Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:

Just so we’re clear, Donatello is a dog. He’s not a turtle, though he is a teenager (in dog years). We’re still trying to find out if he has any ninja skills… we’d guess yes, but it seems like the last thing a ninja would do is admit to all his skills and lose the element of surprise. Ninjas are tricky like that. Anyway, Donatello has been a VGB (that’s very good boy) while at the shelter and has quickly earned himself quite a few fans. He’s super sweet and friendly, and is easy to leash up for a stroll. Whether you set out to adopt a dog, a ninja or even a turtle- ask about Donatello today!
