This is my rescue baby Diesel. He is a 2 year old Doberman/Pit bull mix and I ended up saving him from horrible conditions. He was beaten, starved, left out on a choker chain in all weather conditions, the only water he got was when it rained, and he was put in a shock collar because he is a bit vocal. It took three baths just to get the dirt out of his fur and then we realized he was blind. It also took a month before I could even get him to untuck his tail he was so afraid of being beaten again. One would think that after a lifetime of abuse, especially since he is of two "aggressive" breeds, or so people like to say, that he would have turned out to be vicious and mean. Instead with a little love and patience he has turned out to be the most loveable, goofy, and faithful companion I could ever ask for. And although he is blind and came from the situation he did, I am truly blessed to have been able to save him. Diesel is worth his weight in gold not only to me but to those who have met him.
