(near) OKLAHOMA CITY, OK: We are trying to keep the momentum going for 7 year old Diego's adoption search. This boy has been at the shelter for 5 long years. We just learned about his story a few weeks ago and we've posted him twice so far on SSD, which has resulted in no inquiries. Diego weighs 85 pounds and loves to give people big, sloppy kisses! He is gentle, loving and still very youthful. We need your help to find Diego's happily-ever-after chapter of life. PLEASE SHARE! 💋💋💋 Misfits, Mutts & Meows wrote, "Still no inquiries for sweet Diego. We imagine that our requests for a single dog home and no interactions with other dogs is causing reluctance in people. He really is a sweet boy and is fine around most dogs, but we just never know who will make him uncomfortable.
Diego is a certified mutt consisting of ridgeback, boxer, and bully breeds. In other words, he’s absolutely perfect. Despite being in his golden years, Diego has plenty of spunk! His spurts of energy are easily quenched with a game of fetch or some wrestling with his people. Diego’s play time is promptly followed with a snooze on the couch. Diego loves all people and he is kid friendly. Diego is extremely gentle but he is a big boy so beware as he can (unintentionally) nudge smaller children to the ground with his sloppy kisses. Diego is also a fan of cats.
However, Diego is dog selective so we are asking that he be adopted into a single dog home. As a puppy, Diego was used as a bait dog. Though he was rescued out of this traumatic situation by good Samaritans, he is simply uncertain and uncomfortable around some dogs. Diego has successfully passed several levels of training – he minds and listens well, follows commands, and is very eager to please!
He is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. He is a healthy boy and all available medical records will be provided to his adopter. Diego is located in Crescent, OK; only inquiries from central #Oklahoma will be considered. We have two adoption events Diego will be at this month, on September 21st and 28th."
