Bailey hasn’t had the best start to life and hopes someone can give him the loving home he deserves. Watch our video of him playing with his favourite toy.

Bailey, who is six years old, was brought into the RSPCA by a cruelty inspector.

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier was living in the same home as 21-month-old Ginge who we ran an article about recently.

Bailey is described as ‘super sweet’ by the RSPCA and loves human company.

Joy Wilding, animal care assistant, said: “He is a really affectionate happy boy and he just loves cuddles, that’s my favourite thing about him.

“He loves trying to sit on your lap as often as he can and he is great at playing with the rope toy which he has the most fun with.”

The adorable pooch is ideally suited to a family where someone is home most of the time because he feels anxious when he is left alone.

Zoe Barrett, animal centre manager, added: “Bailey likes being outside in our field and going on walks with our staff and volunteers.

“He is currently undergoing treatment for a skin condition and is responding well to the medication. If required, the centre could offer financial support to the new owners to continue with his treatment.”
