Diego is a people lover who thrives on companionship. Every night he jumps into bed with us and we send him to his own bed. Every morning when we wake up he’s there between us. He spends his evenings sitting with us on the couch with his head in one of our laps. Before he came to us he was boarded at a vet clinic for two weeks where he was kept in a 6 ft square pen. When we picked him up they described him as being a very high energy dog but when he got to our home and was allowed to romp with our Brittany in a large fenced yard, he calmed down considerably. When he’s not playing with our Brittany or romping outside in our fenced in area, he likes to sit in a chair by the window and watch the critters at our bird feeders. He likes to go for walks and does pretty well on a leash. He has a great nose and loves to sniff things out. He kennels up well, and has never had an accident in the house so we know he was well house broken. We’ve never seen Diego with cats or kids, but he seems friendly to other people when they visit. As far as cats, he probably would want to play and chase them, but he is a pleaser so I’m sure he could be taught to get along with them. Diego probably wouldn’t do well if he was left alone all day. He would miss his people and also build up an enormous amount of energy which would have him bouncing off the walls. Given enough exercise, companionship, and cuddling, he would be a great addition to any family. Diego was found without a collar or ID, running loose on a highway. He was very skinny and had a swelling on his muzzle. He was taken to the vet clinic in town where he spent the next two weeks while they tried to find his owner. The swelling on his nose was attended to, but nothing was found. He had his distemper and rabies shots and now has been neutered and chipped. The vet guesses he is about 9 months old. He is starting to put on weight, but he has a ways to go. A few days after we got him home we noticed something coming out of the bump on his muzzle. It was a porcupine quill! We had the vet check it out and they could not find anymore evidence of other quills. Now the bump is slowly going away. Overall he is a very healthy Brittany.
