The Story

Finn is pretty famous in Canby, Oregon.  He is not just a dog to us, but is a beautiful soul.

On the night of February 24th, Finn was hit by a driver that didn't stop. He is hurt pretty bad, and this fund is to help his owners pay for the vet fees, which will be pretty expensive.  His left side hip is busted up and they don't know how bad it is... he might lose his leg.

If you can donate a few dollars, myself and Finn's owners, Mr and Mrs Brian Anderson would be forever grateful.  Thank You.

A little history on Finn, in early December Finn got of the house and ran away.  Finn's owner posted on all the community group pages, in Canby, OC and Molalla, the sightings started coming in and after about 3 weeks, they found the area that he was hanging around.  They did everything they could think of to capture Finn, but he wasn't haven't any of it.  Brian's wife, went out every day in the snow and freezing temps, to try to coax Finn to coming to her, he would just lay there from a distance and watch her.  She sat out there for hours a day, when we were all cozy in our warm houses during the snow storms, she was out there trying to let Finn know he wasn't alone. Then one day, his wife was running around the barn and Finn was chasing her, it was then that Brian had an idea and got a rope. The next time they ran thru Brian managed to get the rope around Finn's neck and finally he went home.  The next couple of weeks, Finn wouldn't leave Brian's wife's side, he was attached to her like glue.

However, about 2 or 3 weeks later,  Brian was gone and his wife had to bathe her mom who had a broken wrist, so the dog was in the living room with her father. Her father is in his 80's and legally blind, he accidentally let Finn outside thinking it was his dog.  He was devastated as was Brian and his wife.  So the hunt begun again, however this time he stayed around their house and came back every night, there were many sightings of Finn, mostly around Township road in Canby.  People posted on the local group page, Canby Now, every time they saw Finn.  Then last night, he was hit.  For updates on Finn, please see the Canby Now page where Brian is letting us know what is going on.

Brian and his wife are the most dedicated pet owners I've ever witnessed, they love Finn more then anyone could imagine, however, Finn was abused by his prior owner, and has severe trust issues, that is preventing him from coming to those that love him the most.  Finn, is loved by many, and has a whole town standing beside him cheering him on.

Finn is looking better and becoming more active, he keeps trying to get up on his own which is great but also bad since we don't want him putting his whole weight on it. At this point he's been acting like a sick child and constantly wants wifey's attention, he doesn't let her sleep and if he does it's only for about an hour. Another thing he has figured out is that if he whines when she leaves the room she will run right back in, he acts hurt till she goes to inspect him then he just wants loves and to play and acts like nothing is wrong lol He only does this to her. She tried sleeping on the bed next to him and he kept sitting up and shoving his face in to hers forcing her to stay up, needless to say if and when he naps so does she lol.......He also love his sponge baths and he gets quite a few because he still doesn't have control and doc only wants us to take him out no more than every 4 hrs because doesn't want to take a chance of hurting him ,,,, we have to put a sling around his chest and one around his stomach to support his weight ... not easy with this big boy.... but still happy he is home no matter what :)

Finn was a little stinker all night.... We gave him a bone to chew on and he was very happy with this.. Around 1 am he started tearing his pee pad and kicking the gate . Wifey told him no and gave him his bone ,which he chewed on..well around 20 min later heard him kicking the gate and this time he seen wifey looking then grabbed his bone and put his head as close to her as he could so she could pet him.... Well this went on all night until 7 am when he decided to go to sleep and I had to get up..... Now i don't know if he was doing it to get her to pay attention to him or once he realized she seen him he would grab his bone like he wasn't doing anything.... Other than that he has slept most of day
