Hi, I’m Diesel. I’m still in the process of learning a few things to be ready for my furever home! I’m continuing to work on walking on a  leash, my foster family says I have gotten a lot better but still need some work.  I’m just so big and get so excited, I don’t realize my own strength!  When walking by people I do better but seeing other dogs is still really, really exciting for me!   My foster mom says I talk, whine, and cry, but I don’t notice it, because I’m so EXCITED!!!  Other than that, I’m pretty amazing!
I’m good with people, even when they come to the house. I do the normal bark, bark, someone is here warning, but I settle down. I love kids! (I’ve been around two 11 year olds and one 13). I’m just a big lover – I absolutely loves spending time with people!
I have not had any problems with counter surfing, getting on furniture, or separation anxiety. My foster parents put a baby gate up in half the house to contain me – I don’t mind.
