Meet Diesel

7 year old Diesel has the type of personality that makes you want to baby-talk and coo to him all the time. He is sweet and sensitive and having a very hard time at the shelter. Diesel gets along with people and other dogs, but it's been a whole lot of a big changes for this sensitive pup. He was surrendered when his former owner could no longer care for him while taking care of her father with cancer. Diesel is struggling and we hope to get him out of the shelter and into a love home as quickly as can be. PLEASE SHARE!!

Mount Vernon Animal Shelter wrote, " Diesel is a 7 year old boxer mix who isn’t doing so well in the shelter. He was surrendered because the owner has been taking care of her father with cancer, and Diesel showed separation anxiety in the home when left alone. The owner was always with him before that, and three months before being surrendered is when he started showing signs of separation anxiety.

Diesel is a very timid boy and sweet. He’s a volunteer favorite and he walks well on leash as well. And he's house trained. We’ve tested him with dogs and he did well. He's even hung out with a puppy who we tested him with. (Of course we would need to do a meet and greet with any potential adopter to make sure the resident dog is a fit.) But everyone loves him as he is so sweet and well mannered. He would really do best in a home where someone isn’t gone for too long at a time."

To adopt Diesel, please email Megan at with any questions or to submit your application.
