Bailey - in Maine
Posted January 2021
Bailey just had a birthday! She is a 1 yr. old 50 lb boxer mix who needs a savvy individual or family to help her through the next phase of learning. She is a lovable and snuggly girl when she is tired out but she is a busy one! Bailey has not had a lot of limits put on her in her past so she has learned to push them. She is very responsive to training and has been working with our friends at Kompletely K9 Dog Training and Rehabilitation to help her become the awesome girl she can be! She responds to clear expectations.
Bailey is not a crate lover but needs it to keep her safe from chewing, counter-surfing and general mischief. She uses an indestructible crate right now which will be an investment for a new family. Bailey is learning “place” and is learning she doesn’t need to guard resources, especially not the humans in her life. She seems to like most dogs but she wants to be the boss of them if she doesn’t have limits set for her.
Bailey likes young people but with her tendency to boss around and guard, we think that older kids would be the best for her so that she doesn’t treat little ones as packmates.
A new owner will need to be experienced with dog ownership and be willing to follow up with training for Bailey.
If you have interest in meeting Bailey or any of our cuties please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout Maine and it is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
