Hello there, my name is Diesel. Unfortunately, my previous owner could no longer care for me, so I found myself at Animal Ark. I have to admit, I’ve become quite the volunteer favorite! I’m a down-to-earth, fun-loving boy who would make a great adventure buddy. Here’s some information that the volunteers and staff at Animal Ark want you to know about me:


Diesel is an absolute sweetheart and a bit of a “goofball,” too – the perfect combination! He’s always happy and playful and entertains you with his silly antics. He loves playing with his favorite spiky rubber ball and enjoys a good game of tug-of-war. Diesel also adores getting his neck scratched. But most of all, he LOVES going for walks! He gets so excited that he can’t help but leap up and down with joy. Despite his size, he’s excellent on a leash and always pays close attention to his surroundings. He’s also a big fan of rolling in the grass during his walks – it feels so good! And if you have treats, you’ll quickly become Diesel’s best friend. He’ll nudge your treat bag with his nose until you give in and share.


Diesel is a talented boy, too – he’s figured out how to open food storage containers and toy cabinets with hinged lids by himself! (Tip: buy locking lids). He knows all the usual commands and even shakes paws. Diesel is a friendly dog and does well when meeting new people. He would be great in a home with respectful teenagers but prefer to be the only pet. Diesel needs guidance when meeting new dogs but does well on group walks with dogs he knows and trusts. He’s a people-friendly and outgoing dog who would make an excellent addition to any family.


Diesel is hoping that you’ll come and meet him soon. He knows that once you get to know him, you’ll see what a lovely and goofy boy he is and will want to take him home. Just imagine all the rolling in the grass he’ll get to do!
