Diesel Cane Corso
Diesel Cane Corso Diesel Cane Corso

Diesel’s main position in the offices is to provide a happy distraction from the daily routine. His upbeat attitude, constant search for anything edible and continual out-gassing, keeps things lively in the office. He has become the official face of the company and will be the first to greet you at the door. Look for him walking in downtown Asheville and come say hello.

If you do not see him on site he is probably sleeping in the truck.
