found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Diamond is approx 4 months old and about 7 lbs. We don't know what her breed is, but we don't think she will get to be very big. Probably under 30 lbs (our best guess). Diamond is spayed, microchipped, and current on shots.
Diamond is playful but not hyper. She's quick to bond and loves to cuddle. Good with people and other dogs. However, because of her small size right now, she should not go to a home with small children who might handle her too roughly.
Diamond would thrive most with a family who will socialize her to as many people, animals, and environments as possible. A little on the timid side when placed in new surroundings, it's very important that she be exposed to different places and people so that she gains the confidence to take change in stride.
If you are interested in adopting Diamond, please give serious thought about whether you can commit to the extra time and care a young puppy requires. Please consider the following:
- Housetraining. Your puppy will need to be housetrained and may have several accidents in the meantime. She may also need to be taken out in the middle of the night and throughout your work day to relieve himself since puppies have smaller bladders.
- Socialization. Your puppy will need to be socialized to as many different people, environments, sounds, sights, smells, animals, etc as possible. Do you have the time and energy to expose her to as much of the world so that she becomes accustomed to different things?
- Mouthing. Keep in mind that your puppy is still teething and may want to put her mouth, including her sharp little puppy teeth, around everything. Yes, that may mean your hands, arms, legs, furniture, shoes, clothing, wires, plugs, books. If you have other pets or children, them too.
- Training. You will need to start at square one for training. Your puppy may not even know how to react when attached to a leash.
Of course, it is a lot of work. But it is even more rewarding if you put the time and effort into the process. Diamond, like any other dog, will brighten every single day. Give her what she needs and craves (discipline, exercise, and affection), and you will be rewarded with infinite love and laughter.
If you are interested in fostering or adopting Diamond, please submit a completed application. There is a $275 tax-deductible adoption fee, which helps to offset the numerous medical expenses the rescue incurs. Diamond is currently being fostered in Petaluma. A homecheck will be required to ensure each dog goes to a suitable environment.
