Coat length:
Vinny is a 2 year old male chihuahua mix. He was pulled from a high kill shelter after being owner surrendered with 3 of his brothers. The home he came from was a hoarding situation. While Vinny does not appear to have been abused in any way-he was socially neglected and is having to learn what human touch and interactions are besides just being fed and watered. Vinny loves to be pet- and comes to you for attention if you are sitting however i send he is extremely nervous and doesnt know how to relax and retreats to his crate for safety. He has come a very long way in a short period of time! He is now jumping up on the couch for pets and love...

Vinny has a split ear that is healed - we believe it came from fighting over resources in his previous home. Vinny gets along well with other dogs his size but doesnt seem to care for big dogs- hes very fearful of them  he is truly the sweetest boy and only wants to be loved- hes just not sure how that works so he will need one on one time to teach him! He just discovered toys...and he loves them- but he doesnt necessarily want to share but he will play a good game of tug-o- war!

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
