Update: Donovan was adopted on January 12th!
When expressing great joy and affection some dogs like to kiss and lick.
Donovan though gives "love nibbles" on your chin.
Especially with gentle women, his personality springs to life. He is spectacularly warm-hearted for those he knows and trusts.
But trust does not come easily for Donovan, especially with men. He shows signs of being victimized by past abuse -- physical and/or screaming -- so he is wary of new people until he decides on their motivations and intentions.
Donovan is a handsome, affectionate brindle Heinz 57 with Shepherd, neutered, about one year of age.
We rescued him from another shelter.
Donovan debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
