Diesel - 2 years old (Fostered in Sherrills Ford, NC)


9/8/19: Diesel's first week with us was a fun one. This high energy boy is a total love bug and cuddler and just wants to be with the pack. HIs Temp Foster Mom said he got along very well with his fur brother and sister, although he commandeered their red ball with the handle (his favorite toy). When walking in the neighborhood he has gotten along with the dogs and people he has met. He responds very well to his name, is incredibly gentle when taking a treat and is quick to learn. He has a lot of energy and would do well with fur siblings to help burn it off. Older children (10+) would be best for him because when he plays he likes to rough house like most boxers do and uses his mouth when playing. A large fenced in yard would be good for him, or anywhere he can run, and run, and run. He is quickly learning to go in his crate, and cheese really helps with that effort.

Diesel likes to follow you around the house to see what you’re doing and to help you even when you don't need it. When FM or FD leaves the house he goes to the window and cries for them. We have ventured out to dinner, Petco, and Lowes and he was great in all of those environments. He needs to learn about personal space because when he greets anyone he is so happy to see them that he wants to climb right up on them for kisses. He loves attention and body contact (he's a leaner). He likes to share the bed but is a squirmy wormy bed hog, so it's best to have a big bed for this boy. He walks well on a leash until he sees something, someone, some dog, some bird...you get the idea. He was great walking around the stores and seemed to be happy strolling by my side and kept his happy dance to just the folks who came up and greeted him.

His name could easily be Rocket because he is FAST! He has slipped by me twice and is gone like he was shot out of a cannon. Getting him back wasn't easy, he was off to socialize with the neighbors dog and anyone that was around, but he loves cheese so that was the key to getting him to slow down enough to catch him. He is very curious and is interested in just about everything. He LOVES his big red ball with the handle.
