Meet Diamond, a very spry and loving 11-12 year-old Boxer who has lots of spunk for a senior. This lovely lady found herself homeless at an overcrowded county dog shelter. The shelter was able to locate her owners but they never came to claim her so she made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could take her time finding a wonderful new home for her golden years. We’ve been amazed at how active this girl is for a senior. She LOVES people and certainly isn’t letting the fact that she’s faced with finding a new home at her age get her down. Diamond makes fast friends with people and shortly after meeting someone new, is in their lap giving lots of kisses. She gets along well with other dogs but doesn’t really enjoy having rowdy young dogs in her space. If there’s a canine buddy in her new home, she would prefer the dog to be on the calmer side. Diamond is NOT a fan of cats so must have a kitty-free home. She is eager to sit for a treat and loves to go for a walk but is very strong on a leash. She does best when on a harness when out for a walk. Diamond seems to have lost most if not all of her hearing but can spot a treat from a mile away so her eyesight is good. She currently weighs about 38 pounds but is thin and working on gaining a few pounds to reach her ideal weight. Her adoption fee is $200. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. Since coming to Canine Lifeline, Diamond has had a recent dental cleaning so now has an even prettier smile! As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Diamond. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
