Baylie’s Rescue Story


My name is Baylie, and I’m a Great Pyrenees/Border Collie mix. My mom rescued me from an unusual situation when I was 4-5 weeks old. I was found by a nice man who scooped me up when my canine mom dropped me from her mouth while running.   What made it super scary was that we were running along the side of a rural highway, and there was a big bad dog chasing us.  My canine mom tried her best to hold on to me really tight, but I was just too heavy.  But that’s okay, she did her best.  A nice man driving along in his truck saw me, stopped his truck and scooped me up really fast so the mean dog couldn’t get me. He tried to help my canine mom too, but she ran. The nice man couldn’t keep me so he took me to where my human mom works to see if anyone would be willing to take me in.


When my human mom and I met, it was love at first sight. I knew she wouldn’t be able to resist me even if I wasn’t very pretty at that time. I was muddy and covered in fleas, ticks and lice. I must say, I was a hot mess.  But none of that mattered to my mom. She took me home, gave me something to eat and drink and then gave me a bath to try and remove the first layer of grime.  She then whisked me away to see my vet lady and the nice folks at the Ark Animal Hospital.  I must say, they all made a big fuss over me.  Then they gave me a medicated bath {{{{shiver}}}}, and I received my vaccinations.  It wasn’t so bad. Afterward, my mom wrapped me in a towel and took me home where I ate more yummy food, met my new family, including my feline sister, Smoki, and I slept safe at last in my new mom’s arms.   My sister, Smoki, is a work in progress. She doesn’t like me too much, but I’m growing on her day by day. I just don’t understand why she won’t play with me.  She makes this odd hissing sound that I’m not familiar with and sometimes she even takes a swipe at me with her paw.   I wonder, will I hiss like that when I get older? Just so much to learn.

My first meal in my new home

 Mom said there must be a reason God  plopped me in her arms on that day. I often wonder where I would be had the chain of events not happened. I think mom has resigned herself to keeping me for ever and ever. Yippee!!!   Mom calls me her wild child! I am blessed to have found a loving home. I have a good life with loads of canine and two-legged friends, plenty of food in my bowl, lots and lots of treats and a warm bed. What more could a pup wish for?

Thank you for being my friend and following my journey.
