Help Finn breathe a little easier and walk a little better in the hopes he will find a forever home.

Meet Finn, an adorable two year old basset hound/ chow chow mix. Fin is a member of the Humane Society of Williamson County, or HSWC. Finn has an amazing personality! He has a beautiful, fluffy red/brown coat and enormous brown eyes! Not only does he have the looks, but he’s friendly, lovable, and just wants to be your best friend! Despite his great features, there’s one you can’t miss, his unique feet.
Finn has what is called carpal flexural deformity in his front legs. This painful condition causes his legs to bend outward, twisting his feet at an awkward angle. Other terms for carpal flexural deformity are bowed legs or floppy paws. Not only does it prevent from enjoying a nice run or game of Frisbee, this angular deformity causes Fin significant pain. Despite it all, though, you’ll find Finn in his kennel, batting a tennis ball back and forth to himself and playing happily.
Luckily for Finn, there is a solution! Surgical correction, Finn’s only option, is a major procedure in which some of the bones in his front legs will be broke then reset to align the bones correctly. Unfortunately, this procedure doesn’t come cheap. The surgery itself is expected to run at least $2000, with an additional $1000 to cover recovery, rehabilitation and physical therapy as Finn learns to walk again. Finn is in great hands at HSWC, but coming from the shelter, $3000 isn’t just handy for conditions like these.
Your generous donations are the first step in a huge chain reaction: If we can meet these financial goals, Finn will have his surgery, coming out one happy pup, then people will not pass him by!
Finn is an inspiration. He’s my hero! He never gives up. Despite his challenges he perseveres. Finn is all you can ask for in a dog. So please, donate. Each dollar is another day Finn can bark, chew a bone, roll in the grass, and be a dog.
The least we can do is help him in the hopes he will find a forever family. They are out there somewhere!
