Bentley is a 5 yr old Blue merle collie. We believe he may be mixed with collie being the largest component. In his former life he lived outdoors but is now enjoying all the fun attributes of living indoors with a family. Bentley is ok with cats though if he could get them to run he would chase but we are working on that and he is a pretty good listener.
Bentley has the energy of a 2 yr old collie not a 5 yr old collie. Some of that may be because he is just so happy having room to run and people at his beckon call. The TV is exciting, his first jump onto the couch was exciting and running free in fenced yard was too. Meeting new people is a little scary but once Bentley make friends he is your buddy. He gets along with other dogs well. He has done extremely well on house training. He knows sit and shake paw. He comes when called. He does need a secure fenced yard. He would do very well with an obedience class and probably would even enjoy agility. Stairs are no problem for this guy. He also can stand on his hind legs longer than any collie we have seen.
Bentley is a nice boy but needs someone who has plenty of time for him. He currently weighs 60 lbs but could afford to gain a bit more weight. He accepts a crate but sleeps gated in the kitchen.
Bentley is currently being fostered in Michigan but will be moving to Ohio in the near future.
