Meet Diego

Born July 2018, Diego was surrendered to a shelter when his family moved. He appears to have mostly lived outside. He is now in a foster home and has been good in his crate and goes outside to go potty. In a new environment, Diego will need to continue this (crate=>outside) as well to set him up for potty training success and help with decompression. Life can be exciting for a young pup.

Diego will need enrichment: sniffing, hiking, natural chews, and he loves Kongs! He also needs to continue to be reinforced for calm behavior and nurture his inner couch potato. He would love nothing more than to cuddle up to you.

Diego has learned that car rides are fun. He would benefit from someone who enjoys hiking and opportunities to sniff on nature trails (which is like reading a good book). He enjoys exercising, sniffing, and then resting.

Diego is sweet and energetic (typical at this age). He is eager to learn, earn treats, and bond with a human companion using positive reinforcement training. He could also live with a female dog or have access to a dog friend. Diego previously lived with another dog. No toddlers or small pets, please.

He does well with respectful children.
