Diesel Dan

Great news!  Diesel Dan has been adopted by a wonderful family. Check back for pictures and the whole story.

If there was an award for the itchiest dog, I bet I would win! My folks kept clothes on me and an inflatable collar on my neck to keep me for scratching myself raw. They tried all kinds of food, shampoo and medicine. That made me sort of high maintenance. And when my dad lost his job and we had to move in with some family, there was no place for me or money to take care of me.

So today I joined rescue. I cried, my parents cried, the man who met me cried. But I am at the rescue vet now and they have already given me some medicine to make me feel better. They promised they would help me and my skin. I can’t wait to stop itching.

But here is what you need to know about me. My name is Diesel Dan. I am 8 years old and I am on the smaller size for a Bulldog. I only weigh 43 pounds. I am a dark brindle and love everybody and everything. You won’t have to take me on long walks or spend a lot of time playing fetch, although I do like to play a little. I am content just spending time laying next to you or even better, in your lap.

So soon I will be ready to leave the clinic and find my perfect family. Could that be yours?

4/7/19 Update:  Diesel Dan has been with us a week and he has been the perfect little houseguest. He’s only had one accident inside and that really was my fault. We are happy to report that his skin and coat are improving every day. No more life preserver needed! T-shirts aren’t really necessary, but how can you resist this cutie dressed up?

Diesel has a good appetite and we feel he will put on a couple of much needed pounds in no time. His huge feet says he needs to be bigger, but not too much. Diesel is getting along wonderfully with his foster siblings, though he does love to follow his humans around room-to-room, hanging back just a bit as he’s still a little shy. Diesel is a seasoned Bulldog at the age of 8, but don’t let the age fool you…the boy can get around. He has no problem jumping up on the couch to snuggle in, or tucked into the office chair as you do your work.
