My name is Diego!
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.
Diego is a bouncy, affectionate boy who likes tennis balls and frisbees almost as much as scratches and rubs. He's happy to fetch a tennis ball and will drop it on command and sit and wait until you throw it again. He will rub his body on you and crawl in your lap with a toy. He also loves butt scratches.
Diego already knows the down, sit, come, and drop commands. He's great on a leash and has been working hard to ignore dogs when out for walks.
This exuberant dog should be the only dog in a home without cats or children. A yard with a very sturdy fence would be ideal. He will benefit from long walks or runs and from a patient handler who will help Diego learn what it's like to live in a home.
Come meet Diego and see if your home is in his future!
