Acquired: Breeder (hobby breeder)
Posted November 5, 2014
Diesel is a great dog for a Pitbull/Boxer mix. He was chosen from a litter from a breeder friend of mine. He's a great guard dog and he reads people very well. He can be a bit stubborn and the breed mix definitely needs training. Though very, very low maintenance the dog can be a but troublesome when left alone. He has eaten through several pairs of sandals and even bit a hole in our carpet.
However, this could all be attributed to his age as he is still a puppy.
He is great with our cats and small children. I would even say patient to a fault at times. The only time I have seen him get his "hackles up" is when there are people suddenly in his space that he does not know, and then it is a simple matter of hand sniffing and verbal reinforcement.
He does have some sensitive skin issues which are a bit expensive. Other than that he is in perfect health and has been problem and worry free.
