Diamond is a friendly 5 year old American Bulldog mix. This poor girl was tied to a fence and abandoned when her owners moved and neighbor took her in. They kept her and worked with her but their living situation changed and they had to surrender her to Friendship. Diamond had some obedience training when she was young but may need some refreshing. Diamond knows basic commands and will obey them if you can keep her focused. She is strong and fast. Diamond does best on a GRAIN FREE diet. She loves to run and her favorite game is tug o war. This cuddle bug likes to snuggle on the couch during TV time. She would do best with some additional training and a fenced yard. An active family would be great for her energy level. Diamond was recently adopted and returned. She was returned due to owner losing home. Her owner said Diamond is house trained and doesn't chew on anything in the home. Diamond is a great co-pilot in the car too. She was very sweet in the home. She's a gem! ***Diamond is currently in a foster home getting a little break from shelter life. If you would like to meet her, please call the shelter at 440-322-4321 to schedule an appointment. Or contact her foster mom Pam at ***
