More about DONK

Meet our Delightful Donk!

Donk came to Battersea as a stray, so sadly we have no history for his first few years of life. The wardens he came from described him as a lovely boy that was a pleasure for them to have, they said he was very friendly with everyone he met and very excited to see dogs of all shapes and sizes.

We have seen the same lovable boy, just wanting lots of fuss and attention from his people. He can have his mouthy moments when he becomes excited but nothing makes him happier than holding a toy and wiggling around with it.

Donk doesn't seem to know his own size and can be quite the bouncy boy at times. He's very affectionate and will do a full body lean when giving him a fuss and a cuddle. He will need new owners who are experienced and confident with larger breeds & willing to continue his training. He can be strong on lead so they must be confident they can manage him when out on walks.

He absolutely loves dogs! And although he does have a lovely playful side to him, he has also demonstrated sexual behaviours around other dogs. He has been able to disengage from these sexual behaviours and offer other behaviours such as play or sniffing independently, however he does tend to go back to sexual behaviours. We advise new owners to keep him on lead when socialising him with other dogs until he starts showing more consistent play as not all dogs will enjoy being mounted by a big dog!

Donk has been such a delightful and entertaining dog to have here in kennels. He has a very big heart, that definitely outweighs his brain! He will make a great companion in his new home.

If the Delightful Donk sounds like the companion for you, then please contact the rehoming team at: rehoming@battersea.org.uk, ensuring you have first registered for rehoming on the Battersea website: https://www.battersea.org.uk/rehoming.

Please note due to volume of enquiries we may have at any time, we will ONLY respond to homes that we feel best meet his needs.
