February 14 may only come once a year, but we've got a special guy who will bring love and happiness to your life all 365 days in the year! Cupid's arrow is waiting to cast it's spell by uniting you with our ultra special Mix guy, Valentino. Just look at his amazing coloring and markings. This alone will stop you in your tracks. He will instantly pull you to him with his amazing personality, great energy and his zest for life. Valentino is a love bug who knows the command "sit" and thrives to please his people. His previous guardian loves him very much and surrendering him was the most difficult decision, but her health now doesn't allow her to care for this handsome guy. ITV was entrusted to find the perfect match for Valentino so he can continue in a fabulous life in a new home. Who wouldn't just fall in love with our mature yet active 6 year old pal? Valentino is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm tested. Weighing 36 pounds, Valentino was more a member of the family than a pet in his previous home. He slept in bed, obeyed the rules and did his potty business outside. Here at ITV, this guy is adjusting well and stays happy and hopeful. Valentino keeps his kennel clean, loves his leash walks and is very social during playtime in the backyard. We know Valentino is destined to have amazing journeys with you as he starts a new chapter in his life. He's searching for a pack leader who appreciates a loyal companion, will entwine Valentino into the family tree and continue training and expand this smart guy's mind. Valentino is the complete package, so don't waste any money or time on other match making websites. Submit an adoption application at ITVRescue.org. When you meet Valentino, he will steal your heart and lead you onto an adventure of a lifetime!
It Takes A Village Canine Rescue, Inc. is a non-kill 501(c)(3) dog rescue dedicated to doing what it takes to find loving homes for stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals, and to keep these animals safe and free from further suffering. Our mission is "To work as one in helping homeless dogs irrespective of breed, location or circumstance." By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, animal control, trainers, and boarding facilities, we are able to rescue countless animals every year and provide them with loving temporary care as we work to find them well-matched forever homes. Although we do not discriminate based on breed, size or color, we have a particular interest in bully breeds, black dogs and other hard-to-place dogs.
