Information on Vinnie

3 years, Male, Medium Mixed Breed (Collie size)

Vinnie is a very timid and shy dog that needs a very patient home to take them on. When Vinnie arrived they were traumatized by the transport and hid away from us in fear.

Vinnie is a dog that will require time and patience to come out of their shell and learn to ‘be a dog’. They are a project but the rewards from adopting a dog like Vinnie outweigh the struggles they may have at the beginning.

Vinnie is a dog that has never wagged their tail at us in the rescue and they have never loved a human before. When taking on a dog like Vinnie you become their whole world, they finally learn to trust humans and learn that not all humans are scary.

Vinnie cannot currently be touched at the rescue and so has never known a kind hand. The day that you can touch Vinnie will be an incredibly special moment for you both…

Vinnie is not currently lead trained as they are so frightened. Staff will advise you on how to teach them to walk on a lead when they are ready.
