Help find Bailey the puppy a home

A PUPPY who was left at a boarding kennels after his owner never returned to collect him could be put down unless he finds a new home.

Bailey, a 12-month-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, is currently living at Country Boarding Kennels at Slip End, Baldock.

The pup was taken there by his owner, who paid for two weeks homing. That was five weeks ago, and despite repeated phone calls and letters, the owner has never returned.

Jeremy Burrowes, who owns the kennels, said: “This appears to be a sad case of a dog owner who is unwilling to face up to the responsibility of owning a pet and has tried to pass the problem over to someone else to find a suitable home for his dog.

“Ultimately, if a good home cannot be found, the last resort is that he will have to be put down.”

Jeremy has tried repeatedly to get hold of the owner, who claimed when he dropped Bailey off that he was temporarily homeless. Because of the lack of response, Jeremy has now decided that Bailey needs a new home.

The pup would ideally suit someone who is used to dogs. Because of his age, he can be trained to be alongside other pets.

“He probably wouldn’t suit a total novice, so someone who is used to dogs would be best,” Jeremy added.

“He’s quite good natured, and he could be trained because he is quite young.”
