Baya is affectionate with everyone she meets, and even smiles with happiness when she sees her human friends. This sweet, calm girl is always up for cuddles and affection, or for exploring new places. Born in 2006, Baya came to the Sanctuary from an animal shelter in Texas. She's prone to ear infections, so she needs a little help to keep her ears clean, and she's on a special diet for dogs with food allergies. Because Baya is so well behaved for medical handling, the weekly allergy shots she gets are no problem.

Baya does need to be the only dog in a home, but with the training she's had at the Sanctuary, she can pass other dogs calmly during her walks. This happy, mature girl would be so grateful for somebody to love. Won't you consider giving her something to really smile about, like a new home?

As part of our Single* pets adoption special, Baya qualifies for free adoption, and a free flight to her new home!

*Single pets do best as the only pet in the home.
