SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The SylacaugaNews.com Pet of the Week is Diesel.

Diesel is four-years-old and a mix between a walker and lab. Diesel is a large dog but an absolute gentle giant. He is very laid back, walks well on a leash, and is great with other dogs.

Diesel, who has been at the shelter since March, has a special need. He tested heart worm positive, but do not let that discourage you from making him your own. If you are interested in his adoption, a volunteer has offered to pay for his treatment. Fostering Diesel while he undergoes heart worm treatment would be a tremendous help if adoption is not an option for you.

If you can adopt, his fee is $100 which includes his UTD shots and neutering.

For more information, call the Sylacauga Animal Shelter at (256) 401-2590 or visit the shelter at 41 Shelter Lane Sylacauga, AL 35151. You can also visit the shelter’s Facebook page.
