Meet Diamond Lil! We were asked by Companion Animal Welfare vets in Warwick RI, our wonderful partner vet, if we would take this dog if the owner surrendered her to them – she wanted to euthanize and they felt strongly this should not happen – so now she’s a Paws NE family member.
Diamond is 9 but don't tell her that! She's smart, happy, friendly and athletic. She loves to explore and is fascinated with every new dog and person she meets, greeting all with a smile. She's fostering with several other dogs of all ages and sizes and it's like she's known them forever. Diamond is completely housetrained and trusted throughout as she's not interested in chewing or destroying anything. She's very eager to please and just wants to be near her people.
Diamond has had some ongoing skin issues which we think is food related. She’s now on a healthy home-cooked diet w/no pizza or table scraps for this girl! Her skin looks amazing, her symptoms greatly reduced and with continued diligence we're hoping the allergies will be a thing of the past! Although not thrilled she didn’t protest at bath time, just stood there patiently while the organic potions worked their magic.
Diamond deserves a forever family that will give her the love and attention she craves; she has endless kisses and snuggles to go around.

Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - we do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue - we have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas) and New England. You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.
