Duchess's Story...
We wonder what happened that caused this girl to show up out of nowhere. It was apparent that she'd not been very well cared for. She was skinny and scaly. She was hungry and hesitant. She was starving for attention and begged to be let in. And so this girl was rescued from the streets by strangers and taken to the local shelter. Unfortunately this shelter has a reputation for offering little chance of being adopted to dogs that end up there....and, so, a Village stepped up to network her before her time was up. She was just a puppy and there were only 48 hours left to save her life!

After many many posts and shares and effort, it seemed hopeless for Duchess until they reached us at Diamond Dogs Rescue director, Karen Valente. One look at her scared face in the shelter and knowing she was just a youngster Karen said we're taking her!

Duchess was taken to the local vet and fully examined, given all vaccines, spayed and micro chipped. She's now in foster care as we wait for her quarantine time to be completed in order to transport her to a foster family. The foster mom, Lynda told us that she's an active little girl with the expected energy level of a dog her age. But, when she's ready to relax she prefers someones lap. She's very social and playful with other dogs and loves to run run run. She's very smart, excellent in the crate and understands correction.

Duchess is a shepherd mix that's around 7-8 months old and will make someone a great family pet. Please follow her story as it unfolds and we learn more and more about her. Her facebook page is

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duchess, a Mount Holly Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Mount Holly, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Mount Holly.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mount Holly already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Mount Holly breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mount Holly paves the way for another one to be saved.
