Diesel

6-7-YEARS (MALE)

Rescued by Hope Rose Project

Last week I got a call that there was a pup running around my neighborhood for 3 days with a dislocated shoulder. People had been chasing him, men cornered him, & he began to feel defensive & started snapping at anyone trying to rescue him. He didn’t know they meant well since all signs are pointing to his previous family dumping him I don’t blame his trust issues. I knew I needed to be gentle & easy with my approach to gain his trust. By doing so we built an immediate positive relationship & he has not once tried to nip me, rather he fell asleep instantly in my lap. After rescuing this pup I took him to the vet where we found he was chipped and that he had a name, Diesel. I contacted his owners named Scott and Penny who “claimed” to have rehomed Diesel their dog of over 6 years because he was fighting with their other Pitbull, fair reasoning. Yet, she had no number, address, or even a name of the new family her beloved canine of over 6 years went too. Neither of the owners asked how Diesel was doing, if he was okay, even after I said he appears to be injured & has been on the run for days. Instead she said, if you can’t find the owners I would take him to the pound. I then explained the chances a 7 year old, male, injured, Pitbull that has already been biting people out of fear had in county and that it’s essentially slim to zero chance of survival... she said she couldn’t take him even to separate in a crate for a few days like they had apparently done in the past. I explained that my house is only built to support one aggressive foster at a time that me taking in Diesel would put him at risk. Penny did not care. I sent penny a nice message concluding her ownership of Diesel & letting her know how she has failed him at this time. Hopefully Penny & Scott somehow see this post & realize what they’ve done to an innocent life & do NOT make the same mistake with their other Pitbull. Thankfully Diesel was running in front of an aggressive dog trainers home. He got lucky, & is now an @angelsforpaws rescue with an amazing foster & has an awesome foster sister also former #HopeRoseRescue mama Pie.

I'd like to know more about Diesel!
