History: Diesel needed rescue from an unfortunate situation. He has settled into rescue and won our hearts. He is hoping to find a family of his own!
A note from the foster: With a name like Diesel, one would expect him to be rough and tough, but don't be fooled! He is the most gentle shepherd mix one would hope for. His long and thin stature and the way he prances around light on his feet, gives you the impression he is a touch fragile. That just means there might be more of him that needs love and protection as moves his way through this wild ride we all call life. He is working on leash manners, minimizing barking, and basic commands such as sit, no, and down. However, he excels at sleeping in his house (aka crate), playing and being friendly with dogs of all ages and sizes, and probably most important, giving all the love a canine owner could ask for and then some. He would do best with an area to stretch his long legs and fly with his easy going free spirit, so an area to run would be ideal. Although not tested, he would probably be fine with kids of all ages, but no cats. Diesel- a sweetheart. Please consider giving him the chance of having a wonderful home he only deserves. Oh! And he'd probably be open to a new nickname at best!
Diesel is the absolute caretaker of the family. Always looking after his brothers and sisters and grooming them gently with his paws and wet kisses to make sure they are clean, happy, and healthy. A true love bug.
