Meet Vinnie! 

This easy going boy found himself in rescue as the result of an owner surrender.  Even with the sudden change to Vinnie’s routine and the home life he once knew, he is coping well.  Vinnie is 10 years young and in the time he has been under our care, has proven to be a great little dog.

He gets along well with everybody – humans, dogs, and children alike.  He enjoys cuddling, car rides, walks, and going to the dog park to play chase

with his fellow canines.   Thankfully his easy going nature has worked in his favour during this time of transition.


Vinnie’s housetraining seems to be in order.  He needs to be taken out regularly to ensure his success.  He is not pee pad trained, but is being trained by his foster Mom to use them so this is a work in progress.

Vinnie LOVES his food.  He gobbles it up in the blink of an eye!  Vinnie’s Foster Mom has come up with an ingenious solution to slow him down a little.

She feeds him in a muffin tin and has met with some success in slowing him down from inhaling his meals.  We recommend a food bowl designed specifically for this purpose to help Vinnie eat with a little less gusto!

If you are interested in adopting Vinnie, please fill out an adoption application.  You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her or any of our foster dogs. 

Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel  for any of our fosters by making a cash donation towards their care.
