Personality: Bailey has been with her GRR foster family for about a month now, and they are seeing her personality start to come out. It didn’t take long for her to show that she is completely housebroken and is totally not interested in using a crate. Part of that is that she is very seldom left alone and when she is she is in her personal “suite” set up in the master bedroom.

Bailey has finally started to warm up to the other dog in the home, and visa-versa. She has been engaging Shepherd in her own very special and silly play style. Bailey will growl, howl and bark as an invitation to play while showing him her very own play-time dance. She hasn’t been exposed to cats to this point.

Bailey at first was very excitable in the car because she likes going for rides. Now she’s more used to it and lays down calmly for the majority of the ride. She still pulls some on the leash, but the longer the walk the more she settles down.

She sleeps through the night but is an early riser – 6:30a.m. Yawn.

In the house Bailey loves to climb onto the couch. It brings her so much joy to be up there her foster mom has stopped trying to keep her off. Her favorite thing is to flop her legs and chest over the back of the couch. Her activity level is an ever-changing thing. She has more energy every day and is starting to play with toys and her foster brother, Shepherd. She shakes her stuffy toys while playfully growling. She is definitely more comfy in the house than outside and no longer gets startled by knocks at the door. She does bark at dogs passing by if the shutters are open.

For reasons probably only known to Bailey, she loves to lay with her snout bumped up against furniture, walls, and under the couch cushions. Maybe this is her way of practicing sensory deprivation!

Outside, she has taken to eating dirt and sticks, so the family tries to keep her on a leash on the deck with them. This is a new behavior and may be because she was always accompanied outside in the past.

Ideal Home: Since Bailey is starting to enjoy the company of the other dog in the house, it might be good for her to land in a home with another dog to play with that can adapt to her goofy play style. She loves people and loves to be in the house, so her forever family should be willing to oblige this type of doggy. She would do best with people who are home a lot and that would cater to her strong desire for human attention.
