Flynn

flynn_december_1_2013 (2)Flynn is a sleek black dog with two different colored eyes: one eye is sky blue, the other eye is brown.
The color of an eye of a black dog can change our perspective of the dog.  For example, when he turns and I see only the blue eye the contrast is stunning as well as giving off a bit of a chill.  The blue eye has a wary look to it.  However, the brown eye has the opposite effect, the brown eye fits with a black dog and is comforting.  Two different eyes, one dog.

Flynn is sleek and slender with short black hair,  sometimes he reminds me of a greyhound.flynn_december_1_2013 (3)
He probably has some husky or other breed that howls as every now and then he will give off a soft, faint howl as if he is echoing his distant ancestors.  He does not do this often at all and when he does it’s soothing and sweet.

When Flynn first came to our home it was touch and go as he seemed so afraid of first me, then my husband.  He would bark the bark that said, stay away.

And he is great with both of us, greets us with wagging tail and kisses.
Like those two different eyes, he is not the same dog as the one that first came to us.

When he first came to us he lifted his leg to pee all the time.  In fact, so much that he lived out in the garage for the first month, well, the growling at us didn’t make us want to invite him in either.
That is also all gone.  He has not lifted his leg in over a month!  And he has been good in the home.  Again, he is not the same dog as when he first came.

Flynn is what we call in the world of rescue, a challenge worth the time and effort.
Flynn is going to be a great companion dog for someone who is willing to put some training and time into him.  He is a quick learner and will work for food (treats).

Flynn is great with dogs and enjoys playing with Wiggles.
He is really good with the cats, even when they tease him when he is in his crate and they do tease him when he is in his crate!  Bad kitty’s! :)

Flynn is crate trained and does really well in his crate.   Except for the rare soft howl, he is quiet.  When he does howl, I promise you will stop what you are doing and quietly listen.flynn_december_1_2013 (9)

Flynn would do best with someone willing to participate in a dog obedience class.  There is no reason why he would not be good at basic obedience, rally obedience, agility and more.
He does enjoy fetching too and likes to carry around soft toys so there is potential there too.

But most of all, he will be a nice companion dog.

Flynn is about ten months old and weighs 43 pounds.
