On thursday I read about Phinny at Savannah’s blog. Phinny’s story touched my heart as Savannah wrote her first post about him.
Phinny’s story, is a sad story, what probably had ended sad too , but fortunately there were helping hands.
People of Contra Costa Humane Society rescued Phineas, the Pittie mix, from a kill shelter. They collected donations for his surgery, because
he has been hit in his face with a bat or a similar instrument. Sorry, that I can’t write about the details, but my tears are running while I
write this post, but you can klick on the links above to read what happened to Phineas, aka Phinny.
To make a long story short, many people had a heart for Phinny, they donated money and they lined up to be put on
the list for adopting Phinny after his surgery.
The good news is: Phinny’s surgery went well and he is ready to meet his furever family.
But: now no one want’s him. I can’t believe that and I have no clue why….
So if you have a place in your heart and in your crib or if you know someone who want’s a furever friend like Phinny, please help.
If you want to know more about Phinny, you can visit Savannah’s Blog or you can visit his site at Contra Costa Humane Society
I wish I could do more for Phinny, than to write a post, but maybe THE ONE who want’s Phinny will read my post. Maybe. I hope .
MIRACLES HAPPEN TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN THEM.
He is gorgeous Easy, we are so sure someone will give him a forever home.. Paws crossed for this wonderful little chap xxooxxxx
Mollie and Alfie
Yes, he is Molly. I cross my paws too, Phinny deserves a wonderful home.
Oh Bless Easy. We hope he finds a forever home in time for Christmas.
Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly
Me to Molly, that would be the best christmas gift :o)
It is the saddest story but we do hope it will end beautifully for Phinny, he’s such a lovely chap.
I hope Phinny will find a good home and he can celebrate christmas with his furever family.
Poor thingy, hope he finds a home soon.
I hope so, wish Santy could bring families too :o)
Dear fellow. praying for him.:)
Thanks :o) I hope the ONE for Phinny will come.
What a wonderful blog for Phinny…..for him to get rescued, have surgery and be all set to go and have no forever home to go to is very sad. I hope you don’t mind Easy but I’m going to reblog your blog because I could NEVER say it better!!
Your Pal, Sammy
Thanks for reblogging Phinny’s post, if we would find THE ONE for Phinny that would be phenomenal!
Reblogged this on onespoiledcat and commented:
We meant to mention Phinny’s situation on my blog for today after reading about him at Savannah’s this weekend – but now that we’ve read Easy’s blog, we could NEVER have said it better….so we’re reblogging! If you can help find Phinny a home, please do. He looks like a sweetie!
Kitty Hugs, Sam
Sammy, that was so nice to reblog this post. If we really would find THE ONE for Phinny, that would be the best chritmas gift :o)
paws crossed for him xxx
Me too Misaki, hope chistmas is really the time for miracles :o)
Oh Easy Phinny’s story is awful but happy then sad again..we truly believe that miracles do happen and we hope with all our hearts this sweet little doggie can find his furrever home soon..before xmas would be wonderful!! bless him and all the wonderful people who gave him a chance and now lets send the thoughts out to people to find him a home.hugs Fozziemum and gang xxx
I believe in miracles and I hope he will find a furever friend and a lwonderful home. It’s so mean what some people do with animals… but fortunately there are people too with helping hands.
I know Easy..it really does make you wonder if some people have any soul doesn’t it..and then you see and hear of other wonderful people and realise it is just a few horrid creatures.
Mom is afraid to read the sad story about Phinny. We will say prayers for him to find a perfect new forever home. He is so beautiful and brave and strong. Good job, sharing about him, E.
Love and licks,
My mom too, she always said : no,no,no and her tears were running as she read Savannahs first post. I hope Phinny will find a new home and a lot of love.
Easy I don’t really want to share my humans with a dog but Phinny has the cutest face that I really wish we could have him. Paws crossed he finds the purrrrfect furever home soon. =^.^=
That was such a wonderful comment, made by a kitty for a dog. I wish people would learn something from us :o)
Poor little fellow! He’s so cute. Hope he’ll find a new home soon.
Me too, he really deserved all the love of the whole world :o)
Prayers for a beautiful ending. Miracles DO happen.
Thanks Brother, I believe in miracles and I hope the miracle for Phinny will happen.
Oh Easy, this makes me sick and so sad 😦 That poor sweet dog. I do hope someone can help him.
Me too, Cocco. I can’t imagine what had happened with Phinny without the helping hands of cch and Savannahs humans.
positive thoughts shall travel the dog to a trail of a good home, I just adpoted a PitBull, she’s 1 1/2 yrs old, tan with a bit of white on her, name is Sammi, she was about to go to a shelter and out of nowhere, I saw her picture and just knew she was for me. As for the hex around PitBulls, I do believe that one mistakes loyality for aggression!
Thanks so much for your comment and specially for adopting Sammi. I agree with you, it’s so sad that this dogs have to pay the price of misunderstanding and prejudices.
Sammi is an absolute sweetheart, so kind and gentle, she is very loyal and protective of me and when we go out for a walk, Sammi does not like strangers coming too close, she barks once or twice and then moves on, it saves me the trouble!
