Meet Donny


(Application opens in a new browser window.)

Donny is a 14-pound, black, male Miniature Poodle who recently came to us from a less than ideal situation. His previous owner was overwhelmed with too many pets.

Despite his past, Donny is a sweet and affectionate dog who loves people, although he may be a bit timid at first. Foster dad can atest, with time and patience, he quickly realizes that he is safe and begins to open up. He is currently learning the ropes of being a dog and is eager to experience all the joys that life has to offer. One area where Donny needs some extra support is walking on a leash. Unfortunately, he never had the opportunity to learn this skill in his previous environment. However, he is eager to learn and is already becoming familiar with a harness. With a little time and practice, he will be happily strolling alongside his loved ones and enjoying outings in the neighborhood. In addition to leash training, Donny would also benefit from having a secure fenced-in yard. This would allow him to run freely, play with kids, and have the company of another companion dog. Having a safe space to romp around and be himself will further contribute to his overall happiness and well-being.

Donny is crate trained and is good with other dogs, and he leaves cats alone. His demeanor is gentle and loveable and we think he would be good with children older than 7 but not sure about younger tots.

Paws for Seniors Rescue Dogs are Spay/Neutered, current on Rabies and Distemper Vaccinations, Microchipped, Dewormed, Heartworm and Lyme Bourn Disease tested as well as Baseline Blood Analysis. They also receive an intake wellness exam where other possible ailments are identified.

If you are a patient and loving family who is willing to give Donny the time and attention he needs to adjust and learn, he could be the perfect addition to your home.
