“Hi, my name is Finlay and I’m a sweet girl who loves good cuddle!

I’ve been adjusting to life with my foster family and I’ve been getting along with their resident large breed dog. After a short learning period, I have adjusted well to my new routine, including crate training and I haven’t had an accident in the house in a long time.

My foster family has been crating me when they go to work, and I’m happy to do that as long as I get treats! Watch out when you let me out of the crate because I tend to get the zoomies! I’m really great in the comfort of my foster home, but I’m nervous meeting new people and dogs so I need proper introductions to both. I have been reactive on leash when I see dogs, but my fosters introduced me to their dog with a slow introduction and I did great – so I may do better meeting dogs in a proper off leash scenario in a backyard.

I would appreciate if my furever home would help me work through some of my fears of new people! Because of this I should go to a home with no young kids, and ideally a yard of my own – no condos please – a house would be best but a townhouse with a yard may be okay too! I’m about 4 years old, so I like a good balance of rest time, a daily walk, and some play time in the yard.

I came to my foster home very skinny and they have helped me put on the pounds. My favourite thing is to snuggle on my fosters’ laps and get belly rubs! Once you are in with me, I am good with you for life as I love the people that I trust!

If you take me home, I’ll be your most loyal companion!” – xo, Finlay
