Hubba Hubba this hunky fella is one big teddy bear.  Vinny, aka Captian Naughty Pants (CNP), is our resident charmer who can melt even the coldest of hearts (which comes in quite handy during our MN winters).  A perfect day for CNP would be a nice walk, a snack, a snooze, some scratches from his people, then repeat, repeat, repeat.

Did we mention that Vinny thinks that walks are just about the best thing ever.  Happily trotting along wagging his tail as he goes, he greets new people with an easy affability.  If you are looking for the perfect passenger in life and in your car Vinny was born to be your copilot.  Forget Thelma and Louise, with Captain Naughty Pants at your side you could rule the world.  Can you say road trip!

When he isn't taking a stroll or riding along in your automobile, during his down time Vinny is quite content curl up in his kennel or invite you to join him on the couch for some R & R.  And least we forget our boy Vinny is also quite the foodie – if you need a taste tester for your culinary creations Vinny is just the man for the job. 

And because we love him dearly, we can freely say that Vinny can be a bit of a dork - a smart, lovable, stubborn, funny, silly, dork.  He even has his own Facebook page: to keep you apprised of his latest adventures - stop by and say hi :)

Yup - Vinny is a total catch!  What are you waiting for?


We will turn this over to Captain Naughty Pants to answer some FAQs

Where did you get the name Captain Naught Pants?  Well my foster mom says that sometimes stubborn, sassy, and too big for my britches.  Thus the name was born.

How did you get to be such a stunningly handsome boy?  I owe it all to my exercise routine, healthy diet, and clean living.  I take several walks every day to keep my boyish figure.

Am I good with dogs? So far so good!  I live with a 4 legged foster sister, a 4 legged foster brother and have a weekly playdate with the boy next door. I have met many other dogs and everything went well.  I especially enjoyed playing with puppies (in small doses).

Am I good with cats? They look like fun but I haven’t met one up close and personal like yet. 

Good with kids? I absolutely love people and especially enjoyed the kids I have met.

What are my hobbies? Long walks, playing with friends, chewing on bones, and entertaining my foster family with my antics.

Do I know any tricks/commands?  I am all over sit, down, stay, kennel, still "learning" to walk nicely on a leash but I can pull and I am very strong. I recently took the American Kennel Club "Canine Good Citizen" test and passed with flying colors.

Am I crate trained?  I absolutely love my crate and will go in there all by myself when I want to chill out and relax.  However, I really prefer not to be locked in - please leave the door open as I think I must be what is called claustrophobic/  My foster mom has been working with me on this and is hopeful that I will one day be able to comfortably be in the crate with the door shut.  For now my foster mom leaves me in the guest room with an open door crate and I am the perfect gentleman.  In fact I am such a good boy I even make forts to play in out of all of the pillows on the bed.

Am I potty trained?  Yes - but of course.

What is my activity level?  Moderate.  I like to walk - but I am so not a runner. A couple of nice long walks each day make me really happy as I love to be out and about with my people.  Another dog to hang out with would be nice, but is not necessary, I like very short play sessions with my friends.

What are some fun things I do? Exploring the outdoors, laying in the sun, baking bread, eating, hiding my toys, and going to training class to learn new things.

Who do I currently live with? I live with my foster mom,  and a 4 legged foster sister and brother.
