My name is Bailey. It’s easy to recognize me by the cool brown patch on my eye, my perky ears and my sweet disposition! Oh, and I am also a bit, shall we say, robust? Just more of me to love, right? Listen, it’s not my fault. I know I need to lose a few when I look in the mirror. It’s hard! Especially when you have a thyroid condition like I do.

I am a GREAT dog and I am ready to fit right into your home. I am great with children of all ages! I am house broken and crate trained – two very important dog traits! I am able to sleep in my crate through the night and can spend a few hours at a time in my crate during the day. I walk fairly well on a leash and will respond well to voice and leash correction.

I am pretty chill and laid back so I really like to relax. It takes a bit of time for me to warm up to other dogs, but no more than a few minutes. If other dogs are playing a bit too rough for me, I just let them know I don’t appreciate being jumped on. That being said, I am good with being an only dog in your household or part of a multi-dog family. Either way is fine with me. I can’t tell you if I like cats or not because I have never met one!

I am not a high energy dog since I am slightly overweight. I do like to play, but I just get tired pretty quickly. I have an advanced degree in cuddling and a masters in lounging around. Pretty impressive, I know!

Note from Foster:

Bailey is being treated for hypothyroid and is currently on a diet to lose weight. he is a very sweet dog and will make a family very happy

About BarkTown Dog Rescue and Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

BarkTown Dog Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. is an all-volunteer non-profit organization. We envision a compassionate world where all dogs reside in responsible, loving homes.

Dogs in our care are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment that is needed. The dogs are then placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement into their permanent home. Our group remains interested in and committed to the welfare of the dogs beyond the adoption process.

Our goal is to help dogs in distress without regard to age, breed, size, or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, dogs in the greatest need take priority.

Finally, we strive to work with area shelters and other rescue groups to develop a network of supporters and volunteers to create a better world for homeless dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

The dogs that we have available for adoption have come from shelters where they were found stray or were given up by their owners. These dogs have been let down by humans in the past and may be suffering from physical ailments or abuse. So, by the time these dogs come into our rescue group they have been thru a lot and need a home that can provide them with structure, guidance, love, patience and time to adjust to their new surroundings. Please understand that as dogs transition from shelter to foster home to forever home there can be set backs along the way and they will need your help to adjust.

All dogs that are adopted from BarkTown are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and provided with all necessary veterinary care. However, owning a pet can be expensive and you must be prepared to provide quality food, monthly heartworm medication, monthly flea and tick medication, yearly shots and routine checkups. In addition, you must prepare for accidents and illnesses that may require expensive treatment or surgeries. Many times our dogs have ended up in shelters because their previous owners were not prepared for these expenses and we want to ensure this never happens to them again.

We strive to know and understand each of our dogs so that we can work to find the best match for each dog and adopter.

Our adoption process includes an adoption application, adoption interview, meet and greet, veterinary reference check, personal reference check and home visit prior to making the adoption final. We reserve the right to deny any application that we feel is not a good fit for any of our dogs for any reason. If you are ready to make a commitment to one of our dogs please complete the adoption application and submit for review. The adoption fees vary based on the age of the animal: Age 7 and up is $250, Under age 7 is $275.
