2/09/19 – Forever Foster
In October, Diesel developed a high fever and was taken to our vet for further testing. They found a 2 inch mass, which was diagnosed as a bladder tumor. He sadly tested positive for transitional cell carcinoma, the most common type of bladder cancer. Diesel was placed on antibiotics and will be closely monitored. We hope Diesel has many more good days, but he will be remaining with his foster home and cared for by AABR. He is doing well at this time and is very loved by his foster mom. Please consider donating towards his needs.

Diesel is a sweet, gentle boy who is still looking for his forever home. He gets along well with other dogs and children of all ages. He would do best in a home where somebody is there to let him out or a dog walker can provide a mid-day break.  Apply today to be Diesel’s hero.

Diesel continues to do well at his foster home. His foster mom indicates that Diesel has been able to transition to free run of the house when left alone. He no longer needs the steel crate. Because of frequent urinary tract infections, Diesel would do best in a home that can at least give him a mid day break. He just started a new herb to help with his urinary leaking. Diesel is an easygoing boy who would love to find a forever home.  He walks well on leash and gets along great with other dogs, large and small.  Diesel will be a wonderful addition to a lucky family.

Diesel is a very laid back boy who loves to relax in his foster home. He is a happy guy who enjoys playing with toys. Diesel is very dog friendly and does well with his foster brother, a male boxer. He is great with both children and adults. Diesel does still need to be crated when left alone. He does best in a steel crate that he is unable to break out of. When his foster mom is home, Diesel always wants to be where he can see her. Diesel needs a home that is there often and willing to continue to work with his separation anxiety. He also would do best in a home with a fenced yard.  This boy has a wonderful disposition and is hoping there will be a family soon who can meet his needs.  If you can provide an appropriate home for Diesel, apply today.

Diesel is looking for a new foster or a forever home. His ideal situation would be with somebody that is home during the day, which would limit the amount of time he has to spend in the crate. Diesel is anxious when left alone and he would do best in a home with another dog. Diesel is good with children.  He would prefer a home without cats. Diesel is very gentle and responds well to verbal commands. When you are home with Diesel, he is housebroken and will go to the door or whine when he needs to go out. Diesel has been neutered and brought up to date on all vet care. If you can provide the right environment for Diesel, apply today.

AABR was contacted about three boxers in southern Virginia who were in urgent need of rescue. The original owner was not able to care for them. They were not being fed and were running loose at neighboring farms. The owner asked a family member to take them in or he indicated he would shoot them. Diesel, Duke, and Daisy were very lucky that the family member did take them in.  She then reached out to rescue for help in finding wonderful homes and changing their lives. While AABR arranged transport, they were provided shelter and food. They were all dewormed and given vaccines. The rest of their vetting will be completed once they get settled in at their foster homes.

Diesel is estimated to be around 6-7 yrs old. He would do best in a home with another dog and without cats. Diesel has arrived at his new foster home and is getting settled in. He is in foster with another male boxer. Once Diesel gains some weight, he will be neutered and brought up to date on the rest of his vet care.  Diesel will then be ready to find a forever home where he will never have to worry about fending for himself outside again.
