Age: 6 years old
Breed: Australian Shepherd
Weight: 50 lbs
Bailey is a 6 year old, 50 lb (and is working to gain her girlish figure back) Aussie who loves life. Bailey has relatively good house manners, she is housebroken, crate-trained, and knows basic commands. She is a good listener and follows most commands quickly. She loves her toys and often greets her foster parents with a toy when they return home. Bailey does love her people and will follow from room to room, but she is also fairly independent. She is quite the cuddler and waits to be asked to hop up!
Bailey is working on polite greetings with people.
She is a little unsure at first, as many Aussies are, and her foster parents have found having treats on hand for greetings is the quickest way to her heart. Like most Aussies she will alert you if something is amiss until she is reassured everything is OK. She is a dominant female and needs slow and appropriate introductions with other dogs.
What does Bailey want? Bailey would love adopters that would promise to play fetch with her as much as possible – all day long if she had it her way! She has been getting at least 1 fetch session every day and some days multiple! She has a medium-high energy level. Bailey does play well with the resident male dog and would be happy with a play-mate, but was just as happy as an only dog prior to rescue. Bailey demonstrates some interest in cats, mostly when they run from her, only homes with dog-savvy cats will be considered. Bailey is NOT available to a home with small children.
If you’re looking for an energetic, trainable dog that is out of the puppy stage, Bailey is the girl for you!
Bailey is spayed and will be microchipped and UTD on vaccines prior to adoption. She is currently fostered in Apex, NC. Her adoption fee is $250.
