Not available for interstate adoption
Info as of 22.02.2018
In order to meet Bailey please complete the Expression of Interest Form.
While Bailey loves all the members of the family he does tend to bond more closely with one member. He is a loyal and devoted companion, waiting patiently at the door until you come home. He will suit active retirees and also families with older kids.
He will not suit homes where residents are very young, frail, elderly, time poor or wanting a babysitter for a current dog.
Bailey has a beautiful nature. He is intelligent, well behaved, easily controlled and loves affection. Bailey is loyal and eager to please making a wonder companion for someone looking for company. He is very handsome too ☺
Originally from a breeder, Bailey’s fur will grow long and needs regular grooming. If kept short he is low shedding.
Bailey has mild epilepsy but as long as he has his medication he has been fine. The cost is minimal at around $40 every 100 days. This is not the reason he needs a new home. Genuine applicants are welcome to speak to Bailey’s vet for more reassurance.
Yes. He is becoming less interested in other dogs and more interested in his family. He is not one to play with other dogs.
Yes – Bailey makes a great family dog. However, we recommend any kids be primary school aged or older and only if gentle and calm around animals.
Medium – Bailey is playful and energetic. He loves a daily walk especially off lead and the beach is his favourite.
