Diesel is an approximately two-year-old Siberian Husky who was found homeless on 6th Street in Courtenay. The RCMP brought him to the BC SPCA Comox Valley & District Branch on May 9, 2011.
When Diesel first arrived, he was a little hard to handle. He did not have good dog manners and would often want to argue, rather then play, with other dogs. He wasn't familiar with walking on leash and didn't want to listen to anyone.
With a couple of weeks of dedicated staff and volunteer training, including slow introductions to suitable dogs, Diesel proved that he could learn a few new tricks.
Now, this sweet boy is absolutely wonderful and ready for a new home! He walks well on leash and enjoys the company of most medium to large breed dogs. But, he's still having trouble with the little ones.
Diesel loves to talk, especially in the morning, but usually he's quiet unless he doesn't get his daily walks.
Diesel’s new forever home should be active, understanding and have some knowledge of his breed. He's come a long way but he still isn't cat-friendly and would only do well in a home with older children.
A staff favourite, Diesel loves to be loved and enjoys his snuggle time very much.
