My story

*Diego's adoption fee has been WAIVED if you are approved to adopt!*DiegoBreed: Boxer, Shepherd mix Housetrained: Completely housetrainedCompatibility with other animals: Best as the only petCompatibility with children: Best in a home with no children or children visitors Knows: Sit, shake, stay, touch, go-to-placePreferred home environment: Fenced-in yard requiredIntake date/origin: August 2015, transfer from an overcrowded shelterVetting: Already neutered, microchipped, and UTD on vaccines including rabiesAdoption fee: SPONSORED BY A GENEROUS SUPPORTERLocation: Shelter facilityMeet handsome, independent Diego. This guy is an amazing dog for the right person. What do we mean by amazing? Well, Diego can pretty much take care of himself - he is content just to play by himself and find the comfiest couch to lounge upon. Born in 2014, Diego hasn't come across the right person yet, but we're hopeful that there's someone out there for him.The right home for Diego consists of one person who wants a dog just to have the company of a four-legged friend. Ideally, this person would let Diego peacefully exist in the home and provide him with a few toys and access to a fenced-in backyard. While Diego does enjoy a back scratch here and there and an occasional "good boy," he really prefers to be left by himself most of the time. He also does not appreciate being restrained, making it very difficult to put a collar or leash onto him, so this is why he must have a fenced-in yard.Diego has befriended many other dogs here at the shelter. However, he can be possessive of his food, toys, and anything he claims as his (such as the couch), so he must be the only pet in a home with no children. On the plus side, Diego is completely housetrained, he knows an array of cues, and he is a highly-trainable dog.Diego has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Diego, please fill out an adoption application for him at www.lovingheartanimalshelter.org/adopt.Will you be the person to love Diego and give him a chance at a home?
