Diesel is reluctantly being given up due to his dad needing to move in with a friend before relocating out of state. He is a very handsome and big boy at 95 pounds. His birthday is 4/11/2011, which makes him 6 years old. Two years ago, he beat a dangerous fungal infection called blastomycosis, which caused him to go blind in his right eye. He has adjusted to seeing with one good eye, and we will have the vet check out his right eye to make sure it’s not causing him any discomfort. To ensure his health, Diesel will need a recheck blasto test every 6 months, which is as simple as getting a urine sample. He was overdue for this retest when he arrived, and he was unfortunately positive after a relapse. He is on the very expensive meds to fight the fungal infection, and he will have that bad eye removed in case that’s harboring some infection still.  He is on medical hold until he gets a clean bill of health, but his foster mom is absolutely in love with him, so he will probably stay in the IDR+ family. In his previous home, he enjoyed sleeping on the couch and giving paw with both paws. He has a good foundation of training, lots of vocab, and he’s eager to show it off. The surrender paperwork says he’s a quiet guy, but he will get rowdy when he finds a ray of light to chase, so do not encourage that habit. He has no history with kids, but he is said to be good with other dogs. However, he is too focused on cats. Diesel likes car rides and munching on durable bones and toys.
