It’s no surprise to anyone who knows Pooh that he will do anything for a tasty snack. He’s so hopeful he’ll even pick up empty feed buckets and give them to his grooms in the hope that they might fill them up for him again!

Pooh lives at our Ivybridge centre with best friend Eeyore. Their favourite game is playing with their treat ball. Eeyore loves rolling it around and Pooh likes eating up the treats that come out of it. A perfect match!

Pooh is such a beautiful confident donkey. Adopt him today and welcome a new friend into your life. Or why not introduce him to one of your friends as a unique gift.

Is Pooh your perfect match?
