Bailey is HOME!! Bailey is HOME!! Thank you!

What wonderful news is this!!??
3 weeks later and about 50km from home!

Hi everyone!

Kerry and I are EXTREMELY happy to announce that Bailey is HOME safe and sound!!!!!! YAH!!!!!!!

She was found by Bernie and Sheila, a lovely couple in Mayfield Park (roughly near SouthGate shopping mall south of JHB city centre!!!) (have a look for Mayfield park on to get an idea!). I have no idea how Bailey got so far south, but she is definitely a tough little cookie and survivor! Bernie and Sheila were great, they rescued Bailey from between their fence and a neighbouring golf course fence, dipped her for ticks and even fed her garlic polony to ward off Biliary! Bailey even made friends with their two little sausage dogs! She has a few cuts and scratches and is quite skinny, but nothing serious and nothing loads of treats can’t fix! Bailey couldn’t have landed with a better couple! A HUGE thank you to Bernie and Sheila!!!! And thank you to all of you that helped us!!! Kerry and I were truly blown away by everyone’s support, we can’t even begin to express our gratitude!

Please forward this to all your friends to which you forwarded our original “lost dog” email to and all those who helped.

Have a GREAT weekend!!!!!!!

Tail-wagging regards from
James and Kerry and Spencer and Bailey !

  7. I am so happy for Bailey and her family. I know what it is like to have a beagle come up missing (my Marcie used to go walk about), though never strayed that far, but was as good at finding help.

    Hugs to the rescuers!
