All dogs found on the website are at the specified location and can be viewed at that location.

Donald - Duck Tolling Retriever
Donald is a lovable older guy that is looking for family to call his own and hang out with. His foster home loves him dearly as he is very easy and gets along with everything but he had a tumor removed from behind his left front leg and generally cannot handle all the stairs they have in their home. He is about 8, had his tumor removed and we are hoping it doesn't come back.
Update on Donald from the foster:
Donald needs new foster or forever home. Too many stairs is just not working anymore for him. Had really bad arthritis so we need Ranch home layout for him. House broken. Over 8, hard of hearing and seeing. But great with everything. Donald is a gentle and lovable older dog who is looking for a new home. His laid back and quiet personality ensures he gets along perfectly with other cats, dogs and kids but needs a family that can accommodate his physical needs. He has a hard time with stairs and either needs to be carried up and down stairs or needs to live in a ranch home with no stairs. He's a celebrity on walks - everyone he meets falls in love but he can only do short walks. A relaxed and quiet home would be best for this adorable senior. He has never barked - he's quiet as a mouse and loves to cuddle. His favorite thing is riding in the car - he'll do anything to get into your car for a quick trip!
