Bailey is a heroic golden 13 year old Staffy boy who came into the Oldies Club dog rescue from a stray kennels after being found tied to a lamppost.He is now in a foster home in West Sussex Prior to him coming into the Oldies Club clever Bailey alerted his respite foster carer to a serious fire in a neighbour’s garden. You see, Bailey really is a hero! You can read the story of Bailey’s heroism on the BBC website.
Bailey is fine about being left for up to 4 hours. He wouldn’t be happy to live with a full-time worker, but part-time hours might be acceptable to him.
Bailey needs a home where he is your only dog. He is OK with some dogs when out and he seems to prefer small dogs. He doesn’t like it if off lead dogs run up to him and will grizzle to tell them to leave him alone. Bailey needs a home without cats.
Bailey has had no contact with children since coming into foster. The kennels said he was fine with volunteers’ children, but we do not know if he has ever lived with children.
Bailey’s favourite pastimes: Walking, eating, playing in the garden, helping with everything around the house, and cuddles!
Bailey’s dislikes: He jumps if you touch him when he does not know you are there, maybe because he is deaf.
Bailey’s ideal home: He would love a home where he can spend lots of the day with you, pottering around and helping with the housework and gardening. He would particularly love a retired person or a home worker who will give him plenty of love and attention.
Bailey is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and has been wormed and flea treated. Other than a touch of deafness, Bailey just has some mild arthritis in his back legs but this needs no treatment at present. He can run and jump without problems.
