Finn is an estimated 8 year old, 50 lb terrier mix. Finn was found chained up in horrible conditions, sad and unloved. His 'home' was a falling apart dog house and his 'freedom' was a five foot chain.
Upon entering foster, Finn didn't know how to receive human touch and he had never lived in a warm home before. What is beautiful is he now seeks attention from his foster and will do the cutest lean in when you get him in the right spots. He's really loving the family home life with regular meal times and opportunities for pets! He is most often seen laying on the ground near his favorite 'human'. He's a chill dog who loves to go for short walks. He is low activity overall.
Finn has a medical diagnosis, with Cushings Syndrome. Symptoms include incredible thirst, unsatiable hunger, pott belly, significant hair loss, and heightened arousal. He is currently on medication which is successfully reducing his symptoms. He should have a full life with continued medicine treatment and monitoring.
Finn went from no home skills to fully house trained, crate trained, and knows a few basic commands. He is currently living with three other dogs in foster but can be unpredictable especially with male dogs that are unneutered or a dog that shows any sign of aggresion towards him. He will also guard his food from other dogs but has no aggression to humans near his food. Finn is not aggressive towards humans at all, however his foster did get nipped in the leg when breaking up a fight with him and another foster who growled at him. The bite was not intended for the foster mother, but it is important to know that for this reason Finn will need to be your one and only for his remaining years.
I know there is someone out there who would love Finn in his final years. Let's find Finn the loving forever home he deserves!
