Just look at those ears...that smile...those eyes...I just want to eat him up he's so cute!!!

Here's what Amber Pinnon, Adoption & Volunteer Program Coordinator for Winnebago County Animal Services had to say about Diesel;

Diesel is the whole package!

This seven-year-old pup is affectionate, house trained, crate trained, lived with cats previously, has been friendly with other dogs, and is pretty much perfect. Diesel was surrendered due to no fault of his own when the owner’s landlord would no longer allow him to stay. Diesel’s previous owners reported he was stressed by small children so we’d want to make a match with older children thoughtfully. Our volunteer photographer, Connie, sent us his most recent photo session and commented “I just love Diesel-could spend all day taking pictures of his expressive face! At 7 years old his energy matches mine!”

He knows commands like SIT, SHAKE, and can’t wait to meet his new best friend. Is it you?

Here are a few more pics from Diesel's photoshoot...just to make sure you fall head over heels in love...
