This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.
Diesel 15-203 is a 2-year-old neutered and up-to-date purebred Golden Retriever. He is about 60 pounds and has a beautiful, soft coat that is hard to resist. He is an absolute sweetheart and he is very much a love and stays close to his humans for endless affection. Diesel has been briefly around children of many ages and has been extremely gentle and tolerant with all ages. He gets along well with both large and small dogs in his foster home. He doesn't show any interest in toys or playing fetch. It is believed that he must have had some training in the past and is treat/food-motivated. He knows the basic commands: sit, down, stay (sort of), and maybe others. Since being in foster care, Diesel only went in a kennel the first day for a couple of hours. He's been great with free roam of the house and is house-trained.
Despite being the most handsome and sweet dog you can imagine, there are a couple of things that Foster Mom is working on with him. Diesel does like to counter-surf and greatly enjoyed a large piece of chocolate zucchini cake a couple of days ago when everyone was gone for the day. Luckily, he didn't get sick. He wasn't so lucky a few days earlier ago when he knocked over the kitchen garbage can while the family was out and ate a leftover pork roast with potatoes and a couple of leftover burrito bowls. Needless to say, someone had quite the tummy ache and made a mess on the living room floor the next day. So, Foster Mom has learned to keep open food off the counters and yummy smelling snacks out of the kitchen trash when no one is watching him. Diesel has also climbed over the wooden fence/gate twice. Both times, someone was in the front yard and he was in the back. He didn't bark or cry while he was in the yard, but definitely wanted to be with people, so he climbed the fence. Because of this, a fence taller than 42" is recommended.
Diesel is going to make someone a fantastic companion. Please give him your thoughtful consideration as he is just waiting for his forever family to love.
