This little puppy is Bentley. Last summer I rescued Bentley from a puppy mill auction when he was 3 months old. A rescue volunteer named Krystina fostered him for 2 months, and then he was adopted. The entire time that she fostered him Krystina begged and pleaded with her parents to let her adopt Bentley. She was totally devoted and in love with the little guy. Unfortunately, her parents said no, and Bentley was adopted by another family.
Fast forward and now Bentley is 10 months old, and I received an email from Bentley's adoptive family, saying that they were returning him to the rescue. According to them, he was not bonding with their family, and they felt like it would be best if they returned him. Little did they know that this would ultimately be the very best choice for Bentley.
As soon as Bentley's original foster mom found out that he was back in rescue, she requested an adoption application. She wasn't letting him slip through her fingers again. And this time her parents were on board with her adopting him. It was an amazing reunion when Bentley and Krystina got to see each other again after all these months!
Here's to second chances and the miracles they bring to those who grab onto them and make them count!
