Diamond is a 7 year old shih tzu yorkie female spayed dog who is being surrendered because the owner can no longer take care of her. Diamond has been with the family for 6 years.
Diamond lived with 1 adult and 1 cat. Diamond was receptive to the cat but the cat was very defensive to her so they did not interact. Diamond has been exposed to chidlren and is very tolerant, if she is overwhelmed she will go to her dog bed. Diamond eliminates both indoors on a wee wee pad and out of doors. When on leash walks if she encounters other dogs she is playful and receptive. When visitors come to the home she is receptive and will greet them.
Diamond enjoys a bath and is tolerant of a nail trim. She also enjoys being brushed. Diamond does not guard her food toys or treats and if you take her food while she is eating she will walk away. Diamond is not startled when awoken.
Diamond does not have toys but enjoys running games and petting. She does not know any commands. When the family is home she likes to relax and be in her dog bed. When home alone she is well behaved. Diamond eats both wet and dry food.
Upon intake Diamond was energetic and receptive to introduction. Diamond was loose for all handling and counselor was able to scan for microchip (negative) collar and photograph. Diamond was easily picked up and also walked well on leash but appears to be blind so needs some guidance on leash.
Diamond is an owner surrender. Upon intake Diamond had cloudy eyes and was softly bumping into walls so is possibly partially or completely blind. Counselor also noted and growth or mass on the lower mammary chain that was rough and dry with poss necrotic tissue. Owner did not mention this on surrender. Diamond was BAR and easily handled.
