Diamond in the Ruff lived her whole life on a chain with no chance to run and play. When her owners moved away, they left her right there. On her chain.
New folks moved in and took care of her for awhile, until Stray Rescue of St Louis stepped up and rescued Diamond.
These days Diamond calls Stray Rescue's Pine Street Animal Shelter home. No more chains in her life, she loves her walks. This photo has caught Diamond in mid-stride, heading out the door to romp and play.
According to Stray Rescue, Diamond is a big, silly, goofy dog with a great smile. She asks for very little in life: some kind words, loving attention, and some space to play.
Diamond in the Ruff is a Pit Bull Terrier mixed breed dog. She weighs 55 pounds and is 3 years old.
Can't adopt right now? Consider fostering Diamond or another of the dogs at Stray Rescue. For every dog that goes into foster care, another dog can be rescued from the hard, hot streets of St Louis.
