Pet of the Week: Meet Diesel, a dog with a very enthusiastic tail!

Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – Diesel is an 8 year old dog with a love of life! Lee Chambers from Dakin Humane Society is here to introduce us to this sweet guy.

Pet Stats
Name: Diesel
Breed: Pit bull mix
Age: 8 years
Sex: Male
Color: Tan with black


Diesel is winning hearts at Dakin among our volunteers and staff. Now it’s time for him to win an adopter’s heart! This guy is very sweet and well-mannered. He is snuggly, always smiling, and his tail whirls around in a circle when he’s happy, which is always. Diesel needs to be in a home without other dogs, but he’s fine with cats (he basically ignores them!). If you have kids, it’s a good idea to bring them down to Dakin in Springfield so they can have a meeting with Diesel first to make sure everyone gets along fine. Diesel is strong with his toys and shreds ’em easily, so forget about tennis balls and rubber toys, they’ll be history! Come shake paws with him at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption Center.
