Introducing Vinny!

Hi There! My name is Vinny and I am a 1 year old Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier mix (MUCH more Yorkie than anything with my personality!). Don't mind my unruly, long locks - I have an upcoming spa day, so stay tuned for "after" pictures! I can be uncertain when it comes to meeting and trusting new people, especially men, (I was never socialized in my previous home), but once I spend time with you and get to know you as my friend, I am all about loves, cuddles, and smiles! My new home absolutely needs experience with living with/managing fearful dogs and instilling boundaries, routine, and structure. I am looking for an active home that will include me regularly in activities outside of the home, that will provide me with continued, positive experiences out in the real world! I have recently learned that going for long walks is super fun - I get to stretch my legs and use my sniffer. I may enjoy sharing my home with a calm, confident canine sibling. An adult home without children as residents or frequent visitors will be best for me. Connecticut adopters only please. For more information about how to make me your next 4-legged family member, please contact Michelle at and please complete an application at
