Rescue's Breed or Mix: Golden Retriever Mix

Gender: Male

Pet's Age: 5 (adopted at 10 weeks of age)

Which organization did you adopt your rescue from? Angels Among Us - Atlanta

If you were to describe your rescue in three words, what would they be? Devoted, Determined, Joyful

Does your rescue have any health issues or concerns? Bentley was diagnosed in September 2016 with osteosarcoma (bone cancer), after which I quickly arranged to have his back left leg amputated at Veterinary Specialty Care. This was followed by two types of chemo; however, the cancer spread to his lungs. He is now a lucky participant in a stem cell vaccine/immunotherapy clinical trial and is a happy, loving, energetic pup every single day - teaching everyone around him to live in and for the joy of the moment!

Why should your rescue be in the 2018 Calendar? Bentley is an absolute inspiration on 3 legs - running, jumping, playing, swimming and enjoying life. He can serve to inspire other pet owners and potential pet rescuers to appreciate the things that make us all unique, and to live for each and every day!
