This robust, sturdy boy is Finnigan. He’s high spirited, high energy and high fun!!  He can keep you smiling whether he is flipping his toys skyward or running full on while chasing and being chased by his playmates.

He loves the outdoors.  Finnigan loves his toys and his chewies.   You will often find him with either in his mouth. He loves to shake and toss them around.

Finnigan loves to play zoom in the back yard with this foster brothers as well as going for walks. In the afternoon he loves to curl up on the sofa with his foster brother for a nap. He is a good eater who loves his food and he is not food aggressive.

Finnigan loves men and woman (and according to the shelter where he came from, he loves children too). Finnigan is excitable, meaning that if everything is quiet he can be too but if something sets him off…he goes with it!!

This otherwise healthy boy, does have issues with seizures that don’t need medication. They appear to be stress related. This rambunctious boy does have a tendency to bark while playing but he is coming around. He is learning that barking to get his way is not how most dogs play. It’s still a work in progress.

Finnigan is so keen to play that he bothers other dogs after they have clearly let him know that they are not interested in playing. It’s possible he does not recognize the signs and his foster family is working on helping him demonstrate respect.

He can use a pee pad, but does his business mostly outdoors. His marking has been minimal considering he lives with another dog who is a marker. He uses a pee pad again as a marker but usually does his business outside. He has not yet learned how to let you know it’s his time to go out, he just follows his foster pack. He has had a few accidents for this reason.

Finnigan’s perfect home would have a large fenced yard and possibly another high energy dog as a companion. He does show signs of some separation anxiety. Finnigan needs  a family with a strong knowledge of dog behaviour. Finnigan is just a sweet guy just looking for someone to love him. He’s just learning the getting hugs and kiss from his foster mom are great.

If you would like to adopt Finnigan, please fill out an adoption application. You can purchase a sweater and/or blanket for him, or any of our other fosters dogs. Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our fosters by making a cash donation towards their care.
