Meet Dontez!

By Sharon Stern, Animal Friends Volunteer

Dontez has been on a journey to find a loving home for a very long time. And, I have had the privilege of becoming part of his circle of close friends. He is one of the smartest dogs I have ever worked with. Dontez is an expert at nose work and food puzzles and is happiest when he is in the company of his favorite people. And, during his time at Animal Friends, he has gotten much better at meeting new friends. All he needs is a proper introduction!

Dontez has enjoyed several overnight visits to volunteers’ homes. These breaks from the shelter are a great way to see how an animal might acclimate to life in a home – and he has been the perfect house guest! Dontez has a lively personality, but keeping his mind active is a great way to help him channel that energy. He especially loves to take long walks and go for rides in the car.

We know that the best home for Dontez would be one where he’ll have plenty of space to run and play! He would greatly benefit from having a big yard with a privacy fence so he can have a space to call his own. While he’s not the type of dog who will enjoy going to the dog park, he has so much affection to share and loves to have all of your attention to himself! At the end of a busy day, Dontez enjoys nothing more than snuggling with a trusted friend. He would be glad to share a spot on the couch to watch a movie (and maybe to sneak a kernel of popcorn or two).

“This fabulous dog brings a smile to my face and makes me laugh each and every day. If you have room in your heart and home for a beautiful boy with a larger-than-life personality, Dontez  may be the companion you’ve been searching for!”
