Diamond [dahy-muh nd], noun: ‘a precious stone consisting of a clear and colorless crystalline form of pure carbon, the hardest naturally occurring substance.‘
Often expensive and irreplaceable, diamonds are used by people everywhere as tokens of love and appreciation or as a gift for any special occasion. There are all different types, each one unique and valuable in their own way. I believe that we at HSNEGA have the rarest Diamond of all, a gentle 7-year-old Retriever mix.
No one in the world will have a dog like her, because she’s a true rarity. She’s a golden girl, older in age but still knows how to have a good time. Her beautiful soft golden yellow coat shines in the sun, her eyes sparkle and her smile could light up a whole room. Classy, elegant, and timeless… just like the stone she was named after and you can’t get any better than that.
Like any amazing treasure, we don’t know much about her history. Diamond came from another shelter, she was out of time and needed a second chance and at HSNEGA we are all about second chances. We know that some dogs just need more time, and with a precious jewel like Diamond, we wanted to make sure she got all the time she needed.
She shines a light into everyone who meets her at the shelter. I know she makes me happy when I get to spend time with her. I love petting her and telling her how beautiful she is and how she’ll find a home soon. I love how her tail wags the minute you come up to her kennel door and she just instantly greets you with a smile. I think she would love a family to call her own, a nice bed to sleep in, a couch to nap on, and the occasional crumb off the floor (you know the good stuff that gets dropped when you’re not looking).
The word in the Bark Park is that Diamond is a joy to care for: she walks nicely on a leash, seems friendly with other dogs, and would most likely be good in a home with children. You can always bring them in to meet her! After all, they say diamonds are a girl’s best friend and dogs are mans best friend. Meaning that Diamond is the perfect fit for anyone!
Audrey Hepburn had breakfast at Tiffany’s, but I don’t think she ever saw a diamond like this one. You don’t have to go to Jared, and while kisses do begin with Kay, why go looking for diamonds when you can adopt one?
Diamond is an older girl like I mentioned before, but that doesn’t mean she’s got nothing left to give. She’s got a lot of love in her heart and she just needs a family to share it with.
Come meet our biggest treasure, you won’t be disappointed!
