A volunteer writes: Resting quietly in her kennel all morning, I kept my eye on Miss Bailey for a signal that she was ready for a walk. Signal given (standing up front in her kennel), I leashed her and lifted her easily from her top berth. Going potty as soon as we were out the door indicates she’s likely housetrained, and as she clearly has vision issues I chatter away so that she can follow my voice as we walk. Bailey is good on leash, stumbling from time to time as
surfaces change but nothing phases her and she motors on. Bailey joined us when the police received a call about a dog tied to a pole and left, and that was sweet Bailey. Her little stubby tail wags as we walk and I talk to her, and when I tell her she’s a good girl, it wags a bit harder. A snuggler, a sweetheart, a calm, gentle girl, Bailey is in need of a person or family with whom to snuggle. Her eyes need to be looked at by a vet to determine a course of treatment but whether she will regain her vision is unknown. The known is that it doesn’t really matter as she’ll always lead with her heart. What more can you ask for?
