Bentley was surrendered by a rescue organization that was unable to take care of his physical issues. He was paralyzed in the rear of his body and unable to walk. Enter ATDR. Bentley was taken to our fabulous acupuncture vet Dr. Stiles in Houston with the hopes that he would walk again.
After only 2 acupuncture treatments Bentley was UP and had regained bowel and bladder control. His walk will probably always be a bit "wonky". He is very sweet but a little shy and Ms Pam said he gets along great with everybody but is very bonded with her and never lets anybody else pick him up or cuddle with him.
The day Mommy and the girls was visiting, he came up to Mommy and put his paws on Mommy's knees, just like I used to do. He can't jump up like the other dogs do, just like I couldn't. She picked him up and he crawled up to her shoulder, just like I used to do. Then he started nuzzling her neck, just like I used to do. Take a look at my picture with Mommy. Bentley kinda looks like me, don't ya think. Mommy started crying cause Ms Pam said she had never seen Bentley offer himself to anybody. It made Mommy feel special and she said it was almost like having me in her arms again, almost but not quite. So you see, everything has a purpose. The Big Guy up here arranged it all you know. Mommy didn't want another black and tan doxie but now she can have a Bentley fix whenever she visits Pam and Tim, just like she has a Georgie fix when she visits Aunt Judy.
Yep, Bentley is one special boy and and I am happy that Mommy loves him, just like she did me.
OK....now that I've got Mommy all teary eyed, I'm going back to the bridge and Mommy can finish the May adoptions. Can you believe it......26 adoptions in May !! I just can't stop playing with all the dogs and kitties up here and guess what? I can have all the chocolates, stuffies and knock over all the garbage cans I want here.

There you have it. May was one of ATDR's best months ever.
So far, including My Prissy, there are 14 adoptions for June and the count won't be in until around the 5th. I hear that there were are lots of long hairs and pups.
God Bless......The Mommy
