Finn was found on a gravel road curled into a ball and waiting to die. Someone had thrown a pan dulce pastry at him that was found next to his curled up body. He was nearly catatonic when he was taken to the Veterinarian. Finn was severely dehydrated, malnourished with scars and bite punctures all over his body. His mouth and nose were covered with old and fresh bite marks so severe that he had broken nasal bones and several severe punctures into his sinus cavities. His face was swollen more than twice its normal size. The vet staff did an amazing job with emergency care for this sweet, feral dog and he began to heal. At first, Finn was scared of everything and now he has blossomed in foster.
Finn is a 1 year old Pit Bull Mix weighing about 43 lbs. Finn is very food driven and some good nutrition, lots of treats and time spent just sitting on the floor with him really helped him come out of his shell and he is very bonded with his foster mom and dad and their adult sons. Finn is a quick learner and has learned to sit, come, leave- it, and off. He is crate and house trained. He loves mealtime, toys, bully sticks and his soft comfy dog bed. He walks pretty well on a leash and is learning to run after and catch toys. He is good with the fosters older, calm dogs. He is amazingly limber and does hilarious full body yoga type stretches. He is crated at night and crated when his fosters are not home. He likes to have his bed and toys in his crate and has never destroyed his crate or his soft dog bed. He is a bit of a scaredy- cat with anything new, but time and exposure helps him adjust to new things. Finn is very eager to please and very loving. He needs a home with calm dogs, and would do well as an only dog too.
