food this is progressing nicely and positively. His new family just need to take their time and go at his pace and the trust will come.
Bentley has not met many children and would not cope with young or boisterous children as he is nervous of sudden movement and loud noise
Bentley is not cat tested
Bentley will sleep on dog bed, blanket or sofa as long as he is with another dog. He hasn’t been destructive at all and hasn’t played with toys yet but we find this will come in its own time. He hasn’t been left for more than a few hours as long as he is with another dog.
Bentley really loves his food and is currently eating soft food as he has had some teeth removed,
Bentley is not currently lead trained as he is still scared of the big wide world, however we know this will probably come in time and just needs to feel safe, gain confidence from another dog and trust his forever human.
Bentley was fine in the car on short journeys and was very brave at the vets
Bentley needs a home with another dog to show him how to be a dog. He needs a family with plenty of time and patience to help him build his trust and confidence around people and in the big wide world. Given this time and encouragement he is going to make a wonderful pet.
Bentley needs an operation to fix a hernia which will be paid for by the charity
Vaccinated, Microchipped and up to date flea and wormer
Fostered in the Cardiff area of South Wales
