found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Update 3/14/09 - Diesel has been cage free for two weeks now! He stays out during the day (behind baby gates on the main floor) and is given free roam at night. At night he and George (foster’s Dane) start out in the room with us and then head down to the couches. We have only had one incident with tearing a book apart. Nothing else bothered, just my book! I also think Diesel has a VERY sensitive stomach. For the first week or two it was all diarrhea all the time, nothing normal. We finally slowly introduced another food and he seems to be adjusting to that and his potty breaks are getting better. However, any variation from the diet upsets his stomach. Even bones (and we have tried a few different ones) get him back to the runs! So he will need to be fed a strict diet. He has put on some weight but is still very lean. Diesel is still a fast eater but has slowed down quite a bit. He has healed up nicely from his neuter and his cage sores are completely healed. He just has hairless little patches now. I would like to say keeping Diesel out of the cage has calmed him down but not really. He is more comfortable and settled but no less energy. We are still working on his manners. He is doing well but still needs work. He still wants to be directly in your face and on your lap for love and attention. He hasn't quite yet figured the cuddle up next to you or lay gently on your lap for love. He is, obviously, VERY food motivated, so we’ve been working on his manners during dinner time. On the leash, he still get overly excited when you first get him ready but once you are moving he is good. It may take few times but he does listen. One last thing, he definitely prefers women/girls over men/boys. We both train Diesel in the same way but Diesel is very protective over me and stays by my side even if his foster Dad and I are both home. He likes him but you can tell there is a preference. Inside the home he is very welcoming to both sexes after he sees us welcome them in. However, out and about is different. He has a small issue, growls and gets tense, with men and boys approaching him but nothing that isn't solved after a couple minutes of them just being present or them giving him a treat. When women or girls approach it is all love all the time. Overall Diesel is just a BIG love bug that needs a little bit of continued work! He is very willing to please.
