Diego's Story

Meet adorable Diego! Deep, soulful eyes and his adorable, shaggy coat, Diego is winning at doggy cuteness! This sweetheart came to PAWS from Chicago Animal Care and Control and is on the prowl for a loving forever home where he can enjoy adulthood to the fullest! Diego is a bit of a shy violet, but once he warms up, he is your friend for life!  He is a super good boy on his leash and loves being right by your side!  He trots happily along, but would prefer walking on quieter streets since he can get overwhelmed by loud and strange noises.  Not only does this sweet boy love going for walks, he enjoys receiving all kinds of affection from his humans too! He loves head scratches the most and will become your best friend for life if you spent some time giving him a good back rub! As he gets more comfortable with his surroundings and people, he is sure to blossom and give you all the affection his little heart holds!  He is a simple guy - some treats and a nice soft doggy bed to snooze in would be Diego’s dream come true! 

Diego has his paws crossed for a quiet home with an experienced owner and without young children.  He also isn’t a fan of cats, so a home without feline friends would suit him best.  He has done well with his other doggy roommates here at PAWS and he might enjoy a quiet, confident canine friend in his forever home! He would love to have a buddy to help teach him how amazing the world can be! Diego is such a handsome fellow and has a big heart that is full of tons of love to give to the right family! With time and patience, you will surely be rewarded with so much love and lots of wet kisses from this cutie!  Looking for a sweet and gentle, canine companion to share the simple things in life?  Diego might be just right for you!  Diego is currently enjoying time in a foster home, if you would like to meet him, email to find out how you can!
