Charm School

When young Donovan came to BAD RAP from his rural shelter he was lacking some of the sophistication that city dogs acquire earlier in life. So the big city dogs wouldn't make fun of our awkward teenager, Alma, the elderbull puppy, agreed to help young Donovan learn the basics.
See, Donovan, this is how you ask another dog to play
Once you're friends, you can kiss and play bitey-face.
Thanks to his kind mentor, Donovan is quickly learning how to be a civilized young dog.  Thank you Alma!

Both Donovan and Alma are still looking for their forever homes at


  1. s u h w e e t ! post and pics. four paws up and sixteen pads wigggling. ok, ok, i know the dogs don't really wiggle their pads, but I like to imagine that. these barn blogs are the very bestest way to start the day. muaah xo

  2. Alma, it was very kind of you to show Donovan the ropes of what it means to be a polite dog. Have fun. You are in a good place with good people who will do all they can to find you great homes.

  3. Aw, what a sweet-looking young man! And what a sweet story.
