Chevy is a brown miniature donkey, who was born in 2008.
Before Chevy arrived at the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC), he resided on a farm with livestock in western Ontario. Chevy a breeding donkey. When his former owners restricted him from breeding opportunities, he developed some behavioural issues. He became more aggressive toward people. On the advice of the Sanctuary, the previous owner gelded Chevy, but his behaviour remained the same. They contacted the DSC again, and because they weren’t able to continue to handle his behaviour, they decided that it was in the best interest of Chevy to come to the DSC.
Chevy arrived in the late spring of 2020. Due to his current behaviours, Chevy resides with our other recently gelded donkeys, away from the jennets herd. Over time his hormone levels will drop, and with lots of training and consistent handling, he will become less aggressive, and we will be able to integrate him into one of our donkey groups.
