Hi! I’m Diesel. I’m a 12 month old Catahoula Mix who found myself without a forever home. It’s not my fault—my people decided they were leaving on a trip on Christmas Eve and they didn’t want to take me or pay for boarding. No worries, though, rescue folks found me a terrific foster home with my very own human foster mom and teenage kids!
I’m fully housebroken and crate trained (although I’d much rather be with you). I am 12 months old, 45 lbs., neutered and I have had all my shots. I’m very friendly and have energy to hike and explore with you. I’d do great with another dog who could show me the ropes. I love toys, and I love to snuggle. Time with my people is important to me!
I’m very smart and treat motivated. My foster mommy can’t let me see where she hides my treats because I’ll stalk the drawer until she gives me one. I love kids! One more thing…..sometimes I pretend I’m a cat. My favorite place to lie is on the back of the couch. Don’t tell my doggy friends though. My foster mom thinks I would do best in a home without cats because they're just too interesting and I don't like to leave them be!
Another thing you should know is that I am deaf. I don’t know what that means, as I’ve been that way since I was born. But, don’t let that stop you from considering me. I’m active and happy! (And I sleep really soundly!) I’m working on learning hand signals…...I told you I am smart.
If you are ready for a young, energetic pup who loves to snuggle, please let the people at Summit Dog Rescue know!
