Walter is a sweet donkey who wants nothing more than to mingle with his three German shepherd siblings.
Over the years, growing up with his siblings, he developed some unusual habits that his parents loved.
Walter was just a child when Brad and Kelly Blake adopted him in Arizona.
Brad Blake said: “We have wild thieves roaming the town. “Walter’s mother rejected him because she was too young.”
“The Bureau of Land Management and the locals tried for 10 hours to get Walter’s mother to take to him. Nothing worked, so we were called in and asked if we wanted to adopt him. Of course, we said yes! ”
Before long, Walter was adjusting to his new surroundings and connecting with new people in his life, especially his father.
Today, the rescued donkey still lives in the Blakes’ home like any other dog that has grown to 150 pounds.
“We have three German Shepherds, and they all adopted little Walter from day one. They helped us raise him and teach him house manners.”
As a result, Walter exhibits many dog-like personality traits, especially when his father returns from a business trip.
Walter will run up to him and snuggle up to him excitedly while wagging his tail as soon as he sees him.
Blake said: “Walter acted like he was a dog. “He wagged his tail and was very excited when we got home. He jumps and rubs me to fall in love with him. He even lay on the couch next to me to take a nap.”
“Every night, we all walk into the desert to exercise, and Walter runs around with our shepherds like he is one of them,” he added.
“We never imagined how much Walter would change our lives for the better,” Blake said.
