Mini-Donkeys love you the minute you touch them, after they are born. Once you have made that contact, they are instantly bonded, always eager to please and always happy to see you. They crave human attention, and are friendly to all who come in contact with them. They have the best personality of any animal we have ever come to meet. They are Loyal, Protective and Territorial, much like a dog is.
They are also a herd animal and do not do well alone, they need another donkey friend. They do not make good companions to smaller animals, due to the fact that they play differently. Because of this the smaller animal end up getting hurt.
