Meet this gem of a dog, Diamond! Although she came to us primarily as an outdoor hunting dog, this 7 year old Brittany quickly learned to enjoy the creature comforts of home. She thrives on the affection of her humans, and will be a great addition to your home and family.Diamond is an outstanding dog in many ways. She is bright and athletic, noticing all manner of flying creatures, from birds to butterflies. Her point stance is crisp and alert. She has great speed and strength, so a fenced-in yard with room to roam is required. She is learning to walk well with her leash and harness. Diamond is excelling with her crate training. Not motivated by food, high praise is the way to Diamond’s heart. She was anxious the first 36 hours with us, but quickly warmed up to both adults and school-aged children alike. She has visited elementary classrooms and middle school groups with ease, soaking up affection from the crowds. Her excellent personality was remarked upon by both the Vet and groomer. Due to the heat, her thick and feathery curls were trimmed for summer. But her coat will not require intensive grooming.Diamond has interacted with both puppies and adult dogs. She will correct a rambunctious puppy with a motherly nip after enduring the 4th or 5th insult, which any good parent will appreciate. Otherwise, she is a calm and polite dog around other animals. While she was initially nervous to ride in a car, she now can take daily trips in the car. She will even be your co-pilot, enjoying the view through the windshield. She is not usually a vocal dog, and can handle neighbors walking or cars and planes passing by without comment.Diamond would excel most in a home with owners who do not crate her all day, but rather can interact indoors and outdoors regularly. If you need a companion to sit outside with you while you garden, or keep you active with daily walks, Diamond will shine brightly for you. Please no sight unseen adoptions for our girl. Family members (human and canine) must meet to assure we have a good match. If you are interested in Ms. Diamond, complete theadoption applicationDiamond is one of four dogs taken in by rescue.
