K9 Focus is appealing for a new home for sad but gorgeous German shepherd Diesel, who has been in kennels for half his life
Can you help the saddest dog in Devon find a home?
Diesel is a gorgeous long-coated German shepherd who was rescued from certain death by North Devon’s K9 Focus when he was just seven months old.
He had been at a local authority pound and was due to be put to sleep. He was terribly emaciated, his coat was completely matted and he was very frightened.
Now at 14 months old and thanks to the volunteers at K9 Focus he is a happy and handsome lad with a gorgeous coat.

He loves people and company; he is clever and willing to learn. His hobbies are toys, walks and paddling about in water
But sadly he is often overlooked and the K9 team are concerned that staying in kennels too long is not doing him any good.

K9 trustee and founder Lynne Hall said: “Diesel has been in kennels for over half of his life now we need to move this great dog into his own home where he can build on the skills we have taught him and he can start to settle after his traumatic start.
“He is starting to show signs of depression and withdrawal and I am fearful for his future if we don’t find his forever family soon.”
Diesel needs to go to a home where he is the only pet as he is still unsure around other dogs.
His family need to have time to put towards his ongoing training and development.
K9 Focus suggests a home with older children only, and experience of the breed would be an advantage but not necessary, we would like an experienced dog home however.
