Bailey the Boxer Mix has been coming to WTPR since she moved to Minnesota with her owner, Bev, 1-1/2 years ago. This seven-year-old social butterfly loves to visit with her friends during her visits and makes sure everyone is having a good time. Bev calls her “the gatekeeper”!
Bev tells us that Bailey is a total momma’s girl. And don’t let her sad “Eeyore” expression fool you – this happy girl is always up for any adventure!
Bailey loves everyone and everything, from humans and felines to canines alike. And her patience and gentility know no bounds, whether a child is hanging all over her or her tiny Shih Tzu cousin wants to play – you can trust Bailey to enjoy the moment.
Bailey may be an easy-going social butterfly, but she also knows how to use her size to her advantage. That’s right!
Bev said that if you want this sweet mountain of a dog to move, you better have some food around, or she won’t budge. Bev learned this the hard way when they went on a sightseeing bus, and Bailey laid down in the aisle, refusing to move so other people could pass!
Fortunately, another rider had a cracker on hand, and Bev enticed 100-pound Bailey to move. Bailey can also go through a bully stick in five minutes flat.
But what’s the best part about having Bailey in her life?
“She doesn’t care what she/we are doing as long as we are together. Really the same as owning any dog,” Bev said. “They make your life whole; they give you purpose, motivation, and unconditional love.”
