Finney “Finn-TASTIC” is how my husband refers to Phin. So it is hard to believe that he is still waiting for his furever home. He is a great dog. I feel like I have a shadow; this four-legged guy follows me everywhere! Phin has been trained well in his past life. He lays away from the table at supper time; he does not beg for “handouts.” While he has jumped onto our bed a time or two, he generally stays off of furniture, preferring to lay on the floor. Phin is crate trained and does very well. We have tested leaving him out of the crate during the evenings/weekends for 6-7 hours, and he has been perfectly behaved.
Phin likes to travel and LOVES his car rides. In May, we went on a road trip up to NE Iowa for a weekend at the farm. Phin enjoyed the peace and quiet of the country. While he did not interact much with them, he did well meeting the “country dogs.”
Phin has now been cat-tested and he showed no signs of aggression. He actually did not seem to show much interest at all in the cat. The one area that we continue to work on is his fear reaction when he hears/sees another dog. He is not aggressive, but does become excited.
Phin has been working with a trainer in order to teach him and his people how to help him feel safe, secure around strangers and dogs he encounters outside his home. Phin has made a lot of progress with training. We are looking for an adoptive family who is interested in and committed to his continued training. Phin needs continued help learning how to be his best self. A home with physical fence is a requirement.
Phin is a loving and loyal dog who will make a great addition to your home!
