Rescue Dog Never Had His Own Yard Before — So His Mom Built Him One
Bentley had previously been in four homes before KaTarra Taylor adopted him. Most people couldn’t manage his nervousness and medical difficulties, but Taylor believed he deserved a chance at a happy permanent home and refused to give up on him.
Taylor and Bentley were able to work through a lot of Bentley’s anxiety issues together, and while he still struggles, he’s improving every day, and his mother wouldn’t exchange him for anything.
Taylor told The Dodo, “He’s half lovely doofus and half grouchy grandfather.”
Taylor lived in a one-bedroom apartment when she initially got Bentley. She realized it wouldn’t be enough room for the 120-pound dog in the long run, so she opted to upgrade.
Taylor explained, “I ended up purchasing a townhouse so we could be together.” “It had a covered patio, which I knew he’d enjoy.” I couldn’t afford a house with a yard, but I figured with the appropriate aid, I could make the patio into a tiny yard.”
Bentley liked lying on the grass when he and his mother went for walks or to the park, and his mother yearned for him to have his own patch of grass where he could relax anytime he wanted. The endeavor appeared intimidating at first, but with her boyfriend’s aid, they were able to finish remodeling the patio into the ideal area for Bentley.
“Last week, I finally decided it was time to have this done,” Taylor explained. “It was all done in one day for about $400 thanks to my partner Nick.”
After several hours of work, the yard was finally complete …
…and Taylor couldn’t wait to show Bentley, hoping he’d appreciate it as much as she did.
Taylor led Bentley outdoors, and as soon as he saw his beautiful green yard, she knew she’d made the correct decision and that all of the effort had been well worth it.
“Bentley lay down right away and stayed there for several hours,” Taylor explained. “He appears to be overjoyed.”
