Age: 11 years
Breed: Golden Retriever
Barkley, now known as Bailey, is an original GRRMF alumni. He was lovingly adopted in 2011 by one of our beloved volunteers who sadly passed away last month. Due to his advanced age and medical issues, GRRMF has placed him in our Sanctuary program. Bailey will live the rest of his life with a very special GRRMF foster family who will love and care for all his needs.
Bailey has already been affectionately named “Bailey Biscuit” because he loves his homemade biscuit that his new mom makes. He’s a very affectionate guy who follows his mom and dad wherever they go – he truly loves his humans! In fact, his mom says he thinks he’s a lapdog, when he isn’t snuggling next to her on her lap he is sitting up in front of her with his paws on her legs.
This sweet boy has already taken his first camping trip with his new family. He wasn’t crazy about the long car ride or the metal steps on the camper but he loved hanging out at the fire pit where he was petted and admired. Bailey loves walks and has claimed the large soft ball and a football as his special toys. Not being a fan of loud noises, Bailey can live without the squeakers and the metal food bowl that has now been switched to a porcelain bowl for this king of the house.
Being the only dog in the household is working out fine for Bailey; he gets lots of attention from his sweet mom and he adores his dad. His favorite place to sleep if on the floor next to dad where he sleeps through the night and is “up and at ‘em,” ready to go in the morning.
Who would have known that this adorable, well behaved dog would start his journey at GRRMF and come full circle to live the rest of his life with a committed and loving GRRMF family. His mom has already been hard at work embroidering a bandanna that says, “You had me at WOOF!”
GRRMF is thankful that we can provide this wonderful Sanctuary program to take care of these special dogs, with special needs. Your donations make this possible and we thank all of our supporters for your love and dedication to this rescue.
