Maryland SPCA’s Pets of the Week: Diesel and Mindy


DieselHello there I’m Diesel, a happy, playful and friendly hound looking for my forever home. If my personality doesn’t reel you in then just look at my face and my big floppy ears! They should get you hook, line and sinker. I enjoy long walks and running around so my ears flop along in the breeze. What I love even more is playing with big squeaky toys or stuffed animals — my favorite one here is a long red squeaky snake that I carry around in my mouth. If you are interested in adopting an adult dog who is still a puppy at heart then look no further because I’m the one for you! I may even howl for you when you come in to meet me.
