One dog's luck changed for the better when he was rescued from a high-kill shelter (WPVI)

One dog's luck changed for the better when he was rescued from a high-kill shelter.

Cathy and Keith Robbins adopted Finn in November of 2014.

"I'm an Irish catholic girl so well, he needs a good Irish name so Finnian," said Cathy.

Finn's luck began about 15-months-ago when he was rescued from a high kill shelter in Georgia.

Now, he's 18-months-old and the Catahoula Leopard dog is ready to spread his Irish charm.

"He's very outgoing. He loves people. He loves other dogs," said Cathy.

The Robbins are training Finn to be a therapy dog.

"We'll go visit nursing homes and make people happy. He can really make a difference in people's lives," said Cathy.

This little pot of gold was found by the Puppies and more Rescue, a group that has spread their rainbow to more than 3,000 dogs over the last 10 years.

Carol Hard, President, Puppies and more Rescue says, "This is one grateful dog. We want it to be a forever home. Many of the dogs have been through a rough start.

Carol Hard's eyes are smiling when she can save moms and their puppies from danger.

She says, "Mommies and babies are the first to be put down in the kill shelters."

More than 50 foster homes prep the rescues, while Puppies and more Rescue looks for the perfect fit.

"We try to match up the families, it's like match dot com," said Carol.
