    Story

    Hey, hi, hello! Donovan here!

    “With the summer weather finally upon us, you’re definitely going to want a buddy to enjoy all the fun activities of the season! I’ve got you covered – long walks, swimming, hiking, or even just lounging on a sunny deck, count me in! I have plenty of energy and then some, so my new family is going to have to keep me busy both mentally and physically! An experienced home would be the best fit, and one that is totally on board with continuing my training using consistency and positive reinforcement!

    I already know a handful of commands like sit, shake, come, and drop, but I still need some help with my manners when it comes to jumping and mouthing type behaviors. I also have a strong sense of “stranger danger” and I can be protective of my stuff (people included), so my new family has to be willing and able to manage that. Children and cats are great, but not for me. Other dogs however (around my size or larger) are lots of fun, as long as we’ve been properly introduced!”

    I am a very sweet, charming, wiggly adolescent pup that needs a loving but consistent family to help me come into my own. Please contact the adoptions team for more information! Click the ‘Adopt’ button to get started!
