Donovan's Story

"Meet Donovan! Donovan is a distinguished 5 year old, Shepherd mix with a sleek brown and black coat who likes car rides and is looking for a home to call his very own. With ears like his, Donovan can’t wait to continue training in a home. He loves nothing better than to spend his days taking long walks on the beach (or sidewalks) and lounging by a fire (or any other place) playing with toys or getting belly rubs. Donovan is such a fan of his toys that his preference is to keep them all to himself. While Donovan loves to keep busy and would appreciate the opportunity to live in a moderately active household, he does appreciate when humans don’t approach him too quickly.


Donovan is searching for a moderately active, adults-only home with an experienced owner. He would thrive in a home where he can be kept busy and continue his training; did he mention he already knows “sit”? He is very curious about other dogs and can be playful, but sometimes he gets so excited to see another four-legged friend that he may forget some of his manners and would love to work on appropriate leash etiquette with you. Donovan recently got to stay in a wonderful foster home where he got quite comfortable. His foster loved having Donovan visit and said he was such a good-natured dog. From his time there, we learned that he is crate-trained and fully housebroken! We also learned that he loves every adult he comes into contact with, “often leaning against them to get as close as he possibly can.” And while he is willing to learn a different name, he will come when you call him.
