Bailey's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Bailey's Story...
Meet Bailey! He is a 4 year old , yellow lab mix who was born on 01-10-08. He was adopted by a local couple via the AHS at the age of 8 weeks.
Bailey quickly bonded with the female in the family who often took him running. He has become available for re-homing due to the female's untimely death. Since her passing, neighbors have occasionally taken him on runs, but he needs significant daily exercise that his human dad simply can't provide.
Bailey is a high-energy, smart, friendly and loyal dog. He is a fantastic watch dog, and easily trained using positive reinforcement.
Since his adoption as a puppy, Bailey has been in a loving and secure home alongside a very sweet female black lab. Bailey and the other dog have an excellent relationship.
Bailey has had no medical issues since he was a pup. He will be up-to-date on all vaccinations as of 9/7/2012. Although he cannot be adopted before 9/7, he can meet with potential adoptive families.
Bailey is good with women, men and other dogs. Cats - unknown. Children - unknown.
He would be an outstanding dog for an active person (mountain biker, hiker or runner), or for a family who lives on a large piece of property with lots of room for Bailey to run and play.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bailey, a Bellingham Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham 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 Bellingham 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 Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
