About Me

If you like the “tall, dark, and handsome” type, we may just have the perfect guy for you! Meet Diego – he's 100lbs of love, cuddles, and of course energy! He's two years old, but that's basically still a puppy, and so he still has a lot of puppy energy and manners. Our Behavior Associate, Samantha, has a special bond with Diego (as you can see!) and told us that he's “the cutest bull-in-a-china-shop you've ever met! He's just a big goober of a dog, loves his people and his toys, walks nicely on a leash and takes treats gently.”

Diego is an absolute sweetheart, but he's working on himself to be an even better BFF in his new home. Since his arrival at AWLA, Diego has experienced a lot of anxiety. This is something we have been working on with him, and he is doing so well, but he'll still need lots of patience and training in his new home. Because of this, we are looking for an adult/teenage only home, where Diego can be the only dog and get all the attention he needs to be the best he can be! We will also find his new family through a “best fit” process, to make sure that we find the best home that can for him.

If you are interested in adopting Diego, please schedule an appointment for a virtual meet and greet.
