Our HRI rescue

Hi,
Thought you all might like an update on Finnegan, our new boy.

He just loves our grandchild, Stella and follows her everywhere and plunks himself right down next to her. (Of course we watch them carefully).

Here are some pics. As you can see, 22 month-old Stella's current favorite toy is the ex-pen. She also likes to crawl into the dog crate and close the door. LOL.

Finnegan is a wonderful dog. Of all our 3 dogs, he likes children the best.
We couldn't have asked for a better dog.

Thanks to HRI!

You scared me at first when you said you thought they did the right thing. Thank goodness it didn't mean what I feared. I'm so happy for him and for your family. Finnegan did indeed begin again. Give that boy a little kiss from me.

Me too!
Hopefully now that other family will have time to start training their kid how to treat animals correctly!

I don't know their situation, but we're glad he's our dog now.

He gets tons of attention here, since my DH is crazy about dogs and so am I.

By the way, that slogan, Finnegan, begin again that you coined, gets said a lot around here! I say it to him all the time, as sort of a nickname

Agreed, I am sure Finnegan could feel the "intent" and he defended himself. Kids need to understand how to treat animals and parents NEED to teach them. I am happy Finnegan is happy

I know someone who "rescued" a dog because she was having accidents daily
Well that dog never had one accident in 2 years of being in the new home and was completely house trained in one month

Sorry. When I read it quickly and you said you thought they did the right thing, I thought you were going to say he bit someone (poo poo poo). And BTW, I don't think you can fault a dog for biting someone who sat on him.

How lucky for Finnegan that he got a family like yours! BTW, your little granddaughter is precious!
