Drama AKA Finley The Survivor

Finley was found on the streets of South Carolina a few weeks ago with his face torn up and his eye bulging out of his head. Used as a bait dog (other dogs were trained to attack him for the cruel world of dog-fighting) he has known nothing but pain. His eye has been removed and his face has been stitched up. We volunteered to
foster him through a local rescue group and he was brought up to New Jersey. We instantly fell in love the minute we saw him and decided to adopt him.
Finley is heartworm positive, has missing skin, scabs and scars all over his sore body, he is underweight to where we can count every rib, and he has missing and filed down teeth. After everything he has been through, he is the sweetest dog. He lets us brush him, clean his ears, and put his coat on to go outside. This little boy
should hate humans for what they have done to him, but he just wants love and affection.  We are trying to give him a fighting chance and the life that he deserves. Currently he is battling a respiratory infection
and we are trying our best for it to not develop into pneumonia. With the cold weather it is so hard on his lungs. When he gets strong enough he will have to go through the grueling process of heartworm treatment. Thank you so much for
caring. XOXO

Hi everyone, it's me Finley just checking in… I had my first trip to the beach recently and it was a fun and scary experience. I have never seen the water before so when I first saw it I ran away but then after seeing my sister playing around I got some courage and dipped my paws in the water! I never saw sand before or the water so I didn't know what to think. I think the best news I have to share is that I am officially heartworm free! That is what they told me the last time I saw my cardiologist and she did the blood test on me. They say I will have to live the rest of my life with some side effects from the disease though but at least I won't have to have another one of those painful shots. I will go back in another month or so to see my cardiologist and get another echocardiogram on my heart and see if it has any improvement. Hope you enjoyed my picture
Finley's first time on the beach

Hi everyone! I am still doing good. This will be my first real Christmas in a warm home with a family that loves me. I'm also told that a fat man named Santa is going to come and bring me presents! I'm really excited! I love the Christmas tree and decorations and all the lights, I've never seen anything like it. I hope everyone has a great holiday and a happy new year!
Happy Holidays!

Happy late Halloween! I was superman and everybody thinks that fits me perfectly after all I have overcome. I went to visit my cardiologist the other week and she took x-rays and did an echocardiogram on my heart. She said I'm looking better than I did in August but I'm far from perfect which is expected. I go back again in a couple months for more tests and to see if my heartworm is gone. They're also trying to lower me off my steroids. The steroids make me want to eat a lot, I'm a big boy now...the doctors tell me I weigh 70 pounds! Thanks again to everybody for all your support XO XO
Superman!
