The only time that this little live wire, 13 week old Yorkshire Terrier cross, Bailey is quiet is at night. Bailey is being fostered in Crosskeys, Newport. His tail is always wagging and he just loves to play. He loves a cuddle – particularly at night. When he came in we were advised that he has a small heart murmur but our vet has said that this is nothing to worry about. He is puppy – so normal puppy behaviour is to be expected and all basic puppy training will be ongoing. Bailey already knows his name and does come back when you call him. He is currently learning how to sit but it is all a big game as far as he is concerned. As you would expect at his age, house training is still a work in progress.
Bailey is fine with children aged 3 and over and loves adults of any age. As long as you play with him he’s happy to see everybody. He travels well in a carrier in the car and has no problems at the vets. He loves to be out in the garden – in all weathers. He won’t jump your fences but you will need to plug any small gaps as he is so tiny. He is a puppy so he will chew! Keep cables, etc, well out of his way! Bailey is happy to be left in a crate overnight or if his foster mum pops out. He has been fine with the other dogs in the house for company. Bailey hasn’t been lead trained yet but is happy to wear a collar. Bailey currently lives with both large and small breeds dogs of both sexes. He is sociable with them and understands when other dogs tell him off. He is fine with cats. He does try to get them to play but will leave them alone if they are not interested. As he is young and adaptable, Bailey would suit most families but obviously cannot be left on his own for very long due to his age – and would not be suitable for a family with very young children as he is very tiny. Ages 3 and up would be fine. He will be a wonderful forever companion and would love to be part of a family.
Bailey is micro-chipped, has started his vaccination, worming and flea treated. It is a condition of adoption that he will be neutered as soon as he is old enough – a voucher towards the cost of this will be issued. As he is still a puppy it is also a condition of adoption that Jimmie is taken to puppy training classes to continue with his socialisation and training. Prospective adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in South Wales.
If you are interested in adopting Bailey please read about our rehoming process and complete a Pre-Adoption form ( link here ) and one of our adoption coordinators will contact you for a chat.
