Shelter Dog Saturday: Diego

diego-august2013-0756Name: Diego

Breed(s): Pit Bull/Viszla

Age: 4-6 months

Gender: Male

Diego is a sweet and plucky puppy.  He, unfortunately, didn’t seem to receive any major socialization prior to arriving at the shelter but that hasn’t seemed to affect him anyway.  He is happy to meet new people, dogs and kitties.  He isdiego-august2013-0776 incredibly gentle and very biddable when asked to do simple tasks and he picks up on cues and commands very easily.  He is very food motivated and would do well in just about any home – especially if he could be a snuggle bug, which seems to be his main goal in life when he shoves his beautiful face into your hands for attention.

If you’re interested in adopting Diego, he is available for adoption through the River Rouge Animal Shelter which is located at 100 W. Pleasant Street, River Rouge, Michigan.  You can contact the shelter by email at or by phone at 313-205-1732.

Update – September 5th!  Diego, now Rudy, was pulled by Adopt-A-Pup Rescue and is now available through them!
