51145 – Diesel
Why choose me?
Update 10/8: Diesel is in a shelter foster home. Please call the shelter at 706-613-3540 or message the Athenspets – GA Facebook page if you would be interested in meeting this GREAT guy!
Update 6/16: Diesel had a mass on his abdomen that we had removed and biopsied. Sadly, it proved to be a grade 2 sarcoma. While the mass was cleanly removed, more will recur and the median lifespan for a dog with this sort of cancer is 1 year. We’re looking for a sanctuary that can help give this sweet boy the life he deserves until the end. He is currently in a temporary foster home with other dogs and has done great with both of them, as well as with all the people he has met. (And he’s a social dog so he has met a lot of people!)
Update 4/29: Diesel is one happy, handsome, people pleasing dog! He was playing at the fence with another dog when I called him, and he came right away. He didn’t ignore me but trotted right over with a smile. He can sit, lie down, and is pretty good with stay as well. He’s a SUPER dog, and I absolutely adore him!
Diesel is so much fun! He’d been watching other dogs play in the interaction pens and was ready for a turn. Squeaky toys and treats got his attention right away, and when we weren’t playing fetch, he was sitting pretty and giving me his “I’m a good boy” look to earn treats. He is a good boy, and I had a blast being with him. Diesel was surrendered because he and another dog didn’t get along in the home. He is, however, great with kids and lived with two children ages four and six. He’s house trained and played well with the family’s puppy, but he doesn’t like cats. If you’re looking for a sweet, playful dog, Diesel is waiting to meet you!
