Recently a lot of you have been emailing me asking about my dog Finn, so I thought it was high time I dedicate an entire post to him.
I adopted Finn (his full name is Finley) back in October of 2009 off of Petfinder. He was originally placed in a shelter with a group of Cocker Spaniels, but when they realized he wasn’t of that breed (DUH!), they put him in a kill shelter. I don’t know how anyone could ever put an animal in a kill shelter, I find the whole thing absolutely appalling. Thankfully I saw Finn’s photo on Petfinder just in time and saved him from death row.
He arrived in NYC on my birthday and he practically leapt into my arms, and from that day forth Finn and I have been almost inseparable.
While they tell me he’s a Dachshund/German Spitz mix, I believe that there is probably a lot more mixed into my darling puppy. But, regardless of his breed(s), he’s the most lovable dog I have ever met. He’s playful, snuggly, funny, and more than anything I could ever ask for in a dog.
Now take a second to support the PUPS Act (here).
Currently only breeders who sell their dogs to brokers or pet stores are required to be licensed and inspected by the USDA. The PUPS Act would require any breeder who sells or offers to sell more than 50 dogs annually directly to the public–including over the Internet–to also be licensed and inspected. The bill also requires that dogs get proper exercise and spacious living environments.
This is an incredibly important act and with your help, dogs around the United States could be happier and better cared for.
