Pup and Circumstance: Rehab Center Graduate Flynn is Ready for a Home

The ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in Madison, New Jersey, is the first and only facility dedicated to providing behavioral rehabilitation for fearful, undersocialized dogs, such as those confiscated from puppy mills and hoarding situations. In our regular “Pup and Circumstance” feature, we introduce the Rehab Center’s latest graduates in hopes of finding each one the loving forever home they deserve.

Pup and Circumstance: Rehab Center Graduate Flynn is Ready for a Home

We’re so proud to announce that Flynn, a three-to-five year-old mixed breed dog, has graduated from our Rehab Center and is ready for a forever home! Flynn came to us last year after being rescued from a hoarding case in South Carolina, where he and 66 other dogs were found living in muddy water.

A “staff favorite,” Flynn can often be found relaxing in his fluffy bed, watching the world go by with his trademark mixture of curiosity and worldliness. He earned his nickname, “Prince Flynn,” due to his affinity for extra soft bedding atop his “throne.” He is reserved with people he does not know well, but comes alive in the presence of his good friends and is a playful, funny guy.

Flynn enjoys walks in quiet areas and would love to play with canine friends. He is snuggly with his favorite people and would be thrilled to share your couch while you catch up on the latest movies. His ideal family will understand his shy, reserved nature and have the patience to bring out the jester that lies beneath his quiet exterior.

Though Flynn was in relatively good health at the time of his rescue, he is suffering from double hip dysplasia—a painful joint condition—and is scheduled to have hip replacement surgery this month. Flynn would love to secure an adopter before his surgery so he can recover in a loving home. He is looking for a quiet household with another dog or two so he can play once his hips feel better.

If you are interested in adopting this wonderful dog, please contact the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center at (973) 377-5609 or [email protected].
