We are currently fostering Finn because his owner died unexpectedly. Finn was adopted in July of 2023 from WAIF. He was picked up as a stray in May of 2023 in Coupeville, WA.
Finn is a black Australian/Shepherd/Poodle Mix. We became his foster parents on 2/2/204. He spent two weeks with us and a week with another couple who were interested in adopting Finn, They felt he was not a good fit based on the following two incidents: he had a minor fight with their daughter’s male dog and he growled at their grandchildren one time. The couple fell in with Finn, but these two incidents concerned them so we brought Finn back to our home. We would certainly keep Finn, but our house is already filled with two full-time dogs, and three grand-dogs that are with us constantly! As wonderful a facility as WAIF is, we felt in the best interest of Finn we would become his temporary foster parents.
Finn is very well trained, he is house trained, he understands basic commands – sit, stay, and down. He does not climb on furniture or chew on items left on the floor. He does not bark other than when people arrive at the house and quiets promptly. He does not shed – the poodle in him! His fur is beautiful and extremely soft. He loves to cuddle, run, and play fetch!
