Finn has been known to climb over a 6 foot chain link fence. He has been working on recall with a beeper collar but ignores the vibrate and beep when distracted outdoors. Finn will need a home with a large fenced-in yard and interest for a setter like trees or a home with lots of property to run safely with training.

In the house Finn is calm and VERY affectionate. He loves to snuggle on the couch and in bed at night. He will play with other dogs if they initiate it.
Finn has been around children of all ages and adores them. He would do best with another dog companion.

The cutest/funniest thing Finn does is bring a toy or anything he can find when we get home. He greets us with wiggles and always wants to bring a present to show his love.
