A beautiful wheaten Scottie, Bailee, is a big boy at about thirty pounds. He has had a rough time, but has a lot of love and companionship to give to the right forever home. His original owner was an older man who had an accident and could no longer take care of Bailee. Instead of calling Scottie Rescue, Bailee was sent to a North Carolina shelter. He became stressed at losing his home and being dragged off by a stranger, so he bit the animal control officer.
