The Spotted donkey is a breed of domestic donkey that is characterized by its unique coat pattern, which features distinctive spots of white fur on a base coat of any color. The breed has been developed over many generations through selective breeding of donkeys with the desired coat pattern.

Spotted donkeys come in a range of sizes, from miniature donkeys that stand just over 30 inches at the shoulder to larger donkeys that can stand over 14 hands. They are known for their friendly, sociable nature and their calm, even temperament, making them popular as pets and show animals.

In terms of appearance, Spotted donkeys have large, floppy ears and a friendly, expressive face. They have a sturdy, muscular build and their coat patterns can vary greatly, with some donkeys having just a few spots, while others may have a more extensive pattern of white markings.

The Spotted donkey is a relatively new breed, and it continues to gain popularity among donkey enthusiasts. They are well-suited for a variety of activities, including trail riding, showing, and pet ownership. With their friendly disposition and unique coat pattern, they are also increasingly being used as therapy animals, bringing joy and comfort to people in a variety of settings.
