Apply to Adopt Bento

Bento is a sweet little Chi that had a very bad start in life. When we first rescued him he was so sensitive to touch and just needed some time with people and a little decompressing to understand that he is safe now.

Bento now warms up quickly to his caretakers and enjoys playing with soft toys, and snuggling when he’s done. If he’s put to bed earlier, with dinner (around 8pm) he will eat and quietly go to sleep, but otherwise he does not like being “put away” and will cry until he tires himself out (which can take 5 to 30 minutes).

Bento likes to give kisses and be held. He is interested in playing with other dogs and will bark at them if they ignore him. Bento will let you know (ahem, puppy tantrum) if he wants your attention or something he is not getting, but his fosters are working on redirecting to toys.

When meeting strangers in the home he will alarm bark until properly introduced and can start off shy but will warm up and give kisses quickly to anyone who is gentle with him.

Bento will not be placed in a home with children under any circumstances.

Puppies do not qualify for a trial adoption period - if you'd like to adopt, please apply.


If you are interested to know if the puppy is still available- we advise you to go ahead and apply. Our inbox gets flooded with puppy requests so it takes us longer to respond. By applying, this will free us up to review your application. We thank you for your patience.
