Diego is a super handsome guy and has a little, cute stubby tail, that we were told he was born with. He absolutely loves back and tummy scratches and to play fetch (keep away) with his toys. He takes his treats gently and if you tell him 'wait' he will wait for an 'OK' before starting to eat his food.
Diego still has a lot of puppy energy and sometimes jumps up on people and can be a little mouthy when he's over-stimulated. He sometimes pulls when on his leash and would rather play tug of war with it. :)
He seems to do well with commands and definitely wants to please. He will be a wonderful companion once he gets in the right home where he can get more attention and exercise. This little guy is so deserving of that kind of happiness, it breaks his foster mom's heart that he has been over-looked for so long. Please consider meeting this sweet dog that desperately wants a dog-savvy owner to make him their own.
Diego gets along well with other friendly dogs that are close to his same size. If a dog is aggressive towards him, he does not fight back. He is very interested in cats, so may be too 'attentive' to live with one.
Renee D is his foster parent. The adoption fee for Diego is $200, please complete our online application formspeak to a volunteer if you are interested in adopting Diego. A volunteer will contact you.
All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
