My Story

Hi there! My name is Bailey! I was born November 20, 2012. I am friendly, loving and sweet – an all-around happy girl with a contagious smile and wagging tail. I adore people, including kids, and enjoy sharing affection and companionship. I am housetrained and crate trained. I love to take car rides and to spend time with people. I am selective about which dogs I get along with, so the Rescue suggests slow, proper introductions. I like to play with dogs that I select as my friends. I like to play with dogs toys as well. Romping in the snow, catching snowflakes and rolling in the grass are some of my favorite outdoor activities. I love being petted and loved – scratch my head, my back, my butt and I’m in heaven. Snoozing on the couch or in the comfy bed with you is one of my favorite things, too. I also like to take walks and to run in the yard. I’m a smart girl who knows sit, come and down. I prefer a home with no small dogs and no cats, and quite frankly I'll be happiest in a home where I'm the only dog ... no competition for affection or attention. If you have room for a cuddly dog in your heart and home, please give me a chance! Adoption fee: $75. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 30 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

UPCOMING ADOPTION EVENT:
Saturday, June 30: BE A FOSTER educational adoption event at Petco, 29335 Orchard Lake Rd, Farmington Hills (just south of 13 Mile Rd). From 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., come meet adoptable pets, make enrichment toys and learn what fostering pets is all about. Kitten bottle-feeding demonstrations will be held at 2 p.m. and at 3 p.m. Volunteers will collect items from our supply Wish List. Adoption fees are waived for all adult dogs and cats over 6 months old. Stop by to say hello and learn how fostering saves lives - all foster care supplies provided.

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
