found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Fortunately, we have a foster Mom who has a special place in her heart for the older dogs, and she had room in her home for Diamond. She also has a senior male GSD and a dog-savvy cat; Diamond was happy to meet the male GSD but was not too sure about the cat. With close supervision and some lessons in cat manners (administered by the cat), Diamond was doing very well at the end of the first week; so that hurdle was cleared.
She didn’t eat much during that first week and was not tempted by treats or toys; actually, she didn’t seem to know what to do with a toy. Something was bothering her, in addition to missing her pack mates, her owner and her familiar surroundings. She was having “accidents” in the house, so we asked her foster Mom to take her to the vet to be checked for a Urinary Tract Infection. Sure enough, that’s what was making her feel “off” and causing the accidents. Once the medication got that cleared up, Diamond became more active and started eating normally.
She’s a friendly girl, but she’ll bark when someone knocks on the door; she follows the lead of her present pack member, Murray, and greets visitors nicely. She didn’t know how to walk on leash but has learned not to pull and enjoys her walks now. We do think she’ll be happiest living with another dog in the family, and having a cat buddy would be a bonus.
