My name is Diesel (a) - please adopt me

Update: Diesel is now in our kennels, he has also now been neutered

Diesel is a big happy, handsome lad who showed a very friendly temperament throughout our volunteer’s visit.

Diesel barked loudly when our volunteer knocked on the door but as soon as the door opened he was immediately very friendly towards our volunteer.

Diesel was initially rather excited and bouncy, but this
was very clearly good natured and he settled down very quickly. Diesel’s owner says he is friendly towards children, however due to his size and exuberance if there were children in any new home they would need to be older.

Diesel has not lived with other dogs, but his owner says that he has socialised and played well with a number of dogs. Diesel is too strong for his female owner, so he has not been getting walked for some time. Our volunteer walked Diesel and found that Diesel looked happy and confident but that he pulled strongly on the lead. However, Diesel was happy to change directions and follow when our
volunteer needed him to do so. During the walk another dog had a run and bark at Diesel from the opposite side of a garden railings. The other dog was plainly visible and only a few feet away, however Diesel didn't bark back or try to lunge at it. He reacted very calmly and our volunteer was able to steer him away from the other dog without difficulty.

Diesel’s owner says that he does bark for a brief period if he is left at home on his own, but that this settles down after about ten minutes. Diesel will also, on occasions, bark if his owner is at home but he can’t get to her in a separate part of the house. However, Diesel sleeps in a separate room from his owner and has accepted this and does not bark then, so he seems to have the ability to learn and accept identified boundaries.

Diesel has not travelled in a car for some time. His owner states that when he did so in the past he would move from the back to the front beside his owner because they had no dog guard.

Diesel is being rehomed due to upcoming changes in his owner’s circumstances and because she believes Diesel would benefit from being with someone who can exercise Diesel properly.

Could you offer this happy, friendly boy a new home?
