He has bitten from fear in the past, but his foster has been working with him and he is muzzle trained, as a precaution we have it on him while in public and he does great with it! He will need to be muzzled when visiting the vet. He gets along great with his foster’s 6 yr. old son; however, he tried to bite a potential adoptor’s children out of fear when they first met him. Due to his fear biting please no one with young children inquire about him. The vet has said that his knees do pop in and out and care will need to be taken to ensure he does not have problems in the future.
His ideal home? Someone who is more of a homebody type, a retired person or a family with no children who understand to respect the pet’s boundaries. Someone one who is patient and is knowledgeable about working with a dog that is fearful.
Are you interested in adopting Diego or another JCAPL pet you have seen? You'll need to start by completing an adoption application, available online at our website: www.jcapl.org. There is no obligation to adopt by completing an application, however, we do recommend submitting an application as soon as you find an animal you are interested in. We review applications in the order they are received.
Completed applications can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to 919-300-5524, or delivered in person by visiting us at one of our adoption events on Saturdays at PetSmart in Garner (White Oak Shopping Center).
We will contact you as soon as possible once we receive your application for Diego.
Thanks for thinking adoption!
