Bailey came to us after his owner passed away from an illness. She had him since he was a puppy and adored him. He has a smile like a Samoyed and a soft, fluffy, Golden coat and a Golden's temperament. He loves to gently rub up against people like a cat.
Bailey is a fast learner and easily adapts to new surroundings. Bailey learned quickly where his sleeping spot is and goes to his bed when told. He eats at his own place with two other dogs, then goes away without bothering the other dogs. He sits for treats. Bailey's never had to be kenneled and has had free run of the house since the day he arrived. He learned right away to use the dog door when he wants to go outside. He doesn't get on the furniture or chew on anything that hasn't been given to him. A mat or rug on the floor is fine with him to lay on when it's close to people.
Lying outdoors in the sunshine is one of his favorite things. He likes to be outside with his humans but stays in with the other dogs when no people are home. A walk or a ride in the car are his favorites. The sight of a leash makes him really happy. He gets excited and pulls the leash at first, but settles down after a short time.
Bailey's very well behaved on trips to the Saturday Market in Pass Christian. He has good manners when he meets people and other dogs. Bailey is calm around children. He's noticed cats in the park, but doesn't get excited about them. I think he'd be fine with cats in the house, though this has not been proven. Bailey barks to greet people and to remind you when it's time to eat. When he wants your attention, he'll touch you with his paw or bump you with his nose. He's a well behaved, sweet dog who adapts and learns quickly. If Bailey sounds like just the right dog for you, please complete an application and mention him by name. His foster Dad would be happy to share any specific details that you might have.
