Pet Of The Week: Diamond

GREAT NEWS, Pet Of The Week, Wes was adopted last weekend! All your likes & shares paid off and he has a forever home. We are so excited for him! Meet this week’s special girl, Diamond.

Name: Diamond
Sex: Female
Breed: Boxer/Pit-bull Terrier Mix
Age: 7 Years Old
Days in Shelter/Foster Care: 325
Animal ID: A626087


Diamond is a 7 year old Boxer/Pit-bull Terrier Mix. Diamond has been with Austin Animal Center and her foster mom Cristy, for 325 days now !!

Diamond is a true gem!  She is house trained, walks well on a leash and will sit for treats as she very carefully takes them from your hand.  She does the cutest “rollover move” along with the body shake that tells you how happy she is to see you.   She loves her daily walks where she will look back at you as if to make sure that you are still there.  She also enjoys going for a ride in the car.  Although this girl still loves to play, what she really wants is to curl up next to you for pets and belly rubs or is content to just be near.  She is a mature girl and done with that silly puppy stage so she fits well into a home.  She seems good with other dogs but we encourage anyone adopting to schedule a Meet and Greet with their dog and Diamond.  She has lived with cats.   If you are looking for a companion that has it all – look at Diamond, she is a rare find! Please contact her foster, Christy at if you would like to meet this special girl.

Don’t forget about our previous Pet’s Of The Week that are still looking for a home.
