My name is DONNY, and I’m a Goofball! That’s not my breed, of course, just my personality –
happy-go- lucky and oh so playful! I look like a Boxer-mix, which is what Colorado Canine
Rescue (a non-profit) thinks I may be. That’s only a guess, though, because I was a stray in a
New Mexico shelter before the Rescue brought me to the Denver area, so there is no history
on me. But Foster Mom has learned some things since I have been with her. I love people – I
even like going to see my vet! I love other dogs – no matter their size or gender. And I love
cats – okay, that’s not true. What I love is to chase cats, so Foster Mom says absolutely no
cats in my forever home! But what my forever home should have is a canine sibling close to
my own size of 50 pounds that likes to run and romp and rough-house as much as I do, plus a
fenced-in yard for us to play in. Also, even though I am a year old (again, that is only a guess), I
still act like a puppy, so more training would be a good idea. But I am smart and want to
please, and I catch on to new things really fast. I am house-trained at Foster Mom’s (but there
might be an accident or two while I am getting used to my forever home). I am also crate-
trained and go in willingly (especially if I’m rewarded with a dog cookie!), but Foster Mom
suspects I might like to sleep on her bed or next to it in my own bed. And I would go
everywhere with her if I could – running errands, hiking, jogging – whatever she wants to do!
Foster Mom tells me that right this minute, someone is looking for a dog just like me, and that
special person – or maybe a family – will be loving and patient and know exactly what a dog
like me needs. Is it you? Let’s meet and find out! Please go on-line right now to fill out an
adoption application at www.coloradocaninerescue.org. CCR is asking a $175.00 adoption
donation for me, which is such a deal because I am neutered, vaccinated, heart worm negative
and microchipped. Remember, though, the Rescue can’t guarantee my breed composition or
my age – but you won’t care about that once you meet me!
