A homeless dog in Wantagh, New York, has been waiting for years to be adopted. Sad enough that the senior pit bull is homeless, but nobody has come to meet her in years….
Her name is Diamond and she was surrendered to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter when her owner decided that they could no longer care for her. Diamond’s Petfinder biography reads, in part:
Diamond is 9 1/2 years old, 65 pounds, and has the most gorgeous brownish/ reddish fur and floppy ears. Diamond had lived in the same home her entire life, and now founds herself alone, and homeless, at her age. We are all heartbroken for her.
Diamond is a house dog who now lives in a kennel run – she knows many obedience commands and she adores people. It’s impossible to fathom the depth of her heartache now that she has lost her family, and her home. Please help Diamond find a new family by sharing her adoption information.
