Robyn Burns, mom of a Hungarian Vizsla named Finn, took to Twitter to post a plea for her 10-month-old pup. You see, Finn is like any other young, friendly, happy-go-lucky pooch; except for the fact that he’s already a whopping 75 pounds!
After one particularly depressing walk, Burns posted on social media to ask the other pup parents they see on outings to give her big friendly baby a chance!
“Infuriating and heartbreaking when folk pull their dog away from Finn just cos he’s big he just wants pals to play with. Look at his wee face he wouldn’t hurt a fly. Play with him please x”

She added honestly in a separate tweet:
“Must add I do take him away if a dog is teeny cos he’s just a big clumsy goat but someone took their staffy away from him and it’s like they should understand “

(After all, he’s still learning how to coordinate those giant, floppy paws!)
Little did this dog mom know that her posted plea would be liked over 67 thousand times, re-shared over 7.5 thousand times, and would draw in friend requests and tweets from dozens of other pooches!

Check out some of Finn’s new friends – including many who can relate!
Same problem. same breed. He gets excited with every dog and wants to play with them but the owners think he’s too hyper. He never barks at dogs, bites. He’s only 2 so he’s still young but he’s just a big 2 year old. pic.twitter.com/MGgaLKXdt9

Burns’ post must have been read by many dog lovers near her hometown, because the day after she tweeted it, she wrote an update about a successful outing with her massive dog:
“Update: got him along the shore and he’s been playing with so many dogs. Finn’s a happy boy “

According to The Scottish Sun, the Burns said:
“People will have their reasons maybe if their dog is injured or old but I just felt like on one particular walk it happened a lot of times in a row and I was sad for Finn so I tweeted about it.
I really never expected this reaction. I wish there was a way to gather all the dogs together for a dog party.”
Congrats Finn! We hope you make tons of new friends.
