Bailey is looking for an adult only home with experienced owners and no visiting children. His new owner should be around for most of the day. He needs a home with lots of patience and that can be understanding of his body language and behaviours.

In his previous home, Bailey was destructive and would howl when left. He is crate trained and would benefit from having one again in his new home. He is housetrained but may still urinate in excitement.

On lead, Bailey is strong for his size. He can be erratic on lead and has slipped walking equipment previously so will need to be walked on a secure harness. He whines and pulls towards dogs when he sees them but is under socialised and will need careful socialisation once in the home if he is to improve. He will need a home with a private, secure garden.

Bailey loves to play, and soft toys are his favourite! He will happily play by himself but will resource guard around people so care should be taken if he has something of value. He can be persistent when overexcited and will need lots of calm time in the home so that he can learn more appropriate behaviours.

In the right home, Bailey will make a lovely companion, but his new owners should be prepared that he is going to be an ongoing training project.
