Bailie – Collie

About Bailie

 

Bailie is a beautiful, 17-month old Collie girl.
This is what our volunteer said about her following a visit:

Bailie is full of energy and vocal. On arrival in the house she was very excitable and jumped up at me – she’s a typical young, energetic dog.

She remained excitable throughout my visit, I think this was just excitement of someone new in the house, rather than this being a typical daily behaviour. She was very affectionate to her owner and her 4-year old son and is obviously very people oriented.

I am told that Bailie is brilliant with other dogs, not so great with cats. She is excellent in a harness, but not a lead. She understands commands such as sit, lie down and stay. She will not leave the threshold of the front door until told. She is house trained but may have the occasional wee if she’s been left for a long time.
She will need an active home who can help burn off some of her energy, but also loves cuddles. She will let you take food and toys off her with no aggression. She should be very easy to train to stop the jumping, barking and would be happy placed with a family who would enjoy spending time taking her to training & keeping her busy.

Bailie had a condition called OCD lesion in her shoulder. This has been treated and she has recovered extremely well from the operation and has not needed any pain killers since September. She was discharged from the specialist vet beginning of October and all has been great with her recovery with no lasting issues. We can make vet records available to potential adopters.

We are looking for a home for Bailie where there is someone around the majority of the time as although she is OK to be left for a few hours, she loves people and would prefer not to be left for long periods on a regular basis.
