Diesel

Diesel absolutely adores people! It looks like he’s never been shown how to greet people politely though, because he does jump up and that big strong head of his can hurt if he accidentally head butts you! Diesel is a very licky boy and loves having a tickle. Ideally, Diesel would like to live with someone with bull breed experience who understands his clumsy enthusiasm and who will put time into his training. He’s got so much potential.

Diesel is really dog friendly and could share his home with other dogs. He has great doggy manners and will listen to other grumpy dogs if they tell him to back off.

Diesel’s super keen on balls – he’ll sit and wait for you to toss one to him…. and then he shreds it! We don’t think Diesel has ever been shown how to play but we do know that it’s never too late to learn. He’s really focussed on toys and they make a great reward for good behaviour. Make sure you stock up on the toughest of toys though! We’ve noticed that Diesel will look for branches on trees low enough for him to hang on (this has probably been encouraged/taught) and when he can’t find one, he redirects and bites his lead instead. He’ll need calm distraction and plenty of praise to help break that habit.

Diesel travels so well in the car, he settles perfectly in the crate, you don’t even know he is there, he just loves to watch the world go by. When we pulled up at traffic lights, he did bark at a motorcyclist who was right behind us but when a motorbike passed us whilst we were on a walk, he was completely fine.
Whilst out on walks, Diesel doesn’t show much interest in other dogs, he’s too busy sniffing. He is strong on the lead but much more manageable when he wears a harness.
Diesel can be a calm boy but high pitched voices can make him hyper. He’s not keen on hands or out stretched arms going over his head – he thinks this is his chance to reach up and mouth/grab your arm and although this doesn’t hurt, we need someone to understand that if we show consistent calm behaviour, he will respond in like. Diesel doesn’t have an ounce of malice in him, he’s just never been given the guidance all dogs need.
