Handsome Donovan has had a rough start like most of our pups in the south – he landed at the Memphis Animal Shelter and then developed mast cells so he was fighting a couple of battles.

Fast forward, he found an amazing foster mom and we were able to have surgery to remove his lumps and bumps – they came back as low grade mast cell tumors with clean margins which is great news for him … and you!!

Donovan is single and ready to mingle, but if he finds the right family, he’d love to settle down. He enjoys walks, chewing a good bone in the sunshine, snuggling up next to his humans, and sampling the chef’s daily specials from the kitchen.

Donovan is a tough guy with a big heart. Cancer tried to get the best of him, but he beat it and bounced back.

Despite the tough exterior, he is a real softy. He gets his feelings hurt if he thinks he is in trouble or you tell him no (beware of the side eye stare, it will get you every time).

Donovan suffers from FOMO (fear of missing out) and will follow you everywhere! If he is home alone however, he can be found snoozing on the couch. He does like to get a little mischievous at times and will help himself to a magazine or whatever else might be lying around.

He’s been friendly with other dogs and people, but an adult only home would be preferred; he can be a little opinionated at times and needs a family who will be patient and respect his cues.

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
