"FINN" hoping he gets a great active home - Border Collie Puppy

July 1, 2015

Yes, Finn wants an active home!  But did you know that dogs under a year old shouldn't be "jogging" no less "running" for more than a  short duration? They are still developing and hard exercise can be harmful.  sorry, no links here, but there is lots of research to back this up - lots of daily exercise - but short duration - not the pounding, jumping, leaping or repetitive things that can later cause problems. 

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

My name is Finn and I'm ready to find a new family. I am a very smart and active young lad, but am so eager to learn. The nice people that found me had wonderful things to say about me too! They only had me a week, but I lived with kids and another dog and did very well with them. I wasn't a huge fan of the neighbor dog though. Sometimes I would growl at him through the fence and if we saw each other on leash. I would certainly like to take things slow when meeting other dogs. I'm also very interested in the neighborhood kitties and find it fun to chase them, so I probably should live in a home without the feline type. My favorite toys are the rope ones and boy do I love to tease with them. The shelter is recommending reward-based classes to help us get started on the right paw. Although I am very smart, I do still need to learn manners. Like I said before, I am eager to learn and I hope you are too! Please don't hesitate to come and meet me. I am about months old and weigh pounds.
