Personality Color: green

Green dogs are a bit more shy and sensitive, maybe a little anxious, but are sweet and they try hard. These dogs will flourish with patient adopters providing gentle guidance and confidence building. They are likely too timid for active homes with children, and would do best in a calm, quiet home getting the TLC they deserve.

He’s super affectionate once he’s comfortable and he’s looking for a gentle person to help build his confidence. Come meet Diego today!

Dogs: Forward sniffing, humps, easily overstimulated. May be playful once comfortable. Slow intros

Diego recently had a doggy day out, here’s what the humans had to say about him:

Diego and I had a delightful time at the West Point at Eno.  He hopped right into my car, let me hook him up and sat down. He behaved well as we drove.  The windows were partially down but he was not interested in sticking his nose out.

He was terrific on his leash. Very patient as I negotiated the rocks and roots on hills. We saw a few people but he wasn’t interested in them but also did not show any fear either. He was quite interested in smelling all of the different scents.

After our hike we went to my house. I have a cat and he was quite interested in the blanket my cat likes to sleep on but did not meet my cat. He was very appropriate in the house although I did keep him on his leash because I didn’t want him to unexpectantly find the cat.

On the way to my house and on our return to the shelter he laid down in the backseat. We spent a few minutes in the play yard so he could have some time off leash. Diego is such a GREAT dog!
