Hi, I’m Finn! I’m 3 years old and weigh 65 lbs. I was listed as a German Shepherd mix, but some people have said I look like a Black Mouth Cur. I’m a happy but mellow guy with a Type B personality. I get pretty excited about going for a walk initially, but I settle down. I don’t mind going for car rides- usually I look out the window and fall asleep sitting up. I’m very sweet and great with adults, kids, dogs, cats, horses…pretty much everyone! My favorite things are to have my chest scratched and to chew on my nylabones. I’m housebroken and have learned a few tricks (sit, down, and stay). If you give me a treat I will take it very gently.
I have primary epilepsy, which is a seizure disorder. I’ve been with PAWS since New Year’s Eve, and have had two seizure episodes while the vet tried me on different dosages of phenobarbital. I now am taking phenobarbital and levetiracetam (generic Keppra). My new family will need to be prepared to give me my pills at least twice daily and be sure not to miss any. I will also need to go to the vet every 4-6 months for routine blood work. If you have any questions about my medical needs, feel free to contact PAWS to ask. I don’t mind taking my pills because it means I get to eat treats! I hope I can find the perfect family who will take good care of me.
