Does Vinnie Jones Have Any Pets?

Pip (Dog)

Breed: Mixed Breed

In a November 2023 interview with The Field, Vinnie Jones revealed he has a little dog named Pip. Jones was told his dog’s breed was a Patterdale Terrier mix but believes due to its size and lack of wiry fur it must be a chihuahua mix.

“This geezer told me she was a Patterdale cross and would have long legs. Long legs! A chihuahua cross, more like.”
