Notes: Donovan is 3 to 4 years old and the perfect size - not too big, not too small - around 50 lbs. He loves to go for long leisure walks and car rides. He gets so excited when he sees the leash. Donovan has had a couple unsuccessful adoptions. He will do best in a home with no small animals and no male dogs. He has been around older kids and has done fine. Donovan is a laid back boy who is independent and can do his own thing. He is mostly house trained, once he gets used to your routine he will be fully house trained. This boy is intelligent and loves to learn new commands. He is still trying to figure out toys but does like to chase them. Donovan is now neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. He has NO adoption fee.
