Kane County Animal Control Pet of the Week

If you're looking for a dog with high energy and a personality that just won't quit who knows how to cuddle and get pets, then you might be interested in Finn, a 2-1/2-year-old German shepherd owner-surrendered to KCAC.

He's a great dog! Very sweet. Absolutely loves people!

He's a real corker, that Finn! His energy level is off the charts so getting him trained and socialized is an absolute must. He'll definitely keep you on your toes!

Without training, Finn might decide to take matters into his own paws.

It's hard to get him to focus, unless, of course, you have a squeaky toy. He loves his squeaky toys! His favorite game is keep-away with staff members. He'll give the toy back to you, but he's always ready to grab it again.

When he gets excited, he can be a little difficult to control because he doesn't calm down very easily. His new family will definitely need to work with him on learning manners and boundaries.

Other dogs make him a little nervous. In some ways, it's kind of cute because he reacts like a shy teenager out on his first date. When a larger dog approached him during a temperament testing exercise, Finn attempted to hide behind the handler.

Because we don't want to stress him out, kennel staff suggests there not be any other dogs in his new forever home. That way he will have plenty of opportunity to focus on understanding his boundaries, training, and learning how to play without accidentally hurting anyone.

Despite the fact that Finn may need some training and a little socialization, he is definitely ready to find his forever home, hopefully with a family ready to teach him everything he needs to know to succeed in his new home.

Finn is ready to fill your life and your heart with all that German shepherd love.

Congratulations to both Symphony, the 7-month-old kitten surrendered to KCAC along with her siblings back in February and to Dopey, a 6-month-old black cat, for finding their fur-ever homes. Symphony is making her own music in her new home and Dopey was adopted to a wonderful family along with another kitten from KCAC.

We hear that both kittens have found their individual rhythm in their respective homes and are enjoying the life of playful, energetic and curious kittens. And that's how it's done!
