Whoever said that “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” had to have been talking about this jewel here!! Diamond is literally the perfect little girl. Upon arriving to her foster home, she immediately made herself at home. She was so grateful to be off of her chain and in a comfortable home and immediately loved everyone.
Diamond and her 4 puppies were living in a rural Mississippi town on a chain with no shelter, and very little food and water. A kind neighbor contacted animal control, and after a home visit from law enforcement and the AC officer, the owner agreed to surrender her and the puppies into foster care.
Diamond does great in a family environment. She is currently being fostered with several other adult dogs and puppies, and 3 small children. She loves everyone, and gets along perfectly with every other dog. She prefers to be inside, but will go out to play several times a day.
This girl meshes with the other dogs in her foster home, and shares joyfully. She meets strangers with a wagging tail and a smiling face. She lays down with small children and snuggles them.
Diamond loves playing with other dogs. She had never shown any ill behavior during playtime at all. She runs and plays with the bigger dogs, and is very gentle with puppies and smaller dogs. She loves dog toys, to play tug of war with her human and canine fosters.
And she is even good with cats. She will sniff them and wag her tail. That’s the only reaction that she has shown.
Diamond is wonderful with kids!! She is gentle, relaxed, and perfectly behaved. She loves lying on the couch with small children and napping.
Diamond stayed in a crate for the first week after coming into her foster home, and did very good. She was calm and relaxed. She went in willingly when it was being used would nap in it during the day.
At this time, there is little need to keep her crated. She behaves very well outside of the crate. One exception, the garbage bin..keep that well hidden!
This girl is completely house trained. Diamond goes to the door and scratches at it when she needs to go out. If she does have to go potty when her family is at work, she uses the puppy pads.
Diamond loves her neighborhood walks and reacts to other dogs the same as she does when off of a leash; with kindness and eagerness, never aggressive or confrontational.
This beauty has never met a stranger or shied away from any situation. She is perfectly comfortable with each new experience.
She is also very treat motivated (GREAT for training), and loves to help her mom cook, in hopes of her mom sneaking her a bite.
Diamond does perfect on car rides and is always eager for a road trip.
And talk about a love-bug!!! This beauty is very affectionate. She loves to lay on the couch or in the bed with her mom, or just sit close enough to her to lean into her. She has the sweetest disposition, and is just so gentle and loving to everyone that she meets.
Miss Diamond is patiently awaiting her forever family, and will make someone a lifetime best friend!! Don’t pass up on this amazing girl.
