Meet Finn MacCool

Born in 2017, Finn is approximately 2 years old and is a small pup who weighs around 50 lbs. Just a petite bundle of stunning WHITE fur! He is gentle and a little shy. Positive training will help his new family bond nicely with him. Did we mention he is just a sweet boy! He enjoys going out on walks & when he gets to know you, he invites you to watch him do zoomies then comes running back to you. He likes to play the "find it" game and he also likes to sit, wait, and catch a treat as you toss it in the air. He loves rotisserie chicken sandwiches, which he considers a high-value treat. He hopes to have a fenced yard, so he can sniff and show you his zoomies. He sits nicely (with his paw up as if to say please) for treats too. Finn is a smart boy who likes to give kisses. When he gets excited he touches your hand with his paw as if to help you feed him a treat quicker, lol. He likes squeaky toys and will trade his toy for a treat with no problem. He tends to be a little intimidated by large dogs. He has met 2 large female malamutes and has done well with a slow introduction. He seems quite playful too. He's not too keen on fetching a ball but enjoys sniffing. He would do well-performing nose work. He is a quick fella, so we highly recommend having a tall baby gate to protect him from running out when you are bringing in groceries or opening the door. He has met older children and he enjoyed their calm attention and gave them kisses.

Finn longs to learn how to be a good boy. We tell him "good boy" & treat him to let him know he is doing a good job, he enjoys earning rewards! He is eager to learn. It's important to provide with Finn a calm demeanor and go slow to help him blossom. We practice letting him go at his own pace and retreating, repeat, etc. when introducing new things. This has built his confidence and he is just a great pup! He did well walking through Historic Frederick, MD and we gave him plenty of space from the loud trucks, which he greatly appreciated. He learns and adapts quickly as long as you go slow with the introduction. Positive dog training will help develop a bond and build confidence.

Typical Malamute, he likes to keep his distance from other male dogs. His foster mom simply calls him and lets him sniff rotisserie chicken sandwich as she lures him to walk in a different direction, he is rewarded with small bites. He responds nicely! He has so much potential.

Finn came to us after living with a family on a farm and being too interested in the chickens and the cats. He is good with female dogs his size (depending on the female's personality) but no male dogs, small pets, or cats.
