This is BAILEY  (from IN)

BAILEY: NEEDS A HOME NOW!!! This sweet, very easily managed girl needs to get out of the rescue and into a home. This was to be a stopping place to keep her stable and save her life which Great Babies Rescue with Terry Havens Holzheimer gratefully did without waiting. However, her rescue has so many with special needs and she must devote her time to each one, so Bailey really needs to get into her loving, forever home.


Bailey is wonderful with people, children, dogs any size, cats, etc so will make a GREAT addition to a family who might even have some of the listed. PLEASE contact Terry Havens Holzheimer, Debbie Wuerzberger or Jill Porter if you are interested and Terry will handle what is needed thru her rescue efforts. We are here to help expedite this for a very special ,loving girl.

Timeframe needed to find a home: Needs a forever home as soon as possible due to numbers of dogs in this special needs rescue where she is residing. Some of the dogs there are elderly and require more time from the rescue folks and it is best she doesn’t get too accustomed to this setting making moving again more difficult on her.

NOTES (any other pertinent information that will help you decide if you might be the safe, loving forever home):


Bailey loves to run around outdoors and play with other dogs and children. She is a sweet, loving dog. She would love to have someone that can be there most of the day, so someone who is possibly retired with grand children, someone who works from the home, someone who can take her with them to their work, has a big fenced-in yard, other dogs, and who wants to take care of a sweet, playful baby, would be perfect.


Bailey is definitely a “baby proof” baby who loves to counter surf. She will look for food and though other household items might be there, she doesn’t tear anything up…just wants more food.
