Why Choose me?
The first thing Diamond did when I entered his kennel, was give me a gentle hug. He was glad to have a visitor. After I hugged him, he sat while I put the leash on him. I also had to leash his pen mate and little brother Rio. I quickly learned that Diamond knew all about leashes, but Rio did not–I ended up carrying him. I was so relieved that Diamond did not pull and actually walked pretty well on a leash. When we got to the interaction pen, Diamond continued to show me what a well behaved dog he was. He was never rough with Rio during play. I even saw him jump over his brother a few times when Rio ran in front of him. When I was giving them both treats, Diamond never tried to take Rio’s away and always waited his turn. Rio actually seemed to look up to his older brother and copied him. Diamond would always sit and stay for a treat. Rio would sit but found that when he would stay, like his brother, he’d get his treat sooner. I enjoyed playing with these boys and giving them attention. They’re both friendly and handsome dogs that responded to being petted and praised. I did notice that if I raised my hand too suddenly, Diamond would crouch down. I would hate to think that this sweet boy might be mistreated in any way. Come meet Diamond today and find out what a great dog he is!
