The vets at county suspect the burns are a result of being outside in these extreme temperatures; a horrible place for any dog to be in the Arizona summer.
We know it’s hard for you to look at these graphic photos- it is for us too. But if we turn away now, who will help?
Please help us help Vinnie get the vet care he so desperately needs by donating to his medical care chip-in fund at the bottom of the page and as always, please share his pictures and story with your world. Thank You!

Vinnie has officially been adopted by his foster family, who couldn’t bear to give him up. Congrats to Vinnie and his fur-ever family!
Update on Vinnie, Sept. 25th: The burns are gone, just varying degrees of scar tissue and regrowth. He’s getting some spots of hair and still has a thin stripe of thinner tissue down the middle but he’s getting there. He refuses to hold still long enough for me to get a good picture of it!
Update on Vinnie, July 28th: Vinnie is NOT impressed with his modified sleeper and inner tube collar! After getting his bandage off AGAIN , drastic measures were taken. Some belly rubs fixed that though! He has finally shown some interest in toys…he will randomly start playing with his rope. If I’d let him, he’d much rather play with his clothes though! He is also slowly adjusting to the other dogs in the house and even let our large dog clean his ears.
From Vinnie’s foster mom, July 6th: Vinnie
