Bentley, the unwanted dog

Meet Bentley, the three-year-old dog that nobody wants.

When Bentley was just a pup, he was surrendered by his owner to a shelter in Nassau County in Long Island, N.Y.

Bentley was one of a litter of pups surrendered that day, so many years ago – his siblings found homes, but he never was adopted.

Today, the now adult dog, continues to wait, and hope that at some point, someone might want to call him their own.

Biological Hazard in USA on Saturday, 06 July, 2013 at 18:03 (06:03 PM) UTC.

Hundreds of bluefish are turning up dead off the coast of Long Island – and nobody knows why. Researchers at the Marine Animal Disease Laboratory at Stony Brook University are investigating what could be killing hundreds of cocktail bluefish discovered this week in and around the Shinnecock Bay. Professor Christopher Gobler of Stony Brook’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences tells Newsday he’s puzzled as to why just bluefish are turning up dead. The Shinnecock Reservation is also home to mackerels, sand sharks and dog fish. None of them are turning up dead. The paper reports that most of the bluefish recovered are too decomposed to test, but a live one showed no obvious signs of disease.

A pit bull saved a woman from a fire in her Long Island, New York home on Friday, barking to alert her as the flames began to spread from the front to the back of the house.

Jackie Bonasera said she was drying her hair in an upstairs bathroom of the home on Gabriele Drive in East Norwich when she heard the dog barking. She ran downstairs and saw the flames on the side of her garage.

She was able to escape the house.

“I ran out of the house and my neighbors came running over, and then I thought about the dog – I’m like, ‘He saved my life, I have to save his,'” Bonasera recounted.
