A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Easy peasy Diesel is a debonair pooch so enjoyable to spend time with. Everything in him evokes spring and summer, lazy days on the beach, fun activities and cuddly times on a sofa while reading a book. I love his coloring, flame and white wrapping a slightly chunky body, his enticing eyes and his almost always present smile and wagging tail. Diesel so enjoys company, loves treats (he does sit for them) and is quite a pro at standing hugs. He is never pushy. He is a very good walker, likely house trained as indicated by his former owner and civil to other dogs met in the street or the park. Diesel was living happily with a young child, was welcoming of strangers and mingled nicely with female peers. Diesel is the perfect fuel that will put your days in happy motion and brighten your life with his friendly, engaging and loving ways. Come and meet this gentle giant , your new forever best friend, at the Manhattan Care Center

For a New Family to Know : Diesel has been kept as a mostly indoors dog. He likes to follow his owner around the house, but sometimes stays in his favorite spot. He doesn’t play with toys but likes to run. He pulls very hard on his leash, but will immediately stop if his name is called. When off the leash, he stays by his owners side until he says “go ahead.” When Diesel is running free, he always runs back if he hears his name is called. He also knows the cue for “stop, sit, come,” He sleeps under his owners bed. He eats both wet and dry dog food twice a day. He likes snacking on bacon bits, chicken, and beef. He’s house trained, and goes to the bathroom on the grass. He sometimes goes into the garbage when left alone, but its rare. He was previously crate trained.
