Adoptable Large Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrainedPrefers No Cats

Meet Diesel! This handsome American Staffordshire Terrier is looking for a forever home! Diesel is approximately 3 years old and 65 pounds of fun. Diesel was picked up with his brother as a stray by Detroit Pit Crew.

Without going into detail, it is clear that Diesel didn’t have a great start in life and as a result suffers some anxiety when meeting new people and going new places, so his new family should be willing to work with him on this. NOTE: Diesel has not shown any aggression as a result of his shyness. His anxiety has not shown itself in reactiveness or instability but instead in cowering and shaking. He definitely benefits from having another dog with him, so a home with another dog(s) would be best. His new home should also be willing to work with him on his confidence building. Due to these issues, a home without young children would be best. Once he does warm up to people though, he is a great cuddler and very obedient!

He is a VERY sweet boy, who just needs to know he can trust people before he opens up to them. Due to his anxiety about new people and places, multiple meet and greets with his new home would be required. If you have an overly confident dog who could use a side-kick, Diesel could be your guy!!

Diesel is available for adoption through Pet Tales Rescue in Grand Rapids, MI. Please go to www.pettalesrescue.com and fill out an application. His adoption fee is $250. Thank you!
