VINNIE'S STORY WITH COASTAL started back in November of 2022. We were asked to rescue four 7-week old puppies whose owner didn't want them anymore.
His siblings have since been adopted, and at 10 months old now, VINNIE is still waiting patiently for his forever home. VINNIE recently returned to the Ranch from his foster family so that we could socialize him with a variety of people and also so he could play with some dogs that matched his energy and play style. VINNIE loves to play. That is what VINNIE loves to do more than anything. He is too rough and energetic for small dogs however. He sees them as his potential play buddies and doesn't like to take no for an answer.
VINNIE also loves people and would like nothing more than to lie down by your feet after he has gotten enough play and exercise. If you are looking for a "velcro dog," VINNIE would be a good candidate! Although he's a little shy at first, once he knows you he connects very quickly and just wants to be wherever his human friends are. VINNIE has a sensitive/empathetic side to him. At his foster home, if one of his foster siblngs would get hurt, VINNIE would go over to make sure they were ok. .VINNIE is housebroken, walks well on a leash, and knows some basic commands. He likes other dogs but he is still learning to share toys and treats. .
The best forever home for VINNIE would be one where the family already has a confident dog who is well-balanced and can teach him the ropes. We don't think VINNIE would thrive as an only-dog. He is too rambunctious for small children. But he might be okay with teenagers who live to spend time playing with their buddies. He has never been around cats, so that may or may not work. Given his desire to play with everything that moves, it might be a bit too much for them, though.
If you are interested in meeting this dog, please fill out our online application first. Contact us via email at info@coastalK9gsr.org. The minimum adoption donation ranges from $300 to $400. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
