When Diesel met Lulu
When we first met young Great Dane x Mastiff Mix Diesel at the pound he was terrified, and it was clear that he was very unsure of his surroundings. We knew that we had to do something to save him and so took him into foster care hoping that we could give him the second chance he truly deserved. That’s where Diesel met Lulu, a calm 18-month-old Vizsla mix who is always happy and was ready to give him the patience and kindness he needed to adjust to being in foster care.
With the assistance of Lulu and medication to help with his anxiety Diesel started to show his personality and come out of his shell. His foster carers were amazed at just how far he came in a short time, “About a week in and I really truly believe Lulu has been the most wonderful therapy dog for Diesel!! His certainly not a hundred percent but the improve on mood and willingness to come a bit closer has been AMAZING!”
Whilst Diesel is getting better slowly he will need a patient home so that he can continue to learn that everything will be ok. He will need another calm, gentle dog who can show him the way of the world.
Do you have room in your heart and home for Diesel?
Diesel is very timid and may take a while to trust his new owners. He no longer shies away from his foster parents and is starting to learn some manners like sit. Diesel is fully housetrained and travels ok in the car. He’s still a bit unsure about new situations and loud noises and so will need a safe place to go if things get a bit overwhelming. Over time, Diesel will settle in well to a new home, preferably without children, and shower you with love in time.
