**** TO BE KILLED - 3/21/2019 ****
Who is the girl with the beautiful face, doe eyes, butterfly ears, & sideways heart marking above her right eye? Diamond is delightful to look at, though these days her big brown eyes are filled with sadness & loneliness. Just over a year old, she belonged to a home with a five year old child which she cherished. Super smart, adept in several commands, crate trained and described by her prior home as friendly & independent. Though she was not introduced to dogs until arriving at the ACC, she was tolerant to both #dogs . Losing her home wasn't hard enough, now the shelter is faulting her for being frightened. She crouches, her eyes are either forlorn or wide eyed with fear. She is voiceless and at the mercy of a
#doglover who can offer her a chance. Clearly her prior home didn't believe in the promise of forever together, or whether she lives or dies. #Diamond is a gem, perfectly healthy, very young, & very smart. She needs one chance, & she needs it now #foster or #adopt her.
I am a female gray dog
The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 6 months old, 47 lbs
Came into shelter as owner surrender Mar. 17, 2019
Reason Stated: NO TIME for animal
Diamond is rescue only
AT RISK due to behavioral concerns observed both at her previous home & in shelter. Diamond's previous owner reports fearful behavior in line with what has been observed @ ACC. Diamond has escalated to growling at handlers upon approach as well lip raising; because she has tolerated only minimal handling at this time, we feel Diamond best set up to succeed with an experienced rescue partner. Force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing or exposing Diamond to new and unfamiliar situations. Diamond is otherwise healthy.
My medical notes are...
Weight: 47.6 lbs
Estimated age: 1 year
Microchip noted on Intake? No
