Donovan is a handsome guy who is ready to join your family. Just one look from his golden eyes and you will fall in love. He is very sweet and loves to be the center of your attention. He is very respectful of your belongings, and will pretty much only touch the things that are given to him as his toys. He is happiest when his whole pack is in one room together, and likes it even better if they are petting on him or playing with him. He walks very well on a leash, and doesn't pull, but he can become distracted by other dogs.
Since he is still a young dog, Donovan has plenty of energy. He would be happiest with an active family that played with him often, took him for long walks or runs, or taught him to run along beside a bicycle. Donovan is very intelligent. He's a quick learner, and has already picked up many basic commands. Donovan would be happiest in a family that will play games, and stimulate him mentally as well as physically. He is house trained and crate trained, and sleeps quietly throughout the night.
Donovan is adorably clumsy at times, as he masters the challenges of walking on the floors in his foster home. It took him a little while to get used to walking on a tile floor, and even now, when playing, he has a few wipeouts now and again. He also recently learned how to navigate the stairs, a feat he was nearly unwilling to try when first arriving with his foster family. He is incredibly curious about cats and wants to play with them, but doesn't seem to be aware of the size difference, or that they may be more fragile than he.
All in all, Donovan is a smart, loving, and playful young boy, that would be a great addition to the right family. If you feel that you are that family, please fill out an application and ask for Donovan. He would be a delightful and charming new family member!
