ON HOLD - ADOPTION PENDING 16.07.17
Located Karrinyup WA 6018
Not available for interstate adoption.
Deadline end of July 2017 - meaning final EOIs need to be in by approx July 12th, due to the 2 week cooling off period.
Deadline is due to rental pressure and the likely outcome if missed will be kennelling. Foster care is unlikely to be welcomed in this case.
If listed here please be reassured the dog is still available. After reading the profile below, if you would like to meet BAILEY please complete the Expression of Interest form.
Bailey will socialise with other dogs. When on the lead she may be interested in some and not others. Bailey used to live with another dog but that was some time ago.
Yes. She currently lives with a 2 and 5 yr old. However, we recommend any kids be primary school aged or older – for Bailey’s sake.
She can easily manage a 5 km walk and loves getting out and about. She is still ‘full of beans’’.
How is this dog on a lead?
Like most dogs she starts off excited but settles down. She is easy to train too.
How is this dog off the lead?
Bailey’s beagle nose can get the better of her. Her recall is sometimes good but not reliable.
''She was recently taken to the park off lead and she was a dream, not a bother with other dogs either,'' said her carer.
Bailey needs a secure yard with fencing she can’t dig under. She may take advantage of a gate left open and wander off following a smell.
Nuisance barker or destructive?
Bailey will alert you to something strange but generally settles down afterwards. She will also let you know it is dinner time with a few barks – so don’t be late ☺ Like many dogs, if you ignore Bailey for extended periods of time she will get bored and may chew something.
Tolerance to being alone.
Bailey prefers human company but is ok alone in a small to medium sized yard in an environment that is not isolated and too quiet.
Bailey is a chow hound – she loves food !!! Liver treats, bones and chicken necks are top of the list. She is also very affectionate and likes pats, belly scratches, walks and car rides.
She is not overly fond of water but she does tolerate baths – even enjoying a recent hydro bath.
As Bailey loves people she will thrive in a home where someone is home more often than not and where she will be a companion for someone who loves dogs. She will suit active retirees or a family with older kids. She will not suit homes where residents are very young, frail, elderly or time poor.
Bailey is a creature of habit and will help you maintain a routine. If you feed and walk her at the same time each day she will soon learn when it is due and remind you if you are late. She is also smart and easy to train.
Her floppy ears and puppy dog eyes make her the envy of all at the park. Bailey can be mischievous in a likeable and amusing way that will only serve to endear her to you more. She will do anything for food so her intake will need to be monitored – not giving in to those pleading eyes for more treats ☺
