About Bentley

Adoption Fee: $35
Shih Tzu / Maltese
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Bentley is a 6 year old Malshi (Maltese/Shitzu) who has been with us since he was 9 weeks. He has the loyalty of a Shih Tzu the happy playfulness of a Maltese. He acts more youthful than his age. He loves to chase a ball, or anything you will throw for him. He likes to sleep right beside his human at night and does not shed. We love him very much and are looking for a home that can give him more time and affection. Also, he is not getting along well with our large dog and can get jealous and protective. Bentley tends to warm up slowly. He needs to feel safe, and has to be in the right mood to be picked up or petted. Because of this, a home with young children would not be a good fit. He loves to play with our cat (not for adoption). In the past he has gotten along well with other dogs his size who have an easygoing personality. He also enjoys going in and out to the fenced in backyard, but spends most of his time inside. (He needs a home with a fenced in yard. He does not dig, but is 7 to 8 pounds and small enough to get out of a fence with holes). As part of his breed, he has a high - pitched bark. We feel Bentley would do best with someone who has lots of love to give, needs a companion, and is mostly at home, as he thrives on being with his humans. He likes things on his own terms, but often will jump up in your lap and snuggle, or lie right beside you. Did I say he loves to be with his humans? If you're looking for a loyal friend, Bentley has that quality! Serious inquiries only. Preferably someone who knows this breed and has experience with dogs. Texting preferred. Thanks!
