My name is Vito amd let me tell you a little it about me. I had a home and a person I loved very much. He was hospitalized for COVID-19 and one of his last wishes was to see me again. I was brought to the hospital and I stayed there. Waiting. For my person. My all. But he never came. I didn't know it would be the last time I would see him. COVID took his life and a piece of my heart. People were kind. They left food and water and a box for shelter. I kept hoping...hoping he would walk out that door...and I waited. For almost a month I waited. Animal advocates came together in Mexico, Texas and NJ. It was an amazing effort with amazing people who all fell in love with me and arranged to get me from Mexico to Texas and ultimately here to NJ. I thought I found a home, twice actually. They loved me...but as much as I love other dogs perhaps it's meant for me to be an only dog. I love the friendship, play dates, I'm totally non reactive with other dogs in casual settings. But the resident dogs kinda want their people to themselves and I did too, so we struggled to find a common ground. So I'm thinking me as an only dog, with a fun loving family who can take me for walks and play dates with other dogs would be perfect. A fenced yard is a plus so maybe i csn have friends over. And oh..someone who is home more. I wasn't crated before and to be totally honest it freaks me out. A nice cozy space for me while some one is out would feel much better to me. So...I'm about 3 years old, handsome as all get out they say, up to date on all my vaccines, microchipped and neutered. I would make someone the most loyal companion ever. I need someone who is going to love me and invest their time and heart. Visit www.3hearts4paws.org to apply. I would love to meet you.

Interested in adopting me?  To fill out an application visit 3 Hearts 4 Paws.  Please note: we generally do not adopt out of state unless it is within 1-2 hours of us.  Currently due to COVID we are unable to accommodate out of state adoptions.
