Calling all humans with hands for scritches!!
Donnie's favorite thing in the whole world is a good scratch. He's a very sweet and easy going fella who has never met a stranger and is just looking for all the love and affection.

Donnie really strives to be the best boy and check all your boxes.. He is house and crate trained, settling down for a nap quickly when left alone in his crate. He's great on leash and enjoys a leisurely walk around the neighborhood, often pausing to sniff the fresh air!
He also gets along great with the pup he's currently living with in foster and would be happy going to a home with or without another dog.

Donnie is motivated most by the love you'll give him and will often seek you out around the home and nudge your hand for some pets and love before curling up at your feet for a snooze.
Occasionally he'll lift up his head to check on you and see if you are still there and willing to give him some more scratches.

He has not been observed with cats or kids, but his foster thinks because of his calm demeanor that he might make a good candidate to live with either.

Donnie is such a gentle soul with so much love to give his future family. Would you give him that opportunity??
Come meet your new best friend
