Pet of the Week 

HI, I'm Bentley and I'm a six month old Miniature Pinscher mix. I'm cute, cute, cute! I'm also very lovable and sweet. I'm okay with other dogs as long as I can meet them first, but because I like to play a lot, your dog will need to be okay with that. I come with free training classes that I look forward to attending, only because I want to learn how to be a good very boy. I'm a smart little guy, so it shouldn't take me to long to reach that goal. I want to be under your tree this holiday season with a big bow around my neck and a gift tag that says "Forever Yours!" Read more about him here.
