I was born on May 5, 2017. I get really excited when all of the sudden out of no where I see my human friends in the same room as me, even though we had been in the same room for minutes. My favorite game is tug and going swimming! I am learning about colors and shapes, how to identify objects, and building confidence.

Donovan is a love bug and our best greeter. If you are gone for as little as 5 minutes he treats it as if he hasn't seen you in an eternity, Donovan is also a huge goofball. He loves to act silly and he loves to let puppies believe they are beating him up. He is very patient and loving to all of our babies. He is a gentle giant and loving friend.
His working on go get help, brace, retrieve, loose leash walking and impulse control. He loves loves loves frisbees and playing tug with his buddies.
OCTOBER 2018 UPDATE
Another month down, about 6 more to go! Time really flies when you’re having fun. My handlers have slowed down on teaching me things and have started to perfect the things I already know. I am working on learning new colors. I already know blue and yellow, but am currently learning new colors like red, orange, black and purple. I am currently trying to master ‘go get help’. I have a lot of fun with this one, someone is hurt and asks me to get help and I find someone to come help. I just need to remember to turn around and make sure the person heard me and is following me. I will get it pretty soon! Check back in with me next month to hear about my service dog adventures!
SEPTEMBER 2018 UPDATE
I have been really busy this month. I have been teaching the new handlers how to handle and teach my friends. I am a good role model, and I am glad to be helping all my team members. Not only have I been helping my humans friends learn, but I have been helping my doggy friends as well.
