Background

Bailey came to us through no fault of his own after an unfortunate change of circumstances in his home. He went straight into a lovely family foster home.

Character

Bailey is just a bundle of love and happiness, he slotted straight in with his foster family and their other foster dog, Dancer. Bailey exhibits the best characteristics of his breed-mix with high intelligence, playfulness, loyalty and stamina. As mentioned already, he is well adapted to home life and sleeps well through the night either on his bed or with his human.

Bailey is young and has real joy-de-vivre: everyone is a potential playmate! He can get excited when he first goes on his walks and when he sees other dogs, but this clever boy has responded very well to instruction and training and this behaviour is redirected smoothly.

Type of home

Bailey is affectionate and tactile and would really be happiest in a home where he would be embraced as a member of the family. As already stated, he is a young boy and an intelligent breed, so would be best suited to a home where he is stimulated and gets quality excercise.
He settles well in the home though, so would love to have a day of exploring and then curl up with his humans each night to chill.

Bailey travels very well in the car and is ready to go on all the family adventures!

He spends most of his time playing with the resident dog in his foster home, so we would love for Bailey to go to a home where he will have another playful dog! His play can sometimes get a little enthusiastic so a similar sized canine companion would be best.

Bailey likes children and has a sweet nature, so we feel he could be suited to a family home with or without children. He is not a tiny dog, being the size you would expect of a Dalmation x small Collie, because of his size and play style he would probably be best suited to sensible children, aged around 7 years upwards.

Training needs

Bailey is so well rounded and would only require some fine tuning to his recall and his lead walking at the beginning of walks.

He is house trained, although as a male dog, he so does sometimes mark indoors in new environments but this is not something he makes a habit of.

Adopting – Bailey is currently in foster care in Woolavington, Bridgwater and successful applicants will need to meet him here.
