Vinny - Handsome Staffy Older Gent
« on: April 18, 2013, 18:08:18 PM »
Vinny



Breed - Staffy
Sex - Male
Age - Approx 8 years young
Dog Friendly - Yes
Cat Friendly - No 
People Friendly - Yes
Child Friendly - Yes
House Trained - Yes
Neutered - Yes
Food - Loves his food
Fostered - South Wales

The minimum adoption donation for Vinny is £150.

Vinny is currently undergoing a 14 day assessment and will be ready for rehoming from 14/6/2013.  Applications are welcome during the assessment period.

Update from foster carer:

When Vinnie first arrived to my home he was very unsettled restless and stressed after having had 2 operations (including being castrated) and being in kennels but over the next few days he settled down very quickly and is bonding with me nicely.

He is responding to training quickly is easy to walk (doesn't pull on lead at all),  he takes treats very gently and is very good with people and other dogs.  He was very gentle and well behaved around my 9 month old nephew as well.

He seems to need company at the moment and doesn't like being left on his own so we will be looking for a home where people are around a fair amount of the time so he has company.

He went to the vet on Monday to have his mouth checked as he had a rotten canine removed and it will take a while to heal properly but he was fine at the vets.   When weighed at vet it showed he is already starting to gain weight.

i am very happy with him he is a pleasure to foster however he can be a cheeky monkey at times won't come when called unless you have a treat handy, begs for food and follows u if have food - understandable as he was very skinny when he came into our care and values his food highly. Over time as he realises he's getting food at regular intervals this will improve.

More updates from his foster carer to follow as they get to know him better but for now Vinny is loving being in a comfortable home and would so love his forever sofa.


Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in Vinny. Approved applications will be home checked.

Details of our adoption procedures and adoption application form are http://www.fourpawsanimalrescue.org.uk/adoption_procedures.html

Was lovely to see Vinny at the vets today for his check up.  His coat is looking so much better and he is putting on weight.  He seems really happy with his foster family ..... I love staffies whose tails spin in circles!

Vinnie is responding to his training well at his foster home he went to the vet today and they said he looked like a different dog very healthy nice shiny coat and he was 16kg and now is 18.6kg so he is gaining his weight back to normal now. he had his stitches out from his castration and had his mouth checked which still requires anti biotics but is improving. i walked him in the park woods near my house and he met a 15week staff puppy girl and he was so gentle playing with her running around and dancing together was nice to see. will post 2 photoes of vinnie tomorrow when i can download from camera properly.
