Finn - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA.

I decided to foster Finn after seeing his picture on facebook - something about his sad, brown eyes just grabbed my heart. I see pictures every day of dogs in need of a good home, but for some reason I couldn't sleep at night I was so worried about him. I took him in as a foster, got him the medical care he needed (15 teeth removed!) and filled his belly full of wholesome food so that he gained much-needed weight. After a good haircut and a bath, he was ready for adoption! But, I wasn't ready to let go. Last week, I decided to make it official and adopt Finn as an early Christmas present to myself.
