20/9/20 – Gorgeous Bailey has gone to his new home!
Bailey is a gorgeous 11-year-old Beagle boy who is in an Oldies Club foster home on the Hampshire/Berkshire border. He came into rescue because his owner was having to move to accommodation where dogs aren’t allowed.
Bailey’s ideal home: Handsome Bailey simply needs a cat-free, loving home with someone home most of time. He may take a few weeks to settle in – at his foster home he took around 3 weeks.
Can be left for short periods: Bailey is OK to be left for a few hours occasionally but he loves to have his family around him. He wouldn’t suit a home with people who go out to work.
Good with dogs: Once properly introduced to them, Bailey likes being around other dogs. He is currently in foster with three small dogs.
Unknown with cats: Bailey hasn’t lived with cats previously so we will be rehoming him to a cat-free home.
Fine with children: Bailey likes older children but he has never lived with them. Any children in his new home would need to be aged 10+ and be kind and sensible.
Enjoys walks: Bailey is having a 30-minute walk in the morning and the afternoon. He can be a little anxious if he meets larger, darker-coloured, hairier dogs when on lead. He mustn’t be let off lead until he is well bonded with you. Once he does go off lead, the command to use to stop him is “wait”.
OK in the car if he sits with you: Bailey gets anxious if you separate him off in the car, so needs to sit on a seat with a car harness and be next to you.
Bailey’s favourite pastimes: Eating and sleeping. In true Beagle style, food is Bailey’s biggest love!
Health notes: Bailey is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been wormed and flea treated. He had a dental when he came into Oldies Club care, so he has lovely clean teeth.
Bailey’s foster carers tell us: He’s a lazy, sleepy food magnet and occasionally a fuss magnet when he is feeling anxious. He’s a very handsome “Crufts-type” Beagle who, once used to his environment, has his nose on-sniff permanently on walks. Bailey does have a tendency to have Beagle flatulence, but this should improve when he feels secure in his new home and is settled on a diet that suits him. During the first week in foster he had a few accidents of the poo variety, probably as he was feeling anxious and was getting used to his new circumstances. Bailey is a really calm boy with a lovely nature.
If you would like to offer Bailey a permanent home, please read our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:
Telephone: 0844 586 8656
Bailey can be rehomed within a 2-hour drive of his foster home. Note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet him.
If you would love to offer a home to an oldie but your circumstances aren’t suitable, perhaps you would be kind enough to sponsor one of the special oldies we are caring for that, due to health problems, are unlikely to be offered a permanent home.
