About Finley - Located in Washington
Adoption Fee: $495.00 - Under 12 Months Old Fee
Finely is a true puppy Maligator. He was scheduled to be euthanized in a central California shelter. He was found as stray and is adjusting really well to home life. Foster mom cannot believe why someone would not want him since he is really just a big energetic puppy who just wants to be loved!
He is very sweet and green. He is learning very quickly and knew his name w/in a few tries. He is starting to learn Sitz, Platz, Bleib and Place. He walks pretty nicely on leash. He's working on potty and crate training. He loves his handler so much that he recalls easily.
He is sooooo excited when food comes out he can barely hold still. He's doing great with hand feeding and figuring out engagement. He's learning to wait for his turn. He is motivated by food, affection and toys. He loves to tug. He is more focused on other dogs than balls when they are out playing.
He plays well with dogs and makes new friends at stores and while on walks. He can get a bit over excited when on walks but learning how to walk by other dogs. He loves to wrestle but can also back off when the other dog doesn't like his playstyle. He's great around food or toys, no resource guarding at all.
He is very much a velcro dog and doesn't like leaving the handler's side. He would love a playful fur-sibling b/c he loves to wrestle and run around with him. He isn't really that interested in toys other than how they relate to other dogs. He would rather grab a ball and get a dog to chase him than focus on the ball itself.
He does also have an off switch - after he's been exercised and mentally exhausted.
He will make someone very very happy! He just needs someone dedicated to show him the ropes! He loves running through the forest, so someone outdoorsy and/or active would be ideal for him! He is pretty agile even in puppy mode and can jump! He doesn't try to jump fences just likes leaping.
He is untested with kids but he is quite mouthy and jumpy so would say no young kids. He is untested with cats but had fun chasing chicken [not to hurt just looked like he had fun chasing], so best no cats.
All dogs come with a Fi Collar and one year subscription.
