Bailey is a medium sized lady, who resembles a corgi x beagle. We think she is approximately 5 years old. She is gentle, house trained, walks well on a leash and is very quiet. Sometimes she doesn’t like to share her treats, so a mature quiet home would be best for her (no children under 12). Bailey has lived with other dogs and may benefit from a quiet companion. Big Ben was one of her puppies that she did exceptionally well with. She’ll steal your heart with just one visit!
