Despite being abandoned in a school parking lot with no water when it was over 100 degrees, Vinny has never lost his sense of humor. He is a comedian at heart and often channels the likes of Kevin Hart! So if you are looking for some fun, happiness, and laughter, Vinny is your guy!
Vinny is still young and impressionable so will need clear boundaries and structure to set him up for lasting success. With his desire to please, continued training should be fun and rewarding for all. He craves human attention and affection so having someone home more often than not would be ideal.
Vinny is dog social but can be too much for some as he is often a little torpedo of speed. Despite being young and being undereducated with other canines, he does respect correction by other dogs. Having a neutral dog of the same or larger size would be great (but not required) for him to continue learning appropriate play, as well as ensuring introductions are slow and controlled.
Vinny is looking for a moderately active family who can help him build confidence, share life's adventures, and help him shine! This bouncy, goofy boy has an ear-to-ear grin just waiting to shower you with love and laughs!
