Our staff has a rough job. Sometimes it is a quick attachment to a shelter pet who comes and goes too quickly, but frequently, it is the shelter pets that that are with us too long. Diesel is one of these cases. In May of 2015, Diesel was brought to the shelter after being caught by Animal Control on the street. Due to a rough past, Diesel is weary of strangers, particularly while placed inside a kennel, and may display anxiety in uncertain situations. Yet outside of a kennel, Diesel is an entirely different dog. Excitable and eager to please, Diesel loves to run and play fetch, as well as have his back scratched by anyone he can get to. While Diesel plays well with some dogs and cats, he is not comfortable with children under any circumstances. In a secure environment with those he knows, he is a loveable creature, and is very enthusiastic about earning your affection. Diesel can frequently be seen toting around a red rubber ball, his comfort item of choice – he can even be seen carrying it during bath time! Currently located at HSDC, Diesel is ready to come home with you and show you what a good friend he will be.
