Bailey is a 5 year old Harrier hound who loves his toys more than anything in the world. He particularly enjoys playing with soft teddys and raggy ones, so would loves a house with its own secure garden so that he can entertain himself. Bailey enjoys having his meals in kongs, puzzle feeders and snuffle mats. He is very true to his breed and his favourite thing to do while on walks is having his nose to the ground, getting up to houndy mischief!
Type of home needed
Although Bailey can come across as a confident lad on walks, this hard exterior masks his sensitive side. He is looking for an adult only home with owners that are patient and understand that he may take time to adjust to a new home, as well as being happy to walk him muzzled. Bailey would struggle in a home where there are too many friends and family members visiting. Therefore, his new home would have to be on the quiter side with no visiting children. At times Bailey may find the world a little scary so having a 'safe place' in an area of the house would be beneficial to help him adjust. He would prefer a home where his family are around for most of the day, and when he is left alone, he has things to keep him occupied. Bailey has lived in a home before and was house trained, however, he may have an accident during the settling in period.
More about me
New owners will need to visit Bailey multiple times to build a relationship with him and to be shown the training that has begun at the centre. Bailey has a combination of behavioural needs, meaning adopters must be invested in providing him with long term consistent training. I am now available for rehoming so please contact the centre if you are suitable.
During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our
rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful
staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now
able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs.
This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of
being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by
your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without
your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to
those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs
get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them
their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult
time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue
looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...
