RepostBy @xmen77leftfield: "Diamond was living her life, her elderly Mom got sick, she couldn’t care for her any more. The family didn’t want her. She was surrendered two years ago. She will soon be 10 years old. She was adopted once, but returned. She is strong, and doesn’t like other dogs while out for walks (she’s actually very interested when looking through the kennel cages). So the odds are stacked against her. My fellow volunteers and I try to give her a break from being in her cage every day. When we get her on the trail, and it’s quiet, she walks beautifully. When we get her in a quiet room with a blanket, she just wants to cuddle. Her shelter life is hard. But we will watch over her until her miracle comes. Shine bright, Diamond.
Update ⚠️ A very generous supporter has has offered to sponsor Diamond - covering costs for one year of standard vetting (paid to the vet) and two years of food (auto shipped), plus her adoption fee. Another generous sponsor has offered training to help Diamond transition into her new home. Please message @homewarddogs if you have a serious adoption inquiry and have read her info below.

▫️ She is dog reactive and needs to be an only pet
▫️ Diamond is a strong girl who needs space from other dogs and a savvy handler

▫️ A meet and greet REQUIRED at the shelter
Floppy-eared Diamond is a fun and loving pup, - a fenced yard would be ideal. At almost 10 years old, Diamond has spent the past 2 years in a shelter. She needs an adopter who is committed to giving her the structure, time and patience needed to adjust in a new home.
Serious inquiries only, please message @homewarddogs
