REQUEST TO MEET BAILEY HERE!
There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee. All supplies will be included.
Looking for a really great dog for your family? I would love to apply for the position. I am an adorable Basenji mix. I have a shiny black coat with the cutest white spotted markings. I am male, just 5 years old and weigh 50 pounds. I have been neutered, am up to date on my shots, and very healthy.
My rehoming coordinator thinks that I am also part German Shorthaired Pointer, but we don’t know that for sure.
I have such an interesting history. My owner, who loves me to bits, found me as a stray in Africa. Yup… Africa! That’s probably why I can run like the wind. (Lots of practice chasing Cheetahs!) She adopted me when she lived there, and brought me back to the USA with her. She had always intended for this to be a permanent situation, but things have changed, and my family no longer have the right home for me.
There are 2 reasons that finding me a good home is the best solution;
My family is having to move into an apartment, and there is no outdoor space for me there. I am an athletic dog and I love to feel the wind in my ears as I run like a gazelle. There will be no place or opportunity to do that in their new residence.
My family are all working very long hours – 12 hours a day. That leaves no time for me, and I a spending far too much time alone, in my crate. That’s not why my owner brought me here! She wants me to have the best life ever.
We are dearly hoping to find me a loving home with a family who have some wonderful, energetic kids, a large, securely fenced yard, and plenty of love in their hearts. I am a really loving, good natured dog, and will add plenty of joy, laughter, compassion and companionship to your home.
I am great with other dogs, but not so with cats. Please open your heart and home to me today. I can’t wait to meet you.
Love and licks,
