Bailey came to SSC after a change in his owner’s circumstances. 
Bailey is a very friendly boy who loves meeting people. He’s very affectionate, likes snuggles and gives out plenty of Staffy snogs! 
He can sit, give his paw and drop on cue. 
He’s full of fun and loves playing with his toys, whether that’s a game of tug or chasing after a ball. 
Bailey walks well on the lead without pulling. He can be a bit nervous about going for walks at times and doesn’t always want to go very far. This has really improved during his time with us and we think that once he’s settled in a home, he will continue to gain confidence. 
He’s not reactive to other dogs and can walk alongside them calmly. He does get a bit nervous if they get too close, so needs to gain more confidence when it comes to interacting with them. 
Bailey travels well without becoming stressed. 
Bailey is well-behaved at the vets. He does get a little excited and will try to dish out the kisses to the vet, but he does settle. He was examined and blood was taken without any issue. 
Health issues: 
Bailey is in very good health. 
He has some irritation in one ear and is currently on ear drops for this. 
He does have a large skin tag on his elbow that we would recommend removing. It’s not anything sinister, but does sometimes catch on things and bleed. SSC would cover the costs for this to be done. 
Ideal home: 
Bailey has lived with a cat before, so could be rehomed to a home with one. He’s not reactive to other dogs, but does show signs of being a bit nervous if they get too close, so we’d prefer him to be the only dog in the home as he does need to gain more confidence around them. 
He could live with children 10 years plus. He can be bouncy when he gets excited (he does calm quickly) so a family would need to be aware of this, but he has lived with children in his previous home. 
He could be left for up to 4 hours at a time once settled into his new home. 
Standard information: 
Bailey is microchipped and neutered. 
He is currently in kennels in Stoke-on-Trent, but he can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet him at least twice where he is now. 
There is a non refundable adoption donation of £120 for Bailey and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
