Diesel, Patterdale, DOB 2005 – Gatwick, West Sussex
Terrier owners will delight in this chap and lighten up his serious terrier nature with respect and tactics of managing him: Terrierrescue advocates a non-confrontation approach. Terrier people don't try to dominate their dogs; they out smart them! Enjoys a secure garden without fox holes! Diesel would prefer a 'one owner home’ as he first had. Not for live in children. He is a poppet.

Diesel grew up living above a pub as an only pet with no children. His owners have moved and couldn't take him with them. Diesel is neutered, chipped and vax'd. Diesel is in boarding kennels near Gatwick, West Sussex.
Diesel is well trained and knows his commands; sit, stay, lie down and paw. Diesel is quite a character and will grumble when he first wakes up. He messages his mood well i.e. his food can be precious on occasions 'what is lost is his' so owners should be tidy and avoid confrontation (we have not witnessed this in kennels). Diesel travels in the foot well of the car or on the passenger seat. He is managing well in kennels and experienced terrier owners should find him fun and with respect a true delight!
Diesel is a 9 year old tiny (13-14" to shoulder) smooth haired black Fell Terrier (Patterdale) with a life expectancy of 15 years due to his small size! A full history and detail of his care/needs is available. He can get protective so needs awareness e.g. if on the lap. This little man is off lead and mixes well with other dogs. Diesel needs a terrier family who delights in his character traits - a huge personality needing a terrier lovers sense of amusement.
Please note that this dog is currently in boarding kennels and is also available for foster until a 'forever' home is found.
