This boy has a SMILE FOR DAYS! Never have a bad day with Donnie's big, happy, infectious love in your life. Donnie is a big snuggle bug. If you need a kiss; Donnie can help! He loves his people and showering them with affection! He is so happy all of the time that his little Boxer-nub of a tail goes a mile a minute and makes his whole hind-end wiggle, wiggle, wiggle! Donnie is a big boy but still wants to be a lap dog. Sweet Donnie boy is special needs, but don't tell him that, he has no idea! Donnie lost his leg due to a large mast cell tumor that was wrapped around his elbow. Mast Cell Tumors are cancerous lumps, his wonderful vet team had taken some additional tumors off other areas as well. We seemed to be keeping them at bay, but a few others have popped up. We are continuing the treatment regime the doctor has suggested and looking at other alternatives for him. So, if adopted he will need additional care for the rest of his life. This sweet boy is personality plus, bubbly handsome and sweet as can be, he drew a bad straw in the genetic lottery but he knows his forever family is still out there waiting. If you have additional questions feel free to ask. Donnie says missing his front leg only makes it easier to get closer to his people. He does not let it slow him down. AT. ALL! He loves playing with his foster family's dog and play with toys. He is big but very gentle even with the littlest dogs in the home. He likes to go for walks but is just as happy spending time at home. With 3 legs, a little walk goes a long way for him. Then he is ready to curl up next to you, snuggle and snore! He LOVES being with his people! He will let you know when it is breakfast and dinner time. He is a respectful eater and very treat motivated for training. Donnie is a big boy but has done great with his foster siblings. He was even a home with a tiny Yorkie and was so good. He will probably need to be in a home with dog savvy kids, just based on his size and lack of care for personal space. He neeeeeds to love you, immediately, without care of who or what he has to go over, through, or by! He does fine while home alone and is not crate trained from what we can tell. He is very smart and is doing well learning his commands. He would love a home where he could get snuggles and hugs and kisses all day, walks and a nice fenced back yard! He is a 2-year-old, 65lb male Boxer mix. As part of Donnie's $250 adoption fee, he is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.
