General information
Bailey is a loving, playful, healthy and food loving youngster; he has finished the medical checkups and is current on all vaccinations. He is a very friendly dog, relatively quiet, submissive and not over-active. Although he looks very out-going, he is very gentle and low-key, and is friendly with both human, dogs and cats. He loves being clean and is used to doing his job outdoor. He had probably been attacked or abused by humans while he was a stray, he can still be frightened by big, abrupt movements. However, he would never attack, only try to escape or hide. Therefore, with Bailey one must be gentle and soft-spoken at first so they can slowly begin an interaction with one another. With such a sweet and gentle dog, it is worth the effort and Bailey is deserved a forever home. Please watch his videos to know how much fun this young pup can share with your family!

Rescue Story
Five month old Bailey and his sister Scout had been foraging for food at the soccer field under the bridge, where many strays hung around. One day, a kind person who frequented the soccer field with his dog saw the emaciated Bailey rummaging for scraps of food there. He took pity and went to get food for them. As Bailey is such a personable sweet dog, he began to feed him daily. He also posted on line trying to look for a forever home for Bailey. A month passed, and nothing happened, that is, until our volunteer saw Bailey and Scout's story and decided to help, since we firmly believe that they will find their humans and their happiness.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bailey, a San Mateo Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in San Mateo, or seeking a Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in San Mateo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Mateo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Mateo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Mateo paves the way for another one to be saved.
