The dog was wearing a collar, and even though he could barely lift his head, Bentley was so mild-mannered and sweet that rescue workers believed he must’ve had a loving family at some point in his life.
“He’s very sweet, and he was eager to meet people,” Rinaldi said. “It sounds kinda funny, but he was thankful to be rescued, and so thankful to be out of that hole.”
He was put on fluids and a slow feeding schedule so as to not overwhelm his system, and began to gain weight right off the bat. “He just needed to eat, and there was nothing in that basement, except for wood scraps that he was chewing on,” Rinaldi noted.
