Bailey has met her perfect match! BCFS is delighted to announce our first adoption of this shiny new year with Bailey’s fresh start in life!
Bailey and her new mom and dad!
This darling senior King Charles Spaniel mix entered our foster care program in December, and our hopes for Bailey’s perfect family in our first post for her are exemplified in the lovely couple who adopted her.
Bailey is 11 years old, a senior but with a lot of spunk and life to live, ideal for her new dad and mom, Lambert and Linda.
We’re so pleased they adopted Bailey this past week!
She’s a girl who loves to cuddle and will thrive in her new home with her dad and mom who are retirees and have the time, experience with rescue dogs, and love to give Bailey.
Bailey will have her family with her most of the time as she settles into her new home and life, and as the years go by.
She’ll get daily walks and also has a completely fenced backyard to relax in, and have the run of the house which she’ll share with their three dog-savvy cats.
This beautiful girl is in good hands. Linda and Lambert have already sent a quick update on Bailey, including her planned surgery to remove irritating growths on her eye and a dental:
“Just a short update on Bailey. She has adjusted to her new home really well and is part of the family. She loves her walks with me as well as relaxing on the couch with Linda.
She goes in for her surgery tomorrow. As well as dealing with the growths by her right eye lid, we have decided to get some dental done so she only has to have anesthetic once.”
We’re hopeful for a successful outcome for Bailey. Thank you, Linda and Lambert, for making Bailey a part of your family.
A little reminder from BCFS: Often, adopting a senior dog is a wonderfully suitable choice for retirees, seniors and middle-aged people who tend to lead more relaxed, quieter lives than young whippersnappers.
Senior dogs are usually easy keepers, not as much work as rambunctious puppies and younger dogs, already house-trained, know a lot of words already so are easier to manage and train, and they’re amazing company to curl up on the couch with, walk or just sit with or to listen to your thoughts. It’s a win-win for both the rescued dog and his or her family. We hope you’ll please follow our rescue work this year and consider adopting any of our future seniors!
