Diesel is such a lovable, energetic, and loving boy! He likes to be around people and he enjoys the company of other dogs--if they are game to play! He knows sit, pretty well housed trained, so long as he gets routine pee breaks and does excellent in his kennel during the day and overnight. However, we've stopped kenneling at night because he's been so good & prefers snuggling in bed. Diesel is good on a leash but very curious. Diesel has not been around cats, but we would expect he would be just fine, except very curious! Diesel LOVES toys and playing fetch! Diesel would prefer a fenced yard because he's so quick and loves to explore. Diesel enjoys a good bone or chew toy while chilling on the comfy dog bed and hanging on the couch with his foster mom. He's a fun little guy to hang out with. He has so much love to give.
Diesel is a herding breed, thus it is in his nature to want to 'herd' moving creatures the direction he wants them to go, little kids included. If you are parents of young children and are not prepared for 'herd nipping', we ask that you please consider another breed of dog. Check our list of available dogs who are not herding breeds who are better suited for families with children.
Requirements to adopt Diesel:
