Diesel is a 5 year old mixed breed dog who ended up in rescue due to no fault of his own. He gets along with most dogs, cats, and kids. Diesel already knows sit and shake and we'll be working on more obedience and socialization skills during his time with us. He's incredibly sweet and has the most stunning coat! He weighs about 65lbs.
“Diesel and I spent this week getting to know each other. He is a very friendly dog who likes to say hi and give kisses to everybody. I spent a lot of time with him to find out what he knows and what we need to work on. He knew sit and shake and that was about it. Now he knows a few more things. I taught him to look at me, touch, and give. He takes treats very gently and will auto sit to get them. He likes to play fetch and tug-of-war with the deflated basketballs. As soon as you tell him to give, he will release it. He tires out quickly though, but we will work on his stamina. He really is quite anxious to meet all of the other dogs here, but they just are not sure of him yet. He’s a big boy! He came here with Shadow, whom we call the old man, and he likes to say hi to him. Shadow says hi and then he is like, “let me alone junior.” Haha. Diesel does not bark in the cell and loves to cuddle. He is opening up more and more each day and I am discovering new things about his personality every day. When I go to work, he goes right in his crate. When I get back and let him out, his tail wags a mile a minute and he showers me with kisses and grabs one of his toys to play with me. He loves to go outside and explore and just watch what is going on. When playing fetch, he jumps real high to go and get it. He’s a great dog and deserves a forever home. He has a lot of love to give and he enjoys giving it. Who out there wants it?”
