Hello, my name is Bailey. I am a Golden Retriever and Great Pyrenees mix, so I combine the handsomeness of both and take it to a whole new level! Foster Dad says I’m a BIG teddy bear. I weighed in at 100 pounds today; however, the doctor said I need to get down to 95 pounds.
I have been with my foster dad for just over a week. At first, he only gave me free roam at night when he was home and he let me sleep with him fairly early on, though the bed is pretty much the only furniture I get up on.
This past weekend he let me roam with the brothers (his resident dogs) when he made a couple of quick trips. Monday he let me free roam all day. It was supposed to be just the morning, but work interfered so I got the whole day. Foster Dad was very proud of me.
Today he is only working a half day. We had the vet visit this morning and Foster Dad says I will get free roam again today. I don’t mind the crate and will go in if asked, but if I don’t need to be in there. I am quite happy to hang out with my brothers.
Foster Dad says I am very laid back, though I do really look forward to my walks and get quite excited when it’s time to go. We do walk a lot, though he says I pull too much and he is working on that with me. I love playing with my brothers; we wrestle and have a good time.
This morning I participated in the wrestling match Foster Dad had with one of his resident dogs. We all had a good time, although I think Foster Dad got a bit nervous when I got the zoomies and started barreling around the upstairs. He feels it is very important that I get regular and vigorous exercise. I do love to chase the ball and can do that for hours on end!
I like adult humans; however, in my previous life we had a bad experience with a small human and are a bit afraid of them.
I also would very much like to chase the bunnies, so Foster Dad is not sure how well I would do in a house with cats.
So my ideal family would have no young children and would love to walk or run and play fetch. A fenced yard would be a bonus. Foster Dad is not sure if I would come when called, in as much as I have rarely left his side to begin with (so he hasn’t had a chance to test that). And of course I love to get lots and lots of kisses!
