Foster Feedback:


Rita still enjoys going on walks and being outside, but is also content with just hanging out. She continues to be obsessed with water and no one is really sure what that is. I tried taking her to the dog park, but she didn’t roam very far, it was like she didn’t know what to do. She is very mild-mannered and not aggressive.  She would do great with an older person who has a lot of time to take her outside for potty and for walks.


Rita enjoys going for walks and also likes to cuddle. She prefers a quiet environment and will bark if things get loud and/or chaotic. Her previous owners trained her to sit, lay, get in your bed, get in your kennel and turn around. She has an obsession with water and the vet has checked her for multiple diseases and she's perfectly healthy. She needs to be on water restriction unless you're able to take her outside everyone hour or two. She gets along well with other dogs unless they're being too loud or wild while playing, then she feels the need to go over and break it up. smile emoticon Even though she's a senior, she's still very active on walks, but doesn't really play much with toys.


Rita is believed to be between 11-13 years old, but still enjoys going on walks and will even run for awhile, so age isn’t slowing her down. She’s potty trained, but needs to be taken out every couple of hours, unless she’s in a kennel, then she can go over night. She’s been tested for diabetes and other ailments because she can’t seem to get enough water. She’s currently on water restriction, in order to help with the potty training. She’s mild mannered, but doesn’t like a lot of noise or any aggressive play going on around her. She knows some commands, so someone spent time training her. She knows; sit, lay down, spin, get in your kennel, etc.

Our Adoption Process...

What is the process for adopting an animal?

Before potential adopters can physically meet a foster animal outside of our open adoption events, we require them to register on our site and submit an adoption application. Check out our scheduled adoption events.

After applications are reviewed, suitable applicants are contacted to set up a Pre-Adoption Meeting with our volunteers. This meeting is designed to answer any questions adopters may have about a particular animal or our adoption process. These meetings are dependent on the availability of approved volunteers in your area.

Once the application and Pre-Adoption Meeting are complete, meet and greets with the foster animal can be scheduled with qualified applicants if this has not already occurred.

After the meet and greet (and if the applicant is still interested in the animal), foster parents will make a recommendation to the Adoption Committee regarding the adoption. The foster animal stays with the foster family until they hear from the Diamond In The Ruff adoption committee.

Adoption is approved or rejected by the Diamond In The Ruff Adoption Committee. Final approval of all adoptions is at the sole discretion of Diamond in the Ruff.

Once approved, another meeting will be arranged between the foster parent and adopter wherein the adoption fee is collected and contracts are signed. The foster animal then goes to its new forever home and, after the adopters are given a week-long trial period, the adoption is finalized. Check out some of our amazing success stories!

A Diamond in the Ruff volunteer will contact the adoptive family after 72 hours to see how everyone is settling in as well as answer any questions.

After the week trial period is up, we will deposit the adoption fee and distribute the animals vet records and microchip information in a timely fashion.

Please keep in mind, Diamond In The Ruff is a 100% volunteer run organization and we will process your applications as fast as possible. If you have any questions about your application, contact our Application Coordinator at

If you have questions about an animal’s vet records, please contact our Healthcare Coordinator at
