    Finn's Story . . .
    Original:  “Finn is just a very FUN boy!”

    Finn was relinquished to MAESSR after an incident that made his North Carolina owner realize he needed to go to another home with more structure.  A couple of weeks ago, Finn bit a friend of the owner while the two of them were trying to remove a thorn from his paw ― clearly an extenuating circumstance.  This incident caused the owner to know that she needed to find Finn a new home.

    MAESSR will be requiring two series of obedience classes from Finn's new family.  It is felt that obedience classes will help the bonding process and help Finn learn more skills that a good Springer needs to know.

    Finn is a wonderful boy that loves to do everything.  If his foster mom is going to sit in her chair at the computer, he jumps in first.  If his foster mom is walking anywhere, he walks in her flip flops as much as she does.  If she sits on the couch, he jumps up to cuddle with her ― and he’s a great cuddler!  He is truly her shadow wanting to do everything she does!
    A fun-loving boy, Finn gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home and plays nicely.  He LOVES toys and will entertain himself with a toy or share with another dog or his people.  He is just a very FUN boy!

    Housetrained and crate trained, Finn sleeps either in his crate at night or in his foster parents’ bed.  When his foster parents are out, Finn is given free roam of the house and does fine.  He didn’t get the text message that Springers are supposed to keep four on the floor when in the kitchen.  As a result he counter-surfs occasionally.

    At the vet and the groomer, Finn was a very well-mannered boy and he was a very good passenger riding in the car to get to those venues. 

    Young Finn would love an active family who would want their handsome Springer to do everything with them!  His forever family needs to bring the structure and training into Finn’s life that he needs to make him an even more terrific boy!
