THIS IS VINNY….and he is something!!  This gray/white, 16 lb, 4 yr old Lhasa mix (see below) was shaved to the bone at Riverside Shelter.  They didn’t even give us a chance to groom him!  Look at the picture below and you will see what he will look like….well, until he is groomed!  Big  difference!

Vinny is a VERY busy boy!  If you are looking for an active, ACTIVE, dog, who can go running, hiking and keep up with you….this is your guy!  Vinny needs to be in a home where he gets exercised to get some of his energy out.  When he settles down, he is such a love.  His favorite thing is to get his belly rubbed and you will think he is a different dog!  He loves to explore outside and is a great, very playful dog.  He definitely needs training, and we are working on walking on a leash.  You can see how he is interested in dogs of all kinds on our walks…and he would be great with a bigger dog!  He’s like an athlete….very strong body and very healthy!  A yard is an absolute for this boy!  Kids over 8 yrs old welcomed!  Remember, hair grows back!!  Are you looking for a partner to get you into shape?  He is!!
