Vinny Love the Mixed Breed


Dog Breed: Unknown

Vinny Love is a mixed breed dog I adopted from a high-kill shelter in California. He was listed as a one-year-old, stray, Chihuahua mix but he was impounded with a dirty collar that was way too small for him so I'm sure he was someone's pet at one point in his life. He was extremely reactive towards other dogs when I got him but through love, patience, socialization, and years of training together, he has transformed into a wonderful companion with a talent for trick training. He persuades every single person he meets to adopt their pets and is a wonderful 'spokesperson' for shelter animals, especially those with behavior issues. He is mighty but only weighs about 10 pounds full-grown; he loves raw Brussel sprouts, and he has an obsession with licking people's hands.
