This is BAILEY

This absolutely adorable baby girl is Bailey and she had such a rough start to her young life. She is a Rat Terrier/Terrier mix who was thankfully saved from a hoarding case when she was 2 weeks old by this wonderful rescue. She is a super high energy pup that loves to run and jump.

The rescue is in the process of training Bailey, but she is currently very “mouthy” so would not be good around children…yet. This kind rescue has also offered to transport Bailey, so please open your loving home to this dear, baby girl. She really needs stability, love, safety, and someone to manage her ME.

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


“Bailey is a 15 week old puppy looking for a very special adopter. She was recently diagnosed with Megaesophagus, a congenital disease that affects her eating and digestion of food. She will ideally need to go to a family that has experience with ME and the time that is required to make sure she stays healthy and happy. She is a super high energy pup that loves to run and jump.  She will need a home that is willing to dedicate their time to her as ME pups and dogs need a very dedicated family to take care of them.”
