Vinny is the sweetest little nugget that will snuggle next to you while you work, follow you around like a puppy, give you kisses, and make piggy sounds while enjoying Kongs. All in all, he can be pretty, okay extremely, lazy with moments of zoomie energy.

Loves: Snuggling, having his ears rubbed, taste-testing (veggies and fruit) while you cook, sleeping close, fetching tennis balls, doing puzzles and games, and snacking on Kongs.

Smarts: Sit, down, place, wait for meals, housetrained, crate trained, leave it, and wait for invitations onto furniture (most of the time).

Playstyle: Vin has a very puppyish exuberance in a big, handsome adult body. He is learning how to dog and read cues from a few of his very close, confident dog friends.

New family: They should be patient, calm, and low-key. He is a strong and awkward little guy so would do best around teens and adults. They might have a home with a yard where he can chase balls, sunbathe, and exercise his front paws, which suffered nerve damage when he was younger. His paws don't bother him, but do give him his unique strut!
