Our Lifetime

At Finney Ranch, we continue to care about our animals long after they leave us. As such, it’s our policy to make sure our animals get the forever home they deserve. If you bring home a Finney Ranch puppy and you have sudden life changes that hinder your ability to keep your dog, we are more than happy to help you find a new loving home for your furry family member. 

There will never be any judgements as you make this difficult decision. In the case that your pup is able to stay in your area during the rehoming process, we will ask detailed questions so we can learn more about their life with you and help get them placed in the perfect home. We will also ask you to get good photos for sharing with new potential families. In other cases, we are more than happy to welcome them back to the ranch!

We will do our best to help the families recoup some costs, but our main goal is to help the puppy get into a great home. That being said, sometimes full refunds are not possible.

Contact us to find out more about the process or to get on our waiting list for an older dog that needs to be rehomed.

Moyen Poodle

Nutmeg is from Giselle and Jude. His original name at the ranch was "The Godfather". His birthday is December 1, 2021. He is about 17-18 pounds.

Nutmeg is being rehomed due to a big life-work change for his family. He would have to spend 10-12 hours a day alone and so this big decision was made in his best interest! 

He will come home to you with his leash, collar, toys, Frontline medication, vet papers, hairbrush, and bed. He loves bully sticks and Kongs filled with peanut butter. Nutmeg has gone to puppy classes and knows "sit", "down", "stay", and is very food motivated when training. He is potty trained and crate trained. He will need additional leash training as he can pull (he had a large fenced in yard before), but they noted that treats help with this!

He has been around other dogs - a group at puppy kindergarten, three neighbor dogs, their dad’s Yorkie, and he’s been to dog-friendly breweries. He is definitely the submissive one in all of those situations however but will warm up to play after some time.

Because of the family's work issues, he is no longer with them but instead with our Pack Leader Veronica in Edina until June 23. We would absolutely love for him to find his home in the Twin Cities area so he doesn't have to make the trip back up to the ranch! We are hoping to make this transition as seamless as possible for him.

F1 Aussiedoodle

Kip is from Topaz and Porter. His original name at the ranch was "Voyager". His birthday is February 1, 2020.

Information from his family: 

Kip is a big, lovable goofball. He's 2 years old and about 75 pounds. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his vaccinations. He loves belly rubs and ear scratches, and enjoys chasing balls and frisbees. He is not leash trained (that's our fault, not his. We are on acreage and never really saw the need for it.) He is great with adults, but has never been around children, so we while we think he'd be fine with kids, we have no direct experience to back that belief up.

He loves to play with other dogs, but needs to be supervised, especially if there is competition over a toy or treat. He is cautious around people he's never seen before.  He is not a guard dog, but will bark if strangers come into the property. He has never been around cats. He has a broad definition of food, so his new family should hide their socks and underwear.

He is 100% house-trained and completely reliable in the home. He is not destructive; we give him run of the house and he has never damaged anything. He is incredibly playful and loves to be the center of attention. 

It's breaking our heart to rehome Kip, but we believe it is the right answer. He is a wonderful dog, but I sincerely believe he would do best in a home without other dogs. He gets very competitive when vying for a toy or a treat. And because he is so large, it has created an issue for one of our smaller dogs.
