I rescued Diesel over 5 years ago but he rescues me every day from various ailments. Diesel is extremely empathetic. If I’m struggling, especially with depression or fibromyalgia, he is not only by my side but puts his paws on me. Sometimes even around my neck and gives me proper cuddles. If my back and hips are really painful he lays behind me to ensure he keeps the painful parts warm. If I’m tearful he comes and rests his head on my head or shoulder.
