Meet handsome Diesel. Diesel was adopted as a puppy from TAPS and returned at a year old for increasing aggression toward the other dog in the home. Diesel's behavior deteriorated quickly in the kennel environment and he struggled with humans and animals alike. We sent Diesel to a board and train program where he excelled and the trainer thought he would succeed with another dog and Diesel was quickly adopted and then quickly returned for aggression toward the other dog in the home. He does seem to do well with short interactions, on walks, etc. so adopters would not have to worry about taking him for walks in their neighborhood.

We are continuing to work on building Diesel's confidence and he is happy and relaxed with human attention but to be successful, he does need to be the only pet in the home. Diesel continues to exhibit significant kennel stress and doesn't show well in his kennel. Please ask to see him outside of his kennel before ruling him out.

Diesel is a pitbull mix so adopters must be at least 21 years of age, a homeowner and have prior pet experience. Only applications with no other pets will be considered for Diesel, no exceptions.

Diesel is looking for a family to love, are you the one pet home for him?
