HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A wiener dog that gained national attention for his pudgy frame -- and again later for his incredible weight loss -- finally has a family.

The husky dachshund arrived at his foster family's home with the name 'Fat Vincent' but after he shed 38 pounds, he earned a new nickname: 'Skinny Vinny.'

Now it appears that Skinny Vinny's foster family has decided to keep him around permanently. The dachshund recently was adopted by them.

Congrats on finding a permanent home, Skinny Vinny!
