Personality: Diggy Smalls is all about that party life! He loves to be the center of attention from both, humans and other dogs. Diggy enjoys lots of playtime with toys and running around with his canine friends. He is a high energy large boy with personality matching his size. Diggy does best with experienced handlers who know how to calm him and redirect him to polite behaviors. With his energy, Diggy Smalls would benefit from plenty of physical and mental exercise and a family who is comfortable managing a high energy, large dog. DIGGY SMALLS IS A STAFF AND VOLUNTEER FAVORITE! A training scholarship has been funded by The Pedigree Foundation.
History: Diggy Smalls came to us from another shelter.
Dog/Cat skills: Diggy Smalls is very playful and loves to run around with other high energy dogs. He can be more selective about male dogs but he loves all the ladies and will initiate play and chase with everyone he comes across.
We have no history on how Diggy is around cats.
Leash Skills: Diggy Smalls is a large and strong dog who will need to walk with appropriate equipment to control him. It also helps when he gets proper outlets for his energy.
Medical: This dog had a condition called "entropion" in both eyes, which means that his eyelid margins rolled inward, causing corneal irritation. The entropion has been surgically repaired in both eyes. He is due for a suture removal, under sedation, sometime around 2/21-2/23/20. If adopted prior to suture removal, this can be performed at HSSV as a scheduled sedation procedure (at no cost to the adopting family). After the sutures are removed, no further treatment for this condition is anticipated.
