Diesel is a 7 month old crossbreed (may have some American bulldog in the mix). Diesel is currently in foster in Gloucester.

The Diesel Fact File
Dog status: Excellent
Cat status: Excited but workable
Child status: Very good but he is a bouncy guy so no under 6's
House training: 99%
Home alone: Learning to be left and time will need to build gradually. Not for a full time worker.
Basic training: Diesel is a blank canvas!
Image

Ooooooooooh look at that cheeky little face. Irresistable. Diesel is everything a pup should be, silly, naive, comical, clumsy and best of all fun fun fun. He absolutely adores people and has been a real asset at fundraising events with his little yellow I need a home coat. He pulls in the crowd and greet young and old like his long lost buddy. Diesel is good with children and can be rehomed with children over the age of 6. However we have to bear in mind he is a young and boucny dog who may play bite and knock children over without meaning to.

Diesel is very good with other dogs and loves their company both out on walks and in the home. He can be rehomed with existing dogs or as a single dog if he has plenty of company and mental stimulation.

Image

Diesel is living with cats and he is not averse to a good old chase and bounce around them. He means no harm to them but he is a large boy. He could be rehomed with cats who are used to large dogs (as he would probably terrify a nervy cat with his antics).

Diesel has had very little training and input before he came in to our care so he will be a blank canvas for someone to enjoy training and shaping for the future. Attending training classes/ one to ones with Diesel will be a condition of his adoption as it is for all pups we rehome.
Diesel is a strong dog and does pull on the lead. He will need further training in this department. However off lead he is fantastic, does not stray far and has good recall.

Diesel is just at the end of his teething and there is no point in denying he has enjoyed exploring the world with his mouth while his teeth cut through! The house he moves in to will need to be puppy proofed to make sure that precious things such as posh shoes and remote controls are keep up away from nosey pup. Diesel does also use chewing for a coping mechanisms when he is bored and alone. He has been crate trained by his foster home meaning the furniture is safe but he needs good quality chew toys and preferably stuffed activity toys such as a Kong to keep him busy. Diesel is a social creature and and time alone needs to be built gradually for him so that he learns his new owner will always return. In his short life he has undergone a number of moves from his original owner to the pound then our emergency kennel to his foster home and now on to his new home (preferably with you ) so he may take a little time to settle in to a new routine and learn the ropes.

If you are looking for a dog who will stay quietly on the sidelines of life you have come to the wrong place............. If you are looking for your new best bud who will loyally and lovingly share your life right in the thick of the action get your application form in quick.

Please note that as Diesel is a cross we do not know how big he will be when he is fully grown.

Diesel Fact File

Breed -Crossbreed
Sex - Male
Age - 5 mths approx
Dog Friendly - Yes very
Cat Friendly - Does chase
People Friendly - Yes but a little nervous with new people at first
Child Friendly - Yes but does jump up (needs training)
House Trained - Not 100% but nearly
Vaccinated - Yes fully
Neutered - No being neutered on Tues 14th Feb
Travel - Fine
Food - Eats Dry Food well (prefers it with a bit of wet mixed in)
Home alone - He can be left with other dogs for a short time 1-2 hours and lots of things he is allowed to chew and play with. He hasn't been left all alone. Tried him in a crate but constantly barks and digs to get out so haven't used it since. (possibly be able to crate train him)
Image

Darling Diesel has settling in very well and has really made himself at home. He gives gorgeous kisses and is very loving. He is a typical pup into everything and loves to chew. He is living with 5 cats at the moment and he does chase if they run also he tries to play with them if they don't! He doesn't hurt them though.

He loves to play all day long and is quite vocal when doing so. He plays lovely with my other foster dog Harvey and also my resident dog Zena.

Image

He is good off lead and recall is pretty good too. He does pull when on lead but this can be sorted with training.

Diesel would make a wonderful companion for someone. Please consider giving him a loving and caring home he deserves.

Little Diesel has just arrived at his new foster home.
He has been out on a nice walk with our resident dog Islay and they were able to walk happily next to one another.

When we got home we let them both have a run around and boy can they both run fast circles, it almost made us dizzy watching them both.

We are a little unsure as to the ABD part as when we think of ABD we think of some big dog looking similar to a boxer, however Diesel is rather small about a springer spaniel size. He reminds us both of a JRT cross.

Diesel is settling in fantastically. He loves playing with Islay and their play is so quiet the only noise is from the feet on the wooden floor. You almost hardly know that he is here as he is such a quiet little lad.
He loves meeting new dogs and every dog that we walk past he loves to greet nice and politely.

He is a great lad and will sit and wait for his dinner, he is not fussy about food and loves to eat he also loves to learn using treats. When he came to us he knew Sit and Paw, he is now learning about Down and to settle on a bed/crate.

Since arriving he has been 100% clean in the house and will ask to go out if he really needs to go. He can also sleep through the whole night (12-8), he sleeps in a crate in our room.

If you are looking for an amazing and loyal companion who is full of love and for someone to make you laugh look no further as this handsome guy will make you an amazing companion

Diesel had his first run off lead today and he had such fun chasing after Islay, his little legs couldn't keep up. I didn't get a chance to take photos/video I will try next time

We have also been leaving Diesel on his own and he is slowly learning that we will come back. He needs lots of time, love and consistency but given a chance and some time he will settle in nicely into a new routine.

