About Bouncer
Bouncer, who her foster parents now call Bailey, is a sweet girl who was very shy when she first came to TSR. Her badly matted coat was shaved and with some time and attention, she has now blossomed into a beautiful and loving dog. She gets along well with all of her foster dog siblings and loves people - and especially being petted. She likes to play and is usually surrounded by dog toys. Bouncer is a young dog and still a chewer so anything of value needs to be kept out of her reach, especially shoes. She can be quite a barker, especially when people are coming or going. She enjoys being outside but can usually be found with the other dogs or following her people around the house. At bedtime, she wants to sleep on a pillow beside the bed close to her foster mom. Bouncer was heartworm positive and has now finished her treatment. She will need to be re-tested in 6 months and the results shared with TSR.
