Finn was found by a Good Samaritan and taken to an Indiana shelter. He had never been on a leash and would freeze and scream like you were killing him. The shelter taught him to walk on a leash , sit and shake in one week. Finn has probably never lived in a home before coming into rescue. He is wonderful and has come along way but will need a home that has the patience to help build his confidence.
Having this boy in our house has been nothing short of a blessing. He is such a sweetheart and abundantly affectionate. It hurts thinking about what his life was like before he made it to the shelter, and then to us. I can't imagine what he went through and hate picturing him out in the world all alone, on the run as a stray. It's overwhelmingly heart breaking, but the gratitude and love he shows surpasses all of that.
In such a short amount of time Finn has mastered crate training, basic obedience, sharing and enjoying space with both people as well as other animals, and learning our potty routine. He is a champion and doesn't even know it.
I couldn't be more proud of him and happy to have him safe and sheltered as part of our family until we find him the perfect forever home.
From Finn’s first foster home: Finn is very gentle with our kitties, playful with our dogs, gentle with our 4 year old son and overall amazing with both Zephen and I. I feel Finn would excell in any type of home as long as his parents have the time, patience, clear understanding of his needs, and endless love for him. He deserves the love he gives returned to him, tenfold and then some.
Finn needs a home that has a physical fence and experience with anxious dogs.