Diesels lead work is coming along and he doesn't pull lots, however after he had been off lead he does pull a little more. Going to puppy classes will help him improve and he will also enjoy going along.

I can't believe it has been a week already.
Time really flies when you're enjoying yourself.

We have started to leave Diesel more and more. We can now leave him in the kitchen with our other dog for a couple of hours and a chew toy (we do leave a few kitchen roll tubes on the floor as well as he finds these good fun).
He does still initially bark but settles down after a couple of minutes (he doesn't do this as much anymore, but may take a bit of time to settle) and he will then have a snooze on the floor.

Today the weather was lovely and we decided to go out on a nice long walk to a beach area. Both dogs were fantastic they had an amazing run off lead and also met another dog out on the walk and they both came back when I called them.

This is the our first experience of water with Diesel, we thought he didn't like it, however he saw this puddle and jumped straight in and then decided that lying down in it would be really nice and cooling.

Image


We then climbed up the hill after they had a nice run around, I then tested their down stay while taking some photographs and Diesel didn't move. I was extremely impressed.
Image
Image
Image


We then had another chance to let them off lead and they had so much fun running around. I also continued to test their down stay, this time while off lead and they both continued to impress me.
Image
Image

Then we got back to the car and they jumped straight in after a nice big drink of water. I thought I would capture some more pictures of them together.

Can I please sleep now

Here is Diesels latest assessment:

Diesel is a 7 month old crossbreed (may have some american bulldog in the mix). He is in foster in Gloucestershire.

The Diesel Fact File
Dog status: Excellent, would ideally like a new home with canine company
Cat status: Excited but possibly workable
Child status: Very good but he is a bouncy guy so no under 6's
House training: Good
Home alone: Learning to be left. Time will need to build gradually. Not suitable for a full time worker.
Basic training: Diesel knows: Sit, Down, Stay, Recall.Diesel is good on the lead. He can initially be strong however he relaxes very quickly and this will be something that can be worked on easily with training.


Ooooooooooh look at that cheeky little face. Irresistable. Diesel is everything a pup should be, silly, naive, comical, clumsy and best of all fun fun fun. He absolutely adores people and has been a real asset at past fundraising events with his little yellow I need a home coat. He pulls in the crowd and greet young and old like his long lost buddy. Diesel is good with children and can be rehomed with children over the age of 6. He does jump up but it is not very often as we have been teaching him not to (he only gets attention when 4 feet are on the ground). The family would need to know that he might initially jump up. ľ When out with 2 children who visit his foster home on a walk he didnĺt jump up once on them he just ran around with them and the other dogs.

Diesel is very good with other dogs and loves their company both out on walks and in the home. He would be ideally suited to having canine company in his new home. He is happier being left without humans if he has doggy company.

Diesel previously lived in a foster home with cats but is not at the present time. He was good with them but not averse to a good old chase and bounce around them. He means no harm but he is a large boy. He could be rehomed with cats who are used to large dogs (as he would probably terrify a nervy cat with his antics).

Diesel is just at the end of his teething and there is no point in denying he has enjoyed exploring the world with his mouth while his teeth cut through! The house he moves in to will need to be puppy proofed to make sure that precious things such as posh shoes and remote controls are keep up away from nosey pup. Diesel can also use chewing for a coping mechanisms when he is bored and alone. He has been crate trained by his foster home meaning the furniture is safe but he needs good quality chew toys and preferably stuffed activity toys such as a Kong to keep him busy. Diesel is a social creature and and time alone needs to be built gradually for him so that he learns his new owner will always return. In his short life he has undergone a number of moves from his original owner to the pound then our emergency kennel to his foster home and now on to his new home (preferably with you ) so he may take a little time to settle in to a nw routine and learn the ropes.

If you are looking for a dog who will stay quietly on the sidelines of life you have come to the wrong place............. If you are looking for your new best bud who will loyally and lovingly share your life right in the thick of the action get your application form in quick.

Please note that as Diesel is a cross we do not know how big (or small!) he will be when he is fully grown.

Diesel is such a super lad, he seems to have settled really well into our house now, I think he might be a bit in love with Islay as they spend so much time together and they love to snuggle up together and give kisses. I think he would benefit from living with another dog to show him the correct behaviours as he learns things so quickly when we get Islay to show him.

We now leave him quite regularly in the kitchen with our dog and
Lots of entertainment in the form of a nylabone and 2 balls filled with some food and he seems to love this. He is happy to be left for anywhere between 1-6 hours he has only been left once for 6 hours, the usual amount of time is 2-3 hours and he has been fab.
He has been clean whenever we return home. He does need to be let out before you leave.

At night he is great, we have a crate in our room and we leave the door open. He has the first part of his night in there and then when we are asleep he will jump up onto the bed and cuddle up as close as he can
He can also hold his bladder the whole night (we do lift his water up after dinner) he currently can hold 9-10 hours

If anyone is looking for a loving companion who just loves to cuddle look no further as diesel is the best cuddler

Forgot to mention he is also quite small and we don't imagine him to grow much more. He is roughly the height of a spaniel.
He also weighs 18kg do he really is a little lad smile.gif
