Bonjour! Je m'appelle Deigo. I have just recently arrived from St. Pierre and have to say that I love it here. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am 3 ½ and arrived at the shelter in St. Pierre just about a year ago. My owner did not have the time needed to care for me as a young dog and I didn't learn how to socialize well, I just wanted attention.
The great folks in St. Pierre have spent a lot of time training me and I am so thankful that they did. I am clicker trained and I respond to commands best in French (you will learn them quickly too). I do walk well on a leash and love to be around people. I get along great with other dogs and understand that cats need their space, so I know that I could live with them with out any problems.
I also would do well in a family with children who are familiar with dogs. I stayed overnight after getting picked up at the airport with the sweetest family and I made fast friends with their young children. It was great really because they had other dogs there for me to hang out with it. I like company and would like it best if I had someone that was home with me for most of the day. Being in a kennel reminds me of the shelter and plus I am a big boy, have you ever tried to turn around in one of those things
I am neutered, up to date with my vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and have had my flea treatment. The kind staff at the SPCA have my papers and honestly I feel a little bit like a celebrity having a passport and all.
I would do best in a home where my owner could be home with me often or even check in on their lunch break. If you know that you have the time to spend with me and think I would be a good fit with your family, please click on the “ADOPT” button below to fill out an adoption application.
Don't be shy to call the shelter to ask about our foster program as well. It allows both of us the time needed to adjust.
