Finding a Home for Hero Dog Bailey
A dog named Bailey (#761650) has been waiting for a family for 668 days at San Diego Humane Society, and is hoping for an adoption miracle on Aug. 10, 2023, also known as National Spoil Your Dog Day!
Bailey was 9 months old when he arrived at San Diego Humane Society on Sept. 17, 2021. He showed signs of fearfulness and was enrolled at our Behavior Center, which provides specialized intervention for animals who display fear, anxiety and stress. Using positive reinforcement methods, trainers and animal caregivers worked with Bailey to build trust and a foundation of skills to help him succeed in his future home.
During his stay, the young Labrador retriever mix has become a true shelter hero, helping countless other shy pups overcome their fear by being a buddy on walks and during play groups. Every dog Bailey has supported has been adopted, but Bailey is still waiting for his own family as the Behavior Center’s longest resident. “Bailey has been the key to so many other dogs finding their happily ever after and he deserves to be spoiled on his own,” said San Diego Humane Society Vice President of Animal Welfare Amanda Kowalski. “Our team loves Bailey, now we just need a family to step up and give him a chance.” To learn more about Bailey’s ideal family, visit his adoption profile here.
