This is Diamond, a small Am Staff with an amazing story. Diamond was brought in to one of area veterinarians having been burned by acid from her neck to her lower back. The owner who brought her in said he suspected some neighborhood kids did it to her while he was away at work. He left her for treatment and then sadly, never came back for her. One of foster homes met and fell in love with her sweet personality and decided to take her in. Diamond is a true testament to what animals can endure, survive, and then thrive. After months of medical treatment for her burns, Diamond is now healthy and looks and feels great-she only has a very small patch of hair missing on her hindquarters but even that is beginning to grow in-soon, no one will be able to tell that anything had ever happened to her.
Diamond herself is amazing-it is like what happened to her doesn't faze her in the least-she loves all people and is sweet and affectionate as she can be-she loves to give everyone she meets kisses and hugs. Diamond loves to go for long walks and play ball. She is good with other dogs and likes kids (untested with kitties).
She is spayed, current on shots, on heartworm prevention and housebroken/crate trained. Diamond really deserves a special home. If you think you can give that to her, you may submit an adoption application at our website at www.myhstc.org or email us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
