Diesel's motto is "All you need is love...and bubbles!" This pint-sized boy finds joy in the simplest of things -- mushing his face in the grass, playing in the sandbox, and walking with his humans. Though, bubbles just might be at the top of his list. He can't resist the fun of trying to pop all those shiny, flying balls!

When it comes to love, Diesel has an extremely big heart and shows it through kisses! He loves to return the love shown to him. Whether snuggling, offering belly rubs, or dolling out treats, you can expect him to sneak in a kiss or two. That's his way of saying, "Thanks for loving me!"

Diesel is ready for his forever home and is working on some skills to impress his new parents. He walks beautifully on leash, knows "sit," and is perfecting "down." When it comes to other fur siblings, Diesel can get a bit excited and want to rough house. He isn't as open to taking play cues so being the only fur kiddo in the house would be the best setup.

If you have love to give and willing to play with bubbles, Diesel would love to meet you!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
