Diesel came to NMDR with zero trust in humans. While he still has many reservations, he has learned so much from other dogs and our rehab team. He LOVES to go outside and run and play with his friends. Diesel is definitely the life of the party and has a whole posse of friends that follow him around the yard hoping that they will be next to get his play time. He is curious about everything and will explore for hours. Diesel is a happy guy that loves life and treats. He gets along great with other dogs and another dog in the home will be required. He definitely needs a home with a person that has experience with his special needs, NO children, and a very securely fenced yard where he can work on his potty training skills. If you would like to help Diesel continue his rehabilitation in your home and help him become the confident, happy little guy he deserves to be, please ask to meet him by filling out an application at

Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 6 years old; homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as housetraining and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
