Diamond is a 3 year-old pit bull mix. She’s an absolute sweetheart and enjoys being close to her humans. When we first rescued her, she was very thin with some scars that told us she had a rough start in life. Diamond now weighs in at a very healthy 71.5 lbs (up from 58) and looks so great! Most importantly, Diamond is a happy, nice girl.
With the love and care of her wonderful fosters, Diamond has healed and taken full advantage of this opportunity to seriously chillax! She’s mostly very mellow and enjoys sunbathing by the window or taking naps. However, she definitely enjoys playing with her toys and her occasional zoomies are adorable!
Because she has a lower energy level, we feel she could do fine in a home with children. However, children and dogs should always be supervised in any situation!
When asked, the fosters say her biggest area for improvement is with leash training. She is reactive to other dogs on her walks but is doing well taking direction from her fosters. Diamond most likely hasn’t been well socialized with other dogs and we haven’t had much opportunity to work on this due to the pandemic. Therefore, she might need to be the only dog in the home.
We have also been working on resolving some skin issues and identifying a slight favor to her back right leg. This girl was definitely neglected so it’s just a process to get her to 100% and she makes progress every day!
Diamond is the typical pit bull: very loving, smart and loyal. She is house and crate trained. She enjoys her walks, but tires easily and may need help building up her strength – so not a good hiking partner (at least for now). She can be a little sensitive to certain sounds she’s unsure of, but is definitely working on building her confidence.
Diamond would be perfect for a family who can provide a home that allows her to just chill and be nosey. Most importantly, she continues to show progress in her training and will need a person with the time and patience to keep working on it.
