Hi there! My name is Davey. I have been told I am a very handsome boy with a personality to match! Those are great qualities, right? I don’t understand why finding my forever family is taking so long. I originally came from a high-kill shelter in South Carolina, and boy, was I glad to get out of there! I have since come to love all the volunteers and staff at Animal Ark. When the volunteers brush me, I don’t have the heart to tell them they can brush all they want; I’ll make more! You should know right from the start about my two favorite things. They are belly rubs and a fun game of fetch! You may wonder why those two?… Well, I get to do both of them with my humans! So, if this sounds good to you, count me in! This is what the volunteers & staff want to share about me:

Davey is an affectionate and playful boy who will brighten your days and instantly capture your heart. You can often find Davey with his chin on his paws eyes looking up your way. He hopes to catch your glance in a silent plea for some time spent with you. Davey will settle next to you or even come up and lie in your lap. He doesn’t need any coaxing. During brushing sessions, he will always turn over for his tummy to be rubbed because he thinks belly rubs are the best! Davey LOVES to play fetch and cannot hide his enjoyment when chasing and returning the ball. His happiness is written all over his SMILING face! Davey is a pack dog at heart and has many doggy friends at the shelter. Davey and his friend Blue often chase each other while playing in the ark park together. He will even share his ball with her. Davey does well with most dogs when given proper introductions. However, meeting with any potential sibling(s) would be necessary. Davey looks forward to going on walks and is always on the lookout for a squirrel to chase…. Squirrels beware!!! Because he has a prey drive, he will do best in a home without critters and small animals. Davey adores his humans, and after his walk, he enjoys a good rest or nap, hopefully right next to you! Davey rides well in the car, is house-trained, and knows commands like sit, shake, down, and come. He likes children but, at times, can be a little mouthy. He does have a “soft” mouth and responds well to treat or toy redirection. Davey is brilliant and wants to please, and he would benefit from some training to become the best dog he can be! We Love Davey very much and want to find him his very own family. So, if you are searching for a loyal and playful companion who will brighten your days and fill your life, sweet Davey is your boy!
