A volunteer writes: Something fun about Diamond; she likes to take showers with her owner!! How cute is that! It’s simply impossible to walk down the street with Diamond without a chorus of ‘awwwwww’s’ and comments such as: ‘she’s a happy girl’, ‘wow she’s gorgeous’, ‘look at that smile’ and more. Indeed she’s a happy bouncy puppy wagging her tail dancing down the street. In fact her former owners said one of their favorite things about her is how happy she is all the time and that she loves everyone. I agree. There wasn’t a person or dog Diamond didn’t want to make friends with. Meeting both a Mastiff and a Toy Poodle in the park, Diamond wagged her tail appropriately and with invitation to both. We’re also told that she knows, ‘sit’, ‘down’ and ‘stay’, and is trained to go potty on wee wee pads. She’s a smart girl who loves treats so can learn to go potty outside with proper positive reinforcement training. She showed me her ‘sit’ when I asked her to, and sitting without being asked when she saw my hand go into my treat bag. Off leash in the backyard she loved a good game of fetch and letting me take the ball out of her mouth for another throw. Wiggly and happily affectionate, Diamond gives enthusiastic puppy kisses, so happy to be able to call me a friend. Fun, funny, engaging and gorgeous, Diamond is guaranteed to brighten your day, your week, your year, your life……She’s looking for an active family where lots of play time, lots of exercise and mental stimulation is available and of course lots of love! Throw in a shower and she’ll know she’s home!
