My Story

Date into Rescue: 7/7/18 (he has been here a while - sometimes rehab is measured in more than days or weeks, sometimes it is years)

Reason for being in rescue: Owner passed away - but Finnick and his canine family were neglected before the death.  Far too many dogs in far too small of a place and no cleanliness or routine care (good food, clean water, grooming, or vet care) The dogs were in the home when the owner had passed away. We don't know how long they lived with no humans to help them, but they were in terrible condition.  It has taken a long time to turn this little family around but we take the long view.

Special Needs: none noted

What kind of home would be best for me: We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner that is familiar and willing to work with skittish dogs.  Like his name sake, Finnick is a true survivor. It will take someone with skill to change his stars.  He will never be the gregarious social butterfly that a normal pet will be. But somewhere, someday, we hope to find someone who will love Finnick for himself.  

A happy, gregarious and well balanced small dog in the home as a buddy is a must for Finnick.  

What is my personality like: Finnick is a dog that wants to be loved but does not know how to accept it. Whenever our back is turned he likes to run up and lick the back if your leg, just like his brother Gale! Finnick is going to need to learn how to be a normal dog. Right now he does not know any basic commands nor does he know how to walk on a leash. He will take treats but not from your hands. Finnick gets along great with other dogs and especially his brother Gale. Finnick has been here since 2018 and he deserves to know what a home is!

How do I act when I first meet new people: Skittish

Tips and Tidbits:  Estimated birthdate 7/12/2011

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.

Thank you for considering CPR!
