This week we have chosen to feature Dovakin! Interesting name you may say…
My reaction exactly, before I furiously researched what this name could possibly mean in so many fascinating languages! Naturally I googled his name and apparently according to the Elder Scrolls video game, it means “Dragon Born”. I totally see the resemblance.. those deep soulful eyes..
Dovakin, AKA Dovy is listed as 9 years young, however it is hard to determine his exact age for this spry guy! He recently had a volunteer have him for a sleepover and she informed us that Dovakin can be a little shy at first and is an independent dog, but seeks attention when he feels that connection with you and that means all the lovins! That includes all the sweet puppy kisses we all love and all the snuggles.

my all of our dreams
Dovakin walks well on a leash and knows basic skills. He will make a great workout partner if you enjoy a light jog or a short hike, but Dovakin isn’t trying to be a Fitness King. Since he’s a team player, he’d be willing to join for your daily(or bi-weekly)
running jogging sesh.
I am not sure about you, but we are only
slightly totally OBSESSED with his ears and his devilishly handsome smile!! SWOON
Dovakin is already partly crate and house trained but going to a new forever home may need some assistance until he gets acclimated to his new home! He will have to be the only dog in the household, and we can’t fault him for wanting to be the only one getting all the love from his new family! He may not be as great with other dogs in the house BUT Dovakin does well with kids– case in point..
Oh, did we mention that Dovakin has been doing well learning through reward based training? Thanks to the Shelter Enrichment through One Love he has been receiving training while in the shelter and has been doing well. Since he is sponsored under the Shelter Dog Program Dovakin will come home microchipped AND free post adoption training to help secure that bond with your special new PIC 😉 We know you will fall in love with Dovakin as much as we have! He is located at MCACC East Shelter his ID # is A3938243 Contact us today so we can arrange a meet and greet with this handsome, smart fella!
