Can you provide a home for deaf dog Bailey?
An "affectionate" deaf dog currently at RSPCA Southridge is looking for a loving new home.
Bailey is this week’s pet looking for a new owner in our regular RSPCA Southridge appeal.
She is a beautiful nine-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who was transferred to Southridge from another centre.
A Southridge spokeswoman said: “She had been signed over to the RSPCA as she was not getting along with the other dog in the home after the dog became unwell.
“Bailey is a very special lady as she is deaf, and so is looking for a home with owners experienced with deaf dogs.”
The RSPCA spokeswoman added: “Although Bailey is deaf, this does not deter her from enjoying life.
“She is a very affectionate girl who adores playing ball games with the staff and volunteers at the centre.
“She also loves going on long walks.”
Bailey is looking for a home with owners who will continue with her training, and will work on her socialisation with other dogs.
She requires an adult only home where she will be the only pet with someone at home for most of the day as she is not used to being left and can sometimes be a little noisy.
The Southridge spokeswoman said that Bailey needs a patient and understanding owner who will help her through some of her anxieties.
Bailey’s new owners will also need to slowly reintroduce her into home life as she has been in kennels for some time.
“Bailey is a fantastic girl, who sadly has been unlucky recently,” said the RSPCA spokeswoman.
“She deserves to find someone who will give her a chance and the fresh start she needs in life.
“She is such a loving girl who desperately needs someone to love.”
