Valerie and her girlfriend adopted Bentley (who was a year old) from Lancaster Humane League in Pennsylvania. They were told that he was hit by a car and his previous owners couldn’t afford his surgery to amputate one of his legs.Bentley 1

Bentley was adopted the day he got his stitches out and has turned Valerie’s life around… in the best way possible! He was adopted during the winter, so at first, Bentley had trouble navigating when he was outside, as he would slip on the icy ground.  Bentley’s family knew it would take some time for him to adjust to missing a leg.  He would still try to scratch himself with his missing leg, so Valerie would also give him a hand.  After a few months, his hair grew back and he was running again – one of his favorite activities!Bentley 5

Bentley hasn’t let having only three legs slow him down one bit! He now lives in Florida with his pawrents, and has so much love to give every single day!
