Meet Adoptable Diego!
Diego is a 10-11 year old, male, brindle and white, 60lb, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, mixed breed. He comes to us from Vancouver Island where we worked with Coastal Animal Control to help get him out. Diego is a really sweet and loving boy that really likes to be close to you, wants to cuddle, and will gladly disperse kisses when given the chance. He does need some confidence building in regard to him being outside around a lot of people and other dogs, cars and so on, but he’s making great progress each day. He has had a bit of a rough go at life lately, but he’s sure opened up and has shown a very nice temperament towards people, hasn’t show any reactivity towards other dogs, although we are going slow still. He seems to be a tad leery of children, more so to their fast movements and noise. Diego is pretty good on leash, is house trained, has started to engage play, and does well left alone in the home outside of a kennel, he just looks for the nearest couch or dog bed to snooze on. He has been good with eating his food, if you touch his paws or ears, and when you ask him to do something. Diego likes to go for walks, little hikes and little adventures, but he doesn’t need much exercise to make him tired, as he is a senior boy. We really can’t say enough nice things about this gentle soul, he just needs a bit of reassurance along the way as he becomes more confident each day. We believe he would do best at this time in a fairly relaxed home with no kids. Someone who has time to spend with him and really make a bond. Diego is now accepting applications for his new home.
