Meet Finley! This beautiful girl has some very special needs, but I’m confident there’s a very special family out there somewhere for her. Here’s what her rescuers have to say about her:
Finley is 3 years old and about 45 pounds. She is a mixed breed.
Finley came to us a very fearful puppy. We have done a ton of work with her, but she is afraid of almost everything. She is jumpy at loud noises, like if you drop something.
She is ok with us, but even after years of trying, she is still very afraid of strangers.
Finley is a big barker. She barks at the neighbors, she barks anytime she is afraid of something.
The time she is most at ease is when she is playing with the other dogs.
I know it is a stretch that she will find the right home, but maybe one is out there.
Her home will need :
A fenced in yard, as she is a runner. If she ever gets out, I am not sure you would ever catch her. Also, she likes to play fetch, and needs a yard for that.
At least one other dog in her home
A quiet, rural setting
A quiet home with no small children
And a super patient, loving person that understands it will take a LOT to win her over.
She will need to be adopted locally as you will have to come several times to spend time with her before she goes to her new home. She will run and hide when anyone comes to visit. She will not just decide she is not afraid of you. She will be a lot work, but she is a sweet girl.
She can’t be boarded if you go on vacation, so she will need a dog sitter that will take the time to get to know her.
These are non negotiable, as we want a successful adoption for her so that she won’t be returned. That would awful for her.
Finley is currently a guest of New Digs for Dogs Rescue in North Haverhill, New Hampshire. If you’re lucky enough to be nearby, please contact New Digs for Dogs to find out more about Finley and all of her friends. Send an email to [email protected] or fill out an online application.
