DONALD VANCE"sweet boy, gets along great with cats &dogs"

Golden Retriever, Mix

An adotable dog in Feasterville, PA

  • Adult
  • Large
  • Male

Hello – My name is Donald. I am a single golden Southern Gentleman,
in search of my forever home. I have not experienced the best in
humans up till now. But now that I am in PA, things are looking up!
I am a shy guy by nature, and consider myself kind and loving. I am
currently living in a wonderful foster home, with 3 K9 siblings and a
sweet feline. We all get along wonderfully. I feel secure having
fellow 4 legged friends to hang out with and play with.

I am starting to feel safe in my new home. I am being showered with
love and affection. I am still extremely fearful of men, and prefer
the company of the ladies in the home. Now don’t get me wrong, I
would never show any of my insecurities through aggression. In fact,
I don’t have a mean bone in my body. But I do cower when men come
near me. My foster family is working with me to overcome my fear, and
my foster dad has been very patient in trying to help me break through
this fear.

I love to run and play, but settle down nicely. I do not need a
crate, because after all, I mind my manners. I make sure to take care
of my business outside at all times. Being the gentleman I am, I
would never be destructive or loud. I am definitely a “homebody” and
love nothing more than hanging in the house and in the yard with my
family. I am not looking for any adventure- been there and done that
during my shelter days…I prefer not to go on walks at this point…maybe
someday - but right now I am loving the security of a real home and
fenced in yard. I do love my people, but can feel overwhelmed with
too much company. Of course, I am not rude about it, so just go off to
a quiet spot in the house when there is too much activity for me.

My foster family has promised to find me a loving and patient home,
preferably one with another K9 friend for me to play with. If you can
offer me love and patience, I would love to meet you. When I meet
you, I promise I will not take notice of any of your human
imperfections. You will be perfect in my eyes. I hope when you meet
me, you can see past my timidness and shyness and know that, given a
bit of time, I will be a loyal and loving companion.
I hope to meet you soon.

Donald (M, 2-3 years old, Golden Retriever mix) is a sweet, but very scared boy. We don't know his story, but what we do know is that he needs someone to give him the second chance that he deserves. Please give Donald the love and patience that he deserves.

Best suite at this point for a home that will provide a quiet home where Donald can relax and learn what love is!
