Vinnie here. Most people see a plain brown dog when they glance at my photo. That's why I don't get much attention here on the web site. I've been at CARE about 3 years in human time, and in that time I've seen the fluffy ones, the spotted ones, and heaven help us---the blued eyed ones--fly out of here like hot cakes on a cold winter morning. Barbie dogs, I call'em. No one seems to notice my cute white toes, that spiffy white chest and the stylish white tip on my tail.
You really have to see me in person to notice that my smile is like a dolphin's. The volunteers who work here know what I mean. I'm a big hit with them. They have pet names for me like Vin Vin or Vinnie Boo. Kinda silly I know, but hey, you take what you can get when someone notices you are more than just a plain brown dog. They'll tell you that I'm very people oriented. Frankly, I've had enough kennel mates to last me the rest of my life---human companionship is what I crave. I wouldn't mind if I never saw another dog. Sometimes my big-dog attitude gets me in trouble with actual big dogs, so I'll do best in a one-dog family or with a very laid back pack.
Clowning around is my favorite past time; I know when I've made a person laugh and that just makes my day. I haven't been tested on cats or house manners, but I'm eager to please and if I don't pass the test I'll study hard to make it up next time. I love going places on a leash and have greeted the few kids I've met with gentle, tail-wagging enthusiasm.
One good thing about living in rescue so long is that I'm not needy. I'm low-maintenance in every way. My short coat which shines whether I'm groomed daily or not. Try that with your average Barbie pup! I can be satisfied in your fenced yard all day while you are at work, if you will spend time with me on evenings and weekends. I'm not a barker so I won't disturb the neighbors. If you have been denying yourself the love and loyalty of a good dog buddy because you can't be with him 24/7, I'm your boy.
Rescue Group Info...
CARE Inc. is a small all volunteer GA state licensed non-profit companion animal rescue group serving the animals and people of Pike County Georgia. Presently, Pike county has NO animal control which keeps our small rescue full of pets waiting to be adopted by their forever family and others on a waiting list to come in as space is available. We usually have more pets than what is posted. If you know what you are looking for and don't see it contact us as several breeds go faster than we can post them.
At the present time we are not holding adoption events in any particular location, however we will soon be holding them again and will post the dates and location as they become available.
An application and interview is required before adopting. (You must be a least 25 with a valid driver's license to submit an application.) Fees vary with each pet.
We adopt throughout Georgia.
