A volunteer writes: Joining us with his housemate Layla (A1101183), Diesel is a gorgeous, calm and quiet boy. Like Layla, he’s up front in his kennel when he sees a person with a leash, ready to go out for a walk. Rocking a coat against the cold winter day, his leash manners are lovely, he doesn’t mind being tethered for photos, and makes wonderful soft eye contact as I take pictures. He enjoys treats, taking them gently after a ‘sit’, and we’re told that he also knows ‘shake paw’. As we walked back to the building, Diesel got some ice between his toes and had no problem with me handling his feet to clean them. Such a good boy! Off leash in a pen, his head is in my lap for some petting, and he enjoys a good massage as he leans into me. We’re told he’s not good with kids, played hard with his housemate Layla and was respectful of her, isn’t good with cats, is “very housetrained” and is well behaved when left alone in the house. When our time together was over, Diesel hopped right back into his kennel with a wave of his tail. His gorgeous amber eyes met mine in a soft ‘see you again, new friend’. Diesel is, of course, looking for a forever friend, I’m just temporary, so, ask to meet him today. Another volunteer writes: Diesel means LOVE so if you want to feel like the most important gal (or guy) in the world then just follow my lead, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! Step 1: Sit down on the ground…Step 2: Encourage Diesel onto your lap…Step 3: Bask in the endless snuggles and adoration of your new BFF! Diesel blew me away with his amazingly polite ‘sit’ and ‘give paw’, he’s a total pro and solemnly follows the commands on cue, with or without a treat on offer. His smooth looks are as genteel as his manners but the best part of a date with Diesel is definitely the snuggles. Nothing will warm your heart more than stroking Diesel’s sweet face as he rests his chin on your chest and those soulful eyes gaze straight into your soul. To meet him once is to love him forever so run, don’t walk, to our Manhattan Care Center and enjoy your very own ‘Diesel moment’ today.

Summary: Diesel was very distracted throughout the assessment, focusing on things besides the assessor. He became a bit stiff when his paw was handled for squeeze; we cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs.

The behavior department recommends allowing Diesel an appopriate decompression period, and recommends that future introductions be conducted with polite dogs on a one-on-one basis.
