Profile

Bailey was surrendered to RAGOM when his family did not have adequate time to give him the attention he deserves. Bailey is a healthy, active boy who loves to play. Bailey can be nervous around young children, so children should be age 13+. Bailey can live with other dogs. He has not been tested with cats, but does show a prey drive for bunnies. A physical fence is optional but would be nice to help keep Bailey safe. Bailey is looking for a home where he can get all the human love and attention he craves.

Hello again,

Foster Dad says I need to update my web page to let people know I’m still available. To be honest with you I’m quite content here. We take a nice long walk (about 3 miles a shot) a couple of times a day, and Foster Dad says I’m getting better with the pulling but still have a ways to go.

I have my brothers to play with when the human isn’t around. Heath and I share our bed with the human, though I tend to snuggle more than my brother. Regular meals, though he could be a bit more forthcoming with the kibble. I get to play fetch regularly, and best of all I do not have the stress of the small humans to deal with! 

However Foster Dad tells me there are some people out there who need me even more than he does!

So again some of my requirements:

  • No kids, or at least older kids (let’s say dog-savvy kids13 years old or better). I haven’t had any incidents since coming here but I don’t want to be exposed to that kind of stress again.
  • Lots of walks, or lots and lots of playtime. I do pull especially if rabbits or squirrels are about so strength and balance will be important. Foster Dad hasn’t tried the Gentle Leader on me yet.
  • Foster Dad says because of my potty habits I should probably have a fence. I don’t like to be watched and won’t go #2 on walks. He thought watching my brothers may change my mind, but no, not at this point.
  • I must be close to you 90% of the time, although if you have a cool basement floor I may hang there.
  • If you let me I will want to share your (or should I say MY) bed.
  • I like to give sloppy wet kisses, lots and lots of kisses.
  • Foster Dad says I should let you know I like to bark at strange noises or critters. He did say I was pretty good with the fireworks and only reacted on the really loud bangs.

Well if I think of more things I will let you know in the next update. Here are a couple more pictures so you can see what a handsome dog I am.

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!
