Chris Atkinson: Sweet Bailey...If I was at home more, I'd take you in a minute to hang out with Digby, Hobbes, and Puffin. Good luck little lady.

Bailey is a sweet senior girl (12.5years old) looking for her "furever" home. Bailey was surrendered by her family after a divorce situation. She was with her original family her entire life. When we took Bailey in, she was weak, dehydrated, had severe dental disease, and had difficulty walking due to being crated for extended amounts of time in her previous life.

Bailey does have thyroid disease that requires oral medication which is very affordable. At one point Bailey was 20+ pounds overweight, so she’s got some loose skin that hangs down but that only gives her character (as the vet accurately put it). Bailey is at a good weight now and getting around very well, she goes on daily walks and likes to trot. Bailey was born with a deformed tail tip, but that doesn’t prevent it from wagging it!

After weeks of love and affection, veterinarian care, medication, oral surgery, Bailey has the sparkle back in her eyes. Bailey is a low energy dog, she loves to eat, loves walks, and just being with someone. She doesn’t really snuggle but will give you kisses and tail wags. Bailey is not a big fan of the crate as she seemed to have spent a lot of time crated in the past. Bailey is potty trained, and has free roam of our house, she lies in a dog bed most of the day. She will nibble at the edge of the dog bed, almost like nursing from it… we think it’s a security thing, it’s so adorable. Bailey has not been exposed to cats, but does get along very well with our two adult beagles.

Bailey’s ideal home would be a retired person or couple, someone who works from home who can spend a lot of time with her. Bailey does bark when left alone, probably separation anxiety. This senior girl is a true companion – just wants to be with you!
