Diesel

Diesel

October 19, 2016

We adopted Diesel in July 2006 from the Toronto Humane Society. She was about 4 months old, and was she a stinker! She had a nose that would take her everywhere and an attitude to go along with it. She pulled on the leash, jumped on people, chewed anything and everything. It took almost a year to house train her, partly because she had already learned to go in the crate before we adopted her, but we also had to move less than a month after she came to us due to a fire. So with those two things, it was a challenge to get her to go outside consistently. It was a good thing she was cute! We did a lot of training with her, and she has become the most amazing girl!

She is now 10 1/2 years old, and still goes on hikes with up to 20 dogs at least 3-4 times a week, and keeps the other dogs in line. She had ACL surgery on both knees when she was 5 and 6 and has recovered beautifully. She has such a sense of humour, loves her brothers and her family. Everything we went through with her was worth it. We love her to pieces, and she has taught us so many things about dogs. She has just made my life so much better every minute she is with is!

Thank you Toronto Humane Society, for this wonderful, beautiful, amazing girl who has in both direct and indirect ways taken my life places I could never have imagined.
