Bailey is a young, affectionate, frisky Border Collie who is looking for his forever home. He is just over a year old, weighs 50 pounds, and he has a smooth black and white coat with a full tail. Bailey is housebroken, crate-trained, and he knows his basic and advanced obedience commands! He is very treat driven which makes training easier. Bailey is pretty good on a leash but does pull when he gets excited about seeing another dog or person. He is a great passenger who loves to sit and look out the car window.
Bailey is a friendly guy who loves people. He is a high play drive, medium-to-high Velcro boy who does have an “off switch”, but a lot of play needs to happen before then! Bailey loves to do almost anything active with his foster family – walking, hiking, running, going on errands, etc. Bailey is athletic so a dog sport like agilityor luring would be welcome. Earlier in his life, Bailey did not have a chance to play with other dogs and he is still learning how to “talk dog”. Bailey absolutely LOVES to play with other dogs but he sometimes misses their cues when they have had enough of the game! Bailey also chases cats, squirrels, bugs, bees, birds, anything that he spots while running in the yard! And this loving boy enjoys lots of snuggles and belly scratches when all of his playing and chasing is done for the day.
The ideal home for Bailey is an active one, shared with a family who loves to play, will engage his body and brain, and is ready to add another frisky player to the “home team”. A fenced yard is important, another young, energetic, and playful dog is ideal, Border Collie experience is a plus, and he may do best in a child-free home (he can still act like a mouthy jumpy puppy). No cats or small animals please. Bailey is a diamond in the rough who is just beginning to shine; an affectionate, fun-loving, happy, active guy with so much potential, who needs a family who will continue his training and include him in the action. If you are ready for a Bailey in your life, apply today! Bailey is fostered in Birchwood, TN.
