Finn: application received, please check back
Angeles knows most of her neighbors. One day she saw a man named Peanut, the local neighborhood drunk, walking around with a small pup about 4-5 weeks old. The pup was very skinny with a large belly (parasite belly) and was covered in ticks. Angeles asked him about the pup and Peanut explained that the dog was his. He was going to care for it and then breed it. She told him she thought he would have a hard time doing what he wanted as the puppy would need lots of care and he replied that he would take great care of him. She explained there would be costs associated with taking him to the vet and went on to tell him that she was part of a group of volunteers that helped street dogs by getting them healthy and finding them great homes. She continued to educate him about dogs and eventually, he admitted that he didn’t really have a home, nor money to pay for food, and he agreed that she should take the pup. The next stop for Finn was the vets and boy did he need it. This sweet guy got a bath (no more ticks or fleas), got tested for the scary illnesses (no moquillo or parvo – yea!), and had blood work done (positive for ehrlichia and very anemic). He went home with Angeles to a life where food, shelter, care and love would always be available. Finn is now 15 months old and weighing 53 pounds and is ready to find his forever family. He is a loving, active and playful pup. This guy has energy to burn and would do great with an active family (left to his own devices/boredom, chewing is a favorite pastime). Finn is learning leash skills nicely, and is house trained. He was fostered with dogs (he loves to play with them) and cats (he likes to chase them as he wants to play….they aren’t so interested in playing with him). We know that Finn will be a great addition to one fun, active, loving family…will it be yours?
