Vinnie needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Vinnie's owner died and no one in the family can take him in and no Rescue could either. We stepped forwards for Vinnie to offer a Rescue place and save his life. Vinnie is neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated. Vinnie is currently in boarding kennels in Chessington

Vinnie is a 8 year old beautiful Shar pei x Staffie. A really fun character. Had a sheltered background living with an older man who recently died so not socialised & gets flustered with dogs in close proximity due to lack of skills. Loves his tennis balls. People should read up on Shar Pei so they understand the breed so not to have high expectations ref fluency with dogs. The friendly Staffie ‘people person’ shines out. Sincerity

Visit Vinnie's thread for daily updates, lots of pictures and videos. Please click to submit Online Application We will match you with a dog that suits your lifestyle, please remain open we successfully home 350 dogs per annum. We work fast to secure our dogs their loving homes.

***PLEASE HELP: We have to ask for suggested min. donation £175 at the time of adoption, to support so many dogs in kennels. We have no state sponsorship and exist on the goodwill of the public and our supporters. Rescue Remedies offers their dogs back up for life.

Vinnie is a dinky, easy, gentle, sociable little lad. I don't normally take dogs I don't know out on an extender but it was his lead and he has a way of putting you at ease immediately (I took an extra lead just in case but I needn't have worried). He's not a fan of the kennel environment but he is settling. Oh and he's stunning.

Met and walked the very dinky absolutely scrummy Vinnie today. He is nervous in his kennel and did not want to be harnessed so I popped the lead on and took him out and he was happy to be harnessed then with Bexs holding his lead for me to keep him safe. He is just adorable, very worried about whats going on but we walked with Rolo and Jen and Geraldine with Jo. Well Geraldine took more than a shine to our Vinnie goodness me she did not want to leave his side. Vinnie spent a lot of time checking Geri out too!! Vinnie is easy on the lead, slack lead, loves to sniff everything out and is so puppy like in his springy step. I loved walking this wonderful boy and it wont be the last time he is so gorgeous. Loved a cuddle and a rub down after the ridiculous rain today!! Super handsome boy. Kiss of love.gif bighug.gif

Vinnie and I had another date today. It was so wonderful because this gorgeous boy remembered me from yesterday and let me harness him in his kennel, even put his head into the harness in his anticipation of getting a walk. The thing with Vinnie is he likes to walk alone if he can and he likes to make up his walk as he goes. We had the most wonderful walk. It was horrendous rain again today and even though Vinnie is not a fan of rain he just kept on going as long as it was on his terms. He is affectionate, happy and cuddly even in torrential rain! He seemed to want to be with me and snuggled up to me and cuddled me and even gave me kisses. This boy has completely jumped into my heart, he was out with me yesterday so he knew me and trusted me. Vinnie needs to know who is taking him out and needs trust building up. He is completely and utterly gorgeous. When it was time to take him back to his kennel he cried so I sat with him and cuddled him and settled him. A beautiful happy little boy who is dinky and gorgeous. Are you looking for a cuddly companion who would love to take you for walks to show you the world and to give you love and kisses back? Well then Vinnie is your boy. His previous owner unfortunately died, but from seeing Vinnie, I know that his owner loved him so much. I am looking forward to many more walks with this little man xxxx Kiss of love.gif bighug.gif :cloud9.gif:

I had a wonderful walk with Vinnie today. He is such a sweet boy. Really enjoys his walks, he especially liked the extender lead and it was really lovely to see him trotting around. Vinnie is sooooo easy to harness and walk. He lifted up his feet to help me with the harness and walked beautifully. Such a special boy who really needs to be in a loving home not stuck in kennela. Fingers crossed it comes for him soon. Vinnie is lovelu.

Vinnie is delicious! Such a sweet gentle boy who is feeling a little sad at the moment as he is obviously missing his owner and wondering what on earth has happened! We had a wonderful walk yesterday - Vinnie loved exploring along the river bank and having a good run around on the extender lead. Lots of cuddles were had back at the kennels and we played with his ball for a while. I really didn't want to leave him - and I think the feeling was mutual!
Please Please someone snap up this beautiful boy and shower him in love, he really really will give you twice the amount back!

Re: Vinnie Shar pei x Staffie DOB 2008 Godstone Kenns

Postby Froggie757 » Thu Jan 07, 2016 1:07 pm

I collected this gorgeous boy from Guildford this morning for a trip to the vets. He was much smaller than I expected and needed a helping hand into the boot of the car and the crate for the trip around the M25. There were a few snuffles to start with then he settled on his bed for most of the 50 minute trip. We were early so I took him for a short walk on the roads round Westerham so we could get to know each other. He certainly loves a sniff and has a super cute walk, started to get quite fond of this little chap! When we finally got to the vets he was all waggy tail and excitement to be somewhere new. Took his premed jab like a good little soldier, not even a murmur, and then I left him with the nurses for the minor procedure - just hope he forgives me when I collect him later! (Husband says he may not!) I think he is going to have a few days at Godstone, don't worry Guildford walkers, I know he's going to be well looked after and cuddled. Kiss of love.gif

