Meet Diesel!

My name is Diesel and my foster mom says I am faster than a diesel train engine. I am 1.5 years old and a 47lb yellow male lab mix. My owner surrendered me to DLRR when I got sick and could not care for me. The wonderful DLRR people helped me get well. I went to an animal dermatologist and she said I have Vasculitis and gave me medicine to heal and control it. I am learning how to play doggie games with my big brother Churchill. We love to run in the backyard every morning chasing each other. He needs the exercise. I am learning to play with doggie toys. My brother Churchill taught me to play tug and I like that. I just learned to play with a ball and have fun rolling it on the floor. My foster mom laughs when she watches. Ask her to show you a video. I know some basic commands like sit and stay. Sit is my favorite, especially for a treat or dinner. I hurry into my kennel at night when it is time for sleep because I get a goodnight cookie from my foster dad. I enjoy trips in the car and walking on a leash. I do not know if I like to swim but think I would like to learn. I am smart and curious about everything. I have loved meeting children at the Saturday Meet & Greets. I get along with dogs although I may be shy at first. I am not sure about cats. I have all my shots and I am chipped. I need to be on maintenance meds because of my Vasculitis. Please call to meet me or come to the next Meet & Greet. Please be my furever family and share my love❤️
