Adoptable Dog of the Week - Donovan

This kind-hearted hunk is looking for a forever home! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Donovan, a 4 years old Shepherd mix from Middletown, Delaware. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on his vaccines, and housetrained. Donovan does well with other dogs but hasn’t been tested around kitties. The recommendation is that he goes to an adult-only household or a family with children over the age of 14 – not because he doesn’t like kids, but because he weighs around 90 lbs and could inadvertently knock a young kid down during playing. 

Donovan’s Tale

You wouldn't believe it but this handsome fella has spent some time in shelters and rescues – through no fault of his own, mind you. Donovan is a big guy with a happy-go-lucky attitude and an even bigger heart, and he would flourish with the right people by his side. He has all of his manners – he knows that you shouldn’t go potty inside the house, he walks well on the leash, and already knows a few tricks. And considering how much he loves treats, you’d probably be able to teach quite a few more on your own!

Donovan is an active, outdoorsy dog that will love going on rides and adventures with you. He loves spending time outside, so a fenced yard is a must if you want to adopt this cutie pie. As for other pets, Donovan would love to share his new home with another dog as he tends to get along great with other canines, especially those that have a personality similar to his – laid-back, playful, and loving! And once he’s done with exploring, running around, and playing, either with you or his canine sibling, Donovan will be more than happy to snuggle up to you for some quality snuggles. 

If you think Donovan sounds like a dream boat, contact It Takes a Village Animal Rescue (Delaware) to learn more about him and the adoption process.