Vinnie has come to stay for a night out of kennels :D

He came on an adventure with me today, down to Godstone this morning, Vinnie was Mr Perfect having his harness put on and exiting the kennels, quick walk for him to do his business and he quickly obliged :biggrin.gif:
Jumped into my car and was my passenger up to Broxbourne where I was photographing some of the new dogs. He'd got a nylabone and a rubber bone in there with him and he LOVED them :D
Travelled so well and needed a quick nap after destroying the rubber bone ! A mighty fine job he did of it and it really did occupy him well on the journey ! The nylabone was undefeated you'll be pleased to hear !
Nice walk at Broxbourne on the extender, such an easy boy to walk and he clearly loves his walkies :dog-115.gif:
Then he waited nicely for me in the passenger seat whilst I photographed all the dogs and I gave him a stretch of his legs every hour and before we left to set off home so all in all I think he had a nice day ! When I got in to the car to come home I went to re-arrange the bedding so Vinnie would be comfortable and I realised the reason it was all ruffled was because he had 'buried' his nylabone !!! Quite happy with me around him rearranging the bedding even though I'd only really met him this morning !
Vinnie snoozed a bit more of the journey home but did find a tennis ball on a rope to make a tennis ball in pieces, no longer on a rope !!! Great lad the whole journey, can't fault him :biggrin.gif:

Home and into the garden to explore - fairly brief as it was dark and raining and Vinnie wasn't impressed with that, he wanted to come back inside ! Loved his dinner and happy for me to be around his bowl.

Vinnies coat is sooo shiny, such good condition and that sqidgey face of his, simply irresistible k2727.gif

After dinner Vinnie has been keen to investigate my toy rack (vegetable rack used for much more important things like dog toys !). His very very favourite at the moment is 2 tennis balls, we have a new Mr 2 Balls on the block ! Perfect at carrying them both and he's made me laugh sat on the sofa next to him, he's got his 2 balls with him, every so often one falls off the sofa and Vinnie looks as if to say 'how did that happen?' Then he'll get off and usually that makes the other one roll off too so he has 2 to round them up and collect both which he does then back on the sofa ! He's currently sleeping I think with 2 tennis balls in his mouth, think he's resting on them !!! Lovely sweet snuffly sleepy noises coming from the gentle boy :)

Great boy and so made for home life, love him :D

Big hug delivered to the lovely Vinnie :smiley-gen132.gif:

We had such a good time today, really enjoyed Vonnie's company and he's such an easy boy to have around, I've done some working and Vinnie was good as gold snoozing or chewing toys, we've done some playing in the garden, great fun had, very nice walkies, cuddles, Vinnie likes to sit with his bottom on your knee so you can cuddle him! and much laughter on my part ! Vinnie is a character !

Sad part of the day was taking him back to kennels this afternoon but he was greeted by many on arrival and got much fuss ! Bless him, such a good boy even when going back to kennels. Wish I could have kept him longer but Vinnie's not that keen on staying in by himself and I've got an early start into London tomorrow :? Will see you soon Vinnie :biggrin.gif: xxx

So here's some pics from our day...

Vinnie's perfect 'sit' for brekkie !
image.jpg
Such a cutie too


Outdoor fun...
image.jpg
Look at that blur of a waggy tail !


Vinnie's lazy start to the day...
image.jpg
Get up ? Really ?

"Ok, if there's a toy involved you've got my attention !"
image.jpg
image.jpg


After our morning walk it was time for me to do some work, Vinnie relaxed nicely, trying out various positions for comfort !
image.jpg
image.jpg
image.jpg


Came over to say hi !
image.jpg
image.jpg
Is it break time yet ?


All my fosters love this position at the top of the stairs, they can keep an eye on me in my study just next to the stairs and they can see out the long window to the stairs and watch the world go by outside :biggrin.gif:
image.jpg


Break time at last, time for garden fun :D
Mooching around...
image.jpg
image.jpg

And running around...
image.jpg
image.jpg
Zooming !!!

Back to mooching !...
image.jpg
image.jpg
image.jpg


And ofcourse some ball throwing and chasing :D
image.jpg
Go on, throw it !!!


"Got the small ball, hmm wonder if I can do 2 balls with a big and little 'un ?"
image.jpg
image.jpg
"More difficult that I thought !"


One will do...
image.jpg


"No, I'm going to try again, reckon I can do this"
image.jpg
image.jpg
Nearly there !


"Yey, done it" :D :D
image.jpg
Clever boy and VERY pleased with himself !!!
Vinnie had me in stitches with his antics and determination :lol:

All that fun means a rest is in order !
image.jpg
Tennis ball never very far away !!!


Looking out the window, Vinnie is a great passenger in the car :biggrin.gif:
image.jpg


And one more walk back at the kennels, well more like a paddle !!!
image.jpg


Vinnie has been great fun, the more he got to know me and vice versa, the more fun we had, he would hold his head over my hand whilst holding the 2 tennis balls in his mouth to tempt me to try and get them, very slobbery though so that was impossible !!! He'd wait for me to try then move his head away and want me to chase him !!! Like I said, quite the character !!!

Oh and I haven't mentioned what a good boy he was overnight, slept through no problem and at just gone 8 out to the garden for his business, all done and back inside ! Nice to know Vinnie is housetrained, another string to his bow, he has many strings does good boy Vinnie :D
