ADOPTED!! Delightful Diesel – Sweet Senior Yorkshire Terrier – New Orleans, Louisiana


Hi, My name is Diesel!


I am a Tan and Silver Male Yorkie Dog. I am 13 – 14 years old and weigh  7 – 8 lbs. I live in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I am such a sweet little guy. I may be a little long in the whiskers, but I make up for it in love. I am very healthy and have been neutered, fully vaccinated and micro-chipped. I am house broken and very well behaved. I am pretty low-maintenance, really. Just let me snuggle up on your lap, and I am content to stay there forever.

I had to have most of my teeth removed, but that just adds to my charm. My owner affectionately refers to me as “Gumby” and I am on a soft-food diet.

My owner loves me so very much. He adopted me three years ago from my previous owner, who had Alzeheimer’s disease, and could no longer take care of me. He has given me a wonderful home and lots of love. As much as he loves me, he is dearly hoping to find another die hard dog lover to take over my care. He has been offered a wonderful teaching position overseas, and simply cannot take me with him.

Please offer me the loving home I need and deserve today. Whether you adopt me on my own, or consider also adopting my Labrador Retriever friend, Milo, as well, we would be so grateful. I can’t wait to snuggle my way into your heart and home.

Love and licks,

Diesel’s Personality

He’s pretty quiet and spend a lot of time in his bed unless he’s being held on your lap. He LOVES to be held or sit next to you on the sofa. I’m sure that he’s love to sleep in the bed but I draw the line.

Two adults, myself and fiance’. I have two kids who only see and interact with Diesel during visits.

Diesel doesn’t play with toys. You are his toy/companion. He’s a lovable old guy
He who loves being held and stroked. And my goodness he loves to lick your hand.

Cute Diesel Story:

I adopted him from a family member approximately 3 and a half years ago due to Alzheimer disease. He had dental caries and had to have most of his teeth removed, so he’s “Gumby”.

Why is Diesel Being Rehomed?

I am relocating outside of the country to take a teaching position.

Diesel’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:

A loving caring environment with someone looking for a buddy who wants lots of lap time. I don;t think that he will do well wiht kids due to his advanced age.
