Pet of the Week: Diesel

by RestonNow.com Sponsor — March 1, 2017 at 1:45 pm 1 Comment

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

This week’s Pet of the Week is Diesel, available for adoption from the Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association. Here is what his foster mom, Lucinda, had to say about him:

Diesel loves going for hikes and runs, and will be a terrific companion for someone who enjoys the outdoors with him. Despite his energy, he is calm when at home and has been given free rein of the house at night with no issues. He is crate-trained and housebroken.

Diesel came to us very overweight, but has started to slim down. His forever home should be committed to maintaining his activity so he can get to the vet’s recommended weight. Diesel is about 2 1/2 years old and weighs about 42 pounds.

Diesel has barked at some tall men and a few dogs, probably due to previous experiences. He’s been great with our dog but I don’t think he’d be good with cats or small kids. He’ll benefit from some training and positive reinforcement to overcome some bad habits, like pulling on walks. I think his new home should have some experience with working dogs.

He loves the water and riding in cars.

Diesel is being fostered in Reston. Questions? Email sendamessagetoadam@gmail.com or submit your application now.
