Awww, poor guy. He looks a little shabby but I'm sure you will have him straightened out in no time . I'm sure with lots of cookies and happy he will come around! How is he getting on with the other dogs?

I was impatient and wanted to add some pictures of Finn that I took today!

Poor guy is always shaking.

What a beautiful face. Glad he found you, sounds like he has a long road ahead of him but he's finally found someone to give him that chance.

Grats and best wishes

Thanks all! Yes and no. He is beginning to come out of his shell a little bit.. he now plays with the other dogs and will chase toys and such, but still spends a lot of time under the table hiding. He will now come out of the crate for me though, which is awesome. He is getting MUCH better on a leash, and is getting some muscle in his hind end now. He can actually do stairs! WHOO!

We are still having a lot of trouble with his ears. Unfortunately, he is still very not very trusting and difficult to handle, so cleaning and putting ear drops in is not a fun job, and often doesn't get done well because he fights it so bad. Josh and I are debating having the vet do a sedation so that we can properly clean them, trim up the hair around, and get a really good dose of antibiotics in there. This would most likely be the best way to go about doing a blood draw for a thyroid check as well as a heartworm test.

It is still very up in the air on whether he is a permanent addition, or whether he will be with us long term until a suitable home is found. He does not seem to have drive for waterfowl, as Josh brought home some dead birds over the weekend and he wasn't interested. We are currently talking with our Griffon breeder to see if he will help us do an evaluation.

Another update on Finn. A fellow Griffon owner and friend who set up the rescue for us stopped by three nights ago. I really wanted to see what she thought about him, and to see if the way he was acting was normal for the breed. When she looked at him, she said no, and that he looked like he may have more than an ear infection. Turns out that he did.

We got a quote from a vet for way more than we could handle at this time, so our friend has taken him for the time being, as she gets free vet care for rescues. Finn apparently did awesome at the vet, and has accepted everyone great at her house. He has a UTI, extensive sinus and deep inner ear infection, potential start of pneumonia. He will be on extensive medication and will be meeting with a behaviorist tonight.

Once he is better, we will re-evaluate how he fits in our home and go from there. I feel so bad for the big guy, as we did not realize how bad this infection had gotten (or was when he arrived).

Poor guy, but at least he is getting the help he needs. And if he is not meant to be in your home than I hope he finds a wonderful home meant just for him.
