She was surrendered by her owner when the owner moved and thought that Finney would be uncomfortable with the move as well as not doing well in another apartment environment.


Finney loves all people. As far as she is concerned, the more people, the better the party. She loves to have company and has never met a stranger. Her foster mom refers to her as, “a charmer”.

Finney does not like other animals and is quite anxious when they are around. The foster has been working with her and a behaviorist to lower the anxiety level when she sees other dogs and then act more appropriately.

She is not a dog that will go to the dog park, doggie day care, join in on a jog or trail hike or go for a walk with another dog or group of dogs. Oh no, this girl is interested in lying by the fire with a gaggle of toys and people around. She also does need “girl time” on a feather comforter (see picture). Finney knows what a good Kerry deserves.


Finney would thrive in a home where there is someone home with her during the day (the homes she has been in have all had 8-5 or more worker bee hours), with a securely fenced yard where she could play with her toys (we understand she is very fond of toys) and interact with her humans. In the home, she is simply a love and wants to be with her “people”. Kerry experience would also be required. She needs a knowledgeable Kerry person and a soft lap!


Finney has “been around” while in foster care and met many people. They all describe her as a lovely dog and a real love of a gal. Any number of the people she has met have volunteered to be a reference for her.


Other Dogs: No


Cats: No


Children: Maybe

Children older than 5 probably ok.


Finney is in good health.


Finney needs persistant training to lower her anxiety level around other dogs.  This may be a constant requirement.

Finney is coming along well with her training and is very happy. Her health remains good. She also has great taste and has taken to a very expensive sleeping bag.... that is now out of sight and out of reach!
