Hi there!! My name is Diamond. I am a happy go lucky, sweet great dane blend who was brought in as a stray to Animal Care Services in San Antonio. I was a little confused at first but excited too as there were so many other dogs there and I LOVE to play with other dogs. I heard them say I was up for adoption. How wonderful I thought, I am going to finally have a family. I waited for 3 days. People would come to see all of us dogs. I would be on my best behavior. Show my sit and my laydown. Show my 'happy to see you' dance and be a quiet girl as polite as can be, but no one took me home. On the 4th day a volunteer came to my kennel with a leash. I was so happy! Finally it was my turn! A family had picked ME! Would they have a big yard I could run and play in? Would there be another doggie friend I could wrestle with? Would there be a young boy or girl I could call my very own? Would I have a blanket and stuffed animals and a ball and bones? All my FAVORITE things? I was so eager I could not help but pull on the leash...but suddenly we were headed the wrong way, "this isn't the way to my new family" I thought. And instantly my heart filled with dread. I realized that they were taking me to the room where dogs went and never came back. "No no no!" I cried. "I am a good girl! Look at my sit! I'm so pretty Look at my perky ears that pop up when you talk to me and the way I turn my head as if I understand what your are saying. Look at my beautiful coat which has little brindle stripes poking thru my black and white and look at my cute speckles. Look how I can give kisses but only if you ask me to so I'm not rude. Look how I am the perfect size, just 50lbs. Look how fast I run but how good I cuddle! I can fetch your ball, I can sniff out your squirrels, I can lay quietly in my kennel and wait for you to come home from work!! I am a good girl. Please!" But it didn't matter. I was going to that room. And then by some miracle, we stopped, we turned around and later that night I left that place all together. I have been staying with different wonderful people called fosters. We run and play, and we snuggle and sleep!! We chew bones and fetch balls! It has been good but I still wait every single day for a family of my very own. I am a good girl!! If you have a fenced yard and other doggies, or kids (not toddlers because sometimes my play is a little too rambunctious for a toddler) or you'd like me to sniff out some squirrels for you, and you'd like to buy bones and toys and stuffed animals for me and you'd like to love me forever, maybe we can make each others' dream come true!
