Meet the amazing Diamond! This three year old 75 pound Pittie Mix is looking for her forever snuggle buddy, could it be you?
Diamond came to us a few months ago from Oakland Animal Shelter where she was turned in as a stray. This sweet girl had clearly been abused and neglected for most of her life and was very underweight and injured. Through the kindness of her previous foster family she is healed up, at a healthy weight, and ready to find her home! She has learned to love people and has become an adorable snuggle monster!
Diamond loves car rides and going for quiet adventures. She has fantastic leash manners. She will contentedly trot along beside you checking in often for pets and treats! Those beautiful brown eyes are enough to make anyone melt. Diamond likes taking in all the smells the world has to offer! She does the cutest little hops and skips when she’s really enjoying herself! She’s a very treat motivated lady and will happily show you how good she is at sitting and laying down in exchange for a cookie.
Due to her past neglect, Diamond was never properly socialized with other dogs. She is leash reactive and will bark and lunge when she sees another pup. Because of this Diamond will need to be the only pet in the home and walked in quieter areas. We think she has great potential though! With time, patience, love, and professional positive reinforcement training Diamond could possibly learn to tolerate other dogs at some point. It’ll take a home willing to go slow and give her the love she needs to gain confidence!
Think this gem of a girl could be the forever furry friend you’ve been looking for? Fill out an application below and give adorable Diamond the loving home she’s been waiting for for so long! (CA)
