Finn-ADOPTION PENDING's Story...
We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable pup. They're so new and fresh with every possibility open to them. That's the case unless they're in a high-kill shelter that is dismal and quickly runs out of space. This is the situation that Finn was put into at just about 12 months old. It's not unusual to see opportunistic breeding with Golden/Labs ...and if all doesn't go perfectly...out they go into the street or to a high-kill shelter. Such was the case with Finn. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great Texas rescuer in saving Finn...she could see that his temperament was so loving and sweet that she couldn't allow him to be euthanized. He was immediately brought to be vetted and temperament tested - and was pronounced a healthy guy with an extremely sweet and lovable personality.
It turns out that Finn, at only about 1 year old, is so wonderful and cooperative that it's been a fun and rewarding experience for his foster mom. She reported to us that Finn is absolutely a lovebug and very social and well-adjusted in every way. She described his personality as typically Golden...sweet and so lovable while being active and playful in a very positive way. She describes Finn as a just about perfect family companion that's a natural for Colorado. He will be overjoyed with hiking and loving the outdoors with his favorite people. Like most Goldens, Bentley is extremely loyal and very in love with those who are kind and and loving to him. He's like a blank slate...open and curious about everything around him. If Finn continues to be properly socialized, he will become a well-adjusted and devoted adult companion. If he is treated kindly with clear behavioral guidelines, he will become a well-behaved dog who respects his people as his leaders. This is the kind of family we're searching for for Finn. Since he will be approximately 45 lbs when full-grown (just a perfect medium size for hiking Colorado trails), we also feel it's very important that Finn is provided with exercise and mental stimulation. He will be a perfect size to enjoy an active lifestyle.. playing and snowshoeing (he'd love that) in the Colorado mountains. We'd also be thrilled with a family who spends lots of time at home and chooses to include a fuzzy companion in their activities. It's wonderful that there are no worries about Finn in the home...he appears to be almost perfectly housetrained and respectful of human's possessions. Finn also has so much fun the car and lies quietly while looking forward to the great adventures that await him. He can therefore accompany his family just about anywhere.
Finn will be arriving on transport in Boulder on 3/20/15. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/.
