Sorry but once you have donated a dog to the Dog Hotel there is no way of getting it back

Toberone is right but to make him happy maybe you can get the same dog with the same name. Just an idea

Aww poor dog, I hope it finds a family soon. And I'm sorry to say this but, once you donate a dog, it cannot be recovered... Hope this was useful and I'm sorry for your son...

There is only one way... You have to go to the kennel. Then you must select a dog with the exact same gender, breed, and color as your son's old dog. Hope I helped!

I am so sorry, you cannot retrieve a dog once you've donated it. But one way is to buy that dog with the same color,breed,gender,name,tricks, and bark (or personality!. If you chose all these steps, you'll get ur dog in no time but you should teach it sit too is it was his first dog.

Hope this helps! :D

Everyone above is right. I would do anything to help your son, but I can't. It still hurts me when I release a dog.

Well did you save it when it was deleted? If not you could rewind the time in Ds settings back to the day he got the dog he wanted. But other than that, would to be buy an exact replica of the dog he bought otherwise that's all I can say.
Sorry about your son's loss
Hope I helped

If you go to the kennel you can get him or her back if it's the same color and comment about the dog but you will have to teach him or her all the stuff you already tot him or her sorry if your son is cry so much I did that once and I did not like it at all

Well everyone is right...........Tell him the truth.He can't get his dog back but tell him to reset then get 1 2 or 3 dogs no more.Then he won't have to go back there again.Sorry this probably didn't help.I feel his pain :-(

Once you give away your dog another player will have your dog.
