Pet of the Week – Vinny

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

HARTFORD - Vinny is a neutered pit bull, estimated to be anywhere from 3-5 years old.

He is said to be like a Jeep -- built like a truck, but faster and more fun to drive. He is a big, clunky boy, but is silly, fun, and is always smiling looking for a good time.

Vinny will require a physically strong handler, or someone with good "pack leader" skills that can manage him mentally. He gets along with other dogs for the most part, but could be a lot to handle for a dog who doesn't like physical play.

He needs an active home--somewhere he can go for walks and even hikes or bike rides.

Earl is not an aggressive dog, but his size and strength are definitely something to consider for a home with fragile occupants such as small kids or little dogs. He could go in for a smooch and end up giving you a black eye by accident! He is just a bull in a china shop.
