Homeless dog becomes local cause

Listen to this story
Back in September, faculty and staff at St. Lawrence University got an e-mail from English Professor Peter Bailey - "adopt a Bentley" it said.
Bentley - a big friendly puppy -- needed a home.

In October, Peter Bailey repeated his request, and a couple weeks ago, he emailed again.
Attached to the third note were a couple pictures...soon Bentley's cause spread. Word about the Boxer-St. Bernard mix reached into the Adirondacks and south to Syracuse.
There's no happy ending, yet, but Bentley has attracted friends and visitors to the St. Lawrence Valley SPCA in Ogdensburg.

Nora Flaherty spoke with Peter Bailey about Bentley's cause:
