Bruiser was approximately 18 years old when we rescued him from the New Holland, PA auction in February 2016. He was terrified, extremely malnourished and very sick with pneumonia. He has been through a lot in his life, and has the scars and wounds to prove it. He was missing a big chunk of one ear and had an eye so badly damaged that our vet determined it needed to be removed. (He functions just fine without it.) Bruiser soon learned that other donkeys are not so terrifying and became a total love-bug. He is a sweet soul whose calming presence makes it a joy to be around him.

Bruiser loves hanging out with Braveheart and Stevie.
