Profile Information Finley bonds very strongly with his humans. He is very affectionate, loves cuddles, and being as close as he possibly can to his people. Despite his size, he still believes he is the perfect lap dog. Finley loves the outdoors, from being outside playing fetch with his favorite toy fox to going on walks and runs with his foster mom. After his long walks, Finley enjoys sunbathing by the window and belly rubs where he demonstrates his excitement with the cutest bum wiggles.Finley is crate trained, however only for short periods of time up to 4 hours. In the crate Finley enjoys playing with puzzle toys and his Kong filled with his favorite treats. He loves people so much, he wants to be with them all the time. Therefore Finley’s perfect home would be with a family who is home more then not, potentially working part time from home.Because Finley is dog reactive, he requires a family that is able to dedicate the time and financial resources to continue with behavioral training. Finley’s new family must also be committed to socialize him with both people and animals, positively reinforcing good behavior to ensure he can continue to make progress and build up his confidence. He is a very quick learner, and loves to please. Finely will continue to thrive with the appropriate support.  We stipulate that a condition to his adoption will be to enroll him in behavioral training with a positive reinforcement trainer to assist in the transition and set him and his family up for success.
