Say Hello to Dijon!
Before coming to the Sioux Empire Dijon was rescued from life on the end of a chain down in Georgia. Dijon has filled out nicely but when he was rescued he resembled a skeleton with fur rather than the dog he is today. He's still a tiny bit on the skinny side but his foster mom is working on getting him to a healthy weight.
Despite his earlier life experience Dijon holds no grudges against the human race, in fact he LOVES people and snuggling them and giving love and kisses!
Dijon's foster mom says he is one smart cookie when it comes to learning the house rules and basic commands! He came knowing sit and shake and has since learned " sit and wait" ( for food and at the door), " down" and " look".
Dijon caught on to the concept of housebreaking quickly, other than one accident early on he has been 100% accident free!
Dijon enters his kennel easily most days .. on occasion he runs and hides under the kitchen table... he doesn't fuss once kenneled either.
Dijon lives with one canine foster sister and they have become fast bff's! They enjoy being together and a little rough housing ( foster mom hasn't allowed it to get rowdy) followed by a nice nap together. Upon arrival Dijon showed very little interest in playing with toys but with his foster sisters encouragement and tutelage he decided to give toys a try and has learned they can be fun. He's still not toy crazy but he enjoys chasing a ball and chewing on rope toys.
Dijon loves snuggling . Give him a couch or bed full of blankets and pillows and he gets all goofy rolling in them with joy! There was even a time when he pushed all the couch pillows onto the floor and made himself quite the little pillow fort!
For a young guy Dijon is definitely on the mellow side . He loves going for a walk and is a pleasure on the leash. He enjoys riding in the car and just chilling on the couch or on a big cushion on the patio.
Mostly Dijon just wants to be with his person/people and enjoy life.... Could you be his forever person??
