A volunteer writes: Diamond may not be the type of dog that gets your attention right away, but she should. Diamond was surrendered to us with her housemate, Princess, because her owner was moving somewhere she could not bring her. She reportedly was playful and affectionate toward Princess, and Diamond previously lived harmoniously with a cat as well! Though she was kept mostly outside, she is very housetrained and rarely has accidents, can be trusted to be left home alone without issue, loves stuffed toys and balls and is affectionate towards children, ages infant and up. And while Diamond certainly looks great on paper, you have to meet her to see what a truly soft and gentle soul she has. In the yard, she will sit at my feet for as long as I allow her, lightly resting her head on my knees, letting me caress her face and ears. When I stop, she props her paws into my lap, nuzzling her head into my stomach, begging for more petting, softly wagging her tail. The feeling of love is mutual. I enjoy petting her silky brindle fur as much as she likes me doing it. At 7, Diamond has the ideal energy level, is already trained, and yet still has many amazing years ahead of her. The only thing she''s lacking is a family to share them with. Ask to meet her today.
