    NEW PICTURES AND VIDEO 2-11-2013 FINNICK is doing much better; just look at his snowy day video to see how nicely he walks! I am pleased to introduce you to Finnick, one of the sweetest dogs I have ever had the pleasure to foster. He truly loves everyone! He calmly greets strangers at the front dooror on the street, and will cry for a moment when they leave. He adores my two little ones, and loves to sit on laps. Finnick gets along well with other dogs, and lived with a dominant small breed dog in his last home. He walks nicely on a leash, is housebroken and crate trained, and has excellent manners. This calm, handsome AmStaff really is the ideal family dog. Sadly, his last family did not take very good care of him. His ears were terribly infected when he was rescued, he is 15 pounds over weight, and he was spending 14 hours a day in a crate. Additionally, his ACL's were both torn years ago and never treated. As a result of this neglect, he has developed arthritis and muscle atrophy throughout his body. In less than 2 weeks in our loving home he has begun to lose weight and made great progress towards healing. He is getting around much better, and he is thriving with pain management. As he continues to lose weight and build muscle, he will feel even better. We are unsure of his age, but estimate that he is 6 to 8 years of age. A&S desperately wants to find Finnick a family to spend the rest of his years with. He doesn't need much ongoing care, just exercise, a glucosamine supplement, and his pain medication as needed. (The rescue is willing to commit to paying for his medication for the rest of his life) Finnick will do well as a companion for a single person or he would love to live in a home with kids. Really, all he needs is love :) FIINNICK will only be placed into a forever home that is located within 1.5 hours of Lake & McHenry Counties in Illinois...(sorry, NO exceptions).** If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill out an application:Adoption Application <http://www.aandsrescue.com/AdoptionApplication100109.doc> Once your completed application is received, it will be reviewed, and then a volunteer will contact you. *We cannot do anything until we receive your completed application*
