Shetland Sheepdog

Birth Date

November 12, 2018


Blue Merle


Finley is a happy, active, sweet guy. He is very smart and learns new things quickly. He loves any type of ball and playing fetch with his dad Louie, who is also a therapy dog and a member of the Troupe. He loves people.


Finley has been going to obedience classes since he was about 10 weeks old. He is currently training to show in his first obedience shows and will continue to train and show throughout his career.
Awards / Titles Finley passed his Canine Good Citizen Test at the age of 5 months old, he was the youngest dog the evaluator had ever tested.

How do you know that your dog loves therapy work?

Finley is just starting out in therapy dog work at the age of 1 year old. But I know he has a love of meeting new people and genuinely enjoys being around others and being petted and cuddled. I believe these traits will make Finley a good Therapy Dog.
