Foster Feedback


This guy is starting to show some life. He woke up and ran to the door so fast the other morning, I was surprised! His treatment continues at Casselton Vet for the chiropractic adjustment and his laser and acupuncture. These are about every 4-6 weeks for less pain. He takes 1/2 a pill daily and is very smart in getting the pill out of the treat or pocket. He does not play much with other dogs, He's more happy laying on the outskirts of the yard or living room just relaxing. He continues to be at my feet or right next to me in the chair or bed. He still does not like to be kenneled, It's amazing how well he can climb up on the couch or chair when he hears me say "Kennel up!". He loves his treats and will go in his kennel when brought there. He has since found his voice now that we have a third dog in our house. He is learning not to bark at people outside the house and is a little timid of strange men. He is such a loving dog, he would benefit more being in a forever home where he can be the only dog or with laid back quiet dogs like him. He's a bit of a jealous boy when it comes to who gets the love, but isn't mean. 


Tama loves his favorite spot as close to my side as possible in my chair, or as he sleeps next to me on bed. He still likes being treated more like a human rather than a dog.
He continues to have an occasional accident but for most part he goes outside. He still prefers a chair or bed over his kennel, but does ok with being carried to kennel and given treats, he appears quiet .  When I return, Tama is ready to be held and given loving touch.
He has his morning pills, a pain med and a fish oil to take, does this best with a small piece of cheese. He walks much better on leash than at first. He enjoys the walk as long as not too long.

Tama, is very passive  He loves to sit on your lap or close  to you. He is very fragile and anxious with kids. He does enjoy being with his foster sister. He loves chew toys ,stuffed toys. He is good at going outside for potty but does not go far and does not like the cold. He is very close to the ground so he gets cold quickly. He rarely barks but whines to get his needs met if he needs help in chair or up to you. He does appear to have pain when reached for or lifted up but when laying still none noted. He is friendly with adults and not as anxious as with children who want to hold or pet.

Our Adoption Process...

What is the process for adopting an animal?

Before potential adopters can physically meet a foster animal outside of our open adoption events, we require them to register on our site and submit an adoption application. Check out our scheduled adoption events.

After applications are reviewed, suitable applicants are contacted to set up a Pre-Adoption Meeting with our volunteers. This meeting is designed to answer any questions adopters may have about a particular animal or our adoption process. These meetings are dependent on the availability of approved volunteers in your area.

Once the application and Pre-Adoption Meeting are complete, meet and greets with the foster animal can be scheduled with qualified applicants if this has not already occurred.

After the meet and greet (and if the applicant is still interested in the animal), foster parents will make a recommendation to the Adoption Committee regarding the adoption. The foster animal stays with the foster family until they hear from the Diamond In The Ruff adoption committee.

Adoption is approved or rejected by the Diamond In The Ruff Adoption Committee. Final approval of all adoptions is at the sole discretion of Diamond in the Ruff.

Once approved, another meeting will be arranged between the foster parent and adopter wherein the adoption fee is collected and contracts are signed. The foster animal then goes to its new forever home and, after the adopters are given a week-long trial period, the adoption is finalized. Check out some of our amazing success stories!

A Diamond in the Ruff volunteer will contact the adoptive family after 72 hours to see how everyone is settling in as well as answer any questions.

After the week trial period is up, we will deposit the adoption fee and distribute the animals vet records and microchip information in a timely fashion.

Please keep in mind, Diamond In The Ruff is a 100% volunteer run organization and we will process your applications as fast as possible. If you have any questions about your application, contact our Application Coordinator at

If you have questions about an animal’s vet records, please contact our Healthcare Coordinator at
