Breed: Aussie/Bernese Mountain Dog Mix

What makes this dog special: Have you ever heard the phrase ‘Ready Made Dog’? It refers to a dog who requires little to no additional training; who displays few or no behavioral problems. They are hard to find when you set out to adopt a new dog to bring into the family. If you’ve been searching for a ready made dog, you’ve found it in Bailey!

What kind of household would be best for this dog?: Bailey is fine with all dogs big and small, is definitely not dominant, and is good with kids as long as they aren’t using her as a jungle gym. Do you like lounging in front of your TV after a long day? So does Bailey. She does not need to be entertained for hours on end. She does, however, like bum-scratches – but is content to do it herself if needed. Even though she likes her cuddle time, Bailey also loves to get out and enjoy life. She is a perfect lady on the leash, and loves romping with her fur-siblings. If you didn’t know better, you’d think she was still a puppy. Bailey is completely housebroken. She will even bark at you to signal that she needs to go outside! She is also crate trained and is happy to chill in her crate if you need her to.

Special recommendations, restrictions for adoption of this dog: She’s a little bit nervous about thunderstorms and rolled up newspapers, but soft talking and petting will calm her down quickly.
