- Bentley is a 9 year, 5 mo. old Yorkshire Terrier in New York, NY
A very loving - yet shy at first - Yorkshire Terrier that is in need of a surrogate "parent(s)" while his parents are out of town. Bentley is fully potty trained and we have never seen him have an accident. He loves to cuddle and be held when he is tired, otherwise he is full of energy and wants to play or go on a long walk. We take him on a lot of adventures, long hikes, and he loves beaches. He is very adaptable and will walk with you as long as you want to be out. Once he knows you, he will love you for life. He is very smart, but is also stubborn and likes to see if he can push boundaries with you. Bentley wasn't socialized properly as a puppy, so we'd ask for his sitter to not take him to off-leash dog parks. He's not aggressive in the least, just timid. (He'll hide behind your legs if he feels scared.) He has been trampled a few times by large dogs and chased by little dogs, which has only caused socializing to be more difficult. We do take him to Crissy Field and Carmel often, and he is off-leash with us; he just ignores other dogs. He also has bad allergies to all things nature ... we have tired allergy shots three times (did not work at all) and everything one could imagine, with no help. We do keep him on food restrictions; he can only have certain treats, vegetables, and fruits (his favorites are: cucumber, lettuce, and banana). My husband and I travel often for pleasure and need someone that is loving and responsible for Bentley.

- Gets along with children: No
He prefers not to play with kids. The screaming scares him.
- Gets along with other dogs: No
I hate to say "no" because he does fine one-on-one. But he definitely gets freaked out around multiple dogs and is afraid of being chased and trampled, again.

He loves cats... we believe he thinks he is a cat.
