Meet Diesel: Adopted!


Date of birth: 9/2011

10/2/2016: Diesel is a beautiful red and white Pit Bull. He's a super sweet-natured and sensitive guy and he loves to give kisses! He has been taking agility classes at our shelter and he LOVES it! He’s a playful guy and he loves running around on the agility course or in the yard, or going for long walks, but he also really enjoys just hanging out with people and relaxing. He’s very affectionate and he’s a favorite of many of our staff and volunteers. He’s also taken obedience classes at The Dogs’ Spot. He’s food motivated and will “sit” and “shake” for you.

Diesel is friendly with people he meets, but he is shy in new surroundings. Our staff and volunteers take him on outings to parks and events to help him get used to new things and new noises etc. He’ll need a home with someone who will be patient with him while he settles into his new home and routines and the neighborhood, but the pay off will be big because he is truly one sweet guy!

Diesel gets along well with some but not all other dogs, and he usually needs some time to get used to new dogs. If you have a dog we'd ask you to make an appointment to bring your dog in to meet Diesel to see if they could be friends. He wouldn't be a good match for a small dog and he does need a home without cats.

Diesel is 5 years old and he weighs about 65 lbs. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. He came to us from a Louisiana shelter who needed help finding good homes for some of their dogs. We were told he was house trained then, so he’ll probably just need a little time to get into a routine. Diesel has been with us for quite some time and we’d love to see him find his new home.


Please visit our web site at HSGKC.ORG for more information about our adoption process, our adoption fees and all that's included, and for a pet adoption application.

> Our goal is to send you home with a healthy pet and any information and support you may need to help your new pet adjust to his or her new home. All of our dogs & puppies have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, treated for fleas & ticks, tested for heartworms (7 mo. and over), and are on monthly heartworm preventative. Puppies who are too young to receive all the necessary puppy boosters and/or first rabies shot may be brought back to us for those vaccines at no extra charge. You will also receive a leash, collar, coupons for pet supplies and services, toys, and educational materials. And we'll give your dog a bath before he or she goes home!

> Please note that we prefer and may require a fenced yard for many of our dogs. Exceptions are made on an individual basis depending on the dog's needs, the person's dog experience, the dog's and person's activity levels, home environment and other factors.

> An application is required to adopt a pet and applicants must meet our adoption requirements. If you decide you'd like to adopt one of our dogs, we reserve the pet for you but we generally don't send the dog home with you that same day.

Thank you for searching for a shelter pet!
