Meet Diamond! Check me out, I'm PRECIOUS! Hey Everyone! My name is Diamond and let me tell you, my name suits me just fine! I'm about 6 years old and 50 or so pounds, at least that's what my driver's license says! When you look at me you probably see a dog that has had a 'ruff' life, and that's true. I came from a county in Tennessee where they have Breed Specific Legislation (BSL). What is that you ask? Well it means that they don't allow ANY 'bully' breeds in the county. No Pitbulls, no American Bulldogs, no Bull Terriers, and no ME! I had a slim chance to get out of there. I either had to be adopted by someone in another county, be selected by a rescue, or‰'Û|well let's not talk about that 'or'. I was very lucky to be in a shelter where they recognized what a wonderful dog I am. They kept me for OVER 700 DAYS waiting for rescue! Then one day I got the call‰'Û|I was going to Illinois! Now I am searching for just the right family to call my own. Let me tell you a little more about myself: Just like the gemstone, under my rough looking exterior is a polished, sparkling soul. I am housebroken and crate trained. Sometimes when I go in my crate, I let out a little 'chirp' just to let you know I would rather be with you, but other than that, I don't bark much at all. No need to call attention to this beauty! I love all humans! Adults, kids, men, women‰'Û|EVERYONE! Want to snuggle on the couch? I'm in! When it gets warmer, want to hang out in the sun? I'd love it! Need to get some exercise? Take me on a walk! I am just that precious! I have been living in a shelter or looking for a family for too long! Once I find the perfect people, I would prefer not to share them with another dog. I mean, I have been watching all the other dogs and puppies go off with their new families and for once, I would like to be the center of attention. If you are a wonderful, loving, family and think that you would like to give me the life I have always wished for, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for an application for Diamond. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family.
