Being at the shelter was not Bailey's bailiwick! She arrived as a stray on July 8th at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. One year old and a smaller-sized Pit Bull mix, Bailey had the misfortune of testing heartworm positive. Despite her sweet and gentle ways, she was not eligible to be adopted because of her heartworm status. Bailey's only hope of getting out of the shelter alive was with a rescue commitment.
