DIEGO WAS RETURNED DUE TO ROOMMATE ISSUES. NO FAULT OF HIS OWN. ONLY HAS UNTIL 5PM THURSDAY 8/22/13!!! HELP!!
Go Diego, go!! Diego is a friendly, playful pittie mix (just look at that smile!) who has been a guest at ACCT since May 26th. He is 1-2 years old and weighs approx 50lbs. Diego is very social, loves to go for walks and is learning to walk nicely on the lead. He is really interested in meeting other dogs when he’s outside and does this adorable singing bark/yodel when you won’t let him play with the other dogs like he wants to. When he does meet them, he can sometimes be a little pushy. It depends on the dog, but he is very tolerant and would do well with a tolerant dog to play with. He’s still young and energetic and would do great with an active family. As a matter of fact, Diego is one of the go-to dogs for Hand2Paw (connecting homeless youth with shelter dogs –www.hand2paw.org). The trainer likes him because he is trustworthy and so playful. Diego can keep up with anyone and would be a perfect exercise/running buddy! He loves attention and playing fetch, and would really love a new family soon! Diego is a member of the Pen Pals program at ACCT. He has two volunteers who work with him – specifically on things that help him on becoming a better canine buddy for the lucky family who will eventually scoop him up. He is looking for companions who will give him quiet time to relax after coming home from the shelter, will continue to work with him on basic manners and obedience training (maybe in a class), and will have patience with him as he figures out how to be the best furry friend he can. If Diego sounds like the boy for you, please bring the family (and any resident dogs) down to ACCT to meet him. His pen pals can provide you more information via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Once you meet him, you may soon realize you can’t live without that contagious smile! check out the videos! enjoying a chew:http://instagram.com/p/b1iAxRCpSP/ playing with his buddy Chooch: http://instagram.com/p/b1lsG4ipXT/ and his friend Amber: http://instagram.com/p/bZDqONCpTP/beetledancing: http://instagram.com/p/b1in7CipTM/
