Bailey's adoption donation is $450, and he is being fostered in the Central Ohio area.  He has been neutered, microchipped, received his rabies, distemper/parvo, bivalent canine influenza and Bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms and started on prevention, as well as flea prevention.  He has also had a dental cleaning with no extractions.

Bailey came into rescue through no fault of his own when his owner could no longer care for him due to health issues. Bailey was initially nervous, but has since made great progress and deserves to have a special home of his own. Bailey loves to be near his people, and generally is a laid back guy until meal times. He loves his food, but he's already lost a couple pounds, and might need to lose one or two more.  And, did we mention he likes to chase squirrels? He takes it personally when they wander into the backyard!  He walks on a leash (even sitting patiently for you to put on the harness and clip the leash) and will do business on a leash, pulling at times, but overall enjoys sniffing everything. He knows a few basic commands, but his big requirement is lap time during TV viewing and relaxing.  He will jump right up to be with you. He's done well on housetraining when kept on a schedule. Bailey would do well in a home where he'd get to walk and play regularly, and he could be an only dog, or part of a low-key pack.  He loves the outdoors, and is able to mostly politely watch the wildlife from inside. Because of his startle response, he'd do best in a home with no children.

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website like Petfinder, Adopt-a-Pet, or another search engine (the OFP website is, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the  individual webpage of our dogs , you will be able to get more information each dog.

Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Our Adoption Process

The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here:

Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog.  We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved.  It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.

Special Requirements

Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence.  Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets. 

The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at  The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information.  If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed.  Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.  No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.   At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.

Out of State Adoptions

We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.  We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
