We were a one-dog family looking for a friend for our 5 year old shih tzu and a new family member to love and spoil!  We spotted Emmit (now known as Bentley) on the HSCI website on Tuesday night and Brad and I came to meet him the very next day!  We knew he was too cute to last long and while a puppy wasn't what we were originally looking for, we knew he was the one for us the minute we saw him!  The fact that he came from a wonderful foster home (Stephanie) helped solidify our decision to make him ours.

Bentley has been with us less than a week but has found a place in all of our hearts!  Our 5 year old shih tzu was going to be the one to worry about as he'd been the king of the castle for several years now. However, when he also warmed up to Bentley at the HSCI office when we met again later that night, we knew this was a very good sign. Bentley is such a spunky little guy - he's made such an impression on us so quickly. He is such a polite little boy, sitting for you without asking as if to tell you he's ready for you whenever you want to reach down and pet his little head. He's only nine weeks old and knows "sit", "down", and we just mastered "come" this past weekend!  He's even good at giving you a "high five"!  He loves to snuggle in your arms and has this cute little snore when he's really comfy.

We can't say enough about how much we love our new family member and how he's already livened up our house in the past four days!  Thank you to Stephanie, and HSCI for finding our newest little boy for us!  We are looking forward to watching him grow to find out what our "mix" puppy turns into!!
