Pet Spotlight: A Diamond in the Ruff

By David Pope

It is said that every dog has their day—but sometimes they need a little help to get there. Our eternal friends-in-fur over at Barks of Love do a lot of great work with their shelter for underprivileged pups and disadvantaged dogs, and run a successful foster program. We'd like to take the opportunity to help them out a bit with this terrier-ific cause with a spotlight on one of their longer-term residents in search of a forever home.

Meet Diamond, a loveable pit bull mix taken in by Barks of Love in October 2015, at the age of one. She was found roaming the streets of Orange Country, before being taken into her temporary foster family home.

What her foster parents didn't know, however, was that Diamond was pregnant at the time she was rescued. Her nine puppies were all successfully delivered, and subsequently adopted out to their forever families. Diamond is still looking for her permanent home, so if you're a resident of Orange County, why not consider adding a furry friend to your family?

Diamond is a very sweet pup, and good with people. She is quick to trust, and still playful, given her young age. Readers interested in learning more can check out her page here.

There's surely merit in the old adage, diamonds are a girl's (or a guy's) best friend!
