THIS IS VINNIE….a handsome, brindle (under all the hair!), 20 lbs (more of him to love) Shih Tzu.  He is NOT fat, just on the larger side of the breed.  Vinnie and Luca were mates, but not bonded.  Vinnie also came from a home where the family loved him dearly but believed that he would be happier in another environment where he gets a lot more attention.  Vinnie is more independent than Luca, but really would love being with another dog who will play with him and engage.  His mom describes him as a “Labrador wannabee” as he is an unusual furchild who loves the water!  He is a bit more gregarious than Luca and loves to play…and if you can’t find him, he will probably be perched on the arm or the back of your couch, perusing his “kingdom!”  Vinnie is a bit of a social butterfly who likes meeting and greeting everyone!  He is very quiet but will alert you if you have a guest or someone at your door!  He is loving, kissy, happy and would be wonderful in a home with kids, another dog and a family who will make him feel like the king he is!  Does this sound like your home?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
