Meet Diamond! An adorable 83 lb pit mix who survived FOUR times on the euthanasia list at the NYC ACC! She would so love to be a lap doggie and could snuggle with you all day! Likely a previous family dog, Diamond is ready for her new adoptive home!
A shelter favorite- here is what one shelter volunteer had to say about her:
Diamond and I are inseparable…. There is no way I can take a picture of her whole body or even her face without having myself unfortunately in it…Diamond is a love bug, a velcro dog, a bit anxious and so needy of human presence. Looking at her, her rotund shape, her perfect coat, her great state of health , her dislike to return to her kennel, and her sociability, I know that she was a house dog, a family pooch, just yesterday… Maybe she was left behind when her people moved….Diamond is quiet in her den. I thought at first that she was not used to a leash, going here and there on our walk… Once it the park, she was a perfect walker, pulling just a little, not forgetting to do her business in one stop. A “break” under a tree and in the shade was most welcome, mostly after a drink of fresh water and a snack. Not that Diamond needs more food. A treadmill should be more like it on her wish list….Diamond really enjoyed the park, the smells , kids running around and of course, my lap… She is a real tank who does not know her weight and size. Diamond has so much love to give and such a need to belong. I really love this big gal who will be a wonderful friend and confidant to the new owner who will give her the chance to be adopted and offer her a caring home.
Diamond yearns to be be a family dog once again, she would love to snuggle up on your lap and be your best friend! Please consider this precious girl!
Diamond is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and is will be spayed prior to adoption.
