VINCENT

Vincent is a neutered male, approximately 1 year old. He is up to date on his shots, can hear, is heartworm and lyme disease negative. We have named Vincent after Vincent Van Gogh because we think the great artist painted his one blue eye and one brown eye. Vincent is one good looking guy and has the temperament that every dog lover is attracted to – he is gentle with small children and he was fostered in a home with a toddler. He is wonderful with people, is house-trained, and crate-trained. Vincent is intelligent and has already learned some basic obedience.

Vincent’s story is sad. His owners moved away and abandoned him on the property. Vincent survived on his own for several months out in the wild before finding the Scott’s who immediately provided him vet services, food, and a loving temporary home. When the Scott’s rescued him, Vincent was at less than 50% of his optimum weight-–around 26 lbs. With their compassion, he gained weight and was up to about 44 lbs.

Vincent's next stop was a local kennel where he was able to mix with both cats and other dogs, and he got along with both. Unfortunately, like many Dalmatians, Vincent became very depressed in the kennel and once again was losing weight, so he was moved to yet another foster home.

While Vincent still needs a little more meat on his bones, he has begun to actively play with the other Dalmatians in his current foster home and is comfortable enough to roll over for tummy rubs. Vincent rides quietly in the car, takes care of his toys, and doesn't chew up his bedding. This young dog deserves a loving, gentle, forever home where he will be allowed to bloom into a wonderful family pet. If you have a large fenced yard, perhaps the last move he will ever have to make will be to you.