We’ve fostered several pit bulls and found them to be the most loving dogs. Can’t have one in our current rental house but one day… If you live in the NE Ohio area and are looking to foster or adopt a wonderful pit, please contact For the Love of Pits, https://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/. They are an outstanding organization and they have dogs looking for foster and forever homes right now.
I read your posts about this wonderful dogs :o) I hope Phinny will find a home and someone who loves him. It’s so sad that so much of this dogs have to wait so long for a new home.
He used to live in Contra Costa county years ago. However, She believes the hype and wouldn’t have a pit. Someone in Contra Costa, Solano or Alemeda counties will get him. I wouldn’t expect any help from San Francisco.
I hope Phinny will find a new family. I don’t know much about the restrictions and the conditions in U.S., but it seems that the adoption of this breed is not easy everywhere.
Thank you Easy for writing such a generous post about Phinny. The stereotyping of Pit. Mixes is so unfair. You wrote such a moving post. My wish…that everyone who writes comments “hope he finds his home”…will do just what Sammy did…reblog, share on Face Book, Tweet. Just saying “good luck” doesn’t help. But taking action like you and Sammy…THAT will put pawsitive energy in the universe for Phinny. Bless you
I hope a lot of people will share it or tweet it or tell it to friends and maybe Phinny will find a home this way. And maybe another kitty or a dog of CCHS will find a home too, when much people visit their site.
just checking back; thank you so very much for caring enough to do a whole post on Phinny. Sadly I see that out of all your comments, only 6 cared to share on FB. You are the best Easy and I am proud to be your furriend
I hope a lot of people will tell it to friends and maybe there is one who has a place in his heart and home.
In California you’re not supposed to discriminate against humans with gray hair, blonde hair, etc. You are supposed to go by character and ♥. Why discriminate against dogs because of origin and not look at their character instead?
Is that so? How sad. Here we sadly have the same thing…
I wish it worked that way Kyla. Not so when it comes to Pits and Pittie mixes My former rescue is the only one I know in this county who will pull them from the kill shelter, foster them and find them homes…which they do. We are just dumbfounded to have so many give their names to adopt Phinny and then when he is all better, not even return phone calls. So sad for Phinny.
Mom is leaky reading your post. We will pray that this beautiful fellow finds his furever home real soon.
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Greta
Me too :o) I hope a lot of people will share it and tell their friends about Phinny :o)
Miracles do happen,Phinny will get his foreverhome,xx Speedy
I believe in Miracles Speedy and I’m sure Phinny too :o) many, many thanks for reblogging the post for Phinny!!!
Reblogged this on Speedy the cheeky Rex rabbit and commented:
lets help Phinny get a christmas Miracle!
Bless Speedy! You are the most generous of bunnies ever! Phinny is desperate to have his own home, garden and humans to give kisses to
I hope he gets a home by Christmas!! Poor guy, mum would love to have him but we have no room in the house and I don’t get on with other doggies 😦
Good luck lil’ guy!!
Love Milo 🙂
I hope so that he will find a home. Maybe if we all tell it to your friends and share his story we will find his furever furmily :o)
That is such a sad story and dear Phinny deserves a happy.
I agree, Brian. I hope we will reach a lot of people and maybe someone will share heart and crib with Phinny.
Sending you hugs. Some humans are so mean
That’s true Lily. Hope for a Happy End for Phinny.
May his life find a good human, that is perfect match.
I hope he will find a home and a furever family :o)
We’re purring for a forever home soon because wishes do come true!
Miss Layla, they only come true if humans help. I hope you have given thought to doing more than purring for Phinny. He could really use some high profile bloggers like you to share him on FB and to post about him. He deserves all the help he can get. Thank you, and paw pats, Savannah and Mom Linda
Thanks :o) I hope he will find a home, he deserved to be a lucky pup.
I love his smile – can’t believe no one wants him!!
Same here. I wish I could find a home for him, he deserved all the love of the world.
Keeping everything crossed for him xxx
Me too, I hope a miracle will happen. Just for him :o)
So incredibly sad. I’m happy that the donations and support came in for the operation but why, oh why, did they not want him thereafter? He looks adorable and I’m sure the right home will come along really soon.
It’s so sad, maybe the people are busy with their christmas plans or it’s because of his breed…. But I hope when a lot of people share it and tell it to their friends, Phinny will find his furever home.
Oh Easy, I read about Phinny on Savannah’s blog too. I shared Phinny’s story on my social media thingamabops. I HOPE Phinny finds a forever home…it is just so sad that after a successful surgery now no one wants the poor pup.
Oz that’s super nice. Imagine we would find a home for Phinny together, that would be the best christmas present :o)
How beautiful and trustful dogs’ hearts can be, how brave and kind they are even after going through such cruel and terrible things! They are superior to humans, I often think. Phinny’s eyes are telling – there is a wonderful soul in this body!
That’s what I ask me too. Sometimes I feel guilty for being a human when I read stories like this. I hope, hope, hope that Phinny will find a good home, he deserved all the love.
I sure do hope he gets a home for Christmas. In my city we have a city ordinance about owing pit bulls.
Thanks for being a friend
Sweet William The Scot
