Vinny is a 10 month old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Pointer. He is unfortunately arrived into a world where no one wanted him when an irresponsible owner failed to get their dog neutered. Most of the litter were rehomed locally, but two of the pups, Vinny and Luna, are without any interest. We’ve now teamed up with the rescue the pups are under to help give them the extra push they need to try and find their forever homes.
Vinny is around 25kg and needs an active family who enjoy being outdoors. He won’t have any trouble keeping up with an energetic lifestyle and would love the opportunity to run and explore in the countryside. He’s a confident, sociable and affectionate boy who trusts humans and enjoys being in their company. He would be a great addition to a household who are keen to find an adventure partner.
Vinny has been great with other dogs since birth and was previously in a foster home for six months with a female Rottweiler, who he got along really well with. Generally, this breed type are best with dogs of the opposite sex, but Vinny has never behaved adversely towards any other dogs.
He has not been tested with cats so we’re looking for a home without them, but he has lived alongside children before aged 9 and 10, so we feel confident he can be adopted into a family with kids. He was excellent with them. Vinny’s ideal home would be based outside of the city, providing him with plenty of opportunities to explore green spaces.
He loves his walks and is great on the lead, but he also needs a home with access to a secure garden so he can go outside and play, snuffle about in the grass or potter about whenever he fancies. He’s an intelligent boy and learns new things quickly, so he would do really well with some basic training.
He would also enjoy opportunities to go on long walks which allow him to scent and follow his nose, or higher energy activities such as canicross or trail running. Vinny is a brilliant young dog with so much potential, so we’d love to see him get the opportunity he deserves. Vinny is currently based in Cyprus and has a clean bill of health. He is ready to travel once he finds his forever home.
