donovan pet therapy dog miami floridaDonovan - Pet Therapy Dog



Last week I had the good fortune to meet Donovan, an incredible pet therapy dog

at Bascom Palmer Eye Center in Miami. Donovan and his dad came walking past us.  At first I was surprised to see a dog in a hospital, when Donovan stopped by to say hello. We were  entranced with him the moment he came by.


Donovan is a beautiful blue merle Australian Shepherd with a disability - he is deaf.  He has an easy going way about him and loves people.  And they love him.


Donovan stopped while we petted and talked to him and his dad.  We found out Donovan had been rescued himself - maybe that's why he relates so well to others.  Donovan has an incredible ability to bring a smile and a calming feeling to those he meets.   He is a wonderful addition to the hospital and anywhere he goes to make people feel good.


Thank you for stopping by Donovan and Dad.  We are glad to have met you!


You can visit Donovan on his Facebook page at Donovan Lecure .  His contact information is below.

Elyse immediately ‘got’ us

We found Elyse on-line after working with another realtor that was not helping us find what we wanted. Elyse immediately ‘got’ us and showed us the right properties while providing encyclopedic knowledge of neighborhoods, dog restrictions, lifestyle options and benefits/trade offs between one house/neighborhood and the other. Elyse consistently provided important information at every stage of our process. As out-of-towners this was essential to our making the right decision. We couldn’t be happier or more grateful to Elyse for everything she’s done. Elyse is a rare combination of being a true subject matter expert and, more importantly, a genuinely caring person who looks after her people.

Good morning, Elyse... what a gorgeous pup! Your story about Donovan just melted my heart. I'm a mom of a rescue dog and cat and know first-hand how special these animals are.

Nina,  This dog was beautiful and so patient!  I'm so happy you enjoyed reading about Donovan.  I have had rescue dogs, one of them special needs, and totally agree with you.

How lovely that Donovan is so good with strangers. My rescue is still very nervous with people he doesn’t know

His owner said maybe because he is deaf.  With time, hopefully, your rescue will learn to trust more people.

My sister has a pet therapy dog that she brings to the children's hospital. It is amazing  to see how much the kids love having the dog near them.

Wow, and it's not just children but adults too.  That is so wonderful of your sister.  What kind of dog does she have?
