After Nearly 3 Years in a Shelter, Bentley the Bulldog Finds Forever Home

"Our Bentley will need no more #TuesdayswithBentley, because he's in a new home where every day is a new day with Bentley"

Bentley spent more than 1,000 days at a Philadelphia animal shelter, but now the longtime resident has finally found a forever home.

To be exact, the lovable American Bulldog spent 1,076 days at the Pennsylvania SPCA, putting his stay there at nearly three years, according to the shelter. For him, that's about half his life in a kennel.

As of Saturday, though, the pup finally has a permanent family.

"It's bittersweet, but more than that, it's beautiful. Our Bentley will need no more #TuesdayswithBentley, because he's in a new home where every day is a new day with Bentley," the PSPCA said on Instagram.

A fixture at the shelter for years, Bentley became somewhat of a social media darling during his stay, even featuring in his own version of the opening to "The Office."

Ever an altruist, though, Bentley used his fame for the greater good. In August, he landed a $10,000 donation for improvements at the shelter.

Now, his kindness has finally been repaid. As the PSPCA put it, "It takes a village, and today, we celebrate."
