Davinci, neutered male, 4 years old, 58 Lbs.
(Da-Tou is his old name, it means big head for good luck.)

We know Davinci since he was an eight months old puppy in 2012. He was showed up in park and asked food from everyone. Everyone gave food to him but no one is willing to adopt him. A TNR group neutered him then released him to the park. He disappeared after a week neutered, we tried to find him but no any found. One year later, he was showed up in park again. We guess someone took him home but abandoned him too. He has stayed in the park over two years alone; he is welcome of other dog lovers, everyone gave him yummy treats, he became to a fatty with short legs. No one adopts him still but sometimes he had overnight in someone’s home in bad weather days. He was chasing car of a volunteer couple times, he want to go home with the volunteer, he is eager for a home.

One day, another stray dog (Jin-Mao) with one eye blind showed up then stayed in the park, he and Davinci became to buddy, they followed heal of each other to go everywhere, to chasing cars together, to sleeping together. He changed Davinci’s behave to chasing cars. Not only one people dislike them, they are mad and want to call animal shelter to catch both them. We can’t stop them to chasing cars but we caught Jin-Mao then neutered him, maybe his behave will be changed by neutered, we thought. Jin-Mao is another story; he is famous and got a lot of sympathy by his blind eye. The rescuer wrote an essay to express how sorrowful Jin-Mao is then pasted on FB, she is unintentional but made Jin-Mao adopted even thought he is very scared of human. Jin-Mao doesn’t back to park after neutered, so Davinci became alone again and sad. The rescuer feels heart-broken since Davinci is sweet-temperament and close to people but has no home, so she asked for Jin-Mao’s adopter to foster Davinci three times, finally he got fostering. And he is reduced weight from 66 lbs to 58 lbs in foster home. You might ask why foster family would not adopt Davinci, because they have too many dogs. They adopted Jin-Mao just because he is shy and fearful of human badly.

He is sweet-temperament, stable, calm and obedient. He is not young but not old either. He is not running fast by his short legs, and is not pulling leash when walking on leash.

He is very friendly, good with strangers and children. He knows the meaning of family, he is eager to have a home. He is also good with dogs and cats too; please watch his videos.

If you need a fur kid to be company, obviously he is the good one. He is eager to be loved and be cherished forever.
