Caring Boyfriend Works All Weekend To Give Girlfriend's Rescue Dog Backyard He Deserves
KaTarra Taylor was Bentley's fifth foster mom. The rescue dog had behavioral issues that plagued him for years. Fortunately, Bentley found a forever home a few years back in Colorado Springs, Colorado with Taylor. Taylor's boyfriend saw how special the dog was, despite his troubles, and built him his own backyard so he would have an outdoor space to chill out in.
When Taylor discovered Bentley, he didn’t have much stability in his life. Although he was only four years old, he had been shuffled from foster home to foster home, according to InspireMore. It looked as though the young bloodhound would never find a home to call his own.
From the beginning of their relationship, Taylor was determined to give Bentley the kind of loving family life he deserved after adopting him from All Breed Rescue and Training, a local rescue organization that Taylor continues to support. She worked hard to get him to trust her, drop his tough-guy act, and quit his destructive ways. According to InspireMore, she even sought professional help for his anxiety and severe allergies.All photos were used with the explicit permission of KaTarra Taylor/Facebook
When Taylor moved into her first townhouse with her boyfriend, Nick, Bentley had everything he needed to thrive in life. Nick welcomed the rescue as a part of his household. Bentley now had a comfortable home and lots of love.
Bentley seemed to have it all. The only thing that was missing was a yard of his own. The bloodhound had to rely on his human parents to take him to a local park for a little rest and relaxation.All photos were used with the explicit permission of KaTarra Taylor/Facebook
It didn’t take long for Nick to realize that Bentley needed his own outdoor space. The dog dad dedicated an entire weekend to breaking up concrete in the townhouse backyard. He then replaced it with a much more dog-friendly patch of grass.
Bentley now enjoys lounging in his own backyard. The grass is refreshingly cool, and the company can’t be beaten. The grass may be greener on the other side, but there is truly no place like home for the dog that has found a home of his own.
According to Taylor, Bentley will turn nine this summer. Despite his old age and a hip injury, Taylor emphasized that she and Nick wanted to make Bentley's last years special, and building him his own lounge was a large part of that effort.All photos were used with the explicit permission of KaTarra Taylor/Facebook
