6/19/2017 This dog is AMAZING and for any family who has the patience, he will bring great rewards.  His basic mode of operation is "let me be brave and fearless and I will give you all that I have".  The first week he was confused, timid, jumpy and extremely cautious. So I let him make forward progress at his own speed. (Introductions are also aided and abetted with treats) The last 2 times he met someone new I used my Caesar (who has never met a person he didn't like) to be the icebreaker. Bailey sees the wonderful reception that Caesar gets and he automatically drifts toward the new person.  Other than, he fits right into the group here...shares the dog bed with Bo and/or Caesar, forces me to love on three boxer heads with just two hands and in general I don't even know he is around most of the time....he just fits right in ....HENCE...the problem...he is becoming way too comfortable here....his forever home will be blessed with lots of love when someone steps forward to claim him.
P.S. He would be very good with a companion dog but he too mature for a rambunctious buddy and he has the MOST WONDERFUL boxer floppy ears.

05/24/2017. Bailey is a striking flashy fawn who was surrendered by a family that has another dog. Introductions with my two boxers went very well although he tends to relate tp my seven year old boxer and to my Bo's great disappointment is not really into  boxer wrestle-mania. Housebroken, no chewing, no counter surfing, stays off the furniture, no food aggression, comes when called, and takes treats very well which has earned him boxer bonus points. He can be a bit timid meeting new people and we have let him take his time to make the initial contact. Once he has figured out that you are AOK, his cautious demeanor fades away. Will update after we see the vet on 6/1.
