Default Update: photos video of Diesel..

Well my neighbour says she has a home lined up for him, a friend of her aunt with 3 acres of fenced land, no other animals, had a dog that died recently that she had rescued that she have had for 6 years, loving all the big dogs and apperently has a lot of patience.. I asked her if I could go along to drop him off she said yes.. so I really hope this is the real deal..

however I took him for a walk today, working him with a friend of mine that I can trust not overdoing it. The training was just to let my friend say hi, a small scratch and stop/igonring Diesel, creating a space, so Diesel had to go to him, got some nice encouragement but that we stopped before Diesel had the chance of getting to intense and after that go nervous, cause he kinda builds himself up..

After about 1 hour, 1,5 he could belly rub Diesel which there is only a handfull of people that can do.. usually he goes stiff and tuck the tail after a lil bit and you see his whole demenaor change but nothing..

By giving him space and take it slow he really took on tomy friend and he's not too keen on men.. I even started punching my friend a lil bit, gave him a couple of hugs, too see if Diesel would get aggitated but nothing, he just sat there and of course he got a lot of praise.. I want him to be desensitised to people as much as possible so the new owner get as little trouble as possible..

He has also gone a lot thinner, my neighbour says she feeds him 3 cups a day, 3 times a day, he had problems eating so I asked her to elevate the bowl and when she did he ate better, he swolloed a lot of air and was choking at first.. she says he was at the vets and that she has dewormed him so I dont know.. I just know he's too thin..

on the vide I posted he's off lead, and when you hear me say ah ah it's people coming walking but I had very little battery, but he's just so good off lead it isn't even funny.. Im hoping to be able to take a better video another day...

here first is a few pictures that I took about a year ago, my first walk with him..







And here he is nw..

For Diesel's sake and yours, I hope it works out Monkey. He looks like a very intelligent, eager to please dog in the video and photos.

oh he is.. that is the thing, he's so smart, kind, gentle, everything.. that's why it frustrated me even further that they have failed with him.. and thank you for you well wishes, he needs it.. I hope I get to go there and do the introduction and show her how he's been trained and handled so they get the best start possible, I just hope it's TRUE..

He's a cute dog . You use the same funny little clicky sound I do - haha

Looks like a good boy to me too bad ppl have his head boogered up . I think he'd do fine with anyone that had an ounce of doggie sense .
