Dog of the Week (May 16, 22): Diesel
Some of us at the shelter gave Diesel a nickname: Lazarus. He contracted Parvo, an awful disease that is often fatal to puppies. We sent him to the vet, hoping against hope, but heard nothing. And so we assumed the worst, and grieved. With his friendly, outgoing demeanor, Diesel had been loved by all.
Then, out of the blue, Diesel returned to us, as bouncy and energetic as ever. (He' s named after a fuel, after all!) Now we love him even more. Indeed, he is the picture of health. Just look at his lovely coat and expressive, beautiful eyes! Diesel is about 5 months old, currently weighing 9 kilos, or close to 20 pounds. We expect him to be a medium-sized dog when fully grown. Perhaps a Pointer mix, his short white hair forms the perfect background for his large chocolate spots and his chocolate-dipped head. He' s irresistible!
Friendly, calm, playful and curious, Diesel is a happy puppy who learns quickly. He gets along great with other dogs, frolicking in the play yard with 16 other puppies and small dogs. Although not trained, he walks well on a leash without pulling. He even likes to be bathed and groomed, so he'll likely love the water and be a perfect companion to rivers, lakes, the ocean...anywhere.
Diesel, the resilient puppy with the incredibly strong disposition who survived the worst to return stronger and more in love with life than ever...would you like such powerful fuel in your life? Then, adopt Diesel.
