Personality: Donnie is a big boy looking for a place to call home. He is energetic, young, handsome guy in a market to find his best friend who can help him learn good manners through basic obedience training. After a long walk he will be perfectly happy to curl up for a cozy nap. He is treat motivated and very willing to learn new things. Post-adoption scholarship sponsored by Pedigree Foundation. The scholarship is for a complimentary training session with a certified dog trainer.
History: Donnie was transferred in from our partner shelter in Central Valley.
Dog Skills: Donnie likes other dogs and he wants to play with every dog he meets. Sometimes he can get carried away in play and need time-outs. He does best with dogs that take breaks between playing...it helps him learn that stopping play to sniff the surroundings is just as great and rewarding as wrestling or playing chase with another dog.
Cat Skills: Donnie has shown interest to stalk and chase cats so a home without, cats, small dogs and other small critters is recommended.
Leash Skills: Donnie walks well on leash and only will pull when he want's to say hello to a person or another dog. Sometimes he stalls on leash because he doesn't want to go back inside but treats, jolly talk and little jog helps. He can be timid walking on slippery and shiny floors but he is building his confidence indoors every day.
