Plenty of Pets

Bailey is a laid back little boy who loves to snuggle and enjoys a good nap, but he also loves a walk or a car ride.

This 10-year-old Shih Tzu requires a special diet and medication because of skin issues and needs eye drops because of dry eyes. He has trouble seeing in low light and ear infections have left him hearing impaired, but he can still hear the fridge door open.

Bailey is good with other dogs but doesn’t like to share his toys with them. He is good with cats, not really paying much attention to them.

Because of his hearing and vision loss, he needs a child free home. It would be best if he wasn’t left alone too much. He has some separation anxiety and will cry at times if left alone.

He’s not destructive and is house trained but accidents may happen in the beginning until he gets used to a new routine.
