Diggers was dumped in a small town near Texarkana. Luckily an animal friendly woman set out to help him; however on one side of her lived a person who threatened to 'fill him with buckshot' and on the other side lived a person who just offered to put him down 'the country way'. UGHHHHH. Luckily his foster moved heaven and earth to try to ensure Diggers' safety. She had him fully vetted, crate trained him during times she worked, and kept him safe for several months. Now that Diggers is healthy, he is ready for his new home!
Diggers enjoys playing ball although he is not overly active. He is crated when his foster works and is very calm in his crate. He enjoys playing ball with her grandson when the grandson visits. Diggers sits patiently when he sees his leash, but needs to work on not pulling on leash during walks. He is crate and potty trained! Diggers is very loyal to his people and really enjoys being around them.
