This is diesel. He's 13. He is deaf. He is too skinny. He has bad hips and joints. He has rotten teeth. He has lumps all over his frail body. He was never loved ... .
He was on his way to the city kill shelter because his owner dumped him with his dad, and his dad couldn't take care of him. We couldn't let that happen so we stepped in.
He went to his foster home and had his first bath and ear cleaning of his life. He was playful with her dogs and is enjoying all of the attention he is getting the past couple of days â¤ï¸
Friday he has his first doctor appointment. It's safe to say it will be the first one he's ever had. Please donate to diesels care. He is physically a mess of a dog but we would like for him to be able to stick around long enough to actually feel what it's like to have someone love him.
